Good Friday

On Good Friday, through the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion and Death, we are invited to remember Christ’s sufferings. The day commemorates Christ’s conquering of death through his passion and resurrection, thereby opening the gates of heaven for each of us.

Unfortunately, attendance at the Good Friday Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion and Death has been in decline in many parts of our country.

In our busy lives, it is all too easy to look away from the harsh reality that Christ bore on the Cross for us. However, our faith and that of our families and parishes are strengthened when we take the time to attend the Good Friday liturgy.

As Archbishop Fulton Sheen put it: “Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.”

As we enter the Lenten season, every council is asked to encourage brother Knights and their families to attend the Good Friday liturgy in their parish on March 30. Let your parishes know of the liturgy’s importance and how its commemoration can strengthen each family as a domestic church.

Prayer Before a Crucifix

Behold, O good and sweetest Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true repentance for my sins and a most firm purpose of amendment: whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I consider within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds, having before my eyes that which David, the prophet, long ago spoke in Thy own person concerning Thee, my Jesus, They have pierced my hands and my feet; They have numbered all my bones.

Pope Benedict XVI’s Meditation on Christ’s Suffering Heart

In the heart of the Redeemer we adore God’s Love of humanity, his will of universal Salvation, his infinite mercy.

Worship of the Sacred Heart of Christ means, therefore, Worship of that heart which, after having Loved us to the end, was pierced by the spear, And from the Cross on high, shed blood and Water, inexhaustible source of new life.



The Knights of Columbus has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company for the fourth consecutive year. This recognition underscores the organization’s commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices. K of C, known also for its extensive charitable activities, was one of only two life insurance companies to earn the designation for 2017.

 Father Hilary George Adam Meny

 January 21, 1915 - October 7, 2016

     On October 7, 2016, Father Hilary George Adam Meny, beloved uncle, great-uncle, great-great uncle, and pastor, was gently lifted up to Heaven, after a wonderful Life of 101+ years here on earth.
    Born on January 21, 1915, to Bernard and Catherine (Emmert) Meny, Hilary grew up in Haubstadt, Indiana. After attending grade school at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School, Hilary attended St. Meinrad Seminary. On May 14, 1940, he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by the Most Reverend Joseph E. Ritter, and celebrated his First Mass at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on May 19, 1940
     Fr. Meny’s first priestly assignment took him to St. Philip Neri Parish Indianapolis, where he served as a junior assistant until 1947. After this, Fr. Meny served at St. Joe Hill Parish in Clark County and at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Bedford.
     In 1949, Fr. Meny was named pastor of St. Patrick’s Church in Madison, Indiana, where he lovingly served for over 40 years. While pastor at St. Patrick’s, Fr. Meny was instrumental in establishing Shawe Memorial Catholic High School, where he served as superintendant and Pope John XXIII Catholic Grade School. During his tenure at St. Patrick’s, he also served the parish of the Most Sorrowful Mother of God Church in Vevay, Indiana.
