hurricane season is not far off and bad storms can happen at any time. Please pray for
those in Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee and other areas hammered by tornadoes and bad storms this past March.

We have a good emergency response plan in place and a pretty good response kit containing safety gear and Red Cross Flood cleanup kits.  I ask you all to re-familiarize yourself with our plan. You can access it by clicking HERE . We would also like all Knights who are willing, to complete an Emergency Response Team Member form that will contain all your contact information, skill sets and is an easy way for each of us to list tools we have and are willing to bring to a response. Simply click the link below to access the form, fill it out, scan it and return to me via email. I will compile and maintain the data.

The link to the form is:


Thank you, Brother Knights, for your response!


Additionally, make sure your contact information with the Council is up to date. We will use it to
contact everyone at the time of need and send out email blasts with information.  Lastly, it is each Knight’s job to keep my contact information handy.  Use it to ask for assistance or energize the council emergency response to help fellow Knights and parishioners.

Food Handler Training for our Council

Fish Fries, Pancake Breakfasts, Fellowship Sondays, Fundraising Activities


As knights, one of the ways we serve the Church is by serving food to our fellow parishioners. When serving food, we should use the same safe practices as fine dining restaurants do. To that end, all knights and helpers handling unpackaged foods including fish, pancakes, hot dogs and hamburgers etc. are required to have a State of Texas Food Handler certificate. The certificate is good for 3 years. If you are a food handler in the Mercy Ministry, the food handler certificate is also required.


What: Texas Food Handler Certificate
Cost of training, exam and certificate: $ 7
Link for training, exam and certificate:

The on-line training takes about 2 hours, but you can pace yourself and start and stop as needed. You must get a minimum score of 70 on the exam but you can retake it until you pass. After you get your certificate, please forward a copy to Tony Pickett at

The goal for Council 8482 is to have all knights certified as food handlers so that after COVID-19 is under control, we can start serving food again.

We will also need Certified Food Managers to be present anytime there is a food event. This certificate is $35 and requires separate training. If you are interested in getting the food manager certificate, please contact Tony Pickett at 281-782-2634 to obtain training materials.


Ukraine Update

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your recent gift of to the Knights of Columbus Ukraine Solidarity Fund.

Right now, your gift is already being used to provide humanitarian aid to those affected by the war in Ukraine — including families like Roman Panivnyk, a Knight from Kyiv, and his wife Olga. If you haven't had a chance to listen to their story, I encourage you to do so:

Everything that we've been able to provide Roman, Olga and their children is thanks to your generous support and prayers, which has enabled us to raise over $7 million for the Ukraine Solidarity Fund.


The situation in Ukraine is changing daily, and through the support of our donors we are prepared to meet the changing needs of the more than 2.5 million Ukrainians who have sought refuge from the invasion.


Though we will be sure to update you periodically on our progress, you can find up-to-date information about our work in Ukraine at


If you have any questions about our work or your gift to Knights of Columbus Charities, you can always give me a call at (203) 752-4261. Thank you so much for being our valued partner!


In generous service,

Join the Knights of Columbus TODAY!

Becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus has never been easier, and I personally invite all Practical Catholic men, 18 and over, to prayerfully consider joining this wonderful group of men.  Our organization is dedicated to caring for the fraternal brothers and families of our departed brothers, supporting the church, our communities and the those being persecuted for our faith.

I hear many reasons as to why a man doesn’t join.  I also hear why those same reasons end up disappearing, when that same man joins.  The Prince of Peace K of C Council 8482 is looking for good Catholic men, who want to better serve and give back to their Church (POP) and community.  With more good men, we can better provide for our faith.

Contact Brother Knight Steve Beckholt if you have any questions on how to join the largest Catholic Fraternal Organization in the WORLD
