Faithful Navigator’s Message


Jean and I want to wish everyone a joyful Easter.

Please note that there is no dinner meeting in March as it would interfere with the Easter celebrations.

Instead, please try to attend our Communion Breakfast on April 3rd. Be sure to let either myself or Dave Franks know how many people you are bringing with you.

We also have a Dinner Meeting on April 25th. Again, I hope to see everyone out for that.

Message from your Chaplain


Dear Brother Knights,

By the time that you receive this message, we will be in the season of Lent. Lent is that period in our Church year when we prepare for the greatest feast day of Easter. The preferred penances of the Church are prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Through this season, we will all be doing some penance as hatred against sin. We have Lenten material that you can pick up at the Churches to help us in our prayer and meditations. I want to thank you for taking one of the evenings for the Stations of the Cross. This particular devotion has helped generations of people as they try to carry their own crosses. We also have adult faith formation being offered. Perhaps you could join in. They are all listed in the bulletin.

As this is the year of mercy, it might be a good idea to meditate and work at the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.

Thank you again for all that you do for the Church and the wider community, you and your work are much appreciated. Have a blessed Lent.

Your Chaplain,

Fr. Dick Bester

Grand Knight’s Message


Dear Brother Knights & Ladies:

We are now into the Lenten season, a time for us to prepare for Christ’s Death & Resurrection. Our Cluster has provided material and programs to assist us in our preparation.

One of the programs is The Stations of The Cross held on Friday evenings at 7 PM. The Knights of Columbus will lead The Stations of The Cross on Friday Feb 26th at Immaculate Conception Church. I urge you to attend.

On another note we are in the process of ordering Sport Shirts. They are short sleeve with the Knight’s Emblem embroidered and available with or without a pocket. There is more information in this bulletin. Sample shirts are available to determine the correct size. I urge you to consider getting one of these shirts. When we are working at a fund raising events it helps promote our organization.

As most of you know we have four Bingo Teams that work at our weekly Bingo. Some Brothers can no longer work due to health reasons. We need some brothers to become involved. If you can come out once every four weeks let me know.

We are also going to be having a 1st Degree. We need new members. Approach family and friends and urge them to consider joining The Knights.

Your Grand Knight

John J. Price
