Brother Knight’s:

Although February has been a short month, we have been active starting with the Mary Immaculate statue at the Sunday 9 and 11 AM masses on February 3rd at which the Knights participated. We also had a fine attendance of 12 of our council’s Knights who attended Padre Night in Airdrie on February 7th and shared a special evening with Bishop Henry and the clergy.

Just to let you know Bishop Henry has endorsed the campaign a few days later on February 12th, 2013. “Since the 1988 ruling in Regina v. Morgentaler, Canada has had no abortion law. Canadian history has shown that we make the law (or seek justice) in our image and likeness where there is no external standard, and worse still, the rationale for having an abortion multiplies. This is intolerable. It is time for everyone to support the campaign and goals of”.

We also helped the CWL with the Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser on February 9th. Thanks to Bros. Dan, Henry and our Deputy GK Frank for help in the kitchen the day before. The next day we organized parish breakfasts to commemorate with World Day of the Sick. Thanks to you Knights and ladies who helped in the kitchen and set up of the chairs on both days.

On February 12th Leo Bunz and James O’Dell with their Ladies Mary and Jenny, represented our council at Ecole St. Cecilia’s at their Shrove Tuesday Pancake breakfast. This is a wonderful opportunity to show our support for this pre-Lenten event and the students were most appreciative.

Our council hosted the Major Degree on February 23rd at St. Cecilia’s for our District Deputy Ricky Finzel. We had our 3 candidates Brothers Ric McIver and father and son Kim and Steven Dorscher attending their exemplification along with 33 other Knights. Thanks to you Knights for your support and help.

We will be planning a Pro-Serve meeting sometime in March and you will be advised of the date. We encourage more Brother Knights to take the course and be a part of the Fund Raising Project.

Please continue to pray for our brothers Dave, Peter and Vital as they recover from major surgery.

I wish all my Brother Knights and families a prayerful and spiritual Lent and on behalf of Heidi and me, a very joyous and Happy Easter.

Vivat Jesus,
Kevin Lopresti, G.K.
