Life: Knights Join St. Gregory in March for Life 2020

LIFE:

St. Benedict Council Knights of Columbus and the families journeyed to Washington DC with a busload of parishioners, and hundreds of thousands to join together in the March For Life 2020.  For the first time, a sitting President attended.  You can view President Trump's stirring address here:

Read the scrolls of the #whywemarch
to see the worldwide impact we are having. But, sadly note the rolling counter of murder put forth by the pro-death crowd, and pray for them and for the lost souls.

 

If you'd like to watch the March in all it glory, all be it in fast-motion, check out this link from the Students for Life: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=po6Yg-eUS-E#

Fraternal: Polar Plunge Dinner

Once again, our Council hosted Polar Plungers and their families from Knights of Columbus Councils across the Commonwealth.  On 7 February we served a pre-plunge pasta dinner meals to 60 guests to fortify them for the challenge ahead the next morning, as they plunged to raise funds for the Special Olympics

Family: Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary Mass, Dinner and a Movie!


 August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary.  This year, the Knights of Columbus honored Our Lady in service during the Mass in our green shirts as ushers, readers and Extraordinary Ministers at St. Gregory the Great.  Then we joined in support of Deacon Darrell after the 6:00 evening mass by preparing and serving food to parishioners, family and friends in the school cafeteria.  Knights cooked WHAT for over NUMBER who came to share in the communal support, which was then followed by the movie "Jesus Feeds The Hungry"

Faith: The Veil Removed

FAITH:

This video was shared at our January monthly Council meeting. It is moving and worth sharing with all, especially the many Catholics that have fallen away, or don't believe the Real Presence is the cornerstone of our faith.

Last year, a Pew Research study, found that only 31 percent of Catholics believe the Church's teaching on transubstantiation — the moment during the consecration at Mass where the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus Christ. That's down from 50% a decade ago!

Observing the way Holy Communion is handled and received provides some insights- watch as you attend Mass today. More importantly consider your disposition as you process. Are you thinking about what you have to do on the way home? Or unforgiving of some perceived slight in the parking lot on the way into Church?

In response more and more faithful receive Communion on the tongue while kneeling. Watch the video and reconnect!
