Red Cross Blood Drive

We had a blood drive on October, 22nd at the American Legion post in Ashburnham. We hoped for 25 pints of blood but actually got 41 pints of blood. we thank all that came and donated their time or their blood for this very good cause. The blood drive was in the name of Jim Graves who is in need of a liver and must get transfusions weekly. Of course, the blood goes to all who are in need as well. The drive is considered a great success.

Being a Knight?

What makes a Knight a knight? Is it a piece of paper? Is it a Medal? What makes a Knight is what he believes inside. A conscious effort to be better today than yesterday. To put aside his personal desires, to live a life of giving and love. We must hold ourselves to a higher standard, to try to imitate Jesus, and be "His" face to all we meet daily. No one can make being a Knight mean something unless we place value in it ourselves. 

The ceremonies we go through are meant to remind us of the importance of what we do and who we are. The world needs more Knights who believe in what they are doing. To put the meaning into what a Knight is. It is in the hard things we do that defines us. As President Kennedy said. "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country". He was a Catholic man who will always be remembered as a doer. It was his dream that put men on the moon. It was his generation that helped build this country. It takes one man at a time, to stand up, and say today I am going to build a better world.

Kerygma Prayer/Bible Study

I am offering something to give back to the Knights. We spend our time raising money for causes and helping others. Why not have something to fulfill us! I offer a bible study for those who want to explore their faith deeper. To those who never quite got the point from within the bible. Many of us use old bibles that no longer are clear in how we thing and speak. Others just need some help understanding some scripture. Remember the bible is the living Word of God, and sometimes we need to ask the Holy Spirit to guide our reading of the Scriptures. We also discuss our faith, experiences, and get spiritual direction here at the group. Come check us out!

Diaper Drive May 11th and 12th

The Knights of Columbus are hosting a Diaper drive May 11th and 12th. Please drop off New bags of Diapers of all types and sizes either in the church or in Fr Lacy Hall. We will distribute them locally and donate them to the big organizations that help women like in shelters and abuse cases. Please help women be the givers of life. They need to be given love and life so they can pass this on to their children.

Membership Drive End of April 27th and 28th

The Knights of Columbus are looking for a few good men. We are looking for some good young Catholic men to add value to our organization. We desire men of all ages to represent Catholic Men everywhere. Your membership gives you a voice to make the organization fun, interesting, and help people in the process. Talk with a knight at the end of Mass to find out more.
