I pray you had an enjoyable Christmas with your family and a Happy New Year! Now is the time to have your officers meeting to plan any faith-based activities with your parish Priest.
Many councils are planning a parish spiritual reflection program called "The Veil Removed" for the Lenten season. Last month Council # 8082 in Dyer prayed a living rosary with lit candles, 50 participated and closing with a solo of Ave Maria by a brother knight. Council #12951 participated in corporate communion Mass. Ben Janczewski Grand Knight of council #17043 said "We completed "into the breach" during advent, it was a great event."
I want to share a letter from Terry Waters of Cross Catholic outreach addressed to the Knights of Columbus: “Brother Knights, your generous gifts of time, talent and financial support to Cross Catholic Outreach initiatives — such as food packing events and Box of Joy — have allowed us to better serve the poor this past year. Through your love and service, we were able to provide life-transforming material and spiritual aid and restore lost hope.”
On behalf of the children and families that benefited, we thank you. May God bless you and your loved ones today and in the year ahead.
