“Praise the Lord for how well it went,” said Grand Knight Mike McMahon with the Knights of Columbus Council 12208 of St. Ann’s in La Vernia.

He was remarking on the great success of his council’s “40 Cans for Lent” food drive, which resulted in a total of 3,945 pounds of food items donated during the weeks of Lent leading up to Easter. Everything collected was donated to the La Vernia Christian Food Pantry, he said.

Joining the Knights and the parishioners of St. Ann Catholic Church this year were members of Christ Lutheran Church of Elm Creek, Immanuel Lutheran Church, and the La Vernia United Methodist Church, all members of the La Vernia Ministerial Alliance.

“It’s the first year for the other churches to join us,” Mike said.

“Great things happen when we work together!” added his wife, Janice.

Last year’s Lenten food drive resulted in 1,500 pounds collected for the food pantry.

“We’re looking forward to the community participation again next year, to make it bigger and better,” Mike said.

The Knights of Columbus are grateful to the members of the La Vernia community for supporting the group’s other Lenten effort, its Friday fish fry, held each Friday during Lent. The Knights served more than 1,000 meals this year, Mike said. Proceeds will benefit the Knights’ scholarship fund.

This year, the group will award a total of eight $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors who attend St. Ann’s.
