Council March 2018 Update

Dear Brother Knights,

March 2018 Update

This month’s Grand Knight’s message:

The month of March is dedicated to St. Joseph and falls during the season of Lent represented by the liturgical color purple; a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart. The feast days of the most solemn and Holy Week commence Mar. 25 with Palm Sunday followed by the Sacred Triduum of Holy Thursday (Mar. 29), Good Friday (Mar. 30) and Holy Saturday (Mar. 31). Easter Sunday (April 1) commences with the celebration of the Resurrection and continues throughout the month.

If you owe $45 for your 2018 Annual Knights member dues, please contact Reid Robertson as soon as possible to make arrangements. reidrobertson82@gmail.com 905-509-3177. Thanks

January 2018 Update for Council

 

Dear Brother Knights,

 

January 2018 Update

 

Grand Knight’s Message

 

“We wish all our Brothers and their families the best in 2018 as we enter this new year.  We have many interesting events and activities planned for the balance of our council year that you can choose to be engaged with.

 

With the Solemnity of the Baptism of our Lord now past, we commence the church’s month of February. 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.”

 

We would also like to extend congratulations to our Council Director Kevin Foxton and his wife on the birth of their daughter this month.

June Council Update

 

Dear Brother Knights,

Please take a moment to review our upcoming events and take steps to be PART OF IT!

 

This month’s Grand Knight’s message:

 

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Hear of Jesus. The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Friday following the second Sunday after Pentecost. Many devotional exercises are connected with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In this month’s issue of Knightline, we are encouraged to continue building and supporting the Domestic Church. The Family Rosary program has been added. Parents are reminded to teach children the ‘Art of Living’ through faith and character.

 

June is the last month our Knight’s year and thanks to all Brothers who have put in time and effort to make this year a success and raise funds for our Council charities.
