Lenten Fish Fries will begin on Friday, February 16 and runs every Friday thru March 30. Drive-thru & dine-in dinners are served from 4pm until 7pm.

As always, it takes a lot of help to serve the amount of delicious food that our supporters enjoy. If you can help, please do so. 

If you have questions, contact Tom Odenweller, 419 230-2893, or come out on any Friday morn­ing, or any time on when we are working on this project. 

We always need help on Fridays during Lent, so check in if you can. We have volunteers doing all the work necessary to make this project a wonderful success. A success not only in money raised for your K of C, but also providing a time and place for families and friends to visit. 

Please help if you can. Make this the year that you sacrifice some of your time for a great Lenten project. Serving begins at 4:00 PM every Friday in Lent. 

Remember, it takes a lot of help, and we need some new guys to get involved. Please help if you can. Contact Tom Odenweller if you have questions or suggestions. 

Online Membership

posted Feb 8, 2018, 11:59 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 8, 2018, 12:57 PM ]

This initiative is an important step for our Order, and presents a tremendous opportunity for membership growth and engagement. The initiative allows for:

  • A Faster Way to Join – One of the most common objections to joining the Knights of Columbus is “I don’t have time.” Through Online Membership, a join process that can take as many as two months now takes five minutes.
  • A Digital Experience – This initiative provides a new membership experience that is tailored to younger men and busier men who may not yet be ready for council-based membership. This low-pressure, low-commitment and digital experience meets men where they are, helps to form them as Catholic men, and enables us to bring more men into the fold.
  • An Amplified Message – The Online Membership initiative is backed by a substantial marketing campaign that will find and work to convert prospective members.

Safe Haven Baby Box

posted Feb 5, 2018, 6:27 AM by Mike Kahny

In addition to the ultrasound machine, The Delphos Knights of Columbus are also raising funds for a “Safe Haven Baby Box” that, hopefully, will soon be installed at the Delphos Fire Department. Both Monica Kelsey and Teri Grothaus came to our January business meeting to talk about this project. Monica told her very powerful personal story about abandoned babies that left no doubt of the support from the K of C.

When installed, a parent will be able to anonymously leave a baby in the box and it will immediately alert necessary personnel to assist the baby. In addition, when possible, these folks counsel mothers to help them. You can help too. Donate to: K of C, “Safe Haven Baby Box”, PO Box 182, Delphos, OH 45833, or drop your donation off at the hall on any Thursday evening.

If you have any questions, please contact me: Grand Knight, Bernie Fiedler, 419-605-2345.

Ultrasound Machine Needed

posted Jan 14, 2018, 5:53 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Jan 14, 2018, 5:53 PM ]

The local Knights of Columbus Council and Councils in the immediate area are raising funds for a new Ultrasound machine for the Heartbeat or Community Pregnancy Center located in Lima. The Supreme K of C Council will provide matching funds toward the machine, local funds needed are $11,750. The Diocese of Toledo and the Supreme Council approved the purchase of a new machine.

In 2011, an ultrasound machine was installed in Heartbeat of Lima in rooms adjacent to the abortion clinic through funds collected through the K of C, good news - the abortion clinic closed since that time. The machine is beyond repair and needs to be replaced. It was repaired once at a cost of $10,000.

Dr. Kindig the Heartbeat Medical Director reports that over 700 ultrasounds, averaging over 100 a year have been performed. Many women have chosen life over abortion after viewing the image of a heartbeat at 5 weeks and 6 days, a jumping baby at 7 weeks, toes and fingers at 8 weeks. He says that one baby a week is saved by using the machine.

The K of C would like to ask for your support, either by donating after all Delphos St. John's masses the weekend of January 20th and 21st or sending your donation of either cash or check made payable to K of C Ultrasound Project, P.O. Box 182, Delphos, OH 45833.

We thank you and your families for participating in this cause. I am sure that God will Bless you for saving lives.

Bernard Fielder,
Grand Knight Delphos Council

Dear Brother Knight,

As 2017 comes to a close, we look back with gratitude for the time, commitment and dedication of everyone whose tireless sacrifices have made so many good works possible during the past year. And to honor your sacrifices and service to Christ, his Church and to all those in need, we made a short video — it's our small way of saying thanks.
We look forward to reaching even greater heights of charity in 2018, and we wish you and your families a most blessed New Year!
