Lenten Materials Display

Weapons of Salvation Lenten Materials Display

The display, which offers free prayer aids and information on how to use them, was blessed by Resurrection Pastor Fr. Jubish Joseph, and will remain in the parish hall through the season of Lent.

Past Grand Knight Bill Schoos, had the idea for the display come to him in a dream. With his many years of involvement with the Church he saw the necessity of the program, so he began collecting materials and conceptualizing the layout before bringing the idea to the council at their regular meeting in February. The initiative received overwhelming support from his brother Knights as well as from Fr. Jubish and the parish administration.

In the short time that the display has been in the parish hall, it has proven very popular with the parishioners. Schoos hopes that the display will not only provide free objects but will also remind parishioners of the wealth of prayers that they are provided by Holy Mother Church, particularly during the Lenten season.

The many items offered are, free containers of Holy Water, Brown Scapulars, Rosaries, St. Benedict medals, Miraculous Medals, St. Anthony Medals, and other devotions as well as informational pamphlets on the origin and importance of each. Some of the Rosaries were donated by parishioners, and the Holy Water along with some of the printed materials for the display were provided by the Church of the Resurrection, with the remainder of the materials having been purchased by Schoos and the Knights of Columbus Council.

The display will remain available in the parish hall at the Church of the Resurrection on 900 Quincy Street in Hancock through Easter. For more information, or with follow-up questions contact Hancock Council #692 current Grand Knight Jon Jaehnig at 906-231-4399.
