Novena for the Cause of Life – October 4-October 12

Brothers,

As our nation lives through these times of great consequence, the Knights of Columbus has developed a Novena for the Cause of Life, to run from October 4-October 12.  October is Respect Life Month, an initiative of the USCCB.

John McCulla was kind enough to send the poster promoting the Novena below.  Each day of the Novena sets forth a reflection from Pope Francis to contemplate as you pray a decade of the Rosary. At the conclusion of the decade, please pray the prayer authored by Saint Pope John Paul II.

If everyone in our Council takes up these prayers, we will add to a powerful witness for the protection of all life, from conception until natural death.

Let’s do our part, men!

Fraternally,
Mike K.

Food Drive Success for St Peter’s

Brothers, thanks once more for a great morning of fellowship and service this past Saturday.

Between the steady traffic sandwiched between two major waves, it was a successful haul for St. Peter’s Church and Pantry located in the heart of downtown.  We raised over $600 in Kroger gift cards, and over 500 pounds of groceries and supplies.  Special thanks for those who helped us unload on the other end.

John, while you could not be there this one time, your organizational skills remain unparalleled, as the event went off without a hitch (unless you count the one attached to Greg’s trailer—once more Greg thank you for that!).  Thanks for your encouragement and getting the word out as always!

For those of you who have not yet “worked” one of these drives, it is amazing how fast the time moves, when you are getting to know and see people, and make a difference.  As such, it doesn’t feel like “work” at all.

Please consider coming out for an hour or three, November 7th for the next food drive, and/or November 14th for the coat drive. More info to follow!

Vivat Jesus!
