Year of Mercy Closing Adoration

monstranceBrothers, Council 6627 has been invited to participate in 24 Hours of Adoration in Thanksgiving for the Year of Mercy.  Adoration runs from November 18 at 6pm to November 19 at 6pm and is located at OLMC in the South Deanery.  Fr. John has asked the Knights to provide support for the 1am – 2am shift on November 19.  Please support the Council and the Parish during that time period, or any other time in which you are available.  Adoration is a great opportunity to spend some quiet time with our Lord.  We hope to see you there.

Corporate Mass and 5th Sunday Rosary

On Sunday October 30th at 9AM, all Knights and their families are invited to attend the 9AM Mass together.  A separate area will be cordoned off for us all to sit together.  Knights shirts or name badges are encouraged but not required.  After the Mass, we will be leading a Rosary for the Parish together:

In the spirit of unity the Knights of Columbus of  Mount Carmel parish are pleased to invite everyone to join us as we gather to pray  a 5th Sunday Rosary.  We encourage everyone to join us next in the church  Sunday, October 30th immediately following the 9am Mass. So, if you attend the 9am Mass plan to stay and pray! If you attend the 11am Mass, don’t forget to come early and pray! Knights will be supplying the finger rosaries and prayer cards or parishioners may use their own rosary.
