03/27/2020: Here’s what’s new!
Worthy Brothers and Parish Family…
We’re 8 days into a 15-day voluntary lock down. And is it boooring!
No one wants to go outside. And even if you did, there’s nowhere to go!
We’ve watched all our old DVDs. Seen game 7 from the Cubs 2016 World Series again and again (although it never gets old!) Outside of organizing your stash of toilet paper, what else is there to do?
Well it’s your Knights of Blessed Mother Council to the rescue. As long as we’ll all be stuck inside for a while longer, our Worthy Webmaster has put together this special Coronavirus Survival page.
You won’t find any news from the CDC on it. Instead you’ll find some interesting and entertaining tid-bits each day to help pass a few minutes a little more enjoyably.
So while we’re all doing our part to weather this storm, remember… Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Be sure to come back every day for more fun!
A Hot Time on a Chilly Night at Columbus Downs!
A dip in the temperature couldn’t keep racing fans away as Blessed Mother Council hosted our February Night at the Races. Food and fun were in abundance as our Emmanuel family came out to help us make it another great success. To see more pictures –> CLICK HERE <– And as always… Thank you all for your support!
Congratulations to Our Newest Brother Knights!
Blessed Mother Council continues to grow, attracting outstanding Catholic gentlemen from the parish of Emmanuel Catholic Church. Help us welcome our new Brother Knights: Richard Boruk, Francis Pais, Nicholas Cerino, and Guillermo Carrasco!
Blessed Mother “Star” Council!
Blessed Mother Council once again achieved Supreme’s honor of Star Council under the leadership of Past Grand Knight Tony Bubbico. Our Worthy District Deputy Jerry Liparito presented PGK Tony and the council with the awards for this achievement.
Congrats PGK Tony and everyone who made this achievement possible!
Knight of the Month!
Congratulations to our brother Bob Bonney for being honored with Knight of the Month for November 2019. Bob’s a tireless member of the council leading our bi-annual food drives as well as taking part in nearly every event Knights and church event.
Congratulations Brother Bob!
A Look Back:
A Blessed Easter Week at Emmanuel Church
From Palm Sunday through the Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and into Easter Sunday this past Holy Week was a solemn and faith-renewing experience for our Emmanuel family. And the Knights of Blessed Mother Council were present throughout.
We sponsored our annual RCIA reception to honor all our new Catholic family members after the vigil mass on Saturday evening.
And to add some family fun to the celebration we held our annual Easter egg hunt (a.k.a. The Best 7 Minutes of the Year) for the young people and families of Emmanuel Parish…
Oh, And if you’re interested in what goes on behind the scenes of this 7 minute extravaganza… Check out all the Easter Bunny’s helpers here! (<– Click the link!)
