Here is Bulletin_2017-06-11

A Word about the Knights: Our bulletin this week reflects a simple fact – Knights of Columbus Council #14755 strengthens “the parish community as a whole”. (See page 2, Feeding the Hungry; page 3, Corpus Christi Procession & Parish Picnic, page 4, Help the Knights Support KOVAR and Special Olympics.) Consider the words of Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. (See Supreme Knight tells state leaders membership key to growth and stability of the Knights of Columbus; our emphasis added.)

“Our Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish initiative combines two great traditions of the Knights of Columbus: building up Catholic family life and strengthening parish life,” Supreme Knight Anderson said. Parishes are the natural home of Knights of Columbus councils and where they thrive best while strengthening the parish community as a whole, he added. These parish-based councils can be the drivers within the parish that promotes Catholic family life and new charitable initiatives, and that calls Catholic men to greater spiritual formation and evangelical action.

A note to the Knights among the Sheep in Exile: You are our Brother Knights. Your fraternity and prayers have strengthened us. Stay in contact and join us when you can.

Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney – Pray for us!


mcgivney-small.jpgThe McGivney Prayer: God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan, you called your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. Through the example of his life and virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify your venerable servant Father Michael J. McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request). Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
