News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 40 │ NUMBER 14 │ APRIL 5, 2022
The Knights of Columbus continues to provide humanitarian aid — including food, medical supplies, clothing and temporary shelter, as well as means of transportation — for refugees and displaced people of Ukraine. Knights and others have given more than $8.7 million to the Ukraine Solidarity Fund in support of the Order’s ongoing efforts. Learn more and donate today at kofc.org/ukraine.
The Road to SafetyMore than 80 Ukrainian refugees have been welcomed to Slovenia thanks to the efforts of Tamino Petelinšek, a Slovenian photographer and a member of the Knights. Petelinšek, who has been documenting the Order’s humanitarian work in Poland and Ukraine, worked with the Knights of Columbus to arrange two buses from Hrebenne to his native country, where Caritas Slovenia is assisting the refugees with housing, schooling, medical care and jobs.
Refugee Family Gives ThanksWhen the bombing began in Kyiv, Ukraine, Roman and Olga Panivnyk fled the country for the sake of their children. They were immediately assisted by the Knights of Columbus in Poland, and later arrived in the United States. On March 16, the family made a pilgrimage to New Haven, Conn., where they met with Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly at the Supreme Council headquarters and gave thanks at St. Mary’s Church for the intercession of Blessed Michael McGivney. WATCH VIDEO | READ MORE
