Grand Knight Update

August 9, 2022

Greetings Fellow Knights of KofC Council #11341,

First, let me once again thank those who continue to serve at our weekend masses – the 9:30am Mass is pretty warm, but I imagine the 5pm and 11:30am Masses are even warmer! The upside is that the homilies have been considerably shorter since the AC broke!
Continued thanks also go out to our Council Prayer Warriors –I know that the people and situations on your prayer lists, our God, our Church, and many future humans appreciate your faithfulness!

REMINDER: free online Knights of Columbus membership has been extended for this fraternal year. The promo code for free online membership is BlessedMcGivney (one continuous, non-case sensitive word). Let's all make a concerted effort to recruit 1 new Knight between now and June 2023!

Upcoming Events:

Every Monday Night in the Resurrection Chapel

– Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction, led by our Council’s Knights. Please check in with Tom Shenk if you want to lead a decade of the rosary.

August 10 (Wednesday) from 7pm-8pm

– Council Officers and Directors Meeting, Large Conference Room, Resurrection Pastoral Center (we are not starting at 6:30pm, despite what was annotated in the Sunday bulletin said!)

– MD Chapter of Grand Knights Food Packing Event to feed the hungry in Central America and Maryland. This event will occur in Boswell Hall, 6111 Columbian Way, Bowie MD 20715. This will be an informal service opportunity for our Council's Knights – and what a nice way it provides us for honoring the Feast of Blessed Father Michael McGivney!

What It Means to Be Pro-Life By Supreme Knight Patrick E. Kelly

Hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates will gather in Washington on Friday for the annual March for Life. Every year it is one of the biggest demonstrations in the nation’s capital, but some of the movement’s most dedicated members won’t be there. They’ll be where they usually are, day in and day out—at pregnancy resource centers caring for mothers and children, born and unborn.
