St. Paul's Catholic Church & School, 510 W Roosevelt Ave, Nampa, ID 83686, USA

The Family Life Director in the Diocese of Boise asked me to personally invite you to attend their annual Catholic Men’s Conference on Saturday, February 4th, 2023.
In an effort to provide this opportunity to more men, they have an online option for those who can’t travel to Idaho. For Men’s ministry groups, they also have a “Watch Party” option where you can pick a location and “attend” the event virtually as a group.
The theme this year is “Be a Saint”. The day begins at 8:00am with a Welcome and Mass with Bishop Peter, and closes with the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 2:50pm.
Here is the link with more information and to register.

What are the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Please contact us for more information about becoming a Knight!
