Grand Knight August 2022 Message

Brothers,

 

The end of July is upon us and August is knocking at our door. It's been a long hot month and at least 2 more to go. On the bright side, Christmas will be here in about 150 days!!

 

The month of July was fairly quiet for us. We lost a great person

and Brother Knight, Frank Orofino. Thank you to all that made the Mass

and the Celebration of Life afterward. Linda was very pleased with the Knight's turn out and she expressed how much he enjoyed our company. May he rest in peace

 

At our officer meeting, we tied to come up with a budget to fund some ideas (bibles for Baptism's, rosary give away as a recruitment incentive, into the Breach retreat etc.) All really good ideas but due to limited income we will have to choose wisely. The selling of the raffle tickets will help cover some of the expense, but I need to have 20 books completed to send to the State for our profit.

 

I ask that if you have a book, please try to get it to me quickly.

.

Don't' for get our corporate Mass for July is this Sunday the 31st 

 

 In August it will be the 28th. Also remember the 15th (Monday) is the Feast of the Assumption which is a Holy Day of Obligation. This Holy day marks the occasion of the Virgin Mary's bodily ascent to heaven

 

We are still looking for program directors and NEW members, Let's try and get 4 members to join us before the end of 2022

 

Dues--membership notices were sent out in June If you have not received one or if you have, please make you payment. Contact F/S Alfredo Rivera

 

Moving Forward, at the end of this fraternal year, there will be openings for Grand Knight, Deputy Grand Knight and Financial Treasurer. Think about moving up in the organization, reach out to us so we can work with you and prepare you for the position


Grand Knight
