Clinton couple named Knights of Columbus Family of the Year

BILOXI – Mississippi’s Knights of Columbus gathered on the coast for their 114th annual convention the last weekend of April this year. Bishop Joseph Kopacz joined Bishop Louis Kihneman of Biloxi to concelebrate a memorial Mass at St. Michael Church. Diocese of Jackson chaplain for the Knights, Father Scott Thomas, joined them.
Among the honors the Diocese of Jackson councils brought home, Bill and Carolyn O’Connor of Clinton Holy Savior Parish are the family of the year for the state. The couple serve in multiple ministries at their parish and are known for their willingness to do whatever is needed.
The convention gives the knights a chance to participate in workshops and trade ideas as well as renew their commitment of service to the church.
