Third Annual Trunk-or-Treat

posted Sep 20, 2017, 6:06 PM by Bernard Sheridan   [ updated Sep 20, 2017, 6:08 PM ]

The third annual Council #6139 Trunk-or-Treat is coming up on Saturday, October 28, 2017. We'll have trunks filled with candy, and countless little goblins, witches, superheroes, and princesses eager to get goodies at each one. We'll also have games and crafts (courtesy of the OLG Youth Group), hot dogs and cider, and hayrides (courtesy of Jim Flanagan).

We need Knights to aid with setup and cleanup, host trunks, donate candy, and bring their trunk-or-treaters. If you'd like to help, please contact Alan Inkenbrandt at (317) 246-9774 or alinken@gmail.com.

We hope to see you at the Third Annual Trunk-or-Treat!

We had perfect weather and a great turnout (about 110 kids) for the 23rd Annual Knights of Columbus - Council 6138 Easter Egg Hunt on the OLG south field Saturday morning. Thanks to all our brother Knights who volunteered and those who donated canned and boxed goods to the OLG food pantry!




Evangelization – Knights in Action

posted Oct 18, 2016, 7:49 AM by Bernard Sheridan

Dave, Tim, and Jamison, three Knights from council 6138, started evangelizing in the park in Greenwood and were surprised at the results. Most people accepted a Miraculous Medal and listened to an explanation, and some were open to more of a conversation about the faith.

We met a nice family from St. Barnabas who have been learning to pray the rosary at home.  Each took a rosary, a medal, and a guide to praying the rosary.

We met a Hindu man who at first was not interested, but when approached a second time we were able to find common ground and he was open to hearing about Christ and his church. He left with a medal and a card so he could contact us.

A fallen away catholic who had not been to mass since she left catholic school shared with us how she had been trying different churches and was not happy with them. She said she would consider coming to mass with us and took some pamphlets about returning to the Church.

Shirley was at first hesitant about the medal because she was more interested in Jesus than Mary, but she was open to discussion about how Mary points us to Jesus. She was so touched that we offered to pray with her, and we all prayed together for her son Alex. She left with some information about Mary and the Catholic faith, and a card to get in contact with us.

Overall the first day out was a success, and we cannot wait to do it again.

Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Indiana

On 
Saturday, March 5, the 2016 District 24 Polar Plunge team met at Eagle Creek Park to take a bracing dip into the reservoir's frigid waters. 

Over $2,200 was raised by District 24 Polar Plunge team! Thanks to Greg Bendel for organizing the team, to all the participants, and to our generous donors. All the funds raised by the Knights of Columbus goes directly to Special Olympics.

Special Olympics

posted Aug 11, 2015, 7:13 PM by Bernard Sheridan   [ updated Aug 13, 2015, 4:34 PM ]

Since 1968, the Knights of Columbus has raised and donated more than $600 million to programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities – Special Olympics ranks among the larger gifts the Order makes annually of time and money.

In 2005, the Knights of Columbus announced a partnership with Special Olympics; committing $1 million over four years to grow the program in North America in addition to pledging increased volunteer support for state and local games. The Order also pledged to work with Special Olympics North America to expand its program to underserved countries. The Knights of Columbus has subsequently extended that commitment through 2016.

The Knights of Columbus commitment to Special Olympics and to hundreds of grassroots programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities is an expression of our belief in the intrinsic worth of every human being.

Although the Special Olympics have grown in recent years, they still need our continued support. We encourage chapters and parishes around the world to organize fundraisers, events, and donation drives that will continue to benefit this magnificent event. The Special Olympics are too wonderful to overlook, and the Knights of Columbus are committed to bringing the games to all corners of the globe.
