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.
