Pool League

The Columbian Club will be sponsoring a 10 week long Pool Tournament starting on Saturday March 24th and running every Saturday until May 26th.


It will be a Scotch Doubles format (alternating shots). Teams will be picked out of the hat. Each week the wining team players will receive 2 points and 2nd place will receive 1 point. After 10 weeks the top 3 players with the most points will be awarded the prize money. The cost is $10 per week per player ,with 50% of the monies going towards the weekly prizes ( 1st and second place teams) and the other 50% going towards the season long prizes awarded to the top 3 with the most points. This will be a double elimination so if you lose your first game you can still bounce back and win it all! Come on down to your Club and enjoy some pool and some friendly competition.

Shoulder To Shoulder Program

To kick off this program the Trenton Diocese Federation designed and purchased 1,050 magnetic bumper stickers with the Order’s logo in juxtaposition with a generic police shield and the statement “Shoulder to Shoulder – With our Brothers in Blue”. These are available for a donation of $5.00. The funds generated by this project are to be applied to the establishment and development of an ongoing Public Service Announcement campaign promoting and supporting the law enforcement community. Councils are encouraged to utilize their portion of the proceeds to create and implement other programs that promote a positive image of law enforcement in the community.

Vivat Jesus!!!

Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life:

This month, due to the historic moment in U.S. Supreme Court history, the Knights of Columbus is urging everyone to join the USCCB in praying a nine-week Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life. The novena begins on Aug. 3, 2018, and concludes Sept. 28.  Through our united prayers and sacrifice, we pray that God will guide our nation in becoming one in which every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.   Please click on the following link to join:


Prayer Vigil Outside Abortion Facilities:

One small way of taking action is to volunteer an hour or two each week with your local “prayer warriors” who hold vigils outside of local abortion facilities. The typical activities consist of holding signs, saying the rosary or other prayers, handing out brochures, or even talking to young women entering the facility.  [NOTE:  There is an abortion facility located in Candlewood Commons here in Howell.  A group of people assemble each Wednesday morning at 10:15 AM and Friday afternoon at 2:30 to pray the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet.]


The NJ Physician Assisted Suicide bill A1504/S1072:

This bill was released from the Assembly Judiciary Committee on March 12, 2018 after the Committee heard hours of testimony. PLEASE NOTE: The bill to legalize physician assisted suicide (A1504) is certain to be raised in the Fall.


Continued prayers for our Holy Father and our Holy Catholic Church.


Pray the rosary every day for peace in our country and around the world. Opposing factions in this country and internationally have caused split or divisiveness seemingly beyond repair. Please pray to our Blessed Mother daily.


Respectfully submitted

Andrew E. Lipenta, PSD, VSM

R&C Committee Chairman
