Brother Knights, Just a reminder that we have our November Pancake Breakfast coming up on November 28th. Please consider signing up to help even if it were just for a couple hours. If you haven’t been to a breakfast in awhile, just come by, have some pancakes and check it out.
Mark your calendar for December 11th as well as that will be our Keep Christ in Christmas dinner. We would love to see as many Knights and their families attend as possible. More information to come. Vivat Jesus, John Pickard
The Knights of Columbus would like to welcome our newest brother to the council. Brother Jerry Mullins III participated in the Exemplification Ceremony at Holy Name Church on June 19th and is now officially a 3rd Degree Knight. Jerry has truly embraced his Catholic Faith and we look forward to his future contributions to the council.
We will be signing up prayer warriors on the weekend of March 13-14 after all of the masses. The sign ups will be for one hour shifts across from planned parenthood. Our prayer dates are March 20 and 25 from around 6am to 6pm. Our prayers have taken on added urgency with the new “stimulus” measure which funnels millions of dollars to planned parenthood in the guise of health care services. So I’d urge all of my Brother Knights, their wives and their grown up kids to sign up for a one hour prayer shift on one of those days. Thank you in advance for your consideration and have a blessed day Don Frevert, Life Director
On February 20th Brother Knights Norbert Boeckman, Patrick Stewart (and John Pickard not pictured) picked up trash along W 15th Pl between Kipling and Miller streets. Council 9597 has adopted this stretch of road to keep clean for the City and our community. “Faith in action is service. Service in action is love” -Mother Teresa Vivat Jesus, JPickard GK
On February 13th Brother Knights Joseph Lagae, Brent Schuller (and John Pickard not pictured) helped out at the Samaritan House in downtown Denver with cleaning the newly renovated dormitory for homeless women. The renovation included new bunk beds and lockers, and their construction left a bit of a mess. The Knights helped put the finishing touches on cleaning the area so it will be ready to go in the near future. “Faith in action is service.
