Parish Priest Fr Walsh recognizes his local Council

By: Gary Merritt - Thu, Jun 10, 2021 10:41 AM

Recently, State Treasurer Barry Borsenik posted an article commemorating a Mass for the 75th Anniversary of Dexter Council #2959. 

We are very fortunate to have a video of Fr. Brendan Walsh and his offering of the Holy Trinity Sunday homily to the 75th Anniversary of Dexter Council's Knights of Columbus.

This is a must-see homily showing Fr. Brendan’s support of his council at a milestone anniversary and ties in the gospel message of Holy Trinity Sunday. It should be an encouragement for all councils to serve our priests, parishes and communities to the best of our abilities.

Share this video at council meetings and with potential members to give them and their families a clear message of the importance of being a Knight of Columbus. Then, while asking for greater or continued participation of current members, ask a potential member to join us as we serve our parishes and communities.
