As we venture into the month of November, I would like to touch briefly on events that occurred in the month past. On October 20th and 21st, we had our Knights Recruitment/Information Drive within the stewardship weekend at St Cecilia’s church. We had a great display table set up in the hall and it was wonderful to see so many Brother Knights wearing their blue jackets attending to questions and promoting our council and order.  A special thank you to all.

Also in the same week, October 19th by request of council, my wife Juliette and I with Fr. Paul Raj and Fr. Henry Rosenbaum attended the 19th Annual Bishop’s Dinner honouring our Calgary Bishop William T. McGrattan. The event was held at the Telus Convention Centre downtown and celebrated Catholic Education and Programs. The event was well attended and musical entertainment was provided by a number of school bands.

On the evening of October 22nd, Council 4878 showed it’s Service strength once again and on a moments notice hosted the monthly Calgary Chapter meeting, as the chosen host for the month was unable to.  A big thanks to Bro. Dan Barth and wife Elaine for preparing and catering a suburb  pre meeting dinner social. Thank you Bro. Frank Gerritsen for setup and cleanup  and Bro. Dave Masse for helping with serving.

Executive and general meetings will be held at 6:30 and 7:30 PM respectively on Monday, November 5th 2018. A reminder to all that on November 8th at 7:00 PM we have the memorial mass at Sacred Heart Church honouring our deceased brothers who died this past year. Please try to attend. As usual, hope to see you at the general meeting, as we have much to discuss.

God bless and Vivat Jesu
