Santa Claus Parade

The MANITOBA Knights Christmas Parade Organizers and Participants did an amazing job getting our message to "Keep Christ in Christmas" out there. We truly showed our pride in being Catholic Christians. Participants and over 50,000 spectators along the Parade Route braved the minus -13° C weather, with 100's of thousands watching on local Television Channels. We were a hit with the crowds, especially with all the live Christmas Songs being performed.

Wheelchairs Needed In
Ukraine NOW!

In the recent “Knightline” article (October 18), Oleg Vorobyev, a brother Knight from Ukraine was highlighted. This brother knight was killed in battle on May 30, 2022. As part of the Manitoba degree team, we visited an army hospital in Ukraine to identify their need for wheelchairs. It was so sad to see so many young men who were seriously injured and in pain.

During our degree work in Ukraine, many of those initiated were young men. They were so happy to become members of the Knights of Columbus. What was truly amazing was their overwhelming love for their country - truly patriotic.

As this war drags on, the need for wheelchairs increases. I appeal to each council and to each member to consider a donation to the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation for wheelchairs to Ukraine. Remember each and every donation will help someone in need.

Mar. 11
MB State Basketball Free Throw Competition

As in the past, I would again like to remind everyone of the importance of this annual event to our councils and districts, our schools, and communities and most importantly, to our youth.

It provides us all with a way to say thank you and to show our commitment to our youth through a fun event.

Not only is this a Manitoba event but I would like to remind everyone that, although it starts in our local Councils, it ends up being an International Basketball Free Throw event and has been happening since 1972. The Manitoba State Competition is scheduled for March 11, 2023 at Holy Cross School Gym. Councils and Districts should be running their competitions in January of February.
