Council 9368 recognizes Cameron Meeker as Knight of the Year. Cameron made his major degree and 4th degree this year. He helped out with just about every program, including the Fish Fry, Food for Families, Free Throw Championship and more. Most importantly, he brought a sense of humor and good cheer, exemplifying KC principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
Council 9368 recognizes the Prybyla family as Family of the Year. Robert Prybyla has faithfully served our council for the last several years as Pro-Life director, and before that, other positions including Grand Knight. Sons Joseph and Rob are also brother Knights as well as Eagle Scouts. Marianne Prybyla serves on the parish Pro-Life Committee. Daughters Natalie and Marie are faithful, pro-life Catholics, and Natalie was awarded a scholarship by the Council. The Prybylas are a good example for Catholic families and actively live their faith through community involvement.
Update: This food drive brought in over 12,000 lbs. of food to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Many thanks to the St. William administration and community for supporting this food drive! Although the Lenten food drive is complete, collection boxes are permanently located in the St. William narthex any time you may want to donate throughout the year.
“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Mt. 25:40
