Sunday February 8th the Knights of Columbus and Ladies Auxiliary members gathered for a Corporate Mass at 11 AM. One of the most important goals of the organization is to help strengthen the Church while providing opportunities for members and their families to grow in their faith. Thank you to those who joined us in prayer that weekend.

 

Knight’s Prayer

 Our Lady, Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to our pledge, to extend the kingship of thy divine son on earth. Through Thine intercession, win for us the grace, ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues that should characterize those especially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. Make us always aware that as your Knights, we are constantly observed, our faith judged, and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of fealty and devotion, of Thy Servants, the Knights of Columbus.

A Busy December

News Comments Off

December is usually a very busy time of year for the Knights and Ladies, and this past month was no exception.   The month started out with our participation in the 30th Annual Light UP Streamwood for the Holidays. It was a cold night December 5th, as we lit the luminarias on Park Blvd., but that didn’t prevent us from completing our mission. Sadly the Knights & Ladies had a major role in the wake and funeral for our beloved Pastor, Father Ted on December 11th and 12th.

Holiday Pancake Breakfast & Bake Sale

Another annual event is our Holiday Pancake Breakfast & Bake Sale which was held on December 14th. We had very good attendance once again this year.   The Ladies baked some of their favorite treats and the Knights served up the usual pancakes, eggs, sausage, and fruit. We continued with our special toppings including warm maple syrup, strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. Santa was on hand to meet with the children and several other vendors sold gift items.

Annual Holiday Party
