K of C Council 103
Habitat for Humanity

  Through the ongoing efforts of  local Knights,  our council  continues to exemplify the Knights' spirit of community volunteerism by supporting  local  Habitat for Humanity projects.

  We will be organizing another outing soon.  If  you would like to participate in a cause that serves both our Church and our Community, please do not hesitate to join in. 

  Don't feel you can't contribute to this noteworthy endeavor because you never or rarely participate in K of C functions, or because you're not a professional tradesman.  -   Your involvement is both welcomed and wanted!!   Your Brother Knights will make you comfortable in helping the Knights help others.

  Phone Grand Knight Jack
Laviolette at 464-6009 to answer this calling for your services and sign up for our next Habitat for Humanity work outing!

You'll always have something more valuable to give than money.

Brother Knights

Many Thanks to all from the Berkshires who participated in the Msgr. Eugene F. Marshall, Knights of Columbus Council #103 Meatball & Pasta Dinner Fundraiser on January 25, 2018 with guest speaker Elie El Saddik sharing his experiences in the Middle East.

We raised over $1,500.00 after expenses from the pasta dinner and many generous donations from our Catholic Community. Persecuted Christians have faced genocide and were forced to flee their homes. Knights of Columbus responded with the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, which directs 100% of all donations to benefit persecuted Christians, and those in their care, especially in the Middle East.

We appreciate the efforts of the Knights of Columbus Volunteers who prepared and served a great meal, the Ladies of St.
Anne who baked the cakes for desert and the many people who donated to the Persecuted Christians. God Bless you all for caring about our Catholic Christian Brothers and Sisters trying to rebuild their lives in war torn areas.

Many Thanks to Fr. Peter Gregory for being our Council #103 Chaplain, for many years providing us Spiritual Guidance.  Msgr. Michael Shershanovich is now our Chaplain, Fr. Peter said he is happy Msgr. Mike will be guiding our Council Spiritually for the future. We appreciate and are fortunate to have Msgr. Mike as our Chaplain.

Blue Mass Honors First Responders In Pittsfield

By Dick Lindsay  @BE_DLindsay on Twitter

PITTSFIELD >> Those dedicated to spiritual healing honored the police, fire and emergency medical technicians devoted to protecting the public's physical well being on Sunday evening.

Area priests, lead by Monsignor Michael Shershanovich, pastor of St. Joseph Church, gathered at the North Street house of worship to conduct a Blue Mass. The Catholic service attended by dozens of Berkshire County law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMTs paid tribute to public safety personnel active, retired and who died in the line of duty.

"Today we thank you for protecting us [and] giving so generously of yourselves, sometimes in very, very extreme situations," Shershanovich said during his homily.

  Chaplain's Comments
-by Msgr. Michael A. Shershanovich

   Dear Brother Knights,

As we close the Christmas Season and celebrate the New Year, may we take the image of the Three Kings with us.  They set out to find the Christ. They set out with open hearts and minds and carried with them valuable gifts to offer this new born king.  May we too be willing to set out to find Christ in our daily lives and offer him our gifts, the gifts of service and unity.
