NEWS - Rev James Kolling Passed Away March 25 (Posted 03/25)

It is with a very heavy heart that we report that Rev James Kolling, beloved former pastor of Church of the Visitation, 4th Degree and Council 3744 Knight, and very dear friend of Paul Condran PGK, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early morning hours of March 25.

Paul Condran respectfully wrote "He went to see our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as God called his servant home. Fr Kolling will be missed by many, none more than his Knights.  He is no longer in pain and is no longer suffering. He is in the Divine sunshine of God in Heaven."

Funeral services for Rev Kolling were held at St Timothy Church in West Los Angeles, Mon April 3 at 10 am.

NEWS - March Meeting Features Seminarian Presentation (Posted 03/15)

The monthly member meeting was held on Tue Mar 14 at the Council Hall with the busy schedule of Lent activities discussed. 

The social gathering before the meeting featured a traditional "St Patrick's Day"-worthy corn beef dinner deliciously prepared by Lecturer Paul Callinan.

A highlight of the meeting was the presentation of a vocation support check by Grand Knight Alex Flores to this year's Council sponsored seminarian Braxton Cordova.

Braxton is a junior at Cal Sate Dominguez Hills who resides at Juan Diego House.  Braxton is currently in the discernment process advancing towards his seminary studies.  At the meeting, he provided members an update on his progress and thanked the Council for supporting him again this year.

Please keep Braxton and all our local seminarians in your prayers as they make the journey to priesthood.

CALL OUT - St Margaret's Center Volunteers Needed (Posted 07/26)

Council 3744 has long supported St Margaret's Center in Lennox with a regular crew of Brother Knights doing food pickups each week at local Ralphs, Vons, Food4Less and Target stores as well as helping with sorting donations, shelf stocking and food distribution to clients during the regular Mon/Wed/Fri pantry client servicing hours.

A new large store has offered us their food donations and we are in great need of a few more volunteers to help with pickups, sorting and stocking these donations. 

Won't you consider joining the fun crew of Brother Knights and others in service to our local poor?  As little as 4 hours a week can make a huge difference for local families in need.

While St Margaret's project chairman Chip Mallek is on the mend, please feel free to contact Dan Koskovich at dkoskovich@gmail.com or 310-968-0516 for more info or to volunteer to help!
