Chapel of the Holy Innocents

On Monday, August 7, 2006, Mickey Lacombe, Grand Knight, presented Monsignor Roger A. Swenson, Pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Church with a check for $10,000 to help defray the cost of the new Chapel of the Holy Innocents. This money was raised from pledged donations of individual members of this council over a period of 5 years and was added to various fundraising efforts in the same period.

The chapel of the Holy Innocents is a special chapel where continuous adoration is practiced 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by the Catholic faithful.  It's name remembers those killed by abortion.
