Thanksgiving Dinners

posted Oct 2, 2017, 5:44 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Oct 3, 2017, 5:52 PM ]

Each Thanksgiving for many years, your K of C has delivered free Thanksgiving dinners to shut in and other needy members of our local area. This is a great project that enables many people to have a full Thanksgiving din­ner, like most of us have had every year – for as long as we can remember. 

This year is no different, except this year we need a chairman to manage the event. Although it is a one day event, a fair amount of planning and ordering of sup­plies is necessary. When was the last time YOU chaired -- or co-chaired-an event? How about doing this one? Please contact Bernie Fiedler ( 419 605- 2345) if you can help out.

Take Action Today to End Late Term Abortions

posted Sep 29, 2017, 5:29 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Sep 29, 2017, 5:29 AM ]

Dear Brother Knight,
Your immediate action is needed to support national legislation that would strengthen the culture of life in the United States.
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  This life-saving legislation would ban abortions at the point when scientists agree unborn children begin to feel pain in the womb (approximately 20 weeks).  
Earlier this year, our Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found that 59% of Americans support this type of ban on abortion, including a majority who consider themselves pro-choice!
At our most recent Supreme Convention in St. Louis, we resolved “to speak out to our elected representatives about the need to enact legislation protecting human life in all its stages.”  I urge you to contact your Member of Congress today and express your support for H.R. 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
You can do this easily by visiting our Action Alert Center to email your Congressman.  You can also look up your Congressman’s phone number and call their offices in Washington directly (just enter your zip code on the top right corner to look up your Congressman’s information).
Thank you for your attention to this important matter and for helping to build a culture of life.
Carl Anderson
Supreme Knight

Brother Knight, 
Many people in the Gulf Coast of Texas are reeling from the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey this weekend. Thousands have evacuated their homes, many of which have been damaged or destroyed. 
The recovery process is going to be a long and painful one, and your support is urgently needed.
Please DONATE TODAY to help those suffering such devastation. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts. This includes providing immediate needs such as food, clean water, shelter and other necessities. 
God bless you for your support.

Prayers for Peace and Reconciliation

posted Aug 24, 2017, 12:30 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Aug 29, 2017, 10:38 AM ]

Members of the Knights of Columbus and their families around the world are encouraged to pray for peace and reconciliation in their respective countries.

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson called for prayers for peace and reconciliation in his Annual Report to the 135th Supreme Convention, August 1 in St. Louis. Citing the recent increase in political violence, including the shooting of members of Congress last June on a baseball field outside of Washington, D.C., he said:

“Violence and the rhetoric of violence have no place as a style of politics in America or any other country. … I call upon all my brother Knights and their families to again seek the intercession of Mary, Queen of Peace.”

Quoting from the Holy Father’s message for the 50th World Day of Peace, Anderson said, “Pope Francis urged people everywhere to adopt nonviolence as a style of politics — a style based on the recognition, ‘that the image and likeness of God in each person will enable us to acknowledge one another as sacred gifts endowed with immense dignity.’”

The supreme knight noted that words of Pope Benedict XVI, repeated by Pope Francis in his World Day of Peace message, struck him as especially appropriate for today’s political climate: “For Christians, nonviolence is not merely tactical behavior but a person’s way of being — the attitude of one who is so convinced of God’s love and power that he or she is not afraid to tackle evil with the weapons of love and truth alone.”

“Convinced of God’s Love and Power” was the theme of this year’s Supreme Convention.

In his report, Supreme Knight Anderson noted that “Pope Francis signed his message of peace on the feast of the Immaculate Conception” and asked “Can it simply be a coincidence that the Immaculate Conception is named patroness of the United States?” The prayer cards feature a mosaic depiction of the Immaculate Conception from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

A printable card of traditional Marian prayers is available online for use by Knights, their families and others. The texts are as follows: 


Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

Repeat three times:

We fly to your protection, O holy Mother of God;
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Mary Immaculate, Queen of Peace,
pray for us and our country!
