Message from your Chaplain


Dear Brother Knights,

By the time you receive this bulletin, we will be approaching the great feast of Pentecost.  This will end the season of Easter in the Church.  On Pentecost, we will celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation in our cluster at 2:00 p.m.  on May 15.  I want to thank you for the honour guard that you will supply at this celebration.

I also want to thank you for all that you did for Deacon Mark Stagg and his family at the time of his death and funeral.  I know that arranging your involvement at the visitation took a lot of time on your part.  I also want to thank you for the honour guard that you provided at his funeral mass.  Both added dignity to the occasion.

Thank you also for supporting the Pro-Life Movement with Rose Sunday on Mother’s Day.  This is a demonstrative way of showing that we are against abortion.  Keep up the good work.

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, I hope that you are able to take advantage of this and get some rest.

Thank you again

Your Chaplain

Fr. Dick Bester

Grand Knight’s Message


Dear Brother Knights & Ladies:

As I am writing this message we just celebrated Christ’s Ascension into Heaven, after completing his father’s will to save mankind by his death & resurrection.

We also celebrated Mother’s Day. On behalf of all our “Brothers” I want to thank all the Mothers who work tirelessly for our families. In conjunction with this, we held our Right to Life Drive. Thanks to the brothers that manned the “Rose Sunday Boxes” at the church doors. All proceeds are given to Stratford Right to Life.

I also want to again thank the Brothers that worked hard to make our Past Grand Knight’s Dinner & St. Joseph’s Restoration Fund a success.

Our Lord called his faithful servant Deacon Mark Stagg home. The work he did for our community, when his health permitted, was ever so much appreciated. Other Brothers also lost loved ones. Know that our thoughts and prayers are for you & your family at this most stressful time.

For Brothers and family members with health issues we offer daily prayers that you find solace and comfort through our lord.

Grand Knight

John J. Price
