Robert Cadotte was named our Knight of the Year at our final membership meeting for the 2017-2018 fraternal year! Grand Knight Robert Schoenborn presented him with the award noting his dedication to the council and being present at many activities when it may not always be easy for him to do so.
Our council was honored to be a part of the Westland-Wayne American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
Our very own Deacon Derik Peterman was featured in the online version of Columbia, the official magazine of the Knights of Columbus!
James Wolf was known for his infectious smile, his commitment to serving others, and his love for the Knights of Columbus. As a recent high school graduate, he even inspired his father, Bob, to become a Knight. Shortly after becoming a Knight, James joined the Army. Sent to Iraq with the 52nd Engineer Battalion, he was killed on November 6, 2003, when an IED exploded near his convoy. In the face of this tragic loss, his family found solace in the love shown to them by fellow Knights and their pride over James’ faith and sacrifice.
Darrell Miller, Sr. played for five years with the California Angels and hails from one of the most famous sports families in the country. His sister, Cheryl, is widely regarded as the greatest women’s basketball player ever, and his brother, Reggie, is an NBA Hall of Famer. For Darrell, a committed Catholic and Knight of Columbus, sports are a vehicle to grow one’s character and faith.
