Happy Thanksgiving! We pray you have a great holiday. Remember, we are grateful to have you in our fraternity and we will always take your prayer requests.
This upcoming season we have a couple upcoming events to help give back and also enjoy fellowship.
Coats for Kids Giveaway - Saturday, 24 November 9:30am to 12pm at ***St Vincent de Paul Church***. We bought the coats, now time to give them away. We, SVdP, and St Dominic's are teaming up to give them away at the St Vincent de Paul's foodbank.
St Peter's Money Counting - Tuesday, 27 November 6:30pm to 8pm at St Peter's Church. Several of us gather to count collection money. The more the merrier.
Movie Outing - Sunday, 2 December at AFI Silver (8633 Colesville Rd, Silver Spring, MD, near the Silver Spring Metro) from 5pm to 8pm. The local Ancient Order of Hibernians (Irish-American Catholics who we have a great relationship) invited us to see the movie Black '47 about the Irish potato famine.
First Friday - Friday, 7 December at St Joseph's from 6:30pm to 9pm - Confession, Adoration, Mass and Fellowship with food.

And we are also planning church cleanups and a bowling fundraiser. We'll keep you in the loop.
Because of generous donations and funds from Pasta Night, O'Boyle Council just ordered $2,400-worth of coats for Coats for Kids. Look for photos of the coats being given away laer this month!
This past Saturday the council raised $519 for the poor box and Coats for Kids at the St Dominic's Pasta Supper. Good times were had by all and everyone ate well.
Last year the Knights kicked off a wild dream of raising funds to buy Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center an ultrasound machine. The goal was reached in 90 days. This year we were honored at the 2018 gala for our service to save lives.
Twenty-four years, twenty-four Star Council Awards for service and growth!
"Today, the Knights of Columbus is providentially positioned to play a key role in the new alliance between the Church and the family called for by Pope Francis … What is necessary now is our greater involvement in the renewal of parish and family life."
