The Women’s Ministry would like to thank all those who joined us for the May Crowning and Mother’s Day Tea on Sunday May 5th. One our First Holy Communion students, Patricia Harrick, crowned our Blessed Mother during the ceremony. Thank you Patricia and all those who helped make this day special for the women of the parish.
Wherever you see parish activity, chances are there is a knight presence. You see us all the time, although you may not know we are members. We’re Ushers, Extraordinary Ministers, Lectors, CCD Instructors and more. We’re fathers, sons, brothers, uncles and friends strengthening our families, parish and community. Like you we’re busy raising families, coaching teams, working with Scouts. You name it, we’re probably involved wherever there’s a need because we care; Scholarships, Food Drives, Special Olympics, support for seminarians, Unwed Mothers and their babies, and so much more.
We continue to look for ways to grow our support of the parish and our community. We have a very active membership and are always looking for men who will work “shoulder to shoulder” with us so we may continue to grow our many programs, making lives we reach a little better. With 8,760 hours in a year, giving the knights just 24 hours a year (less than .3 percent) discover how you can make a difference by joining us – place your name and number/email on a note labeled “KOFC” in the collection basket so we may call and chat. Or contact Grand Knight Jerry Rynich at 203-727-9205 or Terry Morgan at email@example.com.
