The State monthly Rosary Challenge is still underway, congratulations to Council #13003 Merrillville, IN. Their council prayed 278 rosaries, Indiana's highest for the month of November. District Deputy James Premeske confirmed the numbers. William Berrier the Grand Knight of 55 members said the council's best fundraiser is a pork chop dinner which typically raises approximately $900.00/event.
