In Honor of Altar Servers

Brother Knights,

On Sunday, June 3, at the 9am mass, we will honor those who serve our priests at the altar. Our pastor will call them forward and present each with a certificate that our Council has provided. After Mass, there will be coffee and donuts in the Parish Hall. Come join us in honoring these youth who serve.

Wear your blue Knights knit shirt, so we can sit together and show our colors.
