    First Holy Communion for our children and

    our biggest event, our May 4th Corporate

    Walter Winkle, Jr. and State Treasurer,

    Christopher Kolomjec, Sr and their wives

    enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, socialization

    and hospitality of the St. Pius X and St.

    Martin de Porres family. The evening was

    topped off with a wonderful meal catered by

    The Villa Restaurant in Eastpointe. Thank

    you to all who attended and I was sorry to not

    see those who did sign up and were unable to

    This weekend, we honor …..

    The Pope Pius X Knights of Columbus Council 3848 celebrate this month their 65th anniversary of Unity, Fraternity and Charity. As Chaplain of this local council, I congratulate and thank you brother Knights for your presence in our parish community. There are representatives from our District and from the State. As well as our current Grand Knight, Kevin Labudde and Past Grand Knight Jerome Kunert.

    The following history of the Council was prepared by Past Grand Knight Jerome Kunert on December 12th, 2016. St. Pius X Council #3848 was brought into existence in the mid 1950’s largely through the efforts of two individuals; Brother Knight Joe DeMuch and Father Frank Walsh, then-Pastor of St. Anne Parish. These two men, along with District Deputy Edwin Theut, a Warren businessman, were the driving force behind the formation of our Council. Joe and Father Walsh were men of vision and ambition. They had the foresight to realize that the City of Warren would be expanding enormously over the next ten to twenty years, and that there would be a need for more than one council in this area. Their charter was received on May 9, 1954 with a charter class numbering 60 men. As fate would have it, while Joe DeMuch was on Mackinac Island attending the annual K of C State Convention, the building which housed the council was completely demolished by fire, leaving the newly-elected Grand Knight with the formidable task of rebuilding and holding together its membership. Through the efforts of many men, they were able to build the K of C Hall which was dedicated in 1958. The Knights of Columbus are justifiably proud of the many civic, social, fraternal and religious activities which their council has sponsored over the past years. The Council declined over the years and was suppressed in 2010. In January of 2014 a group of men from St. Martin de Porres Parish in Warren met with District Deputy Harry Deneweth about restarting the council as a parish council at St. Martin de Porres. Most board positions were filled that night and the first business meeting was held on March 13, 2014 in the parish hall. I arrived three months later and was asked to become their Chaplain. This Council continues to be of service to me and to St. Martin de Porres Church.

    WE ASKED ABOUT THE ROSARY 6/28/2019 By Andrew Butler Every member of the Knights of Columbus is called on to carry a rosary. So we posted this photo from Council 12259 to our Twitter and Instagram: In the post we asked, “Are you carrying a rosary right now?” skert6481 “Right front pocket, my sword against evil. K.O.C. Council 12834 And Knights immediately came out in full force to share their devotion in the comments section. A couple of people have K of C rosaries that have been passed down for generations:

    There were some very inspiring stories in the Instagram comments, like this one:

    The Rosary Program is one of the Knights of Columbus’s signature programs. By encouraging devotion to Mary, the patroness of the Knights of Columbus, members emphasize the importance of prayer in their parishes, communities and families. www.kofc.org/news

    All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles: Charity – Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.
