2022 - 2023


The late Mart Bisek of Madison was not present to receive the award for Family of the Year with his wife Ginger at the Annual Knights of Columbus State Convention in Robinsonvile on April 23. Mart lost his battle to cancer before the Convention but he left behind a dedicated spouse, two grown children and grandchildren, and a legacy of service and dedication to Faith, Family, Life & Community that will live on forever. As this year’s recipients of the State KC Family of the Year, Mart and Ginger served the Lord in four local Parishes over the years and led ministries that provided for many of God’s People. Mart served in many leadership roles in the Knights through the years while Ginger served as Officer and Charter Member of the KC Ladies Auxiliary and Chaired the Giving Tree Ministry for many years. Together, they helped many including our Sacramental Minister in his recovery from surgery. Mart also served as CEO of Gleaners for 12 years and ginger volunteered for 10 years at Our Daily Bread in Canton and Hope Hollow for 12 years. The Bisek Family are truly role models of how a family should use their time, talent and treasure in support of the Catholic Church and the Community.
