KnightLine – August 2018 Issue

Paul, Apostle of Christ

The Knights of Columbus is proud to invite you to support the nationwide theatrical release of Paul, Apostle of Christ, March 23, 2018.

Produced by Catholic ministry ODB Films and starring acclaimed actors Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner, this movie dynamically and truthfully illustrates the beginnings of Christian persecution under the Roman Empire.

St. Paul’s story is one of conversion, forgiveness and perseverance in the face of extreme intolerance, not unlike that faced by many Christians today. This dramatic retelling of his life can move the hearts of both believers and nonbelievers.

The film, dedicated to the persecuted Christians of today, is an opportunity to spread awareness of their plight among your friends, family and community.

St. Jean de Brebeuf Stained Glass Opus

Knights of Columbus Maple Council’s monetary contribution played a big part in the realization of this wonderful piece of art.
“Two Grade 12 students, in conjunction with our Department Head of Religion, Ms. Angela Saggese created a beautiful stained glass representation of the Risen Christ that will be mounted on the 3rd floor of our school.  Bruno Stillo, a 77 year old master stained glass artist donated his time to create the beautiful stained glass rendition.  He spent over 6 months working on this piece and we are proud to add this beautiful large spiritual art piece of the Risen Christ to the St. Jean de Brebeuf CHS school community.  It is a testament to our catholic school vision and mission to “love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.””

 Our Council’s participation was duly recognized during the dedication and blessing ceremony on Tuesday, December 13/16.

Turkey Bowl for Charity

A football rivalry between two local Catholic High School teams, the Wolverines of Belen Jesuit Preparatory School and the Spartans of Monsignor Edward Pace High School, turns points scored on the football field into turkeys in the homes of poor families on Thanksgiving. The competitors participating in “Turkey Bowl 2016,” an annual charity event sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, Coral Gables Council 3274, helps fund the council’s Thanksgiving Food Drive for needy families. After the game, the Knights of Columbus will present the winning team with the game’s traveling trophy, a silver turkey platter engraved with the helmet designs of both teams. “Turkey Bowl 2016” charitable football competition is the continuation of a tradition started in 2007 by Knights of Columbus Coral Gables Council members who are alumni of the competing schools.
