Protecting God’s Children

All of the clergy, office staff, and every volunteer is required to attend a Virtus—Protecting God’s Children training session, an archdiocese sponsored program which teaches an awareness of those persons and situations which could endanger our children. The state also requires volunteers to submit a yearly CORI form. If you have already taken the VIRTUS class, you do not need to take it again; however, it is mandatory for all new volunteers.

Knights of Columbus

In 1882, a young priest named Michael McGivney gathered a small group of Catholic layman together in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, CT. That group formed a fraternal society to provide for its members and their families, while offering fellowship among Catholic men. That group became known as the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus’ – Seville Council here at St. Edith Stein started in 1894, 12 years after Father McGivney founded the Knights.

From these humble origins, the Knights of Columbus has grown into a fraternal order with more than 1.7 million members located in over 13,000 councils throughout the world. Each year, members of our organization donate millions of volunteer hours and millions of dollars to charitable and Church causes.  Besides performing good works, the Knights of Columbus provides a number of fraternal benefit programs to eligible members and their families.

Every Knights of Columbus council provides a wide variety of opportunities, projects and activities for members and their families to get involved in. We know time is one of the most valuable commodities in life and the amount of leisure and free time for the average person has decreased in recent years. Many outside influences are vying for the precious time that we all have.

However, if you believe in the importance of investing your time in friendship, the Church and helping others, we believe that the Knights of Columbus may be for you. The Knights is an organization of Catholic men and their families that derive a great sense of satisfaction from being able to develop lasting friendships with each other, while helping the less fortunate.

We would like to urge all men in this parish to consider joining the Knights of Columbus. And those who do belong to the Knights are encouraged to help a friend and his family, discover the opportunities available in the Knights.

Seville Council 93 for the Brockton Tri-Parishes meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at Christ the King Parish.
