People With Intellectual Disabilities Drive logoBrother Knights, we need your help! This year Fry’s and Safeway have decided to no longer allow the Knights to conduct the People With Intellectual Disabilities Drive (Tootsie Roll Drives) at their locations. To make up for this, we need as many Knights as possible to help solicit funds at every weekend Mass at OLMC the weekend of November 9-10th.  Please join us for 10-15 minutes after the Mass you attend and help collect monies for a very worthy cause.  Vivat Jesus!

Council Membership Drive

Our Council is holding its Semi-Annual Membership Drive on the weekend of March 23-24.  Volunteers are needed after all Masses to speak to prospective new members and answer any questions they may have.  A special Membership “Knight” is also being held Monday night at 7:30pm in McCready Hall.  Volunteers are need to answer questions and speak to their experiences as Knights.  Thank you for your support of this important Council activity!

Corporate Mass & Fifth Sunday Rosary

The Council is holding a Corporate Mass with a 5th Sunday Rosary Program to follow it, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish on Sunday March 31st at 9 AM. All Knights and their families are welcome to join us and sit together as a group at Mass, to show our unity and support for our council and our parish. Directly following the Mass, brothers from our council will lead all those attending in the 5th Sunday Rosary. If possible, though not required, please wear either your Knights shirts or name badges.
The Supreme Knight asked all of us to accelerate our efforts to work with our pastors to strengthen our parishes and seek to strengthen Christian family life. To help bring parishioners together in a spiritual activity and promote devotion to Mary, the Knights of Columbus Supreme council announced this new church activity, the 5th Sunday Rosary Program. Knights, their families and other parishioners are encouraged to pray the rosary as a corporate body every time a 5th Sunday occurs during a month. Here is a link to a publication that speaks to the Building the Domestic Church initiative and how you can incorporate this into your family life.
Please come join us for our Corporate Mass and 5th Sunday Rosary.
