In preparation for Election Day, the Knights of Columbus is calling its members and all the faithful to join together in a novena to the Holy Trinity through the maternal intercession of the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the United States.
Join your brother Knights around the nation for this novena, beginning on Sunday, Oct. 30, and concluding on Monday, Nov. 7. The prayer for the novena can be found HERE.
Our country is in desperate need of prayer. Please ask all your brother Knights and their families, as well as your pastor and fellow parishioners, to pray this national novena for the protection, well-being and freedom of our country.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Brother Ed Lane, PGK. Ed has been a member of the Council for over 35 years and Financial Secretary for the last 30. All of the many contributions Ed has made to the Council during this time are too long to list, but it can simply be said, “whenever anybody needed help or whenever something needed to get done, Ed was there.”
Lane, Edwin E., 72, on October 8, 2016. Ed was the beloved husband of Mary A. “Maureen” (Whooley) and the son of the late Concetta (Chessari) and Edwin B. Lane. Born in Jersey City, NJ, Ed was a West Milford resident for the past 45 years. Ed was retired, formerly employed as a salesman for Brad-Pack Enterprises, Inc. He was active in the Knights of Columbus Fr. Francis Koch Council # 6343 as a 4th Degree Knight. In addition, he was a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary / Homeland Security, American Legion Post #289 of West Milford, and the Macopin Volunteer Fire Company. Surviving in addition to his wife are his son, Allen E. and his wife Lynda, and his daughter, Sharon Magner and her husband Jeff. He is also survived by his two brothers, Anthony and Richard. He was a loving grandfather who cherished his four grandchildren, Connor and Alexander Lane and Johnny and Molly Magner. He was a caring husband, father, grandfather and brother as well as an active member of his community who will be greatly missed.
