Knights of Columbus
St. Louis Martin Council (#15256)
Welcome Message from the Grand Knight
Brothers: As we prepare our hearts for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is a great time to look back over the past few months.
As a Council, we have been richly blessed with 15 new members. Our efforts on the Parish picnic, pancake breakfasts, Gender Ideology presentation and Advent retreat have fostered community and provided a venue for families and parishioners to come together. We have raised funds to give dignity to the intellectually disabled, our Seminarians, persecuted Christians in the Middle East, The Archdiocese for the Military Services and more. Knights and the youth of our parish continue to lead our parish’s food donation program for the Catholic Charities Food Pantry. Our brothers honor our Vets flying in on honor flights, repair houses, serve as ushers, provide sweats to our vets, organize Festival of Trees, and promote Keeping Christ in Christmas through card sales. You have visited the sick, supported our priests and deacons, prayed for brothers in need, enhanced our communications, and performed countless small acts of kindness.
I look forward to seeing you in December during the many activities we have planned and wish you and your family a joyful Christmas season. We have much more to accomplish in 2022 and I know that you will continue to spread Christ’s love in our community.

The Knights invite the entire St. Theresa Parish community to an Advent Retreat, on December 4, 2021. The retreat will begin in the Church with 8:30am Mass, followed by a light breakfast, and two Advent-related talks by our clergy in the Church, with some quiet prayer time. We expect the retreat to end at about 11:45. This should be a great way to get your Advent spiritual preparation off to a good start. Hope to see you there!

On Tuesday, July 20, two St. Theresa parishioners turned FOCUS Missionaries, Maggie Good and Kathryn Karasinski, gave a talk on FOCUS and its mission. “If you do not know FOCUS, we challenge you to meet a FOCUS missionary and hear their story. Guided by the Holy Spirit, FOCUS is one of Christ’s best weapons.”
