A Beautiful Icon finds a Home

By: Greg Brunson - Thu, Apr 27, 2023 7:39 PM

The last remaining Icon Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians has found a home at St Mary Catholic Church in Chelsea. 

Fr William Turner, former Knights of Columbus State Chaplain was elated to receive the Icon.   For years the Icon was without a home then my wife Suzanne came to the rescue and suggested Fr Bill.  Knowing that Fr Bill is PSD Ken Unterbrink’s pastor I called Ken and asked him if he thought Fr Bill would be interested – he replied ‘oooooooh yeah’.  The rest is history!

Rev. Fr William Turner, Pastor of St Mary Parish along with Deacon Wayne Slomiany and State Faith Director Greg Brunson.

Sunday April 24th, three Knights of Columbus councils participated in a bike giveaway at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church in Waterford Michigan.


Our Lady of the Lakes recently joined the expanding program. Despite the chilly weather, the day was a success, after all, it’s hard to frown when you’re riding a bike.

The councils that were involved in the Our Lady of the Lakes bike giveaway were Fr. John Howard Council #8500 from the Church of the Holy Spirit in Highland, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Council #7444 from Saint Mary of the Snow in Milford and Pope St. John XXII Council #5436 of Our Lady of the Lakes in Waterford.

Thank you to everyone who made this day happen.
