Please help your Knights of Columbus celebrate Father McGivney Week (August 9-16), Founder of the Knights of Columbus, by donating canned food to the Social Concerns Food Pantry, August 14-15. Food collection will take place during the Masses (out front) as is done with the food collection at the beginning of each month. Fr. Michael J. McGivney (officially declared “blessed” at his beatification Mass held on Oct. 31. 2020 by Pope Francis) established the Knights of Columbus in 1882 at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut. Since then, the Knights have grown to a membership of nearly two million strong worldwide, assisting local communities through national efforts and global outreach with works of charity.
Thank You and God Bless!
SK Eddy Merlet, Grand Knight (Council 14573)
