SAVE THE DATE for K of C Memorial Mass: Aurora Council 2111 is having the annual Knights of Columbus Memorial Mass at St. Mary's church this year on Tuesday November 15th at 6:30 pm for all deceased Knights.


The Aurora K of C Council has decided to change our efforts this year in regard to the Christmas Billboard, in place of this we are going to sell  2" x 4" yard signs pictured in the attachment, the purpose of this e-mail is to invite your councils to join us in selling these posters, they sell for $40; they cost us $25 and the $15 will go toward the Youth trip to Rome and Fatima and Youth Conference in Lisbon. Of course, additional donations will be welcomed also.  These signs come with two mounting wires and should last for many years as they will only be out in the weather for the month of December.

Join Our Ministry: Breaking Bread - Saturday Mornings ~ 8am - 9am @St. Lawrence, Breaking Bread is our free community breakfast which we celebrate and enjoy every Saturday morning from 8-9 a.m. We usually have around 15 guests and 10 or so servers and we gather in the lower level of the church. We pray and eat together. We have conversations and laugh and cry together. It is short but very, very sweet. It soothes the soul and starts the weekend off with giving and sharing. Would you like to be part of this? We are in need of a few more servers and always welcome anyone who wants to attend, whether you cook and bring food or just come for community and a meal! Please contact Eileen Keller (812-655-3304 or for more information or to volunteer. If you would rather just show up to see what it is like, that is a great way to get started!​

Fr. Meyer joined Marc Tuttle and Kent Blandford on Indy Catholic Radio for a look at the ever changing role of men in parish and family life in anticipation of the E6 Catholic Men's Conference. Here is a link to the podcast.​​​
