Lent 2020 – 40 Days 40 Bags

News Comments Off on Lent 2020 – 40 Days 40 Bags

As you start your spring cleaning, remember that the Ladies Auxiliary are going to be collecting items and taking them to Savers for a fundraiser. This was a very successful fund raiser for us last fall. This could be done in coordination with a Lenten Penance.


40 Bags in 40 Days: The idea to combine this fund raiser with Lent came from Simply Catholic. They wrote that Father Kyle Schnipple first suggested it as a Lenten Penance and since then, hundreds of groups and blogs have picked up the idea.

How the Challenge Works: The original concept is easy. Pick a size of bag, fill it up with stuff and get rid of it. What size bag should I pick? That depends on you – if you have a big house and/or a big family, and lots of stuff then go big. For smaller families with less stuff, then a small bag might be a challenge. If you don’t know what size to pick, perhaps a standard tall kitchen bag is the place to start. If you struggle to fill the bag you’ve chosen, one of two things is happening – you are using too big a bag or you should prayerfully consider letting more things go. There is something to be said for steady discipline of letting a bit go each day, but whatever works for you is fine. It usually takes about 30 minutes to fill a bag.

Can I gather bags ahead of Lent and count them? Sure. The goal is to let a little go each day, but if you know you are going to be missing a few days and really want to do all 40 bags… go ahead. There really isn’t a right or wrong way. Do bags of trash/junk/paper count? Yes. You have this stuff in your house and it is stealing your space, your time and your sanity. Of course it counts to let it go. We will be collecting your items on May 1st and 2nd.

We’d like to recognize the individuals that made this year’s tournament possible. Mr. Ryan Binder, Athletic Director at St. John’s School, shared his gym time so that we could hold this event. His coaches helped us to keep the things moving. Brother Knights Gary Pappin, Adam Kanyuh, Alex Diaz, Phil Roth, Mark Arient, Bob Zagogdon, and Tom Witt were on hand to facilitate. Special thank you to the members of the Ladies Auxiliary Doraly Witt and Karen Diaz for helping check in participants.

New Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity

Knights of Columbus introduces new Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity

To attract more, younger, faith-filled Catholic men at a time when the Church needs them the most, the Knights of Columbus is changing with the times.  The Supreme Council has introduced a new degree which will allow candidates to reach full Knighthood in a single ceremony.  The new degree, currently called the Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity was introduced by Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson.

The announcement also eliminates the need for secrecy.  In fact, the new degree includes plans for inviting family and friends to the degree.  The Current Issue Of Knightline takes a closer look at the new ceremony.  We encourage all members to read these articles to learn more about the changes and why they were made at this time.

Mary’s Millennium Council would like to congratulate our latest 3rd Degree Knight, Charles (Chuck) Kuhn.    He becomes the first Knight of our council to reach full Knighthood using this new ceremony.   The 4th Degree, Patriotic degree, remains a separate ceremony.  It is an optional degree for those that wish to become part of an Assembly.   Both third- and fourth-degree Knights can hold officer positions in the council.   Please join me in congratulating Chuck on this accomplishment.

Robert Reading Memorial

News Comments Off on Robert Reading Memorial

At the 9 AM  last Sunday, the Knights and Ladies gathered in prayer for their quarterly Corporate Mass.  Following the mass, we honored our fallen Brother Knight Robert Reading, as we dedicated his stone in our Memorial Garden.

Father Nate blessed the new stone which was added to our Memorial Garden by Robert’s brother. Wally Niemczyk, who is the creator and caretaker of this gorgeous setting for prayer and reflection, had cleared the snow and loosened the ground so that this ceremony could be held.  We encourage all members to visit the garden, and to keep these members and their families in your daily prayers.  We invite parishioners to visit our garden for their personal prayers.
