Knights of Columbus 5K Run for Vocations

The 10th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Vocations organized by the Knights of Columbus of Coldwater was Saturday, November 12, 2022, starting at 10:00 a.m. It was held at St. Charles Center in Carthagena, Ohio. One hundred runners registered in various age groups starting at 10 and under to 65+. The proceeds gained from participants and the many sponsors help to financially support vocations.

After the run, the participants come into the St. Charles Center building and were able to replenish their energy with such food items as bananas, yogurt, donuts and drinks. Awards were presented for first, second and third in each age group. Pumpkin pies were also distributed to lucky winners.

At the event, both the Missionaries of the Precious Blood and the Sisters of the Precious Blood had displays of vocations materials along with a variety of items available for whoever wished to stop by the table and pick them up. This year, Father Steve Dos Santos and Brother Tim Cahill, as well as other priests and brothers, were present. Representing the Sisters were Sister Rita Rogier, Pauline Siesegh and Martha Bertke.
