July 2018 Council Update

 

Dear Brother Knights,

 

July 2018 Update

 

This month’s Grand Knight’s message:

 

Faith in Action – The Knights of Columbus (Supreme) has made some significant changes and enhancements to our Services Program model guidelines. Entitled ‘Faith in Action’, this model recognizes the changing needs of our Brothers in the 21st century. The model fully aligns to our key priorities; Faith, Family, Community and Life and integrates with the foundation of the Building the Domestic church program. A key objective is for Knights to lead their family in service. Our council, with the many activities that support these priorities, is well positioned to continue and enhance our faith in actions.

April 2018 Council Update

Dear Brother Knights,

 

April 2018 Update

 

This month’s Grand Knight’s message:

 

Our 25th Anniversary event this past Sunday attested to the spirit and brotherhood of our council. In the next General meeting we will commence our nominations for officers of the council for the up-coming council year starting in July. Let us know of your interest in taking up a position. If you haven’t been an officer this is a great opportunity to grow personally and lead by example. 

 

The month of May is the “month which the piety of the faithful has especially dedicated to Our Blessed Virgin Mary. There are typically special Marian devotions held in the church during the month honoring the Mary as “the Queen of May and Heaven.
