The Knights are bringing back our annual chili cook off on Saturday, November 9th. This year we are featuring chilies from our local businesses and individual foodies from the community. All our guests will get to vote and select winners in both pro-am categories. Everybody wins because all proceeds go to support Knights’ charitable causes.
The Sacred Heart Knights are proud to support the 2019 Sacred Heart All Saints party by helping to collect candy and supplying hot dogs for the pot luck dinner. Please register here so that we will have enough food and candy available for all the guests.
Our council is proud to announce our 13th annual Keep Christ in Christmas card contest for kids from preschool to 12th grade. Those who want to participate can download an entry form with complete rules here.
This year we will also be selling winning cards from previous years to raise money for the Sacred Heart Academy art department and other charitable causes. Sales will start in mid-October, but you can reserve boxes here.
In addition to selling cards to help support the arts, we will be sending winning cards from prior years to shut-in Sacred Heart parishioners to remind them that we care for them and are praying for them in the Christmas season.
The Sacred Heart council will once again be sponsoring the Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest. The council contest is part of the essay contest sponsored by the Supreme Knights of Columbus. Winners at the council level have a chance to participate in the state level with the chance to move on to the international level.
During the month of May the Sacred Heart parishioners and Knights helped moms with the “Thank You Mom Campaign”. We are collected formula and cash donations to help moms and babies served by HELP Pregnancy Crisis Aid.
The Knights also passed out seeds as gifts to all moms of Sacred Heart on Mother ’s day weekend.
As bishops from around the world meet with Pope Francis, the Knights of Columbus will begin the Novena for Repentance, Renewal and Rebuilding. The bishops meeting will run from February 21 – 24 to discuss the sexual abuse crisis. The Knights of Columbus ask all Catholics to join us as we embark on this nine day novena of prayer for the success of this landmark Vatican meeting. Please see attached novena prayer card for prayers for each of the nine days.
