Dear Brother Knights & Ladies:
As I am writing this message we are entering the “Easter Triduum” a time to reflect on the passion and death of Jesus Christ only to rise on Easter the greatest feast in our Liturgical Year.
As Christians we are still being challenged in our faith. One of these challenges is Physician Assisted Death.
Our cluster is holding a day of Palliative Care Prayer at Immaculate Conception Church on Thur. May 4th starting with the 8 a.m. Mass. Please make an effort to participate. The Knights will lead in the Rosary which will be at 11 a.m., one of many prayers selected for this day. Also we will have some speakers give us a talk on this subject. Refer to an upcoming church bulletin for more details.
Deacon Ross Campbell, a member of our council, will be ordained to the Priesthood on May 6th. He will be celebrating the 5 a.m. Mass on Sat. May 13 at Immaculate Conception Church with a reception and presentations following in the parish hall. I urge you to attend. It is not often that we get a chance to partake in something as wonderful as this.
Rose Sunday will be weekend of May 13 & 14. The Knights will be at the church doors. Proceeds go to support our local Stratford and District Right to Life.
Once again we will be preparing & serving food at the Rely Lay for Life on Friday June 2nd. Please keep this date open to assist. Harry Visser is our contact person.
Harry Visser has some open dates in December for Hall Rentals. Any members wanting to rent hall contact Harry.
Our next Boston Pizza Night is Wed. May 10th. Come out & support. Proceeds are for Sick Kids.
Our new field agent Dev (Dave) Bwagwat was at our last council meeting and spoke. His intentions are to partake in our fund raising events & get to know members & their family. He commented on how vibrant our social is following the meeting.
Donna and myself wish everyone a holy and joyous Easter.
Your Grand Knight
John J. Price
