Novena Before Beatification

Join a Novena Before Beatification

On Oct. 31, Father McGivney is to be named “Blessed” by Pope Francis. That day, the Church will declare what many have long believed — that the holy soul of Father McGivney can intercede for us before the throne of God.

In the past, miracles have occurred for those who pray at the time of a beatification. So, as we count down the days to this amazing event, we invite you to join brother Knights and Catholics across the world in praying a special novena from Thursday, Oct. 22, to Friday, Oct. 30.

The brand new novena features commentary on the life of Father McGivney, as well as unique petitions and daily intentions close to our founder’s heart. We hope that through these prayers and petitions many will be brought closer to God and that we ourselves may renew our love of God and neighbor.

A downloadable version of the novena can be found here. You can also sign up to receive a daily email, which will include the unique petitions and prayers for each of the nine days of the novena. Click here for details.

Fall Savers Fund-raiser

News Comments Off on Fall Savers Fund-raiser

 

Thank You St. John’s

Savers FUNDrive Successful

Friday and Saturday were cool fall days, but the Ladies & Knight volunteers were on hand in the St. John’s School parking lot to accept donations from parishioners.   Due to COVID-19 protocols, it was necessary to first collect and count the bags before we can deliver them to Savers in Hoffman Estates.  Bag donations were fabulous – we have over 700 bags.   Funds raised from this event will go towards the St. John’s School Technology Fund as well as other charitable causes that the Ladies Auxiliary support.

As always, we couldn’t accomplish what we do without our volunteers and the support of the parish.  We are very grateful for the outpouring of support.

The work isn’t done – we need to pack them for delivery to Savers.

Volunteers Needed For Packing / Unpacking Bags

This will take place Friday, October 23rd at 4:30 PM.    If we have enough help, this should only take about an hour. On Saturday, we need to deliver and unpack at Savers.

Second Savers Delivery Added

There will be a second delivery to Savers on Wednesday, October 28th at 1:00 PM – meet at the school parking lot.  See the Sign Up Sheet to volunteer.  We are especially in need of drivers with larger vehicles (vans, trucks, SUVs, etc.)  We are hoping to get a vehicle from Hanover Township, but we don’t know how large it will be.  We have about 300 more bags that need to be delivered to Savers.

Our Namesake Christopher Columbus

Knights Featured | News Comments Off on Our Namesake Christopher Columbus

Today, the Knights of Columbus celebrate Columbus Day, knowing that our namesake gave voice to generations of Catholics and helped clear a path for the diverse society we have today. 

We celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas, which happened on October 12, 1492.  Columbus’ voyages have been celebrated since the colonial days.  Columbus Day first became a state holiday in Colorado in 1906.  It was not until 1937 that Columbus Day became a federal holiday.

When the Knights of Columbus was born on February 6, 1882, the new members selected Christopher Columbus as their patron, recognized as a Catholic and celebrated as the discoverer of America.  Ten years later, on the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the New World, 6,000 Knights of Columbus marched in the New Haven Columbus Day parade.   Just thirty years later, with support from the Knights, the Christopher Columbus Memorial Fountain was dedicated in Washington, D.C. Some 20,000 Knights attended the ceremonies, which were overseen by President William H. Taft.


COURAGE AND CONVICTION: The True Story of Christopher Columbus is a thorough examination of the life and legacy of the fearless discoverer of America. Produced by the Knights of Columbus and narrated by actor Chazz Palminteri, this film provides insight into Christopher Columbus’ remarkable genius as a sea navigator as well as his deep desire to bring all nations to Christ.  If you missed Sunday night’s premiere on EWTN, you can now watch this documentary at KofC.org/Columbus and on the KofC YouTube channel.

 

 

Through expert interviews and archival footage, we look at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. Finally, the film addresses the current indictments against Christopher Columbus with boldness and exposes the motives behind the attacks of revisionist historians.

“Courage and Conviction” shows why Christopher Columbus remains not only a man worthy of admiration, but a noble icon of what it means to be a Catholic and an American.

Novena for Life

That is why Supreme Knight Carl Anderson is asking Knights — and all Catholics — to pray a novena together, asking that hearts may be more open to life in all of its stages. 

Join Catholics around the world in a novena for the cause of life from Oct. 4 to 12. Each day, we’ll invite you to reflect on a unique quote from Pope Francis, pray a decade of the rosary and conclude with a prayer from St. John Paul II. READ MORE
