The Lounge

A reminder, the K of C building is closed on Mondays during the month of August. It will reopen on Mondays beginning September 14th.

Tammy Holden serves food on Thursday evening beginning about 5:30 p.m. It is a light meal, consisting of burger & fries, or sloppy joes and similar type items.

It is a relaxed environment for members AND their guests.
The evening is NOT just for the Thursday night golfers.


Golf Outing Sunday, September 20th.

The House Committee is sponsoring a golf outing at Twin Brooks Golf Course in Chesaning. It is a four person scramble that is open to members AND their guests. It will be a shotgun format beginning at 10:00 am. Females are welcome guests and may tee off from the red tees. Golfers 65 and older may tee off from the gold tees. All others will use the white tees. We are hoping that we can fill the course with members and nonmembers. The cost is $70 per person for 18 holes with a cart, a steak dinner at the course after golf, entrance into the skins game and a Mulligan. Dean Schirle is the son of Bernie Schirle, who was a very active member of Council 1139. He manages the course and is very interested in making our outing special. There will be drink specials on the course. Prizes will be awarded for different place finishes and activities like the longest drive, etc. We will have a sign-up sheet at the hall and at Twin Brooks. Questions can be directed to Mark Bruckman, Freddie Petersen or John Smith. All proceeds will go to the House Committee to continue hall projects and for the repair or replacement of equipment as needed.

Call to the Collar

CNN's This ia Life with Lisa Ling "Called to the Collar: Lisa travels to the Midwest, where more Catholic men are being drawn to the priesthood than anywhere else in the county, in a time where the Catholic population is on the rise, but the number of Catholic priests is dwindling.

Caring for Our Treasured Gifts

Our senior priests are among the most treasured gifts in our diocese. While they no longer have administrative responsibility for a specific parish, they continue to serve the people of our diocese. They celebrate Mass for pastors who are ill or on vacation and they assist in a wide variety of other ways. They hear confessions, they visit nursing homes, hospitals and prisons; they continue their priestly life to the extent that age and health permits. These dedicated servants of the Church have been our teachers, builders, ministers, confessors, counselors and our friends. We’ve turned to them in time of great tragedy, and we have invited them to join in celebrating our times of great joy. We’ve asked for their prayers. We have entrusted them with the education and spiritual development of our children.


Council 1139 Apparel

There are many opportunities to purchase KofC items but when can you buy items that are unique to our Council? Well, the time is now!! The clothing items are on display at the lounge and the signup sheet is in the display case so order now and pay upon delivery. We are not as fast as Amazon but you won’t find these items there! The golf shirts, sweatshirts and hats make wonderful Christmas gifts and are reasonably priced thanks to Doug Edwards. The order will go in soon and thereafter as demand dictates.
