McGivney Canonization Rosary Program


The NH State Council’s McGivney Canonization Rosary Program asks councils and individual members to host canonization rosaries to honor Blessed Michael McGivney. The success of our goal with the McGivney Beatification Rosary, to pray over 2,020 rosaries by Founder's Day, March 29, 2021, has inspired us to continue this program for the cause toward Sainthood. Rosary submissions may be individual rosaries prayed by a member, or, number in attendance at a council's rosary service.

Knights of Columbus

New Hampshire State Council

Men’s Retreat

Dear Reverend Chaplains,

Worthy Grand Knight,

Brothers All,

I am pleased to announce the return of the Knights of Columbus State of NH Annual Men’s Retreat September 17th – 19th at Camp Bernadette, on beautiful Lake Wentworth, Wolfeboro, NH.  It is my pleasure to invite you and all the members of your council to this retreat. We all know how we occasionally need our spiritual batteries recharged. Join us and Fr. John MacKenzie, pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes-St. Joseph's Parish, who has graciously accepted the invitation to be the Spiritual Leader for the weekend.  Those of us who know Fr. “Mac” know that the weekend will be filled with many pearls of spiritual wisdom on how we, men, need to WALK IN TRUTH AND LOVE. There will be time for personal peaceful conversation with our Lord.

We welcome back “Chef” John McClure as our culinary provider.  On Saturday night John will be preparing our traditional Surf n’ Turf dinner instituted by Fr. Smolley who would say, “and this ain’t hot dogs and fish sticks”.  I guarantee you will not go hungry!

This retreat is open to all Knights, their sons (16 or older) and their guests.  My Brother Knights I strongly suggest you invite a non-Knight. Once he experiences the brotherhood of a group of TRUE CATHOLIC MEN he will be asking, “What do I need to become a Knight?”. Total cost for the weekend is only $75.00 which includes ALL meals, multi person “rustic summer camp” cabins for sleeping and retreat materials. Attached you will find a retreat Information Sheet, a copy of the weekend schedule, directions to Camp Bernadette and registration forms. Please feel free to make additional copies of the registration form and the directions sheet if you need them.

Camp Bernadette is a very beautiful and peaceful place and I know it will be a great experience for us all

whether this is your first weekend experience or you are a veteran “Retreat goer”. So, join us in September for a weekend of fellowship, spirituality and laughter as we learn to WALK IN TRUTH AND LOVE.

Vivat Jesus.

God Bless,

Jim Preisendorfer, PDD, FFD, PFN, PGK
