Announcements

Tune in for two new K of C documentaries airing across the U.S.

posted May 13, 2019, 12:29 PM by Michael Kahny

We are thrilled to share that two very special Knights of Columbus documentary projects will be airing on U.S. television networks in the coming weeks — “Warriors to Lourdes” and “Everyday Heroes.” Both of these films capture compelling personal stories of individuals who have found strength through their faith and for whom the Knights of Columbus have played a special role. 

These moving films are an excellent way for the Knights to help show the world who we are as an organization. While most people have heard of the Knights of Columbus, there are many who are not well-acquainted with the breadth and character of the Order.  We welcome your assistance in promoting these two documentaries. We invite you to share our social media posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 
 
Warriors to Lourdes

There is an invisible wound of war that is only beginning to draw public attention. In addition to mental and emotional suffering, moral injury represents the spiritual dimension of trauma.

This important and timely topic is brought to life with searing emotion in Warriors to Lourdes, a new documentary film produced by the Knights of Columbus.

This 28-minute film highlights the transformative experience of the annual Warriors to Lourdes pilgrimage for wounded, ill and injured veterans seeking physical and spiritual healing. Through very personal accounts of men and women in uniform, along with those of military chaplains, the film showcases the life-changing impact of this spiritual pilgrimage. These stories reveal that sometimes the greatest acts of courage occur not on the battlefield but inside the human heart.

Schedule of airings and the movie trailer can be found here.

 
Everyday Heroes

Throughout history, humanity has been enthralled by the idea of Heroes. From Hercules to Superman, the heroic narrative in literature, the arts and culture has been passed from one generation to the next.

But heroism is not some unattainable ideal. It is not reserved for only mythology. Heroism is a worthy goal that lies within our grasp.

That is the central message of Everyday Heroes, a new documentary film featuring the witnesses of remarkable Brother Knights whose courage, faith and commitment to charity embody the mission of the Knights of Columbus. 

 

From the college football star who selflessly put the needs of others before his own to the Special Olympics athlete who gives witness to the dignity of all human life — these stories demonstrate how the betterment of our world ultimately begins with the individual human heart.

Schedule of airings and the movie trailer can be found here.

Collecting for the "Measure Up" Campaign

posted Apr 14, 2019, 2:37 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Apr 14, 2019, 2:40 PM ]


To all Knights:


The weekend of May 4th and 5th, 2019 the Delphos K of C will collect for the “Measure Up” campaign.  This annual K of C fundraising campaign raises money that is split evenly between both Delphos schools for the benefit of the children with development disabilities.  This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to make a donation of money with just a few minutes of our time after mass.   We can show our support for these children by helping to collect at one of the weekend masses at Delphos St. Johns.  Please come to the rear vestibule after Communion to get the basket, and collect at one of the doors.



"Unplanned" - In Theaters Now

posted Apr 2, 2019, 11:08 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Apr 2, 2019, 11:24 AM ]

The Movie "Unplanned" is one that has been widely publicized. The story is about the experience of Abbey Johnson. As one of the youngest Planned Parent­hood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in over 20,000 abortions and counseled countless women on their reproductive choices. Her passion regarding a woman's right to choose led her to fight to enact legislation that supported her passion. That is until the day she saw something that changed everything. The "true story" movie is about a life changing event. The movie is rated "R", and is currently being shown at Regal Theaters, 2830 West Elm St, Lima, Ohio. Phone 844-462-7342

RED CROSS CPR TRAINING

posted Mar 7, 2019, 5:36 AM by Michael Kahny


Mr. Gene Border from the Lima Red Cross will come to the K of C Hall for CPR training. We'll have the training immediately after the March business meet­ing on March 11, 2019.

This is a "hands only" CPR training (no mouth to mouth), and will not result in any certifi­cate because of the amount of time that we'll have. If you want to receive a certificate, we'll have to look into what it takes.

This training will teach how to use chest compression to keep blood flowing in the event of a heart failure. This training is available to members, spouses, and widows of deceased mem­bers.

Why not come out? If we are fortunate, we'll never need the training, but you might be able to save someone's life.

The next person to need CPR might be you, or me! Having people around who know have had training just makes sense.

I do need to know how many people will be here for the train­ing so Gene can be prepared. We have to limit the session to 20 people, so contact me as soon as possible. Hopefully, we'll have to schedule another session for those who can't get into this one.

If you have questions or want to make a reservation, send Tom Odenweller an email to toden@bright.net, or call me at 419 230-2893, or stop out at the Hall on Thursday evenings.

Contact Your Senators to Protect Life!

posted Feb 22, 2019, 10:47 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 22, 2019, 10:47 AM ]

Dear Brother Knight,
 
I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators today, and ask them to take a strong stance against infanticide by supporting the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
 
This common sense legislation requires that medical professionals exercise the same degree of care when a failed abortion results in a live birth as they would for a regular delivery.
 
The U.S. Senate will take an important vote on this legislation Monday evening, so they need to hear from you immediately.
 
Our Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found that 56% of Americans believe that an unborn child is a unique life and 75% would limit abortion to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy.  However, I think we can all agree that a newborn child has a right to the best care possible, no matter what the circumstances of their birth.
 
Please visit our Action Alert Center to email your Senators in support of this life saving legislation.  If you prefer, you can also call their offices in Washington directly.
 
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
 
Fraternally,
Carl Anderson
Supreme Knight

Help Send a Warrior on the Pilgrimage of a Lifetime

posted Feb 11, 2019, 6:21 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 11, 2019, 6:22 AM ]

You don’t have to go to war to feel its devastating effects. As a military wife, I have witnessed my husband change following his deployments and training. Though I'm proud of his service, the effects on our marriage have been ravaging. But there's hope. There is Lourdes. As a wife and caregiver, I am so blessed to have been part of the Warrior to Lourdes pilgrimage, and I tell you, I found peace, joy, friendship and healing to carry on my call as a military wife.

— Claudia J., Marine Corps Spouse and Nurse, 2018 Volunteer

Countless of our warriors carry visible and invisible “wounds of war.” Whether they suffer physical, mental or spiritual trauma, their wounds are the result of their sacrifice and dedication to the protection of our great nation and the American people.

It is now our turn to reach out to them and their families, to help free them from isolation and brokenness and aid them in their search for healing, peace and reconciliation.

Join our efforts by supporting the annual Warrior to Lourdes Pilgrimage. Each donation of $2,600 sends a pilgrim to Lourdes. Please give what you can — every dollar you donate makes a difference.
