A Novena of Grace and Solidarity

God our Father, as St. Francis Xavier and countless of your missionaries traveled to the ends of the earth, impelled by the love of Jesus Christ, give me the grace to rely entirely on you, confident in the knowledge that you raise up the humble and the lowly. May I be united with your saints in offering you my humble tribute of thanksgiving and praise. I implore you to grant me, through your mercy, the blessing of living and dying in a state of grace. I also ask this same blessing for all those throughout the world who suffer persecution because of their faith in you. O God, you were pleased to gather to your Church the peoples of the world by the preaching and miracles of all your saints; mercifully grant that I may imitate their virtues and so bear witness to the Gospel of your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

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.
