Brother Knights - we had a beautiful day on Saturday, September 23rd as 14 Knights of Columbus members volunteered to cook and serve lunch to over 500 Special Olympics Michigan athletes.  Each Knight put in an average of 4 hours of service, which saved Special Olympics Michigan over $3,000 in food expenses.

1Coats for Kids Update

 

The final checks have been received and tallied for the Coats for Kids program. As of 9/21/2023 the councils have collected and donated $129,410.15. This will allow for ordering a phenomenal 1,000 cases of coats through the Supreme BOGO program. All of the donating councils deserve a standing ovation and a huge THANK YOU!

Now the process of shipping and distributing the coats is our big focus. You will be notified (if you haven’t already) when to expect or pickup your coats.

 

Please send details to j.hundiak@mikofc.org about your distribution plans. I will be putting together a list of the large distribution across the State and publishing it.

 

If your council wants to donate funds towards next year’s program, please do so and I will track it for you.

 

STUPENDOUS JOB EVERYONE! Now let’s keep those kids warm.

The Mass is attended by our State Officers, the Fourth Degree Color Corps, and all Brother Knights and their families who wish to join. It is a beautiful gathering that allows us to come together and pay our respects.
 
Following Mass, we have the pleasure of attending a delightful brunch along with the current seminarians. This event is a heartfelt and significant occasion that allows us to come together to honor our fallen Brothers while also fostering connections with our future priests.
