The Sacred Heart council is honored to receive the Contest of Champions award for the Michigan district. The award was presented by our district deputy Bob Grove at our December 14th council meeting.
The Contest of Champions Award is presented to two councils in each state jurisdiction: the council with the highest percentage growth in membership, and the council with the highest numerical gain in membership. No application is required for this award as eligibility is automatically determined by the Supreme Council.
The Sacred Heart council is honored to be recognized for our work in membership and programs. Thank you to all the men of the council who helped bring this award to Sacred Heart. View a picture from the presentation here.

A CNN story posted on in late February stated that the Christian population in Iraq which was approximately 1.5 million a decade ago has dropped to less than 150,000. As more Christians leave everything behind and flee for their lives the Knights are there providing relief. Click here to find out more and see what you can do to help.
