The LENTEN season is upon us. As we prepare to give up something meaningful to us for the next forty days, let’s remember to not give up on our FAITH. Our faith is what makes us to be the person we are on earth and to prepare us for eternal life.
As a deceased member of the Knights of Columbus, you and your spouse will have a daily Mass said for you for the repose of your soul. This is something that nobody else can offer you. Let’s make this available to a friend or relative. Ask him to join the Knights of Columbus. Once he is a member, he will also be eligible for all the benefits that the Knights of Columbus offer, including many different types of insurance. There are many major degrees scheduled for the upcoming months. We also have available to us to do the First Degree via video if necessary. Becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus will make you a stronger Catholic.
As Spring is just around the corner, many times we are not sure what corner, and your State Convention is also just around the corner, April 25-27, 2014 in Dickinson.
Make sure you support your Chaplain in attending the Chaplain meeting on the 24th of April at Queen of Peace Church. Get them registered with Father Chad or Father Shannon, our State Chaplains.
PRAYER, BLESSED POPE JOHN PAUL
O Holy Trinity,
we thank you for having given to the Church
Pope John Paul II
and for having made him shine with your fatherly tenderness,
the glory of the Cross of Christ and the Spirit of love
for the Knights of Columbus
He, trusting completely in your infinite mercy
and in the maternal intercession of Mary, has shown himself
in the likeness of Jesus the Good Shepherd
and has pointed out to his holiness
as the path to reach eternal communion with You
Grant, through his intercession
according to your holy will, the grace that the
North Dakota Knights of Columbus implore,
in the hope that he will soon be numbered among your saints
