As we get closer to Easter, the Knights of Columbus are encouraging families in our parish communities to attend a Good Friday Mass at All Souls Catholic Church (Sanford), Nativity Catholic Church (Longwood), or a parish of your choice on April 19.

Despite Good Friday’s central nature in the heart of Christianity, attendance at services remains low. Putting their faith into action, the Knights of Columbus will encourage participation through a promotional campaign that educates their parishes on the vital importance of Good Friday. The liturgy of the Lord’s passion and death reminds families of the suffering Jesus endured through his passion and resurrection, thereby opening the gates of heaven for each of us.

Setting an example for their community, the Knights of Columbus will be attending all Masses at All Souls Catholic Church in Sanford and Nativity Catholic Church in Longwood on April 19, 2019. Mass times are 3:00 pm (both parishes), 6:30 pm (en español) at All Souls, and 7:00 pm at Nativity. All Souls is located at 3280 W 1st St, Sanford, and Nativity is at 3255 N Ronald Reagan Blvd, Longwood.

Council 5357 is one of 17,000 Knights of Columbus councils that make up the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in 1882 to assist working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, today the approximately two million members of the Knights put their faith into action through a broad range of charitable causes locally, nationally and internationally with financial contributions and hands-on service.
