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.
We are inviting all interested Knights and their families to the Coats for Kids distribution (through the Coats for Kids Program) our Council is participating in. Our District has amassed well over 150 coats to give away! (Our Council has purchased 96 alone!)
This volunteer opportunity is open to Knights and their families, as well as Catholic men and their families interested in learning more about what we as Knights do!
It will be an enjoyable event for the whole family.
Volunteers should arrive @ 9:00 am. The event should end @ 2:00 pm. Please send Financial Secretary Ray Bilyk an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in attending so that we can alert the District Deputy.
Father Suresh has asked the Knights to paint the signs in front of Church yellow and/or blue. Most are the handicapped signs. Would you be able to donate a few hours Wednesday, July 1st at 7 PM? We still have refreshments from our cookout. We world love to see you smiling face!
THANK YOU to those of you Brother Knights that have already signed up to help with our Dime Toss Booth. We are looking for more people to assist there and with the Craft Beer Booth that we are handling on Sunday ONLY. To sign up, please follow the link below: https://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409084BAAAE29ABFF2-2017
If you still have any glasses/cups/mugs for our WORLD FAMOUS Dime Toss Booth, you can bring them in person this weekend. We can always use more!
This festival is very important for us because this is also our MEMBERSHIP DRIVE WEEKEND! We can use EVERYONE who attends to assist in asking eligible Catholics to join us in our good works… that they can see with their own eyes! I’ll make it interesting… FOR EVERY PROPOSER WHO BRINGS IN A NEW MEMBER (and they join us), I WILL GIVE THEM A $5 GIFT CARD FOR LITTLE CAESARS (or a $5 donation in your name to St. Pius)! (No, I don’t get a discount on the pizzas… I wish!) Ask anyone and everyone to join us in the Knights of Columbus!
Next Wednesday, September 6th at 7PM, we will be holding our monthly meeting in the St Pius Social Hall. Please attend if you can. We have a lot to discuss, so we would really like you to know what’s going on.
Hope to see you at the festival this weekend and/or at our meeting next Wednesday!
