Christmas Greetings from Bishop Zubik to Woodlawn Council 2161


                                                       December 16, 2019

Dear Mr. Belli and Fellow Knights,

As we celebrate Christmas 2019 remembering the birth of Jesus in the Little Town of Bethlehem, so do we also cherish the ways we meet Jesus in one another.

Thanks for being the face of Christ to me.  Your Christmas remembrance of praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary for my intentions did just that.

May God bless you with a grace filled 2020.

Grateful for our belief that "Nothing is Impossible with God," I am

                                                       Your brother in Christ,

                                                       + Bishop Zubik

                                                       Most Reverend David A. Zubik
                                                       Bishop of Pittsburgh

Lyndora, PA - 31 Aug 2019.  During the TNT Conference held at St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 was presented with the Gold Shield Award for promoting devotion to the Traditional Latin Mass.  Woodlawn Council has been sponsoring the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass at St. Titus Church in Aliquippa, PA, since the promulgation of our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI's apostolic letter, Summorum Pontificum, in 2007.  The presentation was made by the Relic Crusade, a pious association devoted to rescuing Holy Relics, and organizer of the conference.  The Relic Crusade's All Saints Shrine, located at St. Michael the Archangel Church, houses dozens of Holy Relics that are on display for the veneration of the faithful.


The TNT Conference opened with the Holy Rosary, a Traditional Latin High Mass offered by Fr. Ladis J. Cizik, Chaplain of Woodlawn Council, and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.  Fr. Douglas Lorance, Pastor of St. Michael the Archangel Church, and Hermit David Care delivered conferences on devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and how to deal with current problems in the Church and society.  Conference attendees were afforded ample opportunity for Confession.  The conference concluded with a Holy Hour and Greek Catholic Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.


The conference was well attended, with faithful hailing from St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church; Most Precious Blood of Jesus Parish, Pittsburgh, PA, served by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest; Queen of the Holy Rosary Church, Vienna, OH, served by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter; St. James Church, West End, Pittsburgh, PA, served by the Society of Saint Pius X; and several other parishes.

Hermit David presents award to Fr. Cizik.
Sam Belli, Grand Knight of Woodlawn Council 2161, accepts award
