Brother Knights and Friends,

Click below for our council’s newsletter for June 2022. Please take the time to read messages from our Grand Knight Bill Robert to step forward and give of yourself to earn that inner peace by doing God’s work. Deacon Chuck shares his story of Stone Soup and how it illustrates a little contribution from many make it easier on everybody. Each of our officers’ messages gives a perspective unique to them. All are worthy of you time to read and react.

Fathers, we are the caretakers, the role models, the counselors, the consolers, the protectors, and the teachers to our children. With all that experience, we are naturally the best people to share our skills with our community as a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Happy Father’s Day!

K of C Council 3956 March 2022 Newsletter

To my friends of the Knights of Columbus,
“I Got This!”
That was the message I received as I prayed to God for healing and guidance.
Since our last newsletter, actually in the last few days, we have experienced the ultimate highs and lows in life. On March 17th, we were blessed with a healthy newborn grandson. The next day we were faced with the challenge of our own life. God has our back and through his love and mercy, we must trust in him that brighter days are ahead. Please pray for us and for each other.
God Bless,
Anthony (Tony) Chirco

Novena for the Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Today the Knights of Columbus calls on its over two million members and their families worldwide to join in nine days of prayer beginning March 17, 2022. Initiated by Catholics in Ukraine, the novena leads up to the Feast of the Annunciation, on March 25th, when Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Saint Peter’s Square in Rome. This date is historically significant, as on the same day in 1984, Saint John Paul II consecrated Russia and the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
“During this time of immense suffering in Ukraine, I call on our more than two million Knights to devote themselves in prayer to our Blessed Virgin Mary,” said Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly. “Together, we’ll ask Our Lady to intercede on behalf of those directly impacted by the conflict, to give strength to our Ukrainian and Polish Knights working so hard to deliver relief, and to help bring peace to the region.”
