*The Novena for Life is a special 9 week K of C program in which we are required to participate.  It is essentially a Rosary and additional prayers.  Our District is helping sponsor this and we will do it together with other Knights in our District.  The sessions at QoP will be held before the 8:30 am Saturday Mass at the Queen of Peace statue by the parking lot door to the church; Each Council in our District will have their Council session two times during the 9 weeks at the Aid to Womens Center Chapel at 1849 E Baseline, Tempe.  Note the start time there is 9:00 am.  There are restrictions on where we can park when we go there.  Also, for January 19 each Council is asked to send 4-5 representatives to the AWC Chapel at 8:30 am in addition to holding their session at their home parish.  Other parishioners active in Pro-Life efforts should be encouraged to attend.  SK Joe McCawley is coordinating our Council’s efforts on this & can be reached at for further information at 480-688-1646 or .


Our Membership Committee is in need of additional Knights.  Members will help shepherd new members by reminding them to attend meetings and participate in at least some of our activities.  They will also encourage all of our Knights to complete the 2nd and 3rd Degrees as soon as possible.  Please contact our Grand Knight and/or SK Chet Yancy if you can help out with this.
