Light on a Knight: Dave DuPaul

Cross Catholic Outreach honors Dave DuPaul as this month’s “Light on a Knight.” He is an engaging and inspiring member of the MN Knights of Columbus, having led and participated in countless faith-in-action initiatives during his 20 years in the Order.

In fall of 2020, Dave helped spearhead the launch of the Box of Joy® ministry in Minnesota, bringing this engaging service opportunity to numerous councils throughout the state. By December 2021, Dave and MN State Deputy Dave Whatmuff inspired Knights within their jurisdiction to bless more than 5,000 children with a Christmas present!

Dave has also partnered with Cross Catholic Outreach on a number of faith-based initiatives. During the pandemic, he organized two virtual masses and two virtual rosary sessions for MN Knights. Each of these spiritual activities was directed by an outreach priest, some of whom were members of the Order.

We are grateful to Dave, and the MN councils, for serving alongside Cross Catholic Outreach in our ministry to serve the poor for the glory of Jesus Christ.
