Knights of Columbus - 'Into the Breach'

Knights of Columbus - 'Into the Breach'

In the early morning of May 28, members of the Knights of Columbus from Coventry, South Windsor and New Haven traveled virtually across the Atlantic Ocean to the rural town of Whitechurch in County Cork, Ireland. These brother Knights are part of the Connecticut State Spiritual Reflection Team led by David Imhof, the Connecticut State Faith director for the Knights of Columbus. It also includes Matt McGrath of New Haven, the Connecticut state deputy. They had a mission that morning to deliver a clarion call to the men of Ireland. They presented the “Into The Breach” Day of Reflection (DOR). 

The DOR is based on the “Into The Breach” Apostolic Exhortation by Bishop Olmsted of Phoenix and the video series produced by the Knights of Columbus. “Into The Breach” seeks to answer three questions: What is a Catholic man, how does a Catholic man love and why is fatherhood so important? The DOR is made up of activities including prayer, presentations and talks. 

Fr. Gabriel Burke, the pastor of the parish in County Cork, is a Catholic priest familiar with the Knights of Columbus because of his time in Boston and a recent guest on the podcast “Along The Way,” hosted by David Fortin. It was this continued relationship that opened the door for this day to be possible.

The Connecticut State Spiritual Reflection team has presented this day of reflection other times and in other formats ranging in time from one hour to a full day. The audience of these activities are men. The team is available to parishes, men’s groups, Knights councils to present these activities in person or virtually. Interested groups can contact David Imhof, imhofda@aol.com to arrange support.

Then her husband, Michael, had a job opportunity in Connecticut, so she and her family moved to Colchester. One Sunday morning, after moving there, the family was running late preparing their four children for church, so they ended up attending a later Mass, 11 a.m. at St. Andrew Church. That was the first time Colleen heard the choir sing for Mass, and al...
