Epiphany’s Knights of Columbus seek new or gently used coats (also jackets and hooded sweatshirts) for those in need as the weather turns cold.
You have three ways you can help:
- Bring coats to Mass on September 25-26 or October 2-3.
- Send coats with your Epiphany School kids the week of September 27-October 1. The class with the most coats collected will have a pizza party! Epiphany’s Knights of Columbus will collect and deliver the coats to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for distribution. We know from many stories that people truly cherish these sources of warmth and comfort!
- Help us collect coats before\after Masses and\or help with the delivery to St. Vincent de Paul on Monday, 10/4. Click here for details.

The Knights will be helping the Red Cross with setup and cleanup activities with two drives they will be holding at Epiphany this spring that replace regularly scheduled drives that needed a new location due to the ARC being used as a vaccine distribution site. Click here for details and signups.
We have been informed by our school principal that the Diocese of Peoria will not allow any non-school events to be held in our Lyceum. As such, our event on Sunday, March 7th is CANCELED. Obviously, we are disappointed about this.
Mr. Smyth, Epiphany’s physical education teacher, will be allowed to hold the competition but only for school kids during regular school hours. He plans on executing this competition during classes over the next few days.
We apologize greatly that the competition has to be limited in this way, but it is beyond the control of anyone at Epiphany.
