Palm Sunday Breakfast

Join Us for Mass this Palm Sunday

Followed by Breakfast & Fellowship

Every Palm Sunday the Knights of Columbus & Ladies Auxiliary host a Pancake Breakfast and Bake Sale following morning masses.  Start off Holy Week by attending mass with your family and then sitting down to a meal together as a family.

Join the Knights and Ladies in the Parish Center from 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM Palm Sunday for some of the best pancakes, sausages, eggs, biscuits & gravy, waffles, french toast, and baked goods in Streamwood.

Our costs have risen over the years and we’ve resisted increasing our prices until now.  We’ve expanded our menu at the same time – items in bold have recently been added due to popular demand from our patrons.

Our place-mat advertising program also has helped us to defray some of the rising costs.  Please patronize our advertisers and tell them that you saw their ad at the Knights of Columbus function.

40 Bags 40 Days

Knights Newsletter | News Comments Off on 40 Bags 40 Days

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 April 12th and 13th.

Holiday Social Recap

News Comments Off on Holiday Social Recap

The Knights and Ladies Auxiliary held their annual joint Christmas Social on December 19th.  Since charity is one of the four pillars of the Knights of Columbus, the Knights and Ladies collected pajamas and various home goods for the Women’s Crisis Center and Veterans who are in need of support.   The Ladies provided refreshments for the evening.

Following the dinner portion of the evening, there were several presentations made.  Bob Fallon, District Deputy, was on hand to present a very prestigious award to Bill Henderson.   He was selected as Knight of the Month (October, 2018) by the Illinois State Council Knights of Columbus.   To put this in perspective, there are over 73,000 Knights in the state of Illinois.

 

Bill was recognized for his many contributions to the Knights and the church, including Race Director for our 5k Knights Challenge, usher, minister of communion, and many other contributions.   Congratulations Bill on this well-deserved recognition from the state.  Speaking of the 5k, Deputy Grand Knight Gary Pappin presented the council with a plaque received from Hanover Township, for our continued support of Hanover Township Food Pantry via the 5k and other activities throughout the year.

 

Also on hand was our Field Agent, Larry Szmurlo, who retired at the end of 2018.   He faithfully served our council for more than ten years.   We presented him with a crucifix in appreciation for his service to our council.  Another very special presentation was to one of our own Knights, Tommy Davidson.  Tommy is currently in the seminary beginning his studies to become a priest.  The council supports a seminarian each year and we were especially honored to be presenting a monetary gift to Tommy to defray his costs.   We will keep him and his father, Tim (who is studying to become a deacon), in our prayers as they begin this faith journey.

 

Finally, Grand Knight Frank Esposito and President Joni Lorkowski presented Christmas gifts to Fathers Nate and Gregg as well as the custodial staff of St. Johns.   We are very grateful for the support the Knights and Ladies get from the parish.
