On October 27th, our Council hosted Cindy Russo from the Padre Pio group of Cleveland. She shared her experiences of how this Great Saint touched her life, and changed it to now help others discover him. She brought many Relics, including one of Padre Pio’s Chalices. Our first Chaplin, and Passed State Chaplin Father Janoch also attended sharing his thoughts about the Saint, and also the importance of the Knights of Columbus. He and Cindy also anointed those attendees who wished it.
On Sunday 9/29, we held our traditional fifth Sunday Rosary in Merici Chapel at St. Charles. We dedicated the Rosary to "Our Lady of Persecuted Christians". On hand for the event was one of the Icons of "Our Lady of Persecuted Christians" that the Supreme Council loans out for devotional purposes. A photo of the Icon is displayed below.

One June 22nd, our Council hosted it's first ever car show to benefit 2 ministries at Saint Charles that help feed the homeless. The event was well attended with over 80 cars displayed. Thank You to all the participants who came, and also to the many Knights who donated their time and talents. And especially to our Worthy Trustee Robert Porvasnik, who did an extraordinary job organizing and planning the event. We will be making our donations to the Cyrenians and the Holy Name Hot Meal programs soon!
Beginning on Monday May the 20th and running until May 28th, our Council will be sponsoring a Novena for Life. The Knights of Columbus are a very pro-life organization, and back it up with donations of Ultrasound machines that are used to show expectant mothers the beautiful creation they carry inside with the hope that they won't terminate the child's life. The prayer is shown below, and additional prayer cards are available at the Saint Charles Rectory. Thank You for praying for this important cause!
Here is the Cleveland area website that has a list of local events...
This month, due to the historic moment in U.S. Supreme Court history, the Knights of Columbus is urging everyone to join the USCCB in praying a nine-week Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life.
The novena begins on Aug. 3, 2018, and concludes Sept. 28.
Through our united prayers and sacrifice, we pray that God will guide our nation in becoming one in which every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.
