Council #5750 has earned the Columbian Award for the 2020-2021 Fraternal Year.  This award is given annually to councils that demonstrate excellence in the council’s programming achievements and charitable outreach.  To earn this award the council #5750 conducted a minimum of four programs in each of the four program categories: Faith, Family, Community, and Life. 


Family of the Year

2020-2021

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

2020-2021

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.

Congratulations to the

Family of the Month

March 2021

     The Zalaya Family

 

 

Council 5750 takes pleasure in designating the Zalaya family as the "Family of the Month" for February 2021.  The example you have set by living out, as a family, your Catholic faith and through your participation in and support for your parish and school activities in 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 the coming top intimately love other persons and learn to live out the Catholic faith in families, parishes and community.  This has a ripple effect and can change the world.

 

Thank you for all you do for Our Lady of Angels Parish, for St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School, and the community, but most of all thank you for giving us a strong example of what it means to be a Catholic family. 


 

A Helping Hand

An elderly Parishioner need help with maintenance and repairs to the family home.  Several members of the Council dedicated their time and efforts to get that accomplished.  

 

A big "Thank You!" goes out to all those who were able to help.


 

Nominations for

Family of the Month

 

The Council is seeking nominations for Family of the Month (FOM).   I would certainly guess there is no shortage of deserving families. You may nominate families not associated with the Knights of Columbus as long as they display devotion to one or more of the following:  promoting Christian family values, supporting community or school activities, participation as a family in the sacramental life of their parish.  Please pass your nomination to Grand Knight Chuck Wheeler.  Nominations can also be done via this website in the "Members Only" section, please click here:  Nominations
