A handful of Knights, once again got together to collect wood for our successful firewood sale. On this day, we obtained wood from three different locations. Here are photos from one of them.    …and there’s break time!

The Rite of Ordination of Priest for Fr. Craig Marion on June 3rd. One of the purposes of the Knights of Columbus is to support religious vocations. For the last three years, our council, #6824, has been sponsoring this seminarian at $2000 per year. Our efforts have come to fruition with this most blessed sacrament of Priestly Ordination. His Eminence, Adam Cardinal Mida, was also present.

On August 26th, the newly ordained Fr. Craig Marion visited St. Anne’s to celebrate the vigil Mass. During the Mass, the Fourth Degree and the Color Corp presented Fr. Marion with a Chalice in honor of SK Ed Valverde who had passed on. His wife, Donna, handed the chalice to Fr. Marion.
