Knights of Columbus

 

 

 

On March 29, 1882, the Connecticut state legislature officially chartered the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal benefit society founded by Father Michael J. McGivney with a group of parishioners in the basement of St. Mary's Church in New Haven. Still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity 125 years later, the Knights of Columbus has grown to the largest lay Catholic organization in the world with more than 1.7 million members.

Throughout its history, the Knights of Columbus has been an effective advocate and defender of civil and religious rights for all. The organization has also contributed billions of dollars and millions of hours of volunteer service to charity.

'Tis the season for giving

By Angie Landsverk

Dec. 21, 2011 

 

 

...In the Weyauwega-Fremont School District, more than 400 people received gifts this year through the Christmas Giving Tree.

Don Planz is among those who volunteer for it, and he said more than half of this year's recipients are children.

The families picked up their gifts on Dec. 17 at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Weyauwega.

Children received clothing and toys. Families also received non-perishable food items, potatoes, boneless hams and food vouchers to be redeemed at KD's IGA in Weyauwega.

Like Waupaca's Miracle Tree, Christmas trees were set up at various locations, allowing people to choose the age of achild or adult that it wanted to give a gift to.

In about its fifth year, the Weyauwega-Fremont Christmas Giving Tree accepts donations throughout the year at First National Bank in Weyauwega.

Planz said they work closely with the Weymont Food Pantry to identify families in need. The number of families that received gifts this year was about the same as last year, he said.

"I thank everybody that's contributed - not only the donations but the workers. We couldn't do it without all the help we get," Planz said.
