Dear Brother Knights,
With teachers and students returning to school and the celebration of Labour Day, parish life resumes and programs and organizations begin again.
This is also the case with the Knights of Columbus.
One of the charisms of the Knights that has impressed me, particularly with this Council, is the brotherhood or fraternity that you show. This was demonstrated recently on two occasions for which I am grateful. The first incident involved the break in at St. Anthony’s Church. The Knights rallied with the committee that takes care of the Church, to have the Church ready for the scheduled annual mass. You did such a great job. The second incident involves the prayer service for George Heisz on the day before his funeral. You came out in such great numbers to show your support for a fellow Knight. I was really impressed. Thank you again. I also want to thank you for the reception that you provided after the mass at St. Anthony’s. I know that it was much appreciated.
With this organization beginning again, it is a good time to approach men who may not be Knights and ask them to join our organization. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Our actions usually speak louder than words, and in recent events, I’m sure you have attracted some men to the Knights of Columbus because of your witness to the faith and to the Order. They may not know how to go about joining
I want to thank you for all that you do for our Church and community. See you at the next meeting.
