The Knights of Columbus congratulate First Degree members Fred Milan and Tom Welsh, who were named April’s "Knights of the Month" at their recent monthly meeting in Forest Lodge.
Like all members afforded the honor, Fred and Tom were recognized for their exemplary service to the parish, neighborhood, or the local council. In this case, Fred and Tom were able to help parishioners with potentially severe emergencies during our late winter. In so doing, they exemplified the first principle of the order, “charity,” by giving their time to assist others.
Worldwide, the KofC raises a large amount of money for charity each year, but its members’ commitment of time is enormous. Knights collectively volunteered more than 70 million hours of time to their churches and communities last year.
If you are a Catholic man aged 18 and above, why not consider becoming part of “the strong right arm” of the church by becoming a member? Talk to a Knight, or see akronkofc.org for more information.
