LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 60 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
For OLA, our chain will take place on Sunday, October 3 from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm on Smoketown Rd. in front of Christ Chapel, where parking will be available.
Photographs from the September Knight's Breakfast for the Parish are available in the Photo Gallery. This was the most successful breakfast in the memory of the current Knights. A heartfelt Thank You! to all the the Volunteers who made this event happen and to the Parishioners who joined us. They Photo's can also be accessed directly from the following link: Sep Breakfast

Family of the Year
The Foos Family
Knights of Columbus Council 5750 takes pleasure in designating you as its “Family of the Year” for 2021. The example you set by living out, as a family, your Catholic faith and through your participation in and support for your parish is an inspiring demonstration of the Domestic Church in action. The Domestic Church — the family — plays a key role in sanctification because it is the primary place where we practice coming to intimately love other persons and learn to live out the Catholic faith in families, parishes and community. This has a ripple effect that can change the world.
Thank you for all you do for Our Lady of Angels Parish through serving as altar servers at Masses and being active in the Altar Society, supporting Knights of Columbus Council 5750 events, volunteering as a parish stakeholder in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington’s annual WorkCamp event, and for providing leadership in the parish’s affiliated Boy Scouts of America troop. Most of all, thank you for giving us a strong example of what it means to be a Catholic family.
Knight of the Year
Mr. Michael O’Bar
Knights of Columbus Council 5750 takes great pleasure in designating you as our “Knight of the Year” for Fraternal Year 2020 - 2021. Your stellar efforts on behalf of this council have certainly not been confined to this year though. You have kept the council finances in order during tight financial times for the council for several years! Additionally, you:
- have prepared the council taxes for the past three years instead of using a tax preparer.
- worked as a pull tab seller at bingo until the council suspended bingo operations.
- took over as Chairman of the Club Corp. when no one else would take the position.
- took over as building manager of the Club Corp., coordinating hall rentals and hall maintenance.
- worked tirelessly with our realtor to find a buyer for our aging council home. This included two deals that fell through before finally finding a buyer.
- closed a deal on the sale of the council home after many months of negotiations.
- continuously updated the council on the progression of the sale of the building.
- once the building was sold, prepared a plan with an oversight committee established by the Past Grand Knight to invest the money for the council which will hopefully provide financial sustainability for the council in perpetuity.
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the Knights of Columbus and Our Lady of Angels Parish. Your authentic example of a Catholic gentleman is truly inspirational to all the members of Council 5750 and undoubtedly to many more men and women outside our council.
