Knights of Columbus to Benefit Seminarians

Leave a comment

The Knights of Columbus are spearheading a fund drive to benefit the seminarians for the dioceses of Illinois. Various council members are selling tickets that will give out $20,000 in cash awards.

1st prize: $10,000
2nd prize: $2,500
3rd-6th prize: $1,000 each
7th-10th prize: $500 each
11-15th Prize $200 each
16-20th Prize $100 each

It is a state wide event. All the monies will go to the State Council for distribution to all the prize winners. The drawing ends November 24. The drawing is December 2, 2017.

The proceeds go directly to the seminarians to help defer costs and for some extra money to celebrate their birthdays and such.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
