Knights of Columbus
To inform Catholics about important issues and raise awareness of the Knights of Columbus and its work, Spirit of Christ Council 12979 in Arvada, Colo. donated Columbia magazine subscriptions to the libraries of local Catholic high schools, colleges and student centers. Each month, the council also collects back issues of Columbia from members and places them in church lobbies and public libraries. A printed label covers the donor’s address and invites eligible men to join the Knights.
With the permission of your church’s office, find a place where you can put the back issues of your Catholic magazines and newspapers for others to pick up. Make sure the local public or college library periodical section subscribes to at least one good Catholic newspaper or magazine. Where possible, put good material in the library’s free magazines racks.
The recycling element of this project works well with the Knights of Columbus and any other group where members all receive the same monthly magazine. Both writers and publishers will appreciate the modest boost in circulation!
Send them to soldiers on active duty.
My extended family (Catholic and Orthodox) have been leaving copies of church magazines at our doctor’s and dentist’s offices for a long time. We cut off our names and addresses of course. I was in my doctor’s office waiting room recently and I found a magazine that I left there 2 years ago!
Great idea, thank you.
You know the difference between a sadist and a dentist?
Dentist has older magazines. /seinfeld
That’s a good idea, and I’m not even sure the public library has them. —Max, your fellow Knight, council 2406
Just have to say to everyone: our council begins and ends not only with prayer but with everyone singing God Bless America at every meeting. Love my council!
That's a Church that needs to be bulldozed and started over.
That’s my home parish. It has gotten a *lot* better in the past decade, and the KofC council there is one of the bright lights. If I hadn’t stuck around, a project like this wouldn’t have gotten off the ground there.
They are a great recruiting tool. I had out my old issues with great effect.
