Lee Borycz, Rest in the Peace of the Lord

We are sad to lose our beloved Lee Borycz, the wife of our Worthy Advocate Jerry Borycz. Lee was a huge part of our council family and we will miss her greatly.
 
Her funeral will be at the parish at noon this Saturday, September 7th. She will have a Scripture Service at Griffin Funeral Home in Livonia on Friday, at 6:30pm.
 
Eternal rest grant unto her,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.

KNIGHTS DONATE $185.7 MILLION TO CHARITY IN 2018

The K of C has announced that it gave $185.7 million to charity and donated 76.7 million hours of hands-on service in 2018. Contained in the annual fraternal survey, it demonstrates once again that charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus.

“Regardless of how or who the Knights serve, it’s the chance to help those who are unable to help themselves and to be of assistance to the sick or disabled that is at the heart of what being a Knight is all about,” said Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.

The Knights’ charitable giving comes from three sources: direct fundraising, the funds raised by thousands of local Knights councils in their communities and from the Knights’ insurance operations.

Ending Dismemberment Abortion

End Dismemberment Abortion in Michigan

We will be after EVERY Mass on Saturday and Sunday with petitions. Almost every parish and KofC council in Michigan will be collecting signatures. All we have to do is collect 400,000 signatures and it will force this bill back to the Michigan House and Senate where they have already approved it. The governor will not be able to veto it. Together we can do this and end this barbaric practice.
