National March for Life in Washington D. C. in Jan. 2016.

    During the June K of C meeting after a short discussion, it was unanimously voted to support a motion to fund the cost of two high school students to attend the National March for Life in Washington D. C. in Jan. 2016.  The cost is capped at $400.00 per student.  The K of C officers are asking members to support this project with your financial support.  We feel that this is a valuable opportunity for the students.  Contributions will be welcomed at the July, Aug., and Sept. meetings.  Mail-ins will also be solicited.  This is the first time the Council officers have asked the members to make a donation to support the Pro Life project.

Bingo Via Christe, July 19 and August 16

    Every third Sunday of each month, Council 652 sponsors a Bingo Party at Via Christe Assisted Living, 3636 California Street, at 1:30pm – 3:00pm.  This is a smaller group, but some individuals need more help.  Volunteers are needed!!  Please!!  Contact Therial Bynum at 402-957-4159.

Bingo St Joseph Villa, July 27 and August 24

    St. Joseph Villa Bingo.  Every fourth Monday of each month, Council 652 sponsors a Bingo Night at St. Joseph Villa, 10th and Martha.  It is great to see the group get into the game.  We need Volunteers!!!  This is also an activity that you can have your children (11yrs. and up) get involved with.  It usually takes only one and a half hours.   Can you and your family spare that every two or three months?!?  Please!!  Contact Leo Batenhorst at 402-553-5729.


    Mark your calendars and reserve Friday, August 14 for our annual baseball night out at Werner Park.  We start the evening at 5:30p.m with a tailgate party in the grass area at the SW end of the North parking lot with hot dogs, brats, pop, chips and other refreshments.  Then it’s off to the game at 7:05.  This will be an evening for your entire family.  Bring a prospective member.

Priest Appreciation Dinner, July 27. April 18, 6:00pm – 9:00pm

    The Fr. Michael P. Dowling Assembly #594 will be hosting their annual Priest’s of the Archdiocese of Omaha Appreciation Dinner at Mount Michael Abbey in Elkhorn, Nebraska on Monday, July 27, 2015.  The meal (A fantastic steak dinner) will be $20.00 for non – clergy, and refreshments will be provided (contributions appreciated).  You can pay at the event and reservations are not necessary, but it would be a good idea to make them by calling Paul Lehn at 402-677-5260, so that they can have some kind of idea of a count.

       Your Knights of Columbus insurance program is second to none.  Knights of Columbus life insurance represents a safety net for Catholic families that’s unsurpassed, and we’re proud of that.  We’re also concerned.  Why?  Because there are many Knights of Columbus members who have no life insurance with us.  I suspect that, for many of those members, tomorrow has become next week, next month or next year.  Don’t be one of them.  Don’t wait for the bell to ring.  It isn’t going to.
