Knights of Columbus Father McGivney Food Drive

Please help your Knights of Columbus celebrate Father McGivney Week (August 9th-16th), founder of the Knights of Columbus, by donating canned food to the Social Concerns Food Pantry, August 15th-16th. Food collection will take place during the Masses (out front) as is done with the food collection at the beginning of each month. Father Michael J. McGivney (Venerated and soon to be Beatified) 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 2 million strong worldwide and assist local communities, national efforts and global outreach with works of charity. Thank You and God Bless! –SK Rob Light, Grand Knight (Council 14573)

Moment of Inspiration

This past week, I created the following Prayer to our Guardian Angel for our school students. I would appreciate if you would help me and pass it onto all parents. Perhaps you may even want to use the prayer yourself.

Prayer to my Guardian Angel

Dear Guardian Angel,

I am glad that you are my companion on the journey of life.

This day, watch over me and protect me from all harm in body, mind and spirit.

Help me to follow Jesus' Way of Love.

Help me to be aware of your caring presence and to often pray to you.

Thank you for being my friend and protector.



Sally Neher, passed to eternal life on August 6th
