I would like to announce that the Knights of Columbus has donated our first wheelchair to one of our own parishioners. On Monday the 27th of July we presented Kathy Huffman (a long time parishioner of Saint Patrick) whom is at New Mark Care Center in Kansas City North. Kathy has an amputated leg and was in need of convenient mobility. Jesse and Rosie Gonzales as well as my family presented Mrs. Huffman with the wheelchair, which was received with a warm and heartfelt "Thank You". The Chairs donated by the Knights are lightweight durable and easy to store and easy to operate. This is one of the many ways that our Council is here for our Community and Parish. If any one knows of anyone that is needing our assistance please free to contact me.
The Knights was formed through the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.
The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
