Youth Program Update

News Comments Off on Youth Program Update

Knights 'n Kids ContestsMary’s Millennium Council is involved in several programs throughout the year, but perhaps the most rewarding is our Youth Programs under the direction of Sir Knight Richard Zych, Youth Director.  Here are some of the 2016 highlights.

SPELLING BEE

BERNADETTE, of St. John’s School,was a Council and Regional winner who came in 18th (48 competitors) at the State Championship. Nice finish .

FREE THROW CONTEST

JACK (10 year old), of St John’s School, was a Council and Regional winner, in his age bracket, and came in 4th place at the State Championship. He made 21 of 25 shots. “Nuttin but net .”

SUBSTANCE ABUSE POSTERS

All four of our Artists and Poet Council winners had their “Masterpieces ” submitted to the State judging board . I was told by the board three of our presentations were now being reviewed by the final group and winners will be announced by the end of May. MARK, SOPHIA, RACHELLE, AND MADISON are all possible winners .

SPECIAL OLYMPICS “BRAVE HAS NO LIMITS”

This was our first experience with the ILLINOIS KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SPONSORED event.  Our Council was represented by six Fourth Degree Knights who were involved in the Honor Guard group and two Knights that volunteered to help with the games. The real highlight was ASHTON (a young boy from our Parish) competed in the Softball Throwing Contest. He didn’t just Compete but won the GOLD MEDAL and is invited to the State Tournament.  Our Community is cheering for Ashton.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS CATHOLIC CITIZENSHIP ESSAY CONTEST

It was held earlier in the year and three finalist Essays were added to the State judging group. Many were submitted from Illinois Councils statewide.  Our Council Winners will be announced at our School’s Eight Grade Dinner and Dance some time in May.

Thanks to all that participated and volunteered as Walt Disney once said “OUR GREATEST NATURAL RESOURCE IS THE MINDS OF OUR CHILDREN “

March 29, 1892

New Haven, Connecticut

Father McGivneyIn March, 1892, as the Connecticut winter grew to a close, a small group of men, led by Father Michael McGivney, sought to found a new Catholic Fraternal Organization to protect their fellow men and their families.

Since Catholics weren’t well liked, not many people paid much attention to the new society which had just been chartered by the state. Who would have thought that this organization would grow to what it is today.

It was baffling to think that a group of destitute Irish immigrants, fighting against unemployment, discrimination and diseases in New Haven, Connecticut, would cause a spark that would light up the world with more than 1.9 million members in more than a dozen countries.

kofc_insturance_transAnd what, exactly, did they found? Father McGivney, we know, did not just found a charitable society, but a society of mutual aid through which members would insure their own well-being, and that of their families, with the help of their brother Knights.

Today a group of  men dedicated to serving the needs of their Catholic community have donated nearly $1.5 billion dollars to charitable causes and spent 673 million hours volunteering in just the last decade. These men are carrying on Father McGivney’s dream. We need more men to help us in our mission. Would you like to join us in our mission? We would welcome the opportunity to discuss our organization with you.

Before deciding that a new group was in order, Father McGivney researched the finer points of other fraternal benefit organizations’ insurance programs, ultimately concluding that their coverage was insufficient. How proud must he be to know that the Knights of Columbus continues to provide insurance by brother Knights, for brother Knights, protecting Catholic families for generations?

We hope that you’ll join us for some fellowship either before or after mass.   Funds raised from this event help us with our charitable works throughout the year.   Thank YOU for supporting us.

Tables are setup in Kyle Hall with place-mats that feature business card size ads for several local businesses.   Thanks to these advertisers, we are able to partially defray our costs throughout the year making funds raised by our events go towards our intended recipients.   Together we are able to help our parish and community.

Holy Thursday Visiting Churches

Knights Newsletter | News Comments Off on Holy Thursday Visiting Churches

Vatican Mural - Last Supper

The tradition of visiting seven churches on Holy Thursday is an ancient practice, probably originating in Rome. The tapestry image above was captured during a visit to Rome and it depicts the Last Supper which is the focal point of Holy Thursday.

The tradition is still carried on today in many parts of the world. In the Philippines the tradition is called Visita Iglesia (Spanish, “church visit”), where people visit one, seven, or fourteen churches to pray, usually reciting the Stations of the Cross. Today, the Stations are commonly divided amongst the churches, but until the 1970s the practice was to recite all fourteen in each church.

Locally, churches stay open late on Holy Thursday to allow this tradition to continue. Brother Knight, Deacon Jim Furey has compiled a list of churches which could be visited. Click here for more information about the tradition as well as a printable list of churches.
