The Knights of Columbus local Parish Council is looking for a few good men to join. They are the only active men’s group at the Parish and as you can see from last week’s Mother’s Day luncheon which they funded and hosted, (as an example) they are a vibrant fun group of like-minded Catholic gentlemen who have the best interests of the Parish at heart. Please feel free to contact Father Iura, Hank Lindgren, Myron Melnyk, Carl Harvey, Paul Zalonski or Andy Bamber with any questions that you may have. The Knights of Columbus is the largest men’s Catholic organization in the world and it has great insurance and investment opportunities that are tailor made for the individual member, These special programs are only available to members.
