Knights of Columbus Father McCarthy Council 4983
Knights of Columbus - Directors Actions
Council 4983 sponsors a continuous Vocation Rosary as requested by Fr. Michael Sartori, our pastor, for the specific intentions of vocations to the priesthood and religious life. The Vocation Rosary is a special rosary which has an image of St. John Vianney, patron saint of all priests on the centerpiece. It is accompanied by selected scripture readings and meditations. Participants pray the rosary for a two week period and then pass it to the next participant. The participants' schedule is published in the church bulletin (view bulletin on this web site). The Vocation Rosary is a parish endeavor and has been continuous since 2014.  If interested contact Nick Monroe at or 603.526.2624
