The modern Knights of Columbus is a service organization that provides an outlet for its members to better serve their church, country, and community.  We participate in charitable works, raising money and providing effort for groups in need throughout our communities.  We provide social fellowship, reinforcing our beliefs and strengthening the ties between families and friends.  It is our great privilege to serve and augment the activities of our parish and the church as a whole.  And we provide support for those members who may find themselves in need, especially through our long standing and excellent insurance program.

 

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age or older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Come and see what we are all about.

For more information about the Knights please contact: Bruce Kleckler at 630-357-6151 or Norm Bishop at 630-922-3586.

Thursday, May 22  White Sox game.  Game time 7:10 vs. Yankees.  Contact Glenn Domovic at 630-375-0551 or glenndomovic@comcast.net for more information.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Saturday's Highway Clean Up activity on May 3rd at 9:30 AM. 

 

All we need is YOU--we'll provide everything else. Just wear decent water resistant type shoes because the grass is always wet early in the morning. The grass is short and the trash should be easy to spot and collect. First collection of 2014--so there will be a larger quantity of trash out there--but we can handle it.

 

We will meet in the parking lots at Good Shepherd Church on 75th & Gartner near the 75th end of the parking lot and at the Lincoln Middle School parking lot at 75th & Olympus ---

We will hand out the gear and vests and we'll get out to 75th Street and underway. We need to meet in these two parking areas because the St Raphael First Communion Masses will be going on that morning and the parking lot at Church will be full. The two groups will cover the east and west side of 75th Street off of Modaff.

Once we get a head count of helpers---I will send out an email and break us into two groups for the two parking areas to assemble from.

For children & teens---we've attached a Waiver Form to safe guard our liabilities for working along the roadside.

Please let us know if you can help out--our magic target number is 15-20 people or more.
