Our Lady, Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to our pledge, to extend the kingship of thy divine son on earth. Through Thine intercession, win for us the grace, ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues that should characterize those especially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. Make us always aware that as your Knights, we are constantly observed, our faith judged, and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of fealty and devotion, of Thy Servants, the Knights of Columbus.
Coats for Kids
GoFundMe Link: https://gf.me/u/y4u9wh
The Knights of Columbus will again be sponsoring a Coats for Kids Drive to help keep the children in our community warm this winter. Last year with the generous help of our parish, we raised $6,000 and supplied 408 jackets to local charities and elementary schools. This year, we would like to increase our goal to $10,000 as many families are experiencing financial hardships will the loss of jobs or a cutback in hours. We are also helping the following parishes by providing their children with coats:
- Holy Angels in Clifton
- Our Lady of Guadalupe in Morgan
- Santa Rosa in Knox City
- Joseph’s in Rhineland
If you would like to help the Knights keep our children warm this winter, you can contribute in multiple ways.
- The Knights will be collecting money after all masses this weekend. Credit cards, checks and cash are all acceptable.
- Place a check in the collection basket at church (please make checks out to Knights of Columbus #9748 and write Coats for Kids in the memo line)
- Place cash in an envelope made out to the Knights and place in the collection basket
- Mail a check to: Knights of Columbus #9748, c/o St. Frances Cabrini, 2301 Acton Hwy, Granbury, TX 76049
- Go to our Go Fund Me page https://gf.me/u/y4u9wh and contribute with your credit card
Any size gift will be welcomed and will benefit the children in our community. 100% of the money collected will go towards purchasing coats. We are a 501c(8) organization and all contributions are tax deductible. (Tax ID# 20-5146078). We plan to place our order for coats by the 1st week of November so please contribute within the next 2 weeks.
Brothers: As you are aware, our council’s steering committee for this initiative presented its recommendations to the Council membership during its March meeting. The membership agreed to proceed in this worthy effort to assist a Brother in need. Included in this initiative are several specific recommended forms of assistance that may feasibly be offered to assist a Brother Knight in time of need. These approved recommendations include, among others:
- Assistance to a brother in need of transportation to Mass or to a council meeting;
- Inclusion of a brother's name in our prayer list on the council web site;
- Offering where needed one of our two wheel chairs which are available to any Brother Knight and/or member of the parish;
- Arranging for the meals on wheels service upon request.
The fundamental precept for this program is that we are a Brotherhood and we are available to assist our Brother Knights in need.
