6/14/2022 – Fraternal Benefit Night

The Fr. Thomas Carmody Council at Epiphany Parish cordially invites you to attend an open event for the parish along with Knights of Columbus members around the community.

We are hosting a Fraternal Benefit Night on Tuesday June 14th starting at 6:00 PM in the Epiphany Parish Hall. This event will feature Ed Slott, who is a nationally recognized speaker specializing in retirement planning for the year of 2022. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about ways to capitalize our retirement as well as learn about our own insurance program within the Knights of Columbus.

Our very own agent Brandon Pals will be in attendance as well to answer questions you may have in regard to the insurance program with the Knights of Columbus!

Please R.S.V.P before Tuesday June 7th.  Food will be provided, and we will also be happy to answer any questions you may have in regard to the Knights of Columbus.

If you have questions, feel free to reach out to our Grand Knight Jared Pletsch at We look forward to seeing you there!

Christmas Parade and Setup Outdoor Nativity

Our council will have our “Keep Christ in Christmas” entry in the Jaycee’s Christmas parade on Saturday, 12/4. We will be loading up the trailer on the west side of Epiphany between 8:30 and 8:45 AM and will then car pool to the start of the parade (Kinsley Junior High).

We will hand out tootsie rolls as we walk the parade route. Please note masks are required for those handing out the candy.

Following the parade, we will return to Epiphany and complete setting up the outdoor nativity scene. We are usually back from the parade around 11:15 and it takes about 45 minutes to complete the setup.

The below link includes a signup both activities.

We Need some Help Shoveling Church Sidewalks after Snow

We are looking for some Knights who may be available to help shovel (or snow blow) church sidewalks following a snow before weekday and weekend Masses.

If you might be able to help in this capacity, please add your name to the signup for weekday or weekend Mass. This is not a commitment for every snow event. It just indicates you may be available to help. We would then provide further instructions once snow is in the forecast.
