"For just as a body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead." -James 2:26
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest organization of Catholic men. Our core values are: Charity, Unity,
Fraternity, and Patriotism. By participating at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, our Council gives those values
meaning through the actions of our members.
Coffee Run Council, the oldest Catholic name in Delaware history, is made up of 150 men and their families who
make a difference in our parish, church, community, and nation.
Coffee Run Council business meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30PM in the Coffee Run Room at
St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Hockessin, Delaware. Social meetings, when held, are on the fourth Wednesday of each
month at 7:30PM in the Coffee Run Room at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Hockessin, Delaware. Check "Activities" for
"Jesus promises that the Spirit will be within us as a source of divine vitality. Paul tells us that the indwelling Spirit
will continue to long within us for the completion of the harvest of which we have as yet only the first fruits. We have a great example
of these promises when the assembled Apostles receive the Holy Spirit and they immediately go out and proclaim the good news
of Jesus' resurrection." Sunday Missal p554
Please remember our sick, suffering, nursing-bound and home-bound brothers and sisters in your daily
prayers. Also, please consider visiting these brothers and sisters. We have many Knights who are home alone and/or in nursing homes alone
that would love to have a visit from one of their brother knights. For more information on how to
contact or visit them, email Fraternal Services by clicking on Fraternal Services.
Roman Missal Revised Text Approved
The Vatican has issued final text of the Roman Missal, Third Edition, for the Dioceses of the United States of America.
The ritual text containing prayers and instructions for the celebration of the Mass, has been approved by the Congregation
for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. First use of the new text of the new Roman Missal will be on the
First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011. There are new words that reflect the original, deeper meaning, but the Mass is
the same. Click on "People's Parts" to see how the our responses at mass will change.
