We Honor Our Veterans

posted Nov 8, 2019, 3:31 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Nov 8, 2019, 3:31 PM ]

Dear Brother Knights:

The Knights of Columbus has counted hundreds of thousands of veterans as members, and we recently highlighted two who received the Medal of Honor. This Veterans Day, we recognize all the everyday heroes who have served their country in uniform in all the nations where our Order has a presence. No matter where or when they served, on this Veterans Day we honor those who stepped up and sacrificed for family, freedom and faith. May God bless them, even as we thank them. 

Fraternally, 

Carl A. Anderson
Supreme Knight

Please Help Hurrican Dorian Victims

posted Sep 7, 2019, 5:56 AM by Michael Kahny

Brother Knight:

In the 36 hours since Hurricane Dorian tracked destruction through the Bahamas, the Knights have raised over $178,500 to support disaster relief.  Supplies, food, and water are on their way to those who need it in Grand Bahama. The cost of the supplies we sent is well above what we have raised to date and the need continues to grow.  In addition, we have also sent support to the communities affected in the Carolinas. 

With your continued generosity Knights in the Bahamas, Florida and the Carolinas can continue to serve the affected communities in their jurisdictions. With your help, they can increase support and have the tools necessary to meet the needs of those we jointly serve.

As Supreme Knight Carl Anderson reminds us, “When disaster strikes, we strike back with service.” What are you waiting for?

Pray, serve, GIVE today — 100% of your support goes directly to disaster relief!

Abomination

posted May 30, 2019, 12:27 PM by Mike Kahny   [ updated May 30, 2019, 12:29 PM ]

  Dr. Jim Ferguson from Knoxville, TN, wrote an article for the "Knoxville Focus" a few months ago entitled "Abomination". It is an article about abortion, primarily "late term" abortion. He wrote that only 9 of the 28 people he asked about the New York law that allows abortion up to the time of birth, and that can be done by non-doctors, were aware of the law. He also mentioned that the Governor of Virginia supported ending the life of an 'infant" after delivery if the mother says so. 

At the end of the article, Dr. Ferguson wrote, 
 
"You may have heard the famous poem by the German Lutheran minister, Martin Niemoller, written during the Nazi reign of terror". 
 
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - 
    Because I was not a socialist. 
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out - 
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -
    Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

Dr. Ferguson continued, ''Now, I challenge you to substitute ''the unborn" for socialist, trade union­ists, or Jews. If we do not believe in the sanctity of human life then it won't matter whether we build Trump's wall, balance the budget, or cure cancer. We will have turned a blind eye to injustice and are already gangrenous and rotting away from the inside."

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.
