Dear Bro. Knights

The month of November is both the month of God’s Glory which shines forth through all the Saints and the month of God’s merciful forgiveness for our souls for whom we pray and offer Masses. It is also a gentle reminder to all of us that our bodies and souls are to be kept pure and holy acceptable before God. Take care of your body and soul.

As a Knight we too pay a great tribute and respect for all the great people who scarified their lives for our county. Do not forget those people who scarified their lives for every one of us: like our family members and great knights.

May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.




Greetings Brother Knights,

It is unfortunate to begin my report on such a sad note, however, we had to say goodbye to Brother Sutton on Saturday the 15th. of October with a very beautiful Funeral Mass. Sutton was a very new Knight and a Knight who had intended to complete his proserve and start getting involved in the volunteering aspect of the K of C. His life was taken far too soon and he will be sorrowly missed. Please keep Sutton and his family in your prayers. On October the 16th, we also said goodbye to another Brother Knight in the name of Deacon Michael. He is a member of our Council and we hope he will continue to be while his responsibilities take him to St. Bernadette Church in Riverbend. We extend our best wishes to Brother Michael and his family as their journey takes them in another direction. May GOD be with them.

On Monday the 17th of October, we had our Open House with the intent of bringing in more potential Knights, and while we had about 12 Knights and some wives in attendance, we unfortunately had no one attend who was interested in becoming a Knight. Thank you to all who did attend.

Stewardship Sunday on October 30th, was another opportunity to interest parishioners in becoming Knights and we did have 3 gentlemen sign our form.

Thank you Brothers for all those who helped out with the football games. Our last game will be the Western Final and that game starts at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday the 20th of November. Please let me know if you can help out for that last home football game of the season. Our next Council meeting is November the 7th.

Thank you Brothers,
Dave Allen Grand Knight
