This will be a very special meeting to celebrate Field Agent Dan Conlon's retirement and Deacon Dan O'Brien's service to the Decorah and Ossian/Calmar/Festina/Spillville parishes. It will also be a travel gavel meeting, so we need a lot of Knights to attend. The celebration will start @ 7 pm with an Admissions (1st) Degree Exemplification followed by meeting, spiritual formation, and light meal. All brother Knights are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Mardi Gras is this Sunday FEB 11 2018. Help is needed with the bingo and 50/50 card game. Please call Grand Knight Sam if you can help (608-790-4246). Bring your kids/grandkids! They can help you or just spend your change.
LIFE CHAIN Life Chain is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing together, praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. It will be held, Sunday, Oct. 1st, 2017, from 2:00-3:30pm at St. Benedict Church. All are invited to participate. http://www.nationallifechain.org/
