Adopt-A-Trail Program – Through October 2022
Once again this year, our Council will help maintain the trail that runs from the front of St Elizabeth Church, to the covered bridge, then back to the end of the church property. We are looking for volunteers to walk and clean the trail during the months of April, June, August and October.

July 2 - Our Council will lead a Patriotic Rosary in the church at St. Elizabeth at 7:40 am, prior to the 8:30 am Mass. Inspired by Our Lady, the Patriotic Rosary is a powerful prayer for divine protection and mercy for our Nation and our government leaders at all levels. Each decade of the Patriotic Rosary starts with a historical quote from famous leader, recognizes our states and is followed by the singing of a hymn.

Thank you to the Steve Pucchino and the Brothers who helped support this. We hope to do it again next year.
Clothing Drive to benefit St Vincent de Paul Society
June 4th / 5th - We collected gently used clothing and other household items after all Masses to benefit St Vincent de Paul Society. We do this each year, and as usual the members of the parish community were very generous with their donations to assist those in need.
Thank you, Steve Puccino, for coordinating the collection this year!
Golf Outing for Charity
June 3rd - Thank you to all the golfers, sponsors and volunteers who made our Annual Golf Outing for Charity a success! We had over 70 golfers register for a terrific day at Kimberton Golf Club. The weather could not have been better. While we didn't have any big prize-hole winners, we enjoyed lots of food, drink and each other's company! The proceeds from this event will be going to support the charitable activities of our Council local community.
Thank you to Brother Jason Ameen for coordinating the event this year!
Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic
The Knights of Columbus has published the prayer said by Pope Francis and Archbishop Lori online, calling on members and Catholics to say the prayer over nine days as a novena beginning Sunday. It especially prays “for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable and for those who have died.” It adds: “Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.”

Message From The Grand Knight
The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by the Venerable Servant of God, Father Michael J. McGivney in St Mary's Church in New Haven, CT. If canonized, Father McGivney would be the first American born priest to become a Saint.
