It takes a council of K of C men to be present and to be noticed – you are making a difference at St Bridget!
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Knights of Columbus cookout on Friday. We had an excellent turnout of over 50 knights, spouses, clergy and guests. And to all of you who couldn’t participate, thanks for letting us know. We hope to get you there next year. It was a terrific party!
A special word of appreciation goes out to Madeline and Rick Witty, our gracious host again this year. You have a lovely home and the perfect spot for this wonderful party. Thank you for your gracious hospitality, and for Rick’s service as soon to be “past grand knight”. And to John B, our chef for the evening, thanks for cooking all the dogs and burgers to perfection!!! And the beer selection courtesy of John M.
Speaking of hotdogs, this coming Sunday is father’s day, and the Knights will be hosting “Dogs For Dads” after Mass on Sunday. Ron needs a little help setting up on Sunday morning, and breaking down after Noon. Please consider stopping by to assist around 7:30 AM. He will need help with the tent and some tables. And again after the Mass you attend, please stop by and see if you can lend a hand serving. We will be located in the School parking lot near the rear entry to the church.
Volunteers are also needed to hand out Tootsie Rolls for KOVAR donations after each Mass. If you are not helping with the Dogs, please grab a vest and jump in to help with KOVAR.
We are counting on everyone’s participation this weekend! Thanks for being a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 5476!!!
Supreme Knight Carl Anderson announced that the Knights of Columbus set a new record for charitable giving and volunteerism. In 2017, Knights and their families gave more than $185 million to charitable causes and volunteered 75.6 million hours of their time.
Through programs such as Coats for Kids, Food for Families, and through our work with partners like Special Olympics, The Global Wheelchair Fund, and the Archdiocese for the Military Services, Knights made a difference. We’re doing more, for more people, than ever before. But we need men like you to keep up this important work.
