Recent Activities:

  • Recruitment Night and Dinner At The Rectory: Held Monday, November 7th, the evening was a wonderful success! With over 30 people in attendance, we had seven prospects and one new member show up. Many thanks to everyone involved in pulling this off, but especially Deputy Grand Knight Frank Short for his above and beyond effort to get the food donated by Harry and Izzy’s and other arrangements.
  • Knights Mass: Sunday, November 20th at the 9:30am Mass. This was one of the strongest showings of Knights in attendance in a while.  By my count, we had at least 12 Knights wear sashes and several more at the mass. We were recognized during mass by both our Council Chaplain Fr. Bandari as well as by Msgr. Schaedel. Knights in Action!


Council Operations:

  • Our November Knights Family of the Month is Bill and Barb Hendrickson. Many thanks to Bill and Barb for their dedication to our Council and to our parish. KNIGHTS IN ACTION!  Thank you Bill and Barb!
  • As you complete your Parish Stewardship cards, please consider becoming a Minister of Hospitality. We need more people on the schedule for this important parish ministry!
  • The campaign to raise funds to have the new meeting space named after Blessed Father McGivney has begun. A mailing will be going out soon asking for your support. Please consider donating to this cause which will finally give a permanent home to our Council and raise awareness of Blessed Father McGivney and the works of our Knights of Columbus Council.
  • SAFE PARISH – The Archdiocese of Indianapolis has implemented a new youth safety program called SAFE PARISH. It replaces SAFE & SACRED. All individuals that work with youth are required to complete the SAFE PARISH certification…even if they completed SAFE & SACRED and/or the Knights of Columbus’ SAFE ENVIRONMENT certification.
