Family life is under siege in the secular popular culture. Traditional marriage is redefined by the courts and family values are openly challenged in the media. Christians and people of good will are praying and working faithfully for a crucial change in direction. Join The Austin Chapter Knights of Columbus for the Annual Mass for Families celebrating the family and praying for God’s protection of the essential unit of our human society. This special Mass and reception will be held at St Albert the Great in Austin on Saturday June 30th at 10:00 AM. Join us for this powerful event.
Brothers, our “June” meeting will be held Wednesday, May 30. We are rescheduling from the usual date because St. William is not accepting facility reservations during the first week of June. This will be an important meeting as officer elections will be held. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. Usual time and location – 7:30 p.m. at the Fr. Michael J. McGivney Pavilion at St. William. Thanks!
In order to provide opportunities to bond with our sons, the Council is planning events designed to appeal to younger Knights or future Knights. You can also invite your daughters, wives, friends…but especially consider inviting someone who might one day become a Knight of Columbus.
The events are a rock climbing adventure and a zipline experience. You can find the details by clicking on the links:
The Texas State Council will award at least one $1,000 Educational Grant per diocese and two more $1,000 Educational Grants to members of the Columbian Squires. The total number of grants for each Diocese will be determined using a formula based on the number of Knights in each Diocese. Applications for these grants are due March 1, 2018. Winners will be announced at the State Convention.
Note: These grants are from the Texas State Council; they are not related to the scholarships that Council 9368 will award in the Spring.
Who is Eligible?
An applicant must be a Knight of Columbus member in good standing of a council located in Texas, his wife, son or daughter. A granddaughter or grandson of a member in good standing in a council in Texas may apply if their father is not a Knight or is not in good standing. Descendants of deceased members or grandfathers who were in good standing are also eligible. Any graduating senior of a Catholic High School in Texas is eligible when sponsored by a local Council in Texas – even when the student’s parent or grandparent is not a Knight.
