Prayer, Dinner, & Fundraiser

Save the Persecuted Christian

Friday, June 15th

St. Bernard Church

Pope Francis has said ”We must not resign ourselves to thinking of the Middle East without Christians”.

With the help of The Ladies Guild, the Rockville Knights of Columbus Council 4122 (St. Bernard and St. Joseph Knights) is sponsoring this event. All proceeds will go to rebuild the displaced Christian communities destroyed by ISIS. The prayer is at 5:30pm in St. Bernard Church. Dinner will follow at 6:00pm in the St. Bernard Church Hall. The cost is $20 per person. The dinner will include a presentation by a guest speaker on the plight of the Iraqi Christians.

Dinner tickets can be purchased from the Knights at St. Bernard Church after Mass. Or you can enclose a check in an envelope marked Knights and place it in the offering basket. Please make the check out to Knights of Columbus Council 4122.

To make a tax-deductible donation in any amount, please make out your check to Knights of Columbus Charities. In the memo section of your check please note ‘Christians At Risk’. Mail it to:  Knights of Columbus c/o St. Bernard Church, 25 St. Bernard Terrace, Rockville, CT 06066, or drop your check in the offering basket during Mass in an envelope marked Knights.

For 2000 years, despite the incredible hardships, these Iraqi Christians have kept their faith in Christ alive. Let us show our faithfulness to those who remain in Christ. God bless you.
