Thank You St. John’s Parish

News | Uncategorized Comments Off on Thank You St. John’s Parish

One of the founding principles of the Knights of Columbus is Charity.   This principle drives much of our program activities throughout the year.  Our charitable activities depend on the generosity of others and once again, St. John’s Parishioners have made our programs successful.

Disaster Relief

We are gratified by the outpouring of support last weekend for the Tornado victims of suburban Chicago.  Woodridge and the surrounding area are only 30 minutes away from us, so we could easily have been the ones needing help.  Homes were damaged, lives were changed forever, but your contributions bring hope and a new birth to the lives impacted.   We were especially pleased to see parents giving their children the money to put in our jars.  They are learning charity at an early age.

Thank you St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Streamwood, IL for supporting Mary’s Millennium Council #12801 fund-raising efforts for Tornado Victims.

Gary Pappin, PGK delivered $2500 in gift cards to Jerry Bevignani, General Assistance Fund Chairman Illinois State Council Knights of Columbus for distribution to those needing some assistance in the wake of the tornado that tore through Woodridge and surrounding area.  The gift cards will be distributed Saturday July 18th at St. Scholastica Church in Woodridge.

Veterans

In May, we collected donations for the Homeless Veterans.  We would like to share the thank you note from the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans.  While it is directed to the Knights, again, you made it possible.   Thank you for all you do for others by supporting our programs.

Thank you to everyone at the Knights of Columbus for your Incredible donation earlier this month!  The items you provided were immediately put to use with our outreach program to connect with more veterans in need.  You guys have been amazing to MSHV over the years, and we are very blessed to call you our friends.  Take care and stay safe.

Josh T., MSHV

Hanover Township Food Pantry

Supporting the township food pantry is one of our primary missions each year.  Currently there are several activities underway that you can be a part of.  The parish is collecting for the Freedom from Hunger drive and donations are coming in.

We will be raffling two tickets to the Bears vs Green Bay Packers game at the Parish Picnic.  Raffle tickets can be purchased by asking a Knight or purchasing at the picnic.  They can also be purchased online at https://kofc12801.square.site/raffle.

Registration is open for our 8th Annual Knights Challenge 5k Run / Walk / Kids Dash.  Visit our website 5k.kofc12801.org/register for more information.  We need participants and sponsors.  Proceeds from these events help to keep food on the shelves of the food pantry.

May God Bless you and your families for your charity.

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.

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 their 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.   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.  This weekend Brother Knights of Mary’s Millennium Council will be in the narthax answering any questions you might have about our council and the order.
