K of C Presence at Easter Services wearing appropriate attire
Council: 2219 - WESTBROOK
In order to increase the visibility of the Knight of Columbus at St Anthony Parish, Westbrook, ME, it was agreed to by the Faithful Navigator of Assembly 856, and the Grand Knight of Council 2219, to have all capable members of Council 2219 wear their proper attire during all of the Easter Services on 3/31/18 and 4/1/18 and in conjunction to perform duties as Greeters, Ushers and Eucharistic Ministers. All 4th Degree members wore their Tux and Baldrics while all other members wore their blazers with the K of C emblem and their name tag. This was an impressive showing by the Council.
Council: 334 - AUGUSTA
When we became members of the Order, we were instructed to not just ‘attend’ Mass, but to ‘fully participate’ in the celebration. This means to actively join in whichever ministries one is capable, and allowed, to pursue.
The Triduum is the culmination of our Lenten journey; the fulfillment of the promise made to us at Christmas; and, the preview of the 50-day Easter Season. It begins with the Holy Thursday Mass, where we see the installation of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, the Eucharist, and the mandate to serve one another.
The Good Friday Service again teaches us about the Passion of Our Lord and reminds us of the greatest sacrifice ever made. We remember His death on the cross, and His gift of eternal life.
Our mourning and silence of Good Friday and Holy Saturday are changed into gladness, with the return of the Gloria, bells, and thanksgiving of His sacrifice for us, at the Vigil Mass. It foretells the message of Sunday, when the women, followed by the disciples, discover that, “He is risen, indeed!”
Knights of the Parish served at all three services in ALL ministries: Priest, Deacon, Choir, Usher, Greeter, Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Sacristan, and congregant.

Knights Spaghetti Social Supper
Council: 5515 - NORWAY
Council #5515 put on a spaghetti social supper to raise money for knights projects to support our church community. 10 brother knights worked together to accomplish the project. The supper was for the parishioners belonging to Teresa of Calcutta Parish and was held Saturday, February 17,2018 at St Catherine’s church. The project started mid January, 2018 by making up tickets and starting sale of tickets after masses until date of supper. Sister Rosalie, knights and others got some donated prizes for the supper. There were 13 prizes drawn at the supper and everyone attending enjoyed the drawing very much. Brother Alan De Silva provided music that was enjoyed by all. The knights setup the hall, prepared and served the food for about 100 people. Our knights wives donated deserts for the event. The folks that attended enjoyed a hardy meal and the families enjoyed each others company and indicated the meal was great. The project brought our Knight’s closer and families closer as one church family. After the supper was over our knights completely cleaned up and left the hall spotless. The event was completely funded by our council and thank you will go out to prize donors. The supper was a huge success and I’m very proud of our council’s commitment that demonstrated a core value of the knights of Columbus “charity”

Brother Knights and family members put in a tremendous effort to prepare and serve an extremely well received St. Patrick’s Day corn beef dinner, also featuring traditional red potatoes, cabbage, carrots, onions, turnip, as well as beverages and dessert. This is an annual event for our council, which always draws a large crowd. As in past years, we also had first class entertainment provided by the ever popular Stillson School of Irish Dance. This event produced a large profit, which will fund council activities and provide monies for charitable donations. As usual, we received many compliments, and a good time was had by all!

Easter egg hunt
Council: 5515 - NORWAY
Throughout Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday is a time of sacrifice and prayer to bring us closer to God. It is a somber time with Christ’s sacrifice and torment. We reflect on what He has gone through and try to imitate his actions with our own. Most of the people I talked to give up something for Lent and it usually is candy. Candy is a “happy” food and usually is a reward for making it through a difficult time, whether it be personal or religious. We have just been through a very difficult week, the lowest point being Good Friday. On Easter Sunday we find out that the Lord has risen! We are glad and rejoice. What better way to celebrate that joy than to give out “Easter Eggs”, the eggs are painted with a vibrant spring color coating that is easily cognizable to all. What joy it is to the person giving out the eggs to see the recipient smile and be amazed with their little prize. Christ give us “new life” on Easter Sunday and we return the favor with our giving of the eggs.
