Knights of Columbus Awards

The Blessed Sacrament Knights of Columbus council recently held their Anniversary dinner at the parish social hall.  Knights from our council, Assumption, and St. Brigid enjoyed a potluck dinner of Ukrainian dishes.  During the dinner, presentations were made to honor the “Knight of the Year” and “Family of the Year”. 

We are proud to announce that this year’s recipients are:

Knight of the Year: Tom Peters. Tom has been a hard-working and reliable member of the council for many years.  Tom has been very involved in the “Wood for Warmth” program benefiting cancer patients and needy people who heat with wood.  He’s always there when we are cutting, splitting, and delivering the wood. You can also count on Tom to make the Knight’s soup suppers a success. 

Family of the Year: Duane and Wendy Shields. Duane is currently the Deputy Grand Knight.  He is “Mr. Two Soups”, always doubling down to make sure we have plenty for the Knight’s soup suppers.  Duane works with the firewood team and is there to help with any other projects the Knights have going, like putting up and taking down Christmas lights around the church.  For many years, he has helped organize the food for the “Christ Renews” event. Wendy is also very active in Blessed Sacrament as well with the Youth-to-Youth and Grief Recovery groups. 

Please join the Knights in congratulating Tom, Duane, and Wendy for their service in 2022!
