      • A motion was made and seconded to support the Life Teen Camp expenses of $2500 by Fr. Philipp.  Since this amount is above $500 and it is not a budgeted expense this will remain as a resolution for 30 days to be approved at the next meeting assuming the funds are determined to be available by the board.  More discussion will be held at that time.

Breier regarding the purchase.

Pro-Life Mass and Prayer Vigil

Third Saturday of the Month The Archdiocesan Pro-Life Committee sponsors a Mass and Prayer Vigil on the third Saturday of every month that the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis (Lindell & Newstead, in the Central West End). Entitled ‘Helpers of God’s Precious Infants’, the Mass begins at 8:00am and is followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Immediately thereafter the rosary procession/witness begins and proceeds from the Cathedral to the Planned Parenthood Abortion facility. My Brother Knights all; This is a very effective way to serve God, His Church, and the K of C in support of the Sanctity of Human Life at ALL STAGES. This public, prayerful witness is an affirmation to Life and a visible sign against the pervading culture of death in our societyJoin US!!!

Fifth Sundays

Fifth Sundays in 2019:  Mar 31, June 30, Sept 29, Dec 29  

Fifth Sundays are supported by the Knights as a way to celebrate mass with your family and brother Knights. We try to fill all the mass ministries by providing hospitality, Extraordinary, lector and music ministry positions during the 9:00 am mass. After mass we meet with other brothers and their families for breakfast at a local restaurant. Bill Radman, our Church Director, organizes this. If you can help with one of the ministries give him a call at (846-5810). Otherwise please join us.
