Mass for Deceased Members
Council: 9782 - WELLS
Each year members of our council, together with their wives and friends; celebrate the life and memories of our deceased members during the celebration of a Mass. The remaining widows are honored by escorting them to the front pews by an honor guard. After the homily, we then have the roll call of deceased knights asking the parishioners to bow their heads in memory of our deceased members as we respectfully call out their names. At the conclusion of mass, we gather in the hall where all the widows are presented with a bouquet of flowers followed by a meal prepared by many of our members. This is a simple way of letting our widows know that their husbands are not forgotten and that there is an affirmation that our widows continue to be a part of our Knights of Columbus family.
