The Memorial Chalice Program

 

The Memorial Chalice Program is designed to memorialize a 4th Degree Sir Knight who has passed away by presenting a chalice, with his name engraved on the chalice, to a bishop, priest, parish or mission.  Upon the family's recommendations, the chalice is then presented at the Memorial Mass which is usually held in November. The deceased Knight is remembered in every Mass in which the chalice is used.

 

By-laws of the Memorial Chalice Program:

 

  It should be an on-going effort within the assembly to raise volunteer contributions to support the Memorial Chalice Program.

 

The Assembly may increase annual dues from its members to help support the Memorial Chalice Program.

 

As operating funds become available, the Assembly should have at least three Memorial Chalices on hand to be presented as outlined in these by-laws.

 

With growth, should an assembly break away to form a new assembly, all funds and assigned chalices would stay with the original Assembly #3551. 

 

The deceased Sir Knight had to have been a good practicing Catholic and in good standing as a 4th Degree Knight.

 

The Assembly, in which the Sir Knight was a member, presents a chalice to a priest, bishop, parish or mission at the Knights of Columbus Memorial Mass usually held in November each year.

 

After the memorial service, the departed Sir Knight's name and appropriate dates will be engraved on the chalice as in the following example:" In Memory of SK John P. Sample 1939-2007".

 

The chalice may not be replaced with any other memorial; however other memorials may accompany it if desired.

 

The donated chalice should be on display near the head of the casket during the wake service.

 

Family members of the deceased Sir Knight will recommend the chalice placement to a bishop, priest, parish or mission of their choice.

 

The placement of the chalice must be deemed appropriate by Our Lady of Perpetual Help Assembly #3551

 

Should the family need assistance with the placement of the chalice, the Assembly may assist.

 




Serving-Those-Who-Serve Program

 

 

 When our country needed them, our Veterans answered the call to serve. Now members of the Knights of Columbus are being called to serve our Veterans.

 

Volunteers are needed at Veterans' Medical Centers on a regular basis.

Through the “Serving Those Who Served” program, councils and assemblies are asked to form corps of volunteers to meet the needs of our veterans on an ongoing basis.  Some volunteer opportunities for Knights of Columbus include the following:

  • VTN Drivers
  • Patient Escort
  • Customer Service
  • Medical Administrator
  • Warehouse
  • ER Ambassador
  • Same-Day-Surgery Ambassador
  • Health Benefits Administrator
  • GI Procedures Ambassador

Providing Transportation for Those Who Served

 

 Providing transportation is one of many ways to assist Veterans getting to and from the Richard Roudebush Medical Center in Indianapolis. Many of the Veterans are unable to drive themselves for medical appointments and often need frequent visits. Volunteers like Tom Weintraut have been driving Veterans and finds the need is great. In the beginning, the need was only met in Marian County because of lack of drivers. Today, we have additional drivers and have opened a center in Zionsville to service Boone County. Thanks to our local Fire Fighters, we now have a place to park the Boone County vehicle. More volunteers are needed to meet the needs of Veterans in Boone County. For more information, please contact Tom Schemmel at ts@ffgofin.com or call 317-873-5086.
