RETIRING WORN AMERICAN FLAGS

St. Theodore Guerin Council 14057 will accept your an old, worn, or damaged American flag. Flags are collected by the Knights and, in a periodic retirement ceremony, disposed of in a dignified and respectful manner. Flags may be left in the marked container in the SAVE room.


CROSBY CENTER SIGN SPONSORSHIPS

Sponsorships are available through the Knights of Columbus for St. Alexander's Crosby Parish Center. As a sponsor you will have the benefit of having your advertising sign appear on the wall of the Crosby Parish Center and will enjoy the exposure your sign will get at all the sports activities and the many parish social events held in the Crosby Center. Previous sponsors are being asked to renew for 2018. And there are opportunities for new sign sponsors as well. For sponsorship information contact Tom Stuchly at (708) 699-4444 or e-mail to tomstuchly@comcast.net.


BAPTISM ROSES

Parents of children baptized at St. Alexander will be receiving special gifts from the Knights of Columbus. To celebrate her child's Baptism, each mom will receive a beautiful glass rose symbolic of love and life. And, the dads will receive a rosary emblematic of the Knights' devotion to our Blessed Mother to encourage them to be a model of prayer for their children. Members of St. Theodore Guerin Council 14057 will be present at the Baptisms to give these gifts. (Knights are needed on an ongoing basis to present the Roses and Rosaries. Contact Jerry Ritz to volunteer!)
