Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

The 136th Supreme Convention occurred earlier this month in Baltimore last week.  As usual, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson delivered his Annual Report where he reported on the order’s accomplishments and continued commitment to bring Christ’s charity to millions.

Mission of Charity in the Middle East

“The simple, hard truth is that Christians are on the verge of extinction in the Middle East. We must not allow this to happen.”

“Since 2014, we have committed more than $20 million to aid Christians and those of other religions in their care. This money has provided food, shelter, and clothing.”

“In recent years, the Knights of Columbus has been assisting in the construction of McGivney House, a 140 unit apartment building that will provide housing for both Syriac and Chaldean Christian families.”

National Awareness Campaign

“No Christian has been abandoned by the Lord. And no Christian should be abandoned by us. To focus the attention of our nation on the plight of our brothers and sisters in the Middle East, this fall we will begin a National Awareness Campaign.”

Honoring Our Military and Veterans

“We brought more than 200 pilgrims to Lourdes. Our group joined 14,000 soldiers from more than 50 countries for the 60th International Military Pilgrimage to Our Lady’s Shrine.”

“We are also proud of our partnership with the Archdiocese for the Military Services and our support for the Co-Sponsored Seminarian Program. This program educates future Military Chaplains. … We will continue our annual grants of $200,000 for two more years. That raises our total contribution to $2 million dollars — double our initial goal.”

Knights from throughout the Order gathered for the opening business session and to hear the Supreme Knights report.

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

“The 136th Supreme Convention occurred several weeks ago in Baltimore last week.  As usual, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson delivered his Annual Report where he reported on the order’s accomplishments and continued commitment to bring Christ’s charity to millions.

Disaster Relief

“I am proud to say that Knights and their families responded to the challenge of supporting hurricane victims. We raised an astounding $4.2 million for disaster relief last year.”

“It’s about the lives that we change. We show that we care and that the poor and the marginalized and the broken are not forgotten. Through our time and money, we change lives in ways that only we can — because we make a fraternal difference.”

Culture of Life

“I’m pleased to announce that we have already placed more than 950 ultrasound machines and that we will meet our goal of 1,000 later this year. … What greater legacy can a council leave than to save the life of a child?”

“We will also remain at the forefront of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. … [as well as] pro-life marches from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Canada, Mexico and the Philippines.”

Prayer and Renewal of Pro-life Society

“I do not see how it is possible to build a culture of life in America as long as our elected officials harden their hearts to the cries of unborn children: I urge every member of the Knights of Columbus and all Catholics to join the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a nationwide Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life on each Friday from now to Sept. 28.”

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

“The 136th Supreme Convention occurred last week in Baltimore last week.  As usual, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson delivered his Annual Report where he reported on the order’s accomplishments and continued commitment to bring Christ’s charity to millions.

Our Pillars and the Common Good

‘If we value charity — if we value unity and fraternity — we will build a society where the common good is protected. And if we value these things, then we will protect the freedom that makes them possible.’

Brother Knights are Men of Charity

‘Our charitable contributions surged to more than $185 million. … It is one of the largest year-to-year increases in our history. Let me commend and thank every jurisdiction that helped us achieve this goal.’

‘The Order also donated more than 75.6 million volunteer hours, an increase of more than 500,000.’

‘The cumulative numbers are impressive, but more impressive is the fact that these works are done by individual Knights in their local communities — works done by men who are true Knights of Charity: men who are everyday heroes.’”

Over the next several weeks we will report on more the accomplishments noted by the Supreme Knight.
