The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882. There are over 15,000 councils and 1.9 million members throughout the world. Membership is limited to practicing Catholic men aged 18 or older.
We promote the core principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism through our local council, which has a strong relationship with St. Matthias Catholic Church in Crown Point, Indiana. Our meetings are held monthly at St. Matthias Parish.
I am sorry to inform you that the tickets to the Sunday May 23rd Gary Rail Cats game have not been mailed to me. Because I will be travelling for I will not be home to accept tickets or distribute them. So it is impossible for me to make them available to you for pick up. I was told that they could make the tickets available at will call but I declined that offer because I did not want anyone to travel to Gary only to find that our allotted tickets were all claimed. They agreed to allow me to reschedule for another night to be determined.

PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
Glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work in a spirit of penance for the expiation of my many sins; to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my inclinations; to work with gratitude and joy, considering it an honor to employ and develop, by means of labor, the gifts received from God; to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever recoiling before weariness or difficulties; to work, above all, with purity of intention, and with detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account which I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary, all after your example, O Patriarch Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.
PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
