We are still looking for a new treasurer. It isn’t very demanding, you write 7-8 checks a year, take any receipts to the bank for deposit.  This pertains only to Council 934 funds not the Nor-Rose Lodge money. If you would be interested in performing these duties, contact either GK Greg Thorpe, ph. (812) 599-9848  or, FS Jack Dagleish, ph. 812-493-4119,  they will be glad to explain the job.


Rest in Peace Tony Christiani and Phillip Hoffman who died this past month.

 End of Month meals

Facebook Mass

For those of you that are home-bound I would suggest that you use the computer ond go to Facebook at to watch the broadcast of the 10:00 AM Mass. We are grateful to David and Maryrose for providing the expertise and dedication of putting this service on the world wide web. We have visitors from all over the world watching. I even saw a comment from someone in the UAE, I think that is the United Arab Emirate in the Middle East.

It’s time for our Senior students to think about what they will do after H.S. graduation.  Our local council offers a scholarship for 1 student from each high school in the Madison-Hanover area. Contact your counselor about applying for these. In addition, the council offers a scholarship for the Outstanding Catholic Youth of the area. 


An eligible candidate for these scholarships is a K of C member in good standing, a child of the member or of deceased member who was in good standing. Scholarship candidates should be entering the freshman year in an approved Catholic college in the United States and its territories as a fulltime student in a bachelor’s degree program.


A select number of undergraduate scholarships are administered by the Catholic University of America, on behalf of the Knights of Columbus. There are also fellowships available to help prepare CUA graduates to teach at the university level. Please contact Catholic University of America for Undergraduate and Graduate applications.


Bishop Charles P. Greco Graduate Fellowships assist U.S. students pursuing a master’s degree designed for teachers of people with intellectual disabilities. Applicants must be a member in good standing or his wife or child attending a Catholic college/university. This also applies to the widows and children of deceased members who were in good standing.


The Francis P. Matthews and John E. Swift Educational Trust Scholarships are available to children of members in good standing who are killed or permanently disabled, by hostile action, while serving in the armed forces in a combat zone identified as eligible by the Knights of Columbus Board of Directors; as well as the children of fulltime firefighters and law enforcement officers, who while in the lawful performance of their duties, died as a result of criminal violence directed at them. In either event, applications must be filed within two years of the date of death or disability.


Each year, the Knights of Columbus offers Scholarships to seminarians studying at major seminaries. Applicants will attain the appropriate ecclesiastical approval, will have been accepted at a major seminary, and will be studying for an (arch)diocese or religious institute in the United States or Canada.
