2 May 6, 2016 THE U.P. CATHOLIC AROUND THE DIOCESE www.upcatholic.org Sponsored in part by a grant from the Legacy of Faith Endowment Foundation, Diocese of Marquette. Please join us in welcoming convert, author and Evangelist DEACON ALEX JONES! The SPIRIT is a movin'! The Holy Spirit Catholic Parish Mission that is! May 14, 2016 4:00pm - Mass May 15, 2016 7:30 & 10:15am - Mass May 15 - 18, 2016 Spirit-filled Mission 6:30 - 8:00pm Alex Jones was an "on-fire" Pentecostal minister who was a completely dedicated shepherd of his flock. In seeking to give them the most genuine experience of the early Church, he carefully read Scripture, the Fathers of the Church and writings of the early saints. The more he read, the more Alex came to the startling conclusion that the present day Catholic Church - and the Holy Mass - is the same exact "worship service " from the very early Church. Eventually Alex, and most of his parish, joined the Catholic Church. With the same SPIRIT, he now preaches as an ordained Deacon in the Catholic Church. Where else would you rather be on Pentecost? Knights of Columbus hosted an inaugural Hockey Shootout at the Negaunee ice area for youth ages 6 to 14 years old on March 5. Eleven work- ers, including two Negaunee hockey coaches, from four of the Marquette District councils provided labor for 18 partici- pants from Gwinn, Ishpeming, Marquette and Negaunee. Competitors were in divisions of Mites (ages 6 to 8), Squirt (ages 9 to 10), Pee Wee (ages 11 to 12) and Bantam (ages 13 to 14). Participants shot from the 15 and 25 foot shooting lines. Equipment was loaned by the Iron Range Hockey Association, which also provided a conces- sion stand. Negaunee Council #2894 supplied a trophy for the winner in each division. All participants received an official hockey puck with Knights of Columbus emblem stickers that showed the event and date. Marquette Diocesan Program Director, Dave Guenther, said he spoke with several par- ents, the hockey association and arena management. He said the consensus was they were pleased with the event and hope it continues. Other Knights of Columbus districts have indicated interest in host- ing hockey shootouts. The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 at St. Marys Church in New Haven by the Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney. It is today the worlds largest Catholic frater- nal organization with nearly 1.9 million members worldwide.
