Promoting a Culture of Life, Council 10240 held a Silver Rose Prayer Service for St. Luke Catholic Church on Friday, September 1st at 6:30pm.

“Through the Silver Rose Program, we honor not only Our Lady of Guadalupe and express the unity of the Knights of Columbus, but we also reaffirm our dedication to the sanctity of human life. It is to the Blessed Mother that we turn in prayer as we work to end the Culture of Death that grips our society. As we think in terms of ‘One Life, One Rose,’ it is most appropriate that we turn to Our Lady of Guadalupe who made known her will through Juan Diego and the miracle of the roses.” – Past Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson

Special thanks to SK Joe Torres and Felix Yruegas for organizing the service. SEE PICS.


Started in May 2019 by St. Luke Council 10240, the Traveling Chalice program was created to encourage families to pray for vocations and to promote vocations within their own family.

If you are interested or you know someone interested in taking the Traveling Chalice home for a week, see one of the ushers before any mass. Click here to see some of the recipients.

During the month of December, Council 10240 handed out two of our new wheelchairs purchased as part of the Global Wheelchair Mission. Thanks to BK Rafael Perez for leading this Faith in Action effort and for assembling and delivering the two wheelchairs.

Our first wheelchair recipient was a female parishioner of St. Luke. She requires an oxygen tank and tires easily just walking from room to room. Sadly, 40 years ago she was accidentally exposed to harmful pesticides that damaged her lungs. She and her husband were very happy to receive the new wheelchair.

Our second recipient was a male parishioner of St. Luke and a retired Vietnam Veteran whose wife saw our wheelchair and poster at the December taco sale. He was a translator during the war, and the couple met at St. Luke. He has back and leg issues and has not been able to get a wheelchair through Medicare or the VA. The couple was very grateful for the Knights of Columbus.


Council 10240's annual Coats For Kids (and adults) drive ran from November 5-13, 2022. Almost 200 coats were collected, cleaned, sorted and donated to local agencies. Culpepper’s Dry Cleaning once again cleaned all coats at no cost to our council. Charities receiving coats this year were Our Lady of Good Council Daily Bread Ministry, Christo Rey of Hope, the St Vincent de Paul Societies at St. Jude's and St. Timothy’s Catholic Churches and the Homeless Division Outreach Services through the City of San Antonio. Thanks to brother Knights Felipe Jimenez, Jose Lopez, Deacon Robert Garza, Ernie MacDonald and his 2 sons Noah and John, Michael Rios, Rene Olivares, and Ernest MacDonald for making this another successful coat drive!
