A message from our Grand Knight...

3 Oct 2019

Brother Knights,

Thank you all for your attendance in last night’s monthly business meeting.    A few takeaways from the night…

  1. The Holy Spirit was present.   Deacon Jim won both the 50/50 and the carryover drawing.   $80+ and $180+.   Deacon Jim donated both back!!!   Thank you and God Bless!!!   What a great conclusion to our open discussion on how to fund CCD and the middle east mission.   To see over $360 appear immediately was amazing.

  2. We agreed to doing a bucket collection to help fund special needs at CCD, Middle East, and Our Lady of Confidence.  Deacon Jim’s and Tim Powell’s donations got us started.  Mark Majdosz offered to lead the initiative.   The focus is on special needs children… specifically at our own CCD school, the Middle East Mission, and Our Lady of Confidence.   I have seen a few hundred Catholics go to Aunt Judy’s on Saturday morning and Sunday morning after Mass.   …most all OLMC members.   We could raise $5 per patron in under 3 hours equaling easily $500.    Bill and Emma will gladly do what they do best. 

  3. We voted to purchase 5 coat boxes.  We have 1 left over from last year. …so that will total 6.   3 will be used for OLMC and 3 for St Roberts.  Deacon Jim to follow up with St Vincent de Paul Society.   Rob Hessler to speak with FEAST.    Donors are welcome to donate to the mission. 

  4. Key dates:
    1. Food drive tomorrow 10/4 Weis Market – 9:30am
    2. Legacy of Life Bottle Drive – OLMC after all Masses this weekend.   Meet before Mass in narthex to identify doors to cover.

2019 golf outing a great success!

Thanks to all involved with our 2019 golf outing. The day was a great success and provided lots of opportunity for fun and fellowship while also generating over $18,000 for the causes we support. This could not happen without the work of the golf committee, many volunteers, sponsors, and golfers.
