Council 8386 - Parish Program

On Saturday, February 15th the members of Mary, Queen of the Knights Council #8386 organized and hosted a parish-wide "Valentine Marriage Vow Renewal and Potluck Dinner" at St. Germaine Parish in Prescott Valley, Az.

Fr. Dan Vollmer officiated at this unique event, reinforcing the sacramental bond of marriage over the romantic notion of marriage. "81" couples congregated in the church after Friday evening's mass and renewed their commitment to each other before God and their fellow parishioners. "131" people then walked across the grounds and further celebrated this event by partaking in a parish-wide potluck dinner in the parish hall. After the meal and plenty of desserts, Fr. Dan drew tickets for one of the "22" door prizes provided by the Knights.

All of the parishioners who attended were delighted to participate in this special event and a number of them later contacted the parish hall and requested that this become an annual event.
