Congratulations to our longest serving member, Joe Faletti! He's been a member of our council for 67continuous years.
Thank you Joe for your dedication and service all these years!
Thank you to everyone who came out and donated to Fr. Allam and got to see him again. If you didn't get a chance to he will be staying at Immaculate Conception for the rest of the month. This Sunday, 12/22 Fr. will be showing pictures of his missions in Fr. White Hall.
Fr. Allam's new assignment in Patibandla, India includes a parish, schools, orphanage along with his Mercy Home for the elderly which he started and program to feed the hungry which his family runs. We were very fortunate to have Father in our lives for the time he was here. Now he is spreading inspiration and hope to the people of India.
Sami and Joey present a check to Britney and Robert Kaluzny from Hope Helps to put towards their Special Needs Sensory Playground in Coal City. The money donated was raised through our annual Tootsie Roll Drive. Click on the picture to visit Hope Helps website and learn more about their amazing contributions to the local community.
Who We Are
The Braidwood Knights of Columbus is a Catholic lay organization, administered and supported by Catholic laymen, as a fraternal society (Order) seeking for each member (Brother Knight) to more firmly be footed in faith, hope, and charity, and to further their own growth in the knowledge of their Catholic faith and thereby be able witnesses of the mystery of salvation.
Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action. Knights volunteer countless hours of their time to charitable causes. We undertake these acts of charity because we see those in need through the eyes of faith. Moreover, in the Knights of Columbus, we approach these acts of charity together. Pope Benedict XVI called this the “practice of love...as a community".
