Join Us for Good Friday Services at St. Pius X Parish!

As we get closer to Easter, the Knights of Columbus are encouraging families in the parish community to attend the Good Friday Services at St. Pius X Catholic Parish on Friday, April 2nd, 2021 starting at 12 Noon.

Despite Good Friday’s central nature in the heart of Christianity, attendance at services remains low. Putting their faith into action, the Bernard P. O’Brien Council 3956 Knights of Columbus in Southgate will encourage participation through a promotional campaign that educates their parishes on the vital importance of Good Friday. The liturgy of the Lord’s passion and death reminds families of the suffering Jesus endured through his passion and resurrection, thereby opening the gates of heaven for each of us.

Setting an example for their community, starting at 12 Noon, our Council will be attending Stations of the Cross, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, Meditation of Jesus’ Last Words and Celebration of the Passion of the Lord. All of this will conclude at 3:15PM.

Please join us in this somber but important event. If you have any questions, please call the St. Pius Parish Office at 734-285-1100.

2021 Dues Notices are in St. Pius X Church Ushers Room

Brother Knights:

As stated in last Wednesday’s Business Meeting, I placed the Dues Notices (for Regular and Honorary members) and membership cards (for Honorary Life members) in alphabetical order in the Ushers Room at St. Pius X Church.

Please stop by and pick up yours (and any Brother Knights you might live near) so the Council can save on postage.

On December 15th, the remaining envelopes will be placed in the mail.

Reminder that we are also collecting funds for the State Council’s Take 10 for Charity Program (suggested amount $10) and the Sacred Heart Major Seminary Endowed Scholarship Fund (suggested amount $6). These are voluntary requests.

Besides mailing in your dues/donations, you can also make your payment by credit card (for a $2.00 convenience fee) by heading to https://www.kofc3956.org/pay-dues/ 

If you have any questions, please free to contact me at raybilyk@kofc3956.org .

Have a Merry CHRISTmas!
