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.
I hope you are all in good health in body, mind and spirit. Attached is our newsletter for March, 2021. Note the emphasis on more participation beginning with the return of the Charity Family Breakfast this Sunday, March 21st. As we pray for a return to life as we knew it, many people need our help. We need your help.
Attached is our February, 2021 edition of our O’Brien Council 3956 Newsletter. We have included a few flyers promoting several upcoming events. Next Sunday will be the St. Pius Free Throw Competition at the Activity Center. Please join us for the kids sake. We will need plenty of help. Special thanks to DD Dominic Raona for adding several state officers to our distribution of the newsletter.
