Grand Knight Report:
We will be having our Christmas potluck immediately after the meeting on December 11th. Please bring good cheer and a dish to pass.
This January our parish youth ministry will be joining with the diocese to attend the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. This is the first time our parish will be participating in the pilgrimage and there is a group of 19 going. At the last meeting there were still 18 spots available. Please contact Kendra Mitchell at 715-246-4652 X247 for more information. This will qualify our council for one of the mandatory activities for the Columbian Award.
Attention KC members, spouses and family members!
There is a need within the parishes for additional ushers at all of the masses. There have been some procedural changes in the usher’s duties. If you or family members are interested please contact Ed Zimmerman at 715-821-6555 or email at email@example.com.
Jared Gorka has delivered the Christmas poster contest information to St Mary’s School. Good luck to all those that participate
John Zipperer will once again be heading up the Basketball Free Throw competition to be held at St Mary’s School on February 3, 2019. More information will be forth coming. Please let John know if you can help out.
