Message of the GK - Feb 2014

Brothers,

 

We are entering a new year and we have some exciting events to look forward to attending. I want to encourage all third and first Degree Brothers to advance themselves in the order. ' BECOME A FULL KNIGHT” , take the leap. You will not regret it, I assure you.

I would like to ask that all Brothers make every attempt to attend the General Business Meeting on the third weds of each month. GET INVOLVED, IT IS GREAT FELLOWSHIP ! I  would ask that any Brother that cannot make the meeting call me directly, or send me an email before the meeting date. I am accessible to all Brothers.

When I first started as a Knight, I did not get involved. I found the meeting to be boring and not relevant to my daily life. It was only when i volunteered to BBQ of be in the Dunk tank that I found getting involved made the whole experience of being a Knight to be full and rewarding. I look forward to see you at the meeting in February, and work with you side by side.

 

Vivat Jesus!!

Brothers,

The month of November and December are going to be very active. We have been successful in scheduling ourselves in the High school with activities that are manageable. I am very excited to be so visible in an institution that fosters our Catholic principles. We will have a banner testifying to that support in the Gym very soon.

There are a number of initiatives that are coming through from State/Supreme, I will be presenting these activities as they become available. HO HO HO Merry Christmas, I really can’t believe that we are at the front door of another season. I suggest that we start thinking about how we can celebrate the season in our communities. Please bring any suggestions to the next General Business meeting.

I am looking forward to the Family Pot Luck and welcoming the new members to the council. I love to eat and celebrate with my bothers. Please come and bring your enthusiasm and favorite dish. We will be presenting a wonderful story at our Family Movie Knight for young and “not so young “. The profits of the concession will go towards supporting our youth group in attending the Camp Homewood Retreat. Please come and Enjoy

Brothers, 

I am writing you to welcome you the new fraternal year. I appear to be a busy and fulfilling time for all. Some of my goals for this year is to establish an Infrastructure that invites all to participate in their areas of interest. I want to build a strong charitable atmosphere, and offer our support to the Sacred Heart Parish and COMMUNITY at large.

Supporting St Andrews Regional High School will build a strong foundation for our community Youth. It is my hope that we, as a council, can consider establishing a Squire Circle this year or the next fraternal year. I want to welcome new members from ALL of our multi-diverse ethnic populations in our parish. The KNIGHT OF COLUMBUS is for all practicing catholic men to participate in the fraternal affairs, I want us to reach out our hands and welcome everyone to this wonderful order.

In the upcoming months I will enter a message outlining the goals set forth by our Executive Council. These goals will be presented to the General Business Meeting, but all are welcome to come and participate at the Executive level. These messages and goals will be posted on the website on monthly basis. I welcome all feedback and remarks.

Thank You for the work that you have done to make Sacred Heart Council 15445 a strong and viable addition to the District 1 of the Knights of Columbus. Hope to see you at the meetings and participate at the fraternal gathering after each meeting.

Vivat Jesus
