Grand Knight's October Remarks

Created: Nov 01, 2022
Category: General News

The month of October started off with a degree exemplification and the addition of two new brothers to our council: Brs. Geoffrey Gorton and Matthew McNair.

Our council brothers purchased and cooked the food for our parish Fall Fest on the first Sunday of the month. I thank all the brothers who endured the smoke to provide the feast of the day. Our membership booth excelled in raffle ticket sales.

Br. Randy Gaa and I conducted a Church Drive at St. Ann’s Cathedral parish on the 8th & 9th of the month. We picked up two more prospects. We have been invited to Holy Trinity parish in Centerville for a Church Drive on the 6th of November. Please join if you’re able.

The council participated in a Public Square Rosary program on the 15 of October, as well as, the procession for the 40 Days for Life from Our Lady of Lourdes to Planned Parenthood on 10/16/22. We also participated in the Echoz annual fundraiser on 10/20/22.

Some of the important upcoming events in November are the closing of the 40 Days of Life program at Mount Olivet cemetery at 2:00 PM on 11/6/22 and the Centerville Church Drive on the same day.

The Holy Spirit Catholic School annual fundraiser, the GALA, will be held on 11/11/22 at the Newberry from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Please support this event!

Our council will hold a regional Degree Exemplification on 11/12/22 from 3:00 to 6:00 PM at Holy Spirit parish hall. Please come and support our new incoming brothers.

Our monthly breakfast will be held on Sunday the 20th of November from 6:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Please show up and help with our important breakfast event.

Finally, our council will participate in a Fraternal Benefits video streaming on 11/29/22 on “How to Become a Millionaire”. The screening will be held in the Holy Spirit parish hall at 6:00 to 7:00 PM. This should be very educational.

Busy times with plenty of opportunities to be of service to our parish, community, and parish. Surely there are activities which speak to you and I invite you to join us whenever you can.

Peace, Br. Tom, Grand Knight
