Welcome Home Carts for Veterans
May 27 - Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend we delivered 20 Welcome Home Carts to the VA facility in Coatesville. These carts help veterans transition from VA care to a new residence by providing basic in home needs like paper products, towels, dish detergent and other products. Touchstone Home Products in Exton graciously allowed us to use their warehouse to store and assemble the warehouse carts. We will be doing this project again in October, so if you would like to participate contact us! For more pictures, click here!

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.
