Saturday, June 4 the Knights of Columbus Council #12465 of Kensington & Summerfield held a yard sale on the grounds of St. Mary’s Holy Family Parish. Here are a few photos of the bright shinny day!
Garth McKinnon posted 6 photos today to Facebook along with the following.
“Last time I was at big rally for life in Charlottetown, about 300 people showed up and the papers only reported 150.
This time I thought I would post some pictures ahead of the papers to prove the over 300 in attendance.
Once again they had a reporter talking extensively to the 5 or 6 pro choice counter protesters. Didn’t see them talking to any of ours. So don’t believe everything you read in the Island news. You won’t get the full picture (so to speak).”
The Our Lady of Fatima Council #824 of the Knights of Columbus hosted a celebration on May 13, 2017 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Our Blessed Mother Mary’s apparitions to three shepherd children in the town of Fatima, Portugal.
The celebration began with a public procession around the block of St. Dunstan’s Basilica lead by several altar servers and the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard.
A statue of Our Lady of Fatima was carried high on a decorated platform and more than a 100 parishioners followed behind singing, waving streamers and carrying blue and white balloons.
The group then processed into the Basilica where they prayed the rosary and celebrated mass with Fr John Molina.
A reception was then held in the lower level of the Basilica highlighted with cake and ice cream.
This celebration coincided with Pope Francis’ pilgrimage to Fatima where he canonized two of the three Portuguese children whose visions of the Virgin Mary 100 years ago marked one of the most important events of the 20th century Catholic Church. The third visionary died in 2005 at the age of 97. Her cause for sainthood has begun.
All Knights (wear your vests) and families are encourage to attend.
When: Sunday, May 28
Time: Gathering Point at St. Pius X Parish Parking Lot 2:20 PM
March to Provincial House, Hon. George Coles Building, on lawn facing Bowling alley.

Council #12465 of the Knights of Columbus announce our new annual Principle of Charity Scholarship! It is an award of $500.00 to a parishioner of either St. Mary’s Holy Family Parish in Kensington or St. James’ Parish in Summerfield who is attending post-secondary education of any type in the fall.
Since Charity is the first of the Knight’s Principles, we want to award a member of our parishes who exhibits this virtue in their lives. The application revolves around the volunteer and charity work that the applicants participate in. Application forms can be found at the back of both churches, with applications to be submitted to Fr. Jay no later than May 31st. The successful candidate will be contacted no later than June 15th.
God bless, and have a blessed week!

Fathers can learn from Joseph’s example
By Jason Godin
The Church celebrates the feast of St. Joseph the Worker on May 1. Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, foster father of Jesus, silent in word but not in action, Joseph produced a model legacy of masculine faith. The carpenter displayed prudence in judgment and action as well as presence for his spouse, his child, and his community.
