Keeping the Faith

We are asking all Catholics in Stephenson County to join together with us, The Knights of Columbus of Stephenson County, on Facebook. Only through unification can all Catholic men, women and children join together to build and strengthen our church and beliefs.
Joining with us provides a platform where you can see how we are impacting our community at each council, each church and school. We are asking you to help make our Catholic Family strong and it only takes two minutes to like and follow us on The Knights of Columbus of Stephenson County Facebook page.
We are inviting you as Catholics to post what you do for volunteering: births, to baptisms, and marriages, from church and school events to information which impacts Catholics in our community. Our strength comes from our God, our Church, our Catholic families, our Catholic community, and sharing what we do, as Catholics in action.

Si quiero preparar de verdad mi interior para la venida de Jesús no debo eludir esta pregunta. Sólo si estoy dispuesto a dar una respuesta adecuada estaré en condiciones de que el Evangelio sea de verdad una Buena Noticia. Continue reading
