Rededication of Memorial for Unborn

On October 12, 2021 Christ The Redeemer Church held a service to rededicate the monument for the unborn from former Council property on Orion Road. The evening rededication service was led by Rev. Dr. William Promesso, pastor of Christ the Redeemer Church. Forty people attended the service, which was filmed by PGK Jim Roback and Brother Knight Tim Yoder. Knight Greg Korth arranged the transportation and installation of the movement, and Brother Knight Dennis Witmer arranged the service with Fr. Bill.

The rededication of the monument raised awareness of the Knights commitment to Pro-Life within the Christ The Redeemer community of 3,500 families.

Closure of the Council Hall and the sale of property necessitated relocating the monument. Rev. William Promesso recognized the importance of having such a monument at his newly assigned parish, Christ The Redeemer.

The solemnity of the procession and ceremony was witnessed by students, faculty, and parents involved with CTR’s evening school classes that occurred simultaneously with the rededication service. The Program marks a rejuvenation of Pro-Life activities at CTR. Members of CTR and its sister parish, St. Joseph Church, participated in the ceremony.

The Michigan State K of C Council has cancelled the 2020 State K of C Convention which will be replaced by a virtual online convention.

DD Joseph Brenner conducted a virtual District Meeting tonight, which FS K. Simpson missed. The Michigan State K of C is encouraging all K of C Councils to conduct their April Meetings by virtual or online until the Virus Shutdown is lifted. Our MI/ Tootsie Roll Drive will be rescheduled.
Brother Knights,

Due to the continued spreading of the virus all activities for our council are cancelled through April 30.

This may change based on future developments.

I hope and pray you are handling this and with the grace of God we will get through this horrible event.

Our faith is what we need to continue our daily activities and having faith will help us find ways to keep our minds and bodies active.

Simple stretching exercises for the body and playing games to keep our minds active will help.

I ask that we all pray the rosary every Tuesday evening at 7:00 just like we do at our council meetings.

Take a few minutes and call a fellow Knight to see how they are coping with the events that now control our daily lives.

May we all pray that we make it through this event with the least amount of burden.

May the Lord bless us and our families. Stay Safe, Stay Home, Stay Healthy

GK Jim

Our Mission

“The Michigan Knights of Columbus will foster the legacy of Fr.Michael J. McGivney to Serve the Church, build the Order and enrich our community.”

Who We Are
On Oct. 2, 1881, a small group of men met in the basement of St. Mary’s Church on Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut. They were called together by their 29-year-old parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney. These men formed a fraternal society that has become become the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization. One of the ideals of Fr. McGivney was to provide financial assistance to the widows and orphans of it’s members. This original idea grew into an organization of Catholic men dedicated to promoting the concepts of charity, unity, fraternity and Patriotism. Today faith, family, and fraternity is the foundation upon which the Knights of Columbus stands. The Order has been called the “strong right arm of the Church,” and has been praised by popes, presidents and world leaders. We have drawn praise for support of our Church, civic involvement and aid to those in need. From that first group of Catholic men we have grown to nearly 1.6 million members in 11,000 councils, in the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Panama, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Guam, the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas. and Saipan. In Michigan we have supported Boysville of Michigan since 1948 and groups such as Right to Life of Michigan, and the St Louis Center. Every year we raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the mentally challenged through the MI Drive. And local councils continue to support their local parishes, and communities.
