Councils Donate Hundreds of  “Coats for Kids” to Interfaith Outreach

On an unseasonably warm day on Monday October 18th, knights from the Good Samaritan Council along with the four other councils in KC District 53 (Wayzata #3758, Loretto #9601, Long Lake #12293, Golden Valley #13506) gathered at Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners  and donated over $5,000 worth of coats – 216 brand new coats acquired through the Knights of Columbus “Coats for Kids” program and several other “like new” coats from St Thomas the Apostle parish, a parish associated with the Loretto Council. 

Understanding the difficulty of getting coats into the hands of the kids in the suburbs that need them, the councils partnered with Interfaith Outreach, an organization that’s been serving the critical needs of people in the western suburbs for over 40 years. Kevin Ward, Interfaith’s Executive Director, says “While we often hear about people in urban cities struggling with poverty, the invisible struggles of people living in our local western suburbs is not as well understood.”

The Good Samaritan Council Starts a New Tradition!

The Good Samaritan Council is partnering with the West Suburban Grief Coalition (WSGC) and the Holy Name of Jesus Seniors and Soul Sisters to sponsor a new tradition at Holy Name, the recitation of the Rosary before First Friday Masses.  We will begin this new tradition on May 7th when we lead the recitation of the Rosary before the 8:00 AM Mass. 

Knights and Ladies!  We’re counting on you to lead the Rosary!
