Knights of Columbus Council 1395 Christmas Food Drive
This year, like in the past few years, the Knights of Columbus will not be collecting canned or dry goods. Instead, we will be accepting monetary donations only. The collection will start Thanksgiving weekend. The Knights will match up to $750 for all the money collected from the parish. The proceeds will be donated to the SafeNet Ministries Inc. in January. Marked envelopes are in the pews and can be dropped into any collection basket during mass through the end of December or dropped off at the Parish Office. To assist us in this process we ask that donations be in cash or checks (made out to “K of C Council 1395” ). The Knights of Columbus thank you in advance for any donation you can make.

The game may have been rained out but not all was lost. Those attending still enjoyed the food and camaradarie as we waited for a final word on the game. Since it was the last game of the season tickets can be redeemed for a game next season.
The Knights of Columbus is a worldwide organization of Catholic men begun by the Venerable Father Michael McGivney in Connecticut in 1882. They began as a fraternal benefit society and still adhere to the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity. Their benefit to the Catholic Church of America has been inestimable. The Knights have come to the defense of our faith and our Catholic people from 1882 to the present. Currently, there are about 1.8 million members joined into 14,000 councils.
The Knights of Columbus is linked to the local parish(es), supports it, and works with the local Pastor. It is not a parish organization. To this end, it has been able through works of charity, donations, and education to support the National Basilica, EWTN, and the Holy Father.
The Reverend Felix J. O'Neil Knights of Columbus Council Chapter #1395 was chartered at St. Edward Church in 1908. Our motto is: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. As an organization of Catholic men who support Priests, Church and Community. The Knights of Columbus meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month in the Parish Hall. For more information, please contact Dave Broer at dbroer@lincon.
