Knights Roundtable:   Sunday, September 25, will be the next Knights Meeting following Mass.  We’ll open with the Rosary, followed by business.  At our last meeting we considered hosting a parish hamburger cookout, which may be the major topic If any men at St. Christopher are interested in discovering Knight’s activities, grab a cup of coffee, a snack and please join us.  Our Roundtable meeting is a lot less formal than the Knights Council meetings.
