Knights of St Columba: June 2018

A packed agenda for June

The feast of our patron, St Columba, is just one of the dates circled in the diary in a busy-looking month ahead for the Order.

The most notable event in June is the National Biennial Memorial Mass for deceased members, which will take place at 3pm on Saturday 16th at the Metropolitan Cathedral, where KSC members, their families and friends from across the country will gather to participate in this most solemn occasion.

Earlier, on 10 June, there will be the Annual Mass to celebrate the feast day of St Columba – to be celebrated, fittingly, at St Columba's parish church in Huyton. The Wirral Knights will be marking the feast on 9 June with an 11am Mass at the Columba Chapel in the cathedral, where the memorial books of our deceased members are kept.

The Knights will also be out in force at Liverpool Hope University from 22–24 June to support the Northern Catholic Conference.

• We welcomed three new members to the Order on Sunday 29 April with the installation ceremony for Chaldrine Ekobe, Christopher Hunt and Terence McGough during Mass at St Oswald's, Old Swan. We extend a very warm welcome to them, and thank Father Mark Beattie for saying the Mass in the historic surroundings of the beautiful St Oswald's parish church.
