This month is dedicated to the Holy Family with the Feast of the Presentation on Feb. 2nd. where the Christ child is  ‘the light of revelation to the Gentiles will save his people from their sins’.  The latter part of the month will be the beginning of Lent.

 

Regarding our 2018 membership dues, again you can pay the $45 fee directly to our Financial Secretary –  Reid Robertson. Or you can pay via a cheque made out to ‘Knights of Columbus – 11098’ and leave it in the church in box addressed to Reid. Thank you.”

2017-10-01 GK Comments

All KoC 11098 Exec, Directors:
Per Allan’s memo, Thanks to Br Blair for the tracking of activities by our Brs. over the last 2 years. With this & other information, I have attached an up-dated Retention list with the added columns that reflect this activity and engagement in our council. This is namely Paid Status (2017), Service Pillar Involvement, Event lead as well Council exec positions.
What is noteworthy is that there are many paying Brs. who haven’t been active or in a fairly limited way. These would be our TARGETS to be more active, engaged and retain them as Brs. Again the trend is if they are not engaged over time then may leave.
Action: As suggested br Br. Paul and others, when you have an event / activity rplease each out to perhaps 3-5 of those who have been somewhat inactive and invite them to come out & join the event. IN some cases they may just need the invite. I’ve highlighted these Brs. IN BLUE.   See DOCUMENT on website: “Retention List Member…..xls”
We had a good Business meeting with the Budget finalized and other items as Hockey, approved & recommendation on other items as increasing McCluskey fund. Bingo is ready to go and we do have some actions / projects our council will lead at Manresa post Reid & I visit there. I will report on that separately. We also agreed we need to refresh / enhance our church foyer bulletin board.
I am not at the GM General Meeting Tuesday as I need to attend another. Tiago will be acting GK and Jason DGK. Besides the above , we will be moving forward with initial planning for the 25th with advisory input & presence of our PGK’.s, Jason and a few others.
Thanks for your continued support and have a good meeting

September 2017 Update

Dear Brother Knights,

September 2017 Update.

 

Grand Knight’s Message

 

Welcome again to the new 2017-18 Knights of Columbus fraternal year.  This past month our council Knights have started this year with activities that attest to our fraternal spirit and what the Knights do for our brother Knights and the community. In August we supported the Youth Frisbee tourney with our BBQ serving over 200 participants. Earlier this month we had our best turnout for Council Fun Bowling and most recently our Brothers built a backyard staircase for the widow of a dear Br. who had passed. You can review these activities on our St. Isaac Jogues Knights of Columbus Facebook https://www.facebook.com/St-Isaac-Jogues-Knights-of-Columbus-1937011353221830/ and our web site. http://kofc11098.org/ Please ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ the activity page events that promotes our council’s visibility and actions that support our target causes and charities.
