2016 Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge

Good Shepherd Knights of Columbus Council #6358 in Schertz, TX hosted the KofC Soccer Challenge on 24 September for kids aged 9-14. The council had a total of 20 participants, many of which had impressive soccer skills! Ten Brother Knights volunteered a total of 40hrs to make this event a success. The council Youth Director & Deputy Grand Knight, Martin McCloud, organized the event.


Winners of this year's soccer challenge were: 9 year-old-girls, Aundrea Allen; 9-year-old boys, Brodie Berger; 10-year-old girls, Kayla Warren; 10-year-old boys, Connor Hawkins; 11-year-old girls, Jelena Wells; 11-year-old boys, Zachary Thigpen; 13-year-old boys, Jacob Sanchez; 14-year-old boys, Shawn Tillman-coriano.

 

The best part about the few hours we spent out on the soccer field was the intangibles. One young boy came to the event very shy and didn’t want to talk or interact much with his peers or Brother Knights on the field. Two older boys at the competition started talking to him and began instructing him on the penalty kick. The young boy started kicking and you could tell his confidence was growing. Then a father came over and began instructing the young boy and continued to give him constructive criticism and complements on his skills. By the end of this impromptu coaching session the young boy was glowing and walked away with confidence in his abilities as a soccer player. This one moment made the whole event worth holding for the local community and makes you proud to be a Knight!

 

The competition was co-sponsored by The Soccer Factory and the San Antonio Football Club.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose – One Life, One Rose.

Over 50 years ago, Squires in Mexico initiated a running of the rose as an activity to show respect and to edify Our Lady of Guadalupe. This year, Supreme started four Roses traveling across the United States and Canada toward Texas and eventually ending in Monterrey, Mexico. The Roses arrived in Texas on November 4th, coming in from Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Each of the dioceses of Beaumont, Tyler, Ft. Worth, and Amarillo had a contingent at the state line to receive the Roses. They then traveled the State for one month ending up at the Mid-year meeting in Houston. From there one of the Roses traveled to Laredo where on December 10th, it was transferred to our Brother Knights in Mexico.

 

Our Coucil had its Silver Rose presentation November 22 in the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Adoration Chapel.  Thank you to everyone who attended.
