Held on Saturday, August 18, 2018 rain or shine. Mass followed at 4 PM. All proceeds went to support former state chaplain, Father Joseph Baggetta’s “Chapel of Hope.”
Please join us again next year for raffles, food, fun and fellowship. We hope to see all our brother knights, families and friends. Donations are gratefully accepted.
State Deputy Paul Flanagan accentuated the positive when interviewed by Bishop Reed and Kevin Nelson on CatholicTV following the Opening Mass at the KofC Supreme Convention in Baltimore this morning, August 7.
August 7-9, 2018 marks the 136th Supreme Convention in Baltimore, MD. The CatholicTV network will provide special coverage with Bishop Robert Reed, Kevin Nelson, and Peter Sonski, who will be interviewing special guests and covering live events such as Masses, States Dinner, and more. Also aired throughout the conference will be documentaries produced by the Knights of Columbus.
We are proud to announce that the Supreme Knights of Columbus Board of Directors have chosen a winner of the prestigious Knights of Columbus International Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest from our state. Nicole O’Brien’s essay was chosen from hundreds of entries around the world and, as the Supreme Knights of Columbus noted in the announcement, her essay “truly defines Going into the Peripheries.” Today’s Catholic youth will play a major role in the future direction of the Church, and the Supreme KoC notes that they are on the right track. With a strong base of Catholic beliefs, they will excel in the roles of future priests, sisters, teachers, and legislatures.
Along with Supreme KoC, we congratulate Nicole O’Brien and wish you continued successes on your journey!
