Knights of Columbus:

The Knights of Columbus (KCs) are an international organization and the principle men’s organization at St. Margaret Mary. The Knights are a fraternal organization dedicated to charity, unity and fraternity. These men do many church, community, pro-life, family and youth oriented activities throughout the year. Among the many activities, the council sponsors an on-going aluminum recycling program, a monthly breakfast, a Mardi Gras and Oktoberfest social event and an annual garage sale to raise funds. The Knights help the clergy with the Lenten Stations of the Cross and they also lead the Rosary before every Mass. The parish always looks forward to the delicious Fish Fry offered on Fridays during Lent. For many years they have also sponsored an annual “Giving Tree” to help support the Leander Head Start Program at Christmas and they can be counted on to provide manpower for all parish events. For more information, please read their latest newsletter or see the advertisement on the back of the weekly bulletin.

The Knights of Columbus and the Guadalupano Ministry will be leading the Rosary before each weekend Mass. Make every effort to arrive at least 30 minutes early before Mass to join us in this special devotion. We need to ask for Our Lady’s intercession for the world of today.

Be sure to read Father Luis Granado’s beautiful article about Saint Teresa of Kolkata in the Summer 2016 issue of the Chaplain’s Report.  Fr. Luis writes that Mother Teresa is an advocate for the family, a saint needed by America, the world and the Church.

The KCs are actively recruiting new members, please call John to learn more about this steadfast parish organization.
