C/O: Grand Knight | 1086 Golden Grove Drive | The Villages, FL 32162
Welcome a new Brother Knight
Quinn Baudouin is 18 years old, which makes him the youngest member of our council. He grew up in El Paso, Texas. The reason for becoming a Knight is internal achievement; in simpler terms, spiritual growth. His grandfather, who was an active member of the Knights of Columbus in his earlier years, was an example that influenced and encouraged him to follow in his footsteps. The pleasure of continuing his mission to help others whether it be in the parish, council, or the community is what he hopes to get out of his membership in Sacred Heart Council 8012. He is very hardworking, currently employed at a local pawn shop. You may be wondering what a young entrepreneur like him does in his spare time? He has a great love of fencing. Currently, he is a coach at Enguard Fencing Center. Prior to coaching, he competed on teams from the University of Florida and University of Texas-El Paso; which earned him the prestigious title of being the first high school student to compete at UF. If you attend the 9 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays, it is a good chance you may see him.
Knights as Apostles
During the Easter Season, Knights of 8012 particpated in being Apostles during Holy Week
n behalf of Florida Knights of Columbus State Deputy Don Goolesby, District Deputy Joseph Rzepka and Council 8012, we want to thank the Parishioners of St. Theresa Catholic Church for their support for the Holy Family Icon which was exhibited during the week of February 14th to the 20th. The support for the Prayer Service for the Holy Family Icon was overwhelming. The family as God intended has been under attack by many forces and it is important for us, as Catholics, to stand firm supporting the Family. The prayer service gave a mighty witness to what God intended the family to be. Thank you, again, for your support.
God Bless Our Families,
Joseph Rzepka, Sr.
District Deputy #20
Holy Family Icon
Tuesday evening the Youth Group had a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to the church in the evening and venerate and have a small prayer service with the Holy Family Icon. As this represents the holiest of love as they were able to see Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We want to thank KofC Council 8012 for sponsoring this opportunity for the Parish.
The icon will be at the church until Sat morning. All are welcome to come see

I Would like to thank all the people who purchased pumpkins and those who spent many hours selling pumpkins in our “Pumpkin Patch” in October. We made a profit of over $600 for the Knights of Columbus “Coats for Kids” project”.
