Hello Knights,

    It’s plane pulling time again.  No cold water to plunge into instead its sunshine and a fun day for all.   The date is August 25, 2018 and I have attached a link below to my page for our council.


The goal this year is to have enough K of C teams to create our own division, so it would be council vs council.  All are welcome, so if you have a family member wanting to join in the pull have them sign up on our team by using my link below, or support our council with a donation.

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you all,

Greg Bendel

Knights Honor our Veterans

posted Apr 14, 2018, 10:04 AM by Don Benson

Grand Knight Thrasher Carmichael III and Financial Secretary David Renick, members of Knights of Columbus Bernard P Sheridan Council #6138 at our Lady Of Greenwood overhauled the veterans board located in the narthex of OLG that contains the pictures and names of parishioners serving in our military.

This project demonstrates to our Parish and community just how much the Knights of Columbus are proud of their devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nation and are among the greatest citizens.

If you have additional pictures that are not currently on the board or they don’t have a Name, Rank/Rate, and Branch. Please contact Thrasher or Dave at and they will work with you to get their picture and information on the board
