It is important to bring the community together and what better way than by sharing a meal. Six times per year, we organize a Parish breakfast after the Sunday Masses for good food and fellowship. A small fee is charged and all proceeds go to Charity. Our next breakfast is 99/99/2019.
In lieu of our normally scheduled meetings in July, we have a pot luck dinner. We provide the main dish, paper products and soft drinks. Members bring a dish to pass.
Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter, no matter the season, there is a need for blood. That's why we bring in the American Red Cross and organize blood drives. Our Summer Drive was on July 20th and we collected 42 units of blood. Our record is 72 units but we have the capacity to collect 120. Help us shatter our record by signing up for our Fall Blood Drive on October 24th. For more information about our next blood drive, click the button below and type in "holyspirit" when asked to "Find a Blood Drive".
The youth are our future and we need to keep them on the right path spiritually. So, we engage them in school activities and outside activities. Every year the kids look forward to the Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest and Trunk-n-Treat (our version of Halloween). Other programs and events for our youth sponsored by the Knights are:
Free Throw Contest, Soccer Challenge, Essay Contest, father/son camp outs, daddy/daughter dances & Easter egg hunts.
Items in bold are suspended until an organizer steps up. How about you organizing one of these programs?
Better known as the Tootsie Roll Drive, our Council has been participating in this program since our inception in 1980.
In 2019, 432 Councils in Michigan participated in this program and raised well over over $1,000,000 for Mentally Impaired people of Michigan. Council 7891 raised nearly $4000 and the beneficiaries were the St. Louis Center in Chelsea MI and Area 27 of the Michigan Special Olympics.
Council 7891 supports the religious in many ways. Our Christmas Wreath sales in November helps support three Seminarians. Our bi-annual scrap metal drives provide funding for young campers at Camp Santa Maria in Gaylord MI.
Every August is a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game. Council 7891 is committed to selling 80 tickets with a bus ride from the church parking lot. A few dollars from every ticket sale will go to support the religious in the Lansing Diocese.
We conduct a lot of programs and events at Council 7891 but there are many more we can't because our membership is declining.
