Faithful Navigator’s Message

Sir Knights & Ladies:

Frank Flood lost his battle with cancer on June 4th. He is now with the Lord. Our prayers and condolences go out to Catherine and the Flood family.

This past Sunday we celebrated the 150th Anniversary of St. Joseph’s Parish. We were blessed by having Bishop Fabbro be the celebrant & homilist at all the weekend masses to help celebrate this historical event. Our Assembly financially supported the planning committee with a $150 donation.

I want to express my thanks to the Sir Knights that provided an Honour Guard for Confirmation on June 4th & the Final Sunday Mass on June11th.

At our May meeting we also approved: —

$ 25 for each of the 5 Separate Schools Graduation to cover cost of a keeper plaque for a student at each school.

$ 500 in support of the Bible Camp.

While we will not have meetings over the summer months, our commitment to working at bingos continues. Check out the schedule. Contact Larry McCabe if you are available.

Our BBQ Dinner will be on Monday June 26th. Cost for the meal is $10.00 per person.

As this is my last letter as your Faithful Navigator, I want to express my thanks to the SK’s that assisted me these last few months, while I devoted time with Mary Lou.

Also thanks to Howard Culligan for accepting the nomination as Faithful Navigator.

Fraternally Yours

Sir Knights & Ladies,

Easter is the greatest feast in our Liturgical Year. We are all thankful that Jesus died & rose again for our sins, but as humans we come up short on our promises to him. Let us ask for forgiveness & try to do better.

Our Spring Communion Brunch numbers were down. Those that could attend enjoyed the meal and fellowship. Thanks to Dave & Joan Franks for organizing and the SK’s that assisted in the Ministries during The Mass.

We have received a licence to run “Bingos”. All profits from the bingos will go to our parish cluster. The six months schedule has been issued and we have 10 bingos (ref. attached). Our 1st Bingo is a matinee Sunday Apr 23rd. Those who can assist working bingos please contact Larry McCabe or John Price.

Ross Campbell, a member of our council, will be Ordained to the Priesthood. His 1st Mass will be at Immaculate Conception Church on Sat May 13th 5:00 p.m..

As mentioned in the last newsletter, we will provide two “Honour Guards” Sunday June 4th Confirmation & Sunday June 11th Dedication St. Joseph’s Church. (Also may be requested for Fr. Ross Campbell’s Mass on May 13th.)

Our next Dinner Meeting will be on Monday May 24th. At this meeting there will be executive nominations for upcoming term.

Fraternally Yours

Sir Knights & Ladies:

The Lenten Season is fast approaching. Christ suffered for our sins, died & rose again.

Let us use this time during lent to reflect, pray, fast & help those less fortunate as we prepare ourselves for Easter. Our parish cluster provides us with additional service gatherings to help us. Let’s take advantage.

Our Lottery Eligibility submission has been approved. We now have to apply for a Lottery Licence, required to work at Bingo’s, funds from which are used for approved charities.

We can see that spring is coming, days are getting longer.

SK Dave Franks has booked Sunday April 02, 2017 for our Communion Breakfast at the Queens Inn.

At our next meeting we will be filling the position of Outer Sentinel.

Any Sir Knight that has not completed their Members Memorial Charity Donation Form, please do so. If you need a form contact John Price.

Let us pray for and contact Sir Knights & family members that are having health issues at this time.

Sir Knights & Ladies

The Christmas Season, a time when we celebrate the birth of Christ, has ended and we are now in Ordinary Time.

At the weekend masses Fr. Bester mentioned a new direction for our London Diocese “Family of Parishes”. This has been in the works for some time and will replace our “Clustered Parishes”. One of the reasons for this is in the next few years there will be even less Priests. I know that we don’t like change but let us pray that our Spiritual Leaders make the right decisions.

On another note Mary Lou is progressing, her spirits are good, she enjoys company & is looking forward to getting out of the Hospital.

Activities for our Assembly have been quiet over the Christmas Holiday that gave us a chance to spend time with our families however as listed below they are returning to normal.

Fraternally Yours

Sir Knights & Ladies

We are all very busy at this time of the year, but remember the true meaning of Christmas “The Birth of Baby Jesus”.

Thanks to SK Howard Culligan for chairing our November business meeting.

We lost another Sir Knight Franz Ebner. He was always there when ever required. As an Assembly we showed our respect at his prayer service & mass of resurrection. Thanks to all those who attended, especially the Sir Knights from other Assemblies. Now Franz has Eternal Life. Let us keep Wally & family in our prayers at this most difficult time.

Everyone had a good time at the Christmas Party, sorry that we missed it. Thanks to those that stepped up & took over; Jean & Jeff Smith, and John Price.

Our Assembly will resume activities in January with a Euchre Party & Dinner Meeting.

I want to thank everyone for your prayers & kind words as Mary Lou recovers.

Mary Lou and myself wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Fraternally Yours
