St Thomas More Knights of Columbus Council #17996 invites all men regardless of membership status to join us in a ONE-DAY ADVENT JOURNEY/SACRIFICE.  

Years ago, the Knights of Columbus produced a 12-episode video series. Each episode runs approximately 10-12 minutes and focuses on a different aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity, features interviews with well-known Catholic commentators, and follows the personal story of a man whose life illuminates each theme. This is a call for all men and young men to join us in a one-day retreat, our ADVENT SACRIFICE.  By joining together in brotherhood, men receive the support they need to grow in virtue and take action to serve Christ and others. We hope that this series, helps you and all of us to step Into the Breach and become stronger Catholic men. This retreat will be facilitated by STM Council Grand Knight Tom Melton. Pastries, coffee, and juice will be served in the morning. Lunch served halfway through the retreat, you will be well-fed and will not go thirsty (beverages/snacks will be available all day).  

Donation: $15 per person would be greatly appreciated. RSVP to Tom, please. We don’t want to waste money and need to have a solid number to purchase the appropriate amount of food and beverages.

Questions call GK Tom at 702-510-5481.

This a good reminder of reasons to get involved.
