The campaign is based on the pilgrimage of an icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa which has already traveled over 40 thousand miles, traversed 24 countries, visited 75 cathedrals and 60 Orthodox churches in over 400 cities; today it was in Wellington Fl at the Planned Parent facility. Assembly 2709 helped carry in the icon and posted an Honor Guard for it.

Color Corp members from two Assembly's had the privilege to render honors to a group of Honor Flight veterans returning from their Washington. D.C day trip. Over and above having Brothers on the flight and all who turned out in regular dress, I would like to recognize a special Sir Knight Steve Batthany. Even with his health and mobility issues, his dressing out in tux and attending with his wife is a source of inspiration to us all.
We, the Knights of Columbus family of St. Therese de Lisieux Council 12873 Wellington, FL, formed in March 2000 out of the inspiration and love of Father Michael J. McGivney, are a welcoming, Eucharist-centered, and culturally diverse Order of Catholic gentlemen. Together, with the involvement of our families, we strive to exemplify our Order’s principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. As stewards of our Order’s legacy, we endeavor to answer His call in solidarity with the priesthood, respecting life, defending of our faith and family and serving our fellow man.
