2016_special_olympicsDid you know that the Knights of Columbus have been an Official Partner of the Special Olympics Illinois since 2005, and have been one of the biggest supporters ever since? They are dedicated to the athletes, families, and mission of Special Olympics locally and nationally. They give their time, their money and their dedication to the movement. Council 12801 was proud to be a part of the Opening Ceremony with the Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Honor Guard presentation of the colors at the Spring Games for the second year. The Illinois Knights of Columbus Gold Medal Special Olympics was held on April 23rd at Prospect High School in Mt. Prospect.

There were over 700 Special Athletes and 450 volunteers helping all day. Among the volunteers were five of our Council Knights – three were proud to assist with the Opening Ceremonies, and two others helped with games and the award presentations. Also in attendance were Knights from several Councils in our area, Parents, Grandparents, Officers of the area Police Department and very special High School Students.

One of our Parishioners , 13yr old Ashton, repeated his effort of last year by being presented with a Second place Silver Medal earned in the Soft Ball Throwing event. Congratulations to Ashton and all those who participated. These Special Athletes experienced the joy of competition, as they shared their skills and friendship with other Athletes and the Community. THIS WAS THEIR DAY THAT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. THEY ARE ALL SPECIAL ATHLETES.


The story doesn’t end there. The second part of the Special Olympics was an indoor event on May 7th, also held at Prospect High School.

Our council was represented by Sir Knight David Arias, who has been involved at these special events since he was 15 years old. His specialty is “Power Lifting”, one of the more exciting events. Not only does he compete, but he has won 42 medals, mostly Gold. This year David won 2 Gold and 1 Silver medal in the Regionals and was invited to lift for the State Championship at the State Special Olympics which will be held next month. David is now known as “The Olympian”.

Fellow Brother Knights, the community, and parish are in your corner David. We wish you much more success in the Special Olympics, and are proud of all your accomplishments on an off the mat.

2017 Fish Fry Dinners

Lenten Suppers – Fifth Year

For the 5th year, the decision of what to serve for Friday meals during Lent was an easy one. Parishioners, families, and friends came to St. John the Evangelist Church in Streamwood for their Lenten Suppers. The suppers were served in the Parish Center every Friday from March 3rd – April 7th (No Lenten Supper was held on Good Friday – April 14th).

 

This was a parish event with volunteers from parish including the Knights of Columbus who cooked, the Ladies Auxiliary who served, and the Boy Scouts who helped setup and cleanup. Besides the chance for a good meal, it was also an opportunity for socializing and most importantly praying the Stations of the Cross after the supper. Here are a few images from the suppers.  Thank you to all that volunteered and to all that supported the event with your attendance.

First Communion 2017

May is the month that we honor Mary. The Ladies and Knights of Mary’s Millennium Council #12801 have a very close relationship with her and pray the rosary throughout the year. Mary has 100 different titles, but none are more endearing to us than Mary, Queen of the Knights.

Since the council was formed here at St. John the Evangelist Church, April and May has been a special time for the Knights. It is the time of First Holy Communion in our parish, and we have had the privilege of taking an active role in this special time for the children. This year was no different as nearly 150 boys and girls prepared for their special day. Due to the size of the class, First Communion was held April 22nd  and April 29th.

1st_communionSeveral of the Knights were on hand at the rehearsal to present each of the children with their very first rosary, which carries the Knights’ emblem and were blessed by our Supreme Chaplain. The highlight of the evening was when the parents and children followed by the traditional first prayer on their new rosaries.
It took many folks to prepare our children for this special day including the Parents, Deacon Larry and Mary Rybicki, Director of Religious Education, Catechists, Teachers and our Parish Staff. Knights presenting the Rosaries were Rich Zych, Phil Roth, Stanley Kaleta and Frank Esposito. Congratulations to all the children who received the Lord for the first time. We look forward to sharing in this banquet with you for years to come and for your continued prayers using your new rosary.
