 BILL AND NINI MILBRATH

SELECTED AS STATE KC FAMILY OF THE YEAR

 

The Bill and Nini Milbrath family was named the 2016 State of Wisconsin Family of the Year by the Wisconsin State Council Knights of Columbus. Bill and Nini were presented the award at the 116th annual Wisconsin State Council KC convention in Stevens Point. The Milbrath’s were chosen as the Family of the Year for the St. Croix Council 1762 in Hudson so their nomination was sent to the state for consideration as the Superior Diocese Family of the Year. They were chosen for this award and were honored guests at the State Deputy banquet where they were selected and awarded the state award. They were in contention with four other families for the State Family of the Year title. The Milbrath family will now be submitted to the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus for contention in the International Family of the Year Award. If selected they will be guests and presented the award at the KC Supreme convention in St. Louis in August.

Bill and Nini have three children: son Dan (and wife Heather); daughter Meghan (and husband Ben); and daughter Maureen (and husband Dion). They also have two grandchildren: Mallory and Lucy.

Bill and Nini are very involved in many activities at St. Patrick Church, the community and the Knights of Columbus volunteering countless hours throughout the year for the benefit of others. St. Patrick’s Church has been the Milbrath’s parish home for the past 41 years where they are involved with many activities at the church and school volunteering many hours. Their church volunteerism goes beyond St. Patrick’s. Bill and Nini along with their children have led 10 mission trips to Jamaica as missionaries delivering supplies and using their talent to improve conditions in a small town. Nini, a cancer survivor, with Bill’s help and support, has established and led a cancer support group in Hudson helping many others who experienced cancer. The list of activities and volunteering that Bill and Nini are involved in the church and community is overwhelming which is why they were chosen as the Family of the Year. They were selected because of what they do within the parish church and school, the Sister Parish, community and Knights of Columbus. They were selected because they do it so willingly and tirelessly for the benefit of others.

 

 

Corporate Communion

 

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 July 30th at the 10:30 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 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

 

 

Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Run
In 1960 Knights of Columbus Squires from Canada, United States and Mexico decided to honor
Mary by “running” a natural rose from Ontario Canada and presented the Rose to her on her
feast day, 12 December, at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico. By the
third year, it was the Running of the Silver Rose. In 1990s the Running of the Silver Rose
became an official event for the Knights of Columbus. In 2001 the Knights reaffirmed the Run
by recognizing the sacredness of life and Mary’s position as the Mother of God and our Mother.
We are now into the 57th running of the Silver Rose, the fourth year for Wisconsin Knights,
asking her to accept our thanks and to intercede for our petitions. There are six Silver Roses.
We are part of route 3 which started at Manitoba on 5 March. The Rose arrives in Wisconsin
from Iowa Knights on 16 July for 28 days. We pass the Rose to Illinois Knights on 13 August
after the Rose has traveled throughout the State of Wisconsin with 31 locations having special
prayer services. Knights will present the Silver Rose to Mary on 12 December at the Basilica in
Monterrey.
The Rose will pass through St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Hudson, WI, Sunday, July 23, 2017 at
5 P.M. for you to place your thanks and your petitions for Mary!!!!! Tell your family. Tell
your friends. With the problems that we have in this country, we should fill the church.
