At our March meeting of last year, our Council decided to pursue having a "Corporate Communion Mass" during the months which have 5 Sundays. This is being celebrated by many of the KC Councils throughout the United States. The objective of the Corporate Communion Mass is a Show of Unity and Brotherhood within our Council and to increase the visibility of our Knights within our Parish Family, hopefully resulting in identifying parish men who would consider joining our Council 1762.
The next 5th Sunday is April 30th at the 8:30 mass.
The Knights and their families attending the mass should plan on sitting in the front sections on either side of the main aisle. if you have them, please wear your KC shirts identifying us as Knights of Columbus giving us greater visibility. the Knights will take Communion with the rest of the parish. At the end of mass, the Priest will mention that there will be several Knights available in the back for those having questions about the Knights of Columbus. We will attempt to have the mass said for all our deceased Brother Knights. If there are Knights ushering, reading, distributing Communion, etc it will be even better. A reminder of the upcoming 5th Sunday "Corporate Communion" will appear in the bulletin the weekend prior to mass. Below is the schedule for the 5th Sunday Corporate Communion masses in 2017.
-Sunday April 30th at the 8:30 mass/ Mass intention for "All deceased Knights"
-Sunday July 30th at the 10:30 mass/Mass intention for "All deceased Knights"
-Saturday October 29th at the 5:00 mass/ Mass intention for "All deceased Knights"
-Sunday December 31st at the 8:30 mass/Mass intention for "All deceased Knights"
We ask all Knights to make an effort to attend at least one of our 5th Sunday masses in 2017.
Thank You Knight
