Monsignor Gettlefinger Council #1264 in Lebanon held a 24-hour food drive for Central Kentucky Community Action on November 21-22. The food drive was very successful. Way to go Knights!
Congratulations to the Sir Knights of Fr. George Boehmicke Assembly #2753 in Hopkinsville. They reactivated their assembly and welcomed 12 new Sir Knights.
Note: masks were worn the whole time. Just off for pictures and then right back on before they moved.
Bishop Flaget Council 13053 is in the middle of a successful Coats for Kids program. They set a goal of raising $8,000 to purchase winter coats for those that cannot afford winter coats this winter. They are giving the coats to Catholic Charities so they can distribute them as they see best.
The following councils have also donated to this great cause. Fr Mount Mercy Council #14604 donated $500, Father William Diersen Council #13304 donated $500, and St. Michael’s Council #15525 also donated $500.
After posting the attached notice in the church’s narthex, the council’s total amount raised, including donations from other councils, is almost $10,000. What great success this has been!
On October 25th, Council #11470 in Georgetown collected approximately 60 pounds of donated items, and $250 in cash. And on October 30th we collected another $100, for a total of $250.
What makes today’s donation so extraordinary, the donor is from Brandenburg Ky. They were so inspired; they mailed their check donation to our council.
Similarly, The Not Alone Pregnancy Center emailed and expressed their appreciation, and included the impact they have on our community. Here is an excerpt of what they shared via email.
“We have Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, and sometimes Foster parents that need help with formula, diapers, wipes, baby clothes etc.
Recently we had a lady call and ask about an abortion. We explained we were 100% pro-life, and we talked for a few minutes. Fast forward, she came and visited the center and said that we had changed her mind and that she was keeping her baby. Thank you so much for your huge donation. It is greatly appreciated and will help many!”
