Presentation of Chaplain's Stole
Father Michael Parent Presented With Official Chaplain’s Stole
At our February 2020 General Meeting, our Grand Knight Br. Marc Morneau had the pleasure of presenting our Worthy Chaplain Father Mike with an official Knights of Columbus Chaplain Stole.
This presentation was a sign of the recognition, respect, gratitude and the sincere affection our Council has for Father Mike.
Father Mike has been a Knight since 1968, one year after he was ordained. He has been a member and Chaplain of several Councils from each of the parishes he has served during his ministry.
He was instrumental in the formation of our own Council here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in 2003 following the objective that our Supreme Council wants today and that is, an active and engaged Council based in every Parish.
Our growth from 30 Charter members to where we are today has in many ways been in part of the tremendous support, involvement he has provided not only as our Chaplain, but as our Brother Knight.
Beyond his duties as our Chaplain, Father Mike further demonstrates his support as a Knight by accepting the role of Faithful Friar of the Dean Wagner Fourth Degree Assembly of which our Council is affiliated with. The Bishop made this appointment formally in September of 2019.
Father Michael Parent follows in many ways the path set by our founder, Father Michael McGivney, a humble Parish Priest who leads his Knights in helping those in need and confirming our faith in the Catholic Church.
