A note from the Grand Knight
Spring is upon us. We are seeing warmer days, flowers are beginning to pop up through the ground, birds returning and singing to start each new day.
The Knights have been busy working several Fish Fries to serve our church community. They have been working hard and have provided excellent fish every Friday during Lent.
As we move forward, The Mother’s Day Flower sale is approaching quickly, May 12th & 13th starting at the corner of Barker and Woodland on Friday and Saturday morning and moving up to the Legacy Center in the afternoon. The weather has had many warmer days so the flowers will be as beautiful as ever so make plans to stop by and pick up your Mother’s Day flowers to be enjoyed all Summer and Fall.
2023 has started off with a bang and keeps getting better as we move forward. Port a Pit Chicken on Father’s Day weekend is also in the works and so much more.
Your Knights of Columbus appreciate all of the support given to us as we continue to serve Queen of All Saints and the community around us. We thank you and look forward to serving you moving forward.
Thank you and God Bless!

Bruce, Jim Whelan and Marty Campanella attended the state convention on May 5-7. In the news:
- Challenge to State Secretary was defeated.
- Discussion of the women’s care center initiative.
- And of course, lots of money for Gibault. (Each council brought a check. Total about $89,000+)
- Marty was elected/appointed one of the ten delegates from Indiana to the KofC Supreme Convention in Orlando in August.
We actually won the Gibault raffle twice, once $250 on the raffle itself and the second time on the raffle amount those councils which had sold more than 250 tickets.

A new program called ASAP (AID AND SUPPORT AFTER PREGNANCY) will be starting soon for councils. ASAP describes the Knights of Columbus’ efforts to support pregnant women, mothers and their babies by serving pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes.
Through ASAP, for every $500 our council donates to a qualifying non-profit pregnancy resource center or maternity home, the Supreme Council will issue a $100 grant to the same qualifying organization.
Knights of Columbus believe in the dignity and worth of every human life, and work tirelessly, through prayer and action, to support mothers and their children. In 2021, Knights of Columbus world-wide donated $4.6 million and 469,000 volunteer hours to pregnancy centers and maternity homes, providing maternity and baby clothes, diapers, food and other items to women and children.
Watch for our upcoming fund-raising campaign.
Knights Celebrate Holy Thursday
Knights and their spouses participated in the foot washing liturgy and other Knights carried the canopy during the Blessed Sacrament Relocation procession.
From Indiana Veteran Affairs Chairman Steve Lutz
Pray for Wounded Warriors at the Lourdes, France Pilgrimage: Brother Knights! The 63rd annual “International Military Pilgrimage (PMI)” of Wounded Warriors and their Caregivers occurs this month from 12 - 14 May in Lourdes, France. Once again, the US Knights of Columbus - through your kind Council/ Assembly and Individual donations - will be sponsoring 200+ attendees at the PMI. Knights support covers the travel periods and expenses there and back during the period 9 - 15 May 2023……. At the cost for each Wounded Warrior or Caregiver of $2,600.
MANY THANKS again for the tremendous outpouring and support by our Indiana Knights during this past Fraternal Year to help sponsor several military Pilgrims to this Holy Site.
