YOU can save Christian lives in the Middle East

The archdiocese of Erbil, Iraq — home to one of the largest communities of displaced Christians in the Middle East — faces a shortfall of $600,000 a month in food aid. 

However, by donating a small gift each month, you can help save their lives.

How does this work?

Simply click here to select your donation amount and choose "Make this a monthly donation". Without the hassle of filling out additional forms, the same amount will automatically be withdrawn from your account each month.

And, if you donate before July 1, your donation will be matched by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. One hundred percent of all donations will be used to assist Christian refugees.

Click here and make a lasting difference today. 

 

The Knights of Columbus will match donations received by July 1 up to $1 million, and 100 percent of the money raised will be used to assist with food programs for Christian refugees in Iraq. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Knights of Columbus Charities Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

The Knights of Columbus has donated more than $12 million for Christian refugee relief since 2014 in support of communities ignored by direct U.N. or U.S. government assistance.

 

 

Perpetual Adoration Schedule

Brothers,

 

Below you will see the schedule for Perpetual Adoration going through summer. Everyone has 3-4 weekends depending on rotation/availability. This is by no means set in stone and is mutable to allow trades or changes amongst everyone in case something comes up later in the year that you were unaware of now. If you do need to trade please CC me (brendanpsheridan@hotmail.com) onto the communication for the sake of assuring coverage for that week. This will be put under the announcements section on our website for you to reference for a reminder.  Please let me know if you have any questions or other concerns, and more importantly THANK YOU for all your time and effort.

   

 

We are covering Sunday mornings at 2am for 1 hour. (i.e. Saturday night into Sunday morning at 0200 hrs). ABSOLUTELY ANY BROTHER KNIGHT (regardless if you have volunteered previously) who is able or willing to step up and help out as a substitute or even if only on a one time basis, please let me know brendanpsheridan@hotmail.com as the more brothers we have the less frequently we have to do it individually.

Thanks to all who have responded so far and prayers to those considering helping out now. Please come spend some time with your brothers in the presence of our Lord and Savior. IMPORTANT RULES: 1. Code to access chapel- contact Brendan Sheridan directly after you sign up to volunteer. This is meant to be kept secret. 2. Try to wait until your relief arrives. If you can not or your relief is late, please cover the Lord with the cloak in the chapel and close and forcefully lock the chapel. If you have any questions or concerns or if I can help in any way, please let me know

Brendan Sheridan

More Testemony Before Congress Regarding Christians In Danger!

Brother Knights,

The plight of Christians in the Middle East continues to be dire. The Christian populations in both Iraq and Syria have fallen to a fraction of their previous numbers. Many have been martyred, others have been displaced or had to flee for their lives. The Knights of Columbus continues to support the needs of these Christians, having raised more than $10.5 million on their behalf, and having supported projects with that money to provide food, clothing, shelter, catechesis, general relief, medical assistance, education and assistance for other critical needs.

As part of these efforts, last week Supreme Knight Carl Anderson gave congressional testimony of the plight of Middle Eastern Christians. He laid out a six point plan to secure their future in the region. The points he made have been suggested by John Allen of CRUX as important issues for the candidates in this year's election and can be read here

Last week the supreme knight also co-authored a piece with Archbishop Jean Clement Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria. It can be read here
