Knight's Sponsor Welcome Reception for Our New Deacons

On June 9th after the 10:30 mass parishoners welcomed the new QAS Deacons.


Michigan City Wide National Eucharistic, Procession

  • July 4th the day will begin at 9:00 with a Mass.
  • Approximately at 9:45 a procession will take place on the QAS campus. We will be leading the procession with the canopy. 
    • A set up crew and carriers will need to be established. Steven Lyons will be working to get 4-8 Knights to assist with this process. 
      • We may be needed to assist with street safety. It will depend on the route being taken. 
    • At 2:00 another procession will take place at Franciscan hospital. A crew will need to disassemble the canopy and then set it back up at the second procession. Then disassemble it again and return it to the council room afterwards
    • This procession will start at the old Bob Evans restaurant and end at the main entrance of the hospital. 
  • Lunch will begin at 12:00 (approx.)
    • Chef Tom will be working with Gary Marcheschi and his wife to provide lunch. It will be hot dogs (grilled), chips, water, and a cookie. Everything will be prewrapped for pick up to keep the lines moving. 
  • An additional crew will need to be established to assist during the day at the North and South doors to guide people to the church, restrooms, buses, lunch and lunch set up, etc. Lady Becky has been gracious enough to volunteer to establish a crew of Lady Knights to assist with this process.
  • Procession shirts are being designed and will be sold pre-procession. Currently the cost will be $10. Volunteers will wear dark blue shirts. All crews will be wearing these shirts throughout the day including carrying of the canopy. It will be a sign of unity as we process with our Eucharist. 
    • Hats are being researched as well. Depending on cost and quantity I asked about our council sponsoring some of these hats and the Knights logo will be on this hat. 

The number of expected participants will start at 300. Depending on the number of shirts sold this number could be more. More to come with this information. 


Unity After Tragedy

The Knights of Columbus Board of Directors voted during a recent meeting to contribute $100,000 to a relief fund for families who lost loved ones and livelihoods in the collapse of Baltimore’s Key Bridge. “Blessed Michael McGivney founded the Knights over 140 years ago to support widows and orphans. So it was only natural that, upon learning of the death of six road workers — husbands and fathers from the Catholic Hispanic community — we were moved to join with the Church in Baltimore in providing aid to their widows and orphans,” said Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly.

A Gift — and a Task

Unity and charity are the Order’s first principles, and Knights have a special responsibility to work against division in our families, in our society and in the Church, Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly writes in the April issue of Columbia: “Rather than focusing on things we cannot change, let’s take responsibility for the things we can. … Prayer from the heart, far more than criticism, has real power to change things.”
