Greetings Brothers,

This month was a time of remembrance. On November 7th, we honoured our deceased brothers who passed away this year in a Memorial Mass at St. Bonaventure Parish. It was well attended by councils within the Calgary chapter. I would have, however, liked more of our council members to have  attended. We had five of our Brothers pass away this year: Don Johnson, David Fenton, Ken Dorscher, William (Monte) Erickson and Gordon Henchall. May they all rest in peace.

November 11th at 11:00am, we honoured those who fought and perished in war with a Remembrance Day mass hosted by the council at St. Cecilia’s Church. Refreshments were served afterwards.

Saturday, November 16th, from 9:00am to 2:00 PM Brothers Frank Gerritsen, Dan Barth and I along with many other Brothers from councils within the Calgary Chapter helped with distributing coats to less fortunate families and children in the Bishop Kidd Junior High School area.   Our contribution to the program was two boxes of coats.

Date to note: December 16th is our Council Christmas party. This year it will be a catered turkey dinner.  Pricing for tickets will be decided at the December meeting on Monday December 2nd.  I will keep you posted.

Our Executive meeting will be held as usual at 6:30 pm in the Auditorium on the first Monday of the month (December 2nd) followed by our general meeting at 7:30 pm in our council chambers. All members please try to attend our general meetings. Your input is important to the growth and development of present and future programs so that we will continue to be a relevant supporting force within our parish and communities and keep our council thriving well into the future. That being said,

May God bless you and the many works of the Knights of Columbus, and illuminate your paths as ambassadors to his kingdom.
