The KofC annual “Light up for Christ” ceremony is Saturday 12/5 after the 5 PM Mass outside the church. The ceremony starts at/around 6 PM. We should be done by 6:30 PM, with all cleanup completed by 7:00 PM. We are asking Knights to bring a commercial pre-packaged baked good to the Light up ceremony if possible. Masks will be required and social distancing guidelines will be observed. We hope to see you and your families there!
Fr. Jerome will be leading us in an Advent Retreat next Saturday December 5th, starting at 9 AM and concluding about 2 PM. Because of the non-availability of facilities at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, We will be meeting at the NEWMAN CENTER next to ASU. Families are invited.
Parking is available in a parking lot off East 7th Street, adjacent and due north of the Newman Center. You can enter into the Newman Center from the back gate. The address of the Newman Center is 230 E University, NW corner of University and College. We are asking everyone to bring their own food and drinks for lunch. Masks are required and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
All Council activities have been temporarily suspended in order to help protect our community against the spread of the Coronavirus. Friday Fish Fry’s have been cancelled for the remainder of the Lenten Season. Additional information is available for members and their families on the websites of the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL and WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. Be aware that the elderly and sick are highly vulnerable to this disease.
Be mindful of God’s love and mercy in this time of high anxiety and remember to be patient, continue to support for others, and pray for a quick end to the pandemic event. May God bless you, and keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe.
Lent is just around the corner and that means Easter is close by. The Knights will help begin the Lenten season with a tasty Fish Fry in McCready Hall on Ash Wednesday, February 26, and every Friday during Lent (except March 27, and Good Friday), from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Help from Brother Knights is needed to prepare, serve and clean up. Setup begins at 3:30pm and cleanup is finished by about 8:30 pm. Bring the family. Your children and wife will hug you for your generosity. And, back by popular demand, FISH TACOS!!! Please join us.
