From Knights of Columbus Supreme Council:
As America prepares to welcome a new president, the Knights of Columbus is urging its members and other Catholics to pray the Novena for National Unity fromThursday, Jan. 12, through Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20. The prayer invokes the maternal intercession of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the United States.
In announcing the days of prayer, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson noted:
Thank you for being part of the “Great 799.” We are a vibrant, strong Council, and we always meet our responsibilities to the Order. As you know, each Member is responsible for payment of dues on a calendar year basis. The dues for 2017 are “due” by December 31, 2016. If you haven’t already paid your Council dues for 2017, please pay them as soon as possible. To make it easier for you, we have an option for online payment. The online payment form is available at the following URL:
Alternatively, you can pay your dues by mail or in person to our new Financial Secretary, James Hale:

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. It is a time for hope. We hope all are Merry, we hope for Happy Holidays, we hope to give and receive nice gifts that show someone we know cares. We open doors for others that at other times of the year we might just rush though. Many in our Knights Of Columbus community are hoping you’ll show you care and open your hearts and give them the gift of life at our Christmas blood drive on Dec 17th from 8:30 – 12:30 at KC 799.
Giving 30 minutes of your holiday season can give a child a full life and tremendous joy to the anguished parents. 30 minutes can save the life of your neighbors’ mom or dad. It’s that wonderful time between Thanksgiving and the spirit of Christmas-giving.
Please click or copy and paste the link below and sign up early and give the most precious gift of all. Life. Those who sign up early and then donate will be entered into a drawing for a beautiful hand finished 8 x 10 table top picture frame just in time for that special Christmas photo.
Please call Tim King at 214-536-0288 with any questions.
Giving blood is easy – It starts with your heart ♥

Here is a blurb with information about the Fish Fry. Send this to your friends to give them the low-down:
Take part in a unique Catholic tradition and spend some time with family and friends! Every Friday during Lent, the Knights of Columbus Council 799 will host a Fish Fry at the KayCee Hall (located at 10110 Shoreview Road, Dallas, TX 75238). The all-you-can-eat buffet, including fried fish, French fries, hush puppies and cole slaw, will be served from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at $12 per adult and $6 for children (12 and under). And if you’re too busy to sit down, we’ll provide drive-through service ($12/plate) from 6:00 p.m. to – 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome so come join the fun!
How can YOU help??
Come to the Fish Fry!
Your attendance is a huge help. Sure we need labor (see next section). But we also need customers. Come enjoy the Fish Fry with your family/friends. You can take pride knowing that when you pay for your Lenten meal, you are also supporting the KC Charity Fund.
Labor needed. Here are a few places you can volunteers:
Inside crew (lead by Michael Savage and Dave Kelly).
Setup: Each Friday afternoon we will set the tables and chairs (flipping the room from the morning event). Start time will vary each Friday.
Service: Volunteers can help keep the room clean, bussing tables, and clearing trash during the meal from 5:30pm to 8:00pm
Tear down: Each Friday night starting at 8pm, we will clean and reset the room. Many hands make light work!
Drive through (lead by Andy Ellard, Mark Hoops, and Jeff Becotte).
We’ll need about 10 men each Friday to run the drive through. A couple are needed to set the drive through starting at 5:00pm. Then around 5:30pm, we’ll get the drive through crew organized and ready to serve by 6:00pm.
Flag Crew (open)
Need 1-2 volunteers to take on the responsibility for posting and retiring the U.S. flag court along Shoreview. We also have banners and signs for the Fish Fry that will need to be displayed.
Please no outside food or beverages for this event.
