They Do More Than Fry Eggs and Sausage:
Folks get accustomed to seeing Knights at the serving line at benefit breakfasts, or handing out Tootsie Rolls in the back of church. These events are intended to raise money for local families in need or to support special church or civic projects.
But they do more than that — a lot more. Over the past few years they have repaired some local homes, supported our altar servers and ran local youth sports events. For those who have been up in the church tower, the metal stairways between the choir-loft and bells levels were lifted in place and installed by a team of KofC members.
In the photos above, Grand Knight Matt O'Hara is repairing one of the Lords Prayer signs a mile east of Beechwood Hill. Nobody told him to do it. He was just doing what Knights do!
This year's May Crowning was during 7:00 Mass on Wednesday, May 3. Cold, windy weather and a very wet church garden kept the services inside; but did not dampen the enthusiasm of the our PSR students.
The 2017 class of second and third grade First Communicants teamed with older PSR students to do the crowning ceremony. Following Mass, celebrated by Father David, the PSR students formed in a Living Rosary that encircled the front pews of the church.
