    Washington, D.C. - Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq gathered with Carl Anderson, CEO of the Knights of Columbus and others at the National Press Club in D.C. Tuesday to talk about the needs and current state of Christians trying to rebuild in Iraq in the wake of ISIS.Archbishop Warda thanked the Trump administration for Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks in October, promising to protect the Christians in the Middle East and redirect U.S. aid funds directly to the persecuted communities rather than through the United Nations.“It makes an important shift because it showed that the American government considers the...

    WASHINGTON -- On Friday, the BBC enlisted me to defend my support of Donald Trump for president. Though the ensuing television interview was conducted in English, I found it incomprehensible. I was speaking in my native tongue to two apparently intelligent English-speaking women, yet their responses to my clear, if amused, rejoinders amounted to gibberish. They sought to understand Trump's victory but did not have the most elementary understanding of the American democratic process or any grasp of rational thought. I detected no whiff of alcohol on their breath or any other sign of inebriation. They showed no sign of...

    The Knights of Columbus do a lot of good work in the United States, from pro-life and pro-family activities, to charitable endeavors, to providing honor guards for traditional Latin Masses. In fact, there are dozens of councils attached to the TLM. So, it is sad to see the organization's convention this week in Saint Louis, Missouri, turn into a fiasco due to a major change to be imposed on fourth degree Knights, who comprise the top fifth of membership. The Supreme Knight, Carl A. Anderson, announced: "The Board of Directors has decided that the time is right for a modernization...

  • Vanity: Knights of Columbus -Who are they? What are the? Comments please!

    04/21/2017 9:33:56 AM PDT · by hillarynot · 85 replies
    I'm giving a talk in early June to a group on the topic of the Knights of Columbus, Who are they? What are they? What have they done for our community in the past; what can they do for our community in the future? What are public perceptions of the Knights of Columbus? I'll also cover some very interesting history of the local Council which has been around for nearly 120 years. I suspect there are members of the Knights of Columbus who don't really know the answers to these questions. I'm interested in what non-members of the public think,...

    Kids in Maplewood, N.J., were recently disappointed, then excited again, to learn that their school’s Halloween festivities had been cancelled and then reinstated. Maplewood’s Seth Boyden Elementary School has traditionally hosted spooky activities on or around October 31 but has found that more and more parents are choosing to opt their children out on account of the holiday’s pagan origins. “We have a very diverse school district,” district spokeswoman Suzanne Turner said. “Every year, we have students who opt out of the [Halloween celebration] and the principal felt that number was significant enough,” to cancel this year’s festivities. At least...

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. — As Christians continue to face unprecedented persecution — especially in the Middle East — the Knights of Columbus have announced a new campaign to send humanitarian aid and raise awareness about their plight. “Pope Francis has urged the international community to take action to help Christians in the Middle East, and as an organization that has long supported victims of religious persecution, the Knights of Columbus is responding by asking our own members, and the public at large, to help us save the lives of people who are being persecuted simply because of their Christian faith,”...

    I received this e-mail from our Faithful Navigator this morning. Dear Knights and friends of the Knights of Columbus, It was recently announced that Gov. Terry McAuliffe was selected as the Grand Marshall for this year's Norfolk St. Patrick's Day Parade (March 14th) which is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council 3548. http://norfolkparade.com This was against the directive of Holy Trinity Pastor, Fr. Dan Beeman. Please read Fr. Beeman's letter below. It appears that the KofC State Deputy, Steve Burnley, first agreed to immediately replace Terry McAuliffe, but later he reversed his decision. It is totally unacceptable that Terry...

    A Roman Catholic parish priest at an elite French ski resort has been stripped of his Church functions for refusing to renounce Freemasonry. Father Pascal Vesin was ordered by his bishop to cease his work in the Alpine resort of Megeve, the parish said. Bishop Yves Boivineau had warned Fr Vesin about his "active membership" of the Grand Orient de France lodge. Freemasonry has been condemned as anti-Christian and anti-clerical by various popes through history. Bishop Boivineau ordered the priest to cease his functions "at Rome's request", the parish said. In March, the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the...

This afternoon featured live programming from the 130th Supreme Convention of the Catholic fraternal and charitable organization the Knights of Columbus from Anaheim, California.

At the opening session of the convention the Knights announced they had letters of greeting from leaders of several of the nations with large representations at the meeting. The first one read was...

    The film shows a burning crucifix, gun-toting priests and the torture of a young boy. And the Roman Catholic hierarchy is loving it. The film, For Greater Glory, hits theaters on June 1 and tells a little known chapter of Mexican history the Cristero War of 1926 to 1929, which pitted an army of devout Catholic rebels (led in the movie by Andy Garcia) against the government of Mexican President Plutarco Calles (played by Ruben Blades). For Catholics enraged by the Obama administrations proposed contraception mandate, the film about the Mexican churchs fight in 1920s is a heartening and...
