GRAND KNIGHT REPORT

Vivat Jesus

In writing my Article for our council newsletter, I asked myself what could I say that that
will have an insightful impact on our membership, and all I can think of is doing God’s
work. We are Evangelist of our faith, we, follow the beliefs of our faith, and our churches
mission is our mission, Love – Know – Serve – Jesus -Mary – Church - & World. The
Knights of Columbus has asked us to promote the Domestic Church and that happens by
doing God’s work.

God Bless
Tom Starynchak

Pullis’ Pro-Life Ponderings-8
WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE CATHOLIC! WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE PRO-LIFE! These are
some of the accomplishments in the Pro-Life arena in 2017:
Restoration of the so called “Mexico City Policy “that requires private organizations in order to be eligible to
receive foreign aid to sign a contract promising not to perform abortions ( with certain exceptions ), not to
lobby to change abortion laws of host countries or otherwise actively promote abortion as a method of family
planning.
Restoration of a policy to direct US funding to family planning programs not involved in China’s population
control program.
Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, a pro-life advocate, to the US Supreme Court.
Appointment of pro-life advocates to positions in Washington.
Participation by the President and the Vice President in the January,2018 March for Life in Washington
The following is a list of our 2017 accomplishments in this area plus an update on our current pro-life activities:
- The purchase by the Lennon Pregnancy Center’s of their new $30,000 ultrasound machine funded equally by
our Council and The Knights of Columbus Supreme
- Successful Pro-Life Essay contest involving our youth.
-In late January, 2018 we announced our 2018 Pro-Life Student Poster Contest-IT’S COOL TO BE PROLIFE!
All posters were to be submitted to the Parish Office by Friday February 23, 2018. We are looking for many,
creative and effective posters. As of the date of this article we are not sure how many entrants we will be receiving.
Cash prizes are $100 for 1st prize, $50 for second prize and a $20 gift certificate to Faith @ Work for 3rd place
winner for each Group (grades 7/8, 9/10, 11/12).
Please keep in your prayers the Pro-Life movement and participate in as many Pro-Life activities as possible and
continue to encourage our pro-life youth, many of whom who marched in Washington D. C. in January.
