Hanover Township Gift Distribution

Over 2000 years ago, the three wise men brought gifts to baby Jesus.   In similar fashion, more than 700 families received gifts this year as part of the Hanover Township Toy Drive and Sponsor-a-Family programs. These gifts were distributed to our community on Saturday December 19th, just in time for Christmas.

St. John the Evangelist and Mary’s Millennium Council #12801 Knights of Columbus were a huge part of this annual endeavor once again providing 1900 gifts. Eileen Mary and Kevin King started our drive by getting proper tags for our Christmas trees while Dave Stimek and his crew helped get the gifts passed on to Hanover Township.

It all started in November as once again the council suggested we continued the traditional giving trees and our parishioners responded generously resulting in over 1900 gifts, the largest response to date. The fun part was playing Santa which was done by Knights Of Columbus Sir Knights, Stanley Kaleta, Jerry Huinker, Jerry Dzurovsak, Richard Zych, Ladies Auxiliary Carol Zaehler and Kelley Zych.

Brother Knight, and Hanover Township Supervisor, Brian McGuire and Hanover Township Welfare Services Director, Mary Jo Imperto, thanked all those that shared their Christmas spirit and love with children they never met.   The entire community should be proud of their efforts and know that the recipients are feeling the Love that God has for all of us.

15th Anniversary Mary’s Millennium Council

DSC_0433

On October 2, 1881, a small group of men met in the basement of St. Mary’s Church on Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut. Called together by their parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, these men formed a fraternal society that would one day become the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization.

Fifteen years ago this weekend, on December 12, 2000, a small group of St. John the Evangelist Parish men were called together by their priests,   Rev. Robert F. Tonelli and Rev. Fred C. Pesek , to form Mary’s Millennium Council #12801. They were officially recognized by the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus as evidenced in the attached certificate.

Both groups of men sought strength in solidarity, and security through unity of purpose and devotion to a holy cause: they vowed to be defenders of their country and theirknights_15_anniv_logo families and their Faith.   Today we honor those founding Brothers, many of whom remain active members, and all who have followed in their footsteps.   Together they have performed countless hours of service to God, the Church, and the community at large. Congratulations Brother Knights of Mary’s Millennium Council #12801 on achieving the anniversary of 15 Years – Faith in Action.   We call upon all the men of the parish, who aren’t currently members, to prayerfully consider following in their footsteps to keep this tradition alive in our parish. Join us at our annual Holiday Pancake Breakfast this Sunday morning.

Past Grand Knight, Loren Becht

Our annual Past Grand Knight dinner was held at Villa Olivia Country Club in Bartlett, IL on Friday, October 23rd.  During the dinner, our current Grand Knight, Bill Henderson and Deputy Grand Knight, Frank Esposito, presented Loren Becht with the traditional parting gifts (gavel and lapel pin) for the Past Grand Knight.   Loren’s two year term officially ended in June when the new officers were inducted.

Loren’s final duties were to nominate the Knights of the Year and Family of the Year recipients and present those awards at the dinner. Lady of the Year for the Ladies Auxiliary was also presented.

See the following articles for more information:

 

 

Thank you Loren for your contributions to Mary’s Millennium Council #12801.   Under your leadership, as well as the other officers, we have concluded another fiscal year filled with many achievements.  God Bless you for your service and dedication to the Knights of Columbus.

Loren’s Concluding Remarks

Brother Knights what makes this a great organization is it great leaders like our founder Father Michael J. McGivney, Our supreme President Carl Anderson. Did you know he was the former Special Assistant to President Ronald Regan. Another great Knight was the 35th president of the United States John F. Kennedy. What do you think motivated these great men to be Knights? What do you think makes the Knights so successful? Is it the spiritual guidance that we get from dedicated Priest such as our Chaplin Father Greg? Yes. Also at the beginning and end of every meeting WE PRAY and asking God to be with us when making our decisions. As long as we continue to do what we do God will never lead us astray.

You hear every day on the news what’s going on in this world today. People are asking why is this happening – the shootings, the bombings, the hatred? Why doesn’t someone do something about it? Why don’t we make more laws? Why don’t we take away the guns? I guess the question I have to ask is why did we allow God to be taken out of our school, and our government? To me this is reason enough to grow our council and pray the ROSARY asking for the Blessed Mother to intercede to her Son Our Lord Jesus Christ on our behalf. Thank you and God Bless.
