At the dedication, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said that the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative is the greatest humanitarian effort the organization has ever undertaken.

“Today represents a very concrete way in which millions of lives are changed for the better by the Catholic community coming together and volunteering together,” said Anderson. “What greater legacy can a person have than
to save a child’s life?”

Are Your Catholic Sons Ready for Battle

Knights Newsletter | News Comments Off on Are Your Catholic Sons Ready for Battle

Father Jonathan Meyer, Pastor of All Saints Parish in Guilford, IN, describes the modern day persecution of Christians in America and relates it to the recent attacks on Nick Sandmann, Brett Kavanaugh, and Brian Buescher.   Brother Knights, this is a very powerful homily and well worth investing 20 minutes in it.   Not only were these gentlemen under attack, but so too, were the Knights of Columbus, every Catholic man, woman, and children.

Palm Sunday Breakfast

News Comments Off on 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.
