Saint Juan Diego KC Council – Update
St Juan Diego Knights of Columbus Council at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our new council continues to expand in numbers, adding new Knights to the council. On Monday, September 19, 2016, Bill Jaekel, District Deputy, presented Doug Reinhart, Grand Knight Saint Juan Diego Council 16444, with a check recognizing Doug’s efforts recruiting new members and for achieving 150% of the Council’s membership quota for 2016-2017.
The Saint Juan Diego KC Council has the mission of being a support to the Shrine in a variety of different ways and methods as directed by the Shrine’s Executive Director.
An example of how members of the Saint Juan Diego KC Council will carry out its mission is:
- This Thursday, September 22nd, the International Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be at the Shrine. The council will participate with the presentation of Our Lady of Fatima.
The Shrine, with the support of the Council of the Knights of Columbus, are two powerful Catholic entities brought together in a common dedication to serving the Catholic/Christian pilgrims who journey to this holy place.
