Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?
The Knights of Columbus held their 135th Supreme Convention last week in St Louis. In a stunning announcement during his annual address, “Supreme Knight Carl Anderson announced a new initiative to rebuild a town in Iraq destroyed by ISIS.
The supreme knight also cited the major accomplishments of the Knights of Columbus, such as the Order’s record levels of charity, with over $177 million in donations and over 75 million hours of volunteer service, growth in membership, and the continued strength of the insurance.
At the opening of his report, the supreme knight officially announced the convention’s theme.
‘This year marks our 135th anniversary. We celebrate our anniversary in a city named for a great and saintly Catholic king, a city of missionaries, and a gateway city opening up the promise of a new continent. And, like those early missionaries, we come to St. Louis because, in the words of this year’s convention theme, ‘We are convinced of God’s love and power.'”
