The Knights of Columbus Pumpkin Pacer 5K foot race which was held on Halloween, raised $1520.10 for local charities.The Knights were able to present checks for $760.05 to both the Loon Lake Food Bank and the Greenhouse in Deer Park.  The Knights thank everyone who participated in this fun, and successful event.

On February 2, in place of the morning Mass, Father Kevin offered a Candlemas Mass in the evening. We gathered in the hall and with blessed, lighted candles we processed into the darkened church. So fitting that the readings should have exalted us to be "a light to the world”.
The next morning, on the feast of St. Blaise, the same candles were used in the blessing of the throats.

Candlemas Day - February 2nd

A Mass and Reactivation Ritual of Our Lady of Angels Fraternity for the Third Order Secular Franciscans was hosted at St Mary Presentation Parish, Deer Park, WA on January 28, 2017.  Members of the Spokane Secular Franciscan Fraternity elected to branch north to Deer Park, in order to extend the Secular Franciscan Fraternity to the communities north of Spokane.

Thank You from the Knights
During last September's Tootsie Roll Drive for Special Olympics, we raised $1,727.53. These funds were divided between the Riverside Racers ($431.83), The Arc of Spokane ($647.75), and Bernadette Place ($647.75). Thank you to all who participated with your volunteering and your donations.
