April 2020 Donations for the Little Sisters of the Poor

Brothers, I hope this email finds you safe and well.

Just a quick note to recognize Council Brothers Augie Keller, Gene Kastelberg, Mike Kehoe, Jeff Wolfe, Anthony Mehfoud, Rick and Brian Witty, Ron Paquette  Kevin Dubina, Steve Oswald, and Greg Stivers for spending time away from their families to collect food, supplies, and financial donations for the Little Sisters of the Poor earlier today.  As you can see from the picture below, they collected a nice supply of needed food, beverages, and cleaning materials for the Little Sisters, and I hear plenty of checks and gift certificates were donated as well.

In addition, I’d like to personally thank Greg for offering the team use of his trailer to transport these items to the Little Sisters and Bruce Slough and Sean Cox for their amazing leadership of this effort.

I’m sure these donations will serve the Little Sisters well over the coming weeks and ask that you please keep them in your prayers.

Vivat Jesus!    Leahey

Online Exemplification Ceremony April 16th

Hello, Brothers.  I hope this message finds you safe and well.

On Thursday, April 16th, the Knights of Columbus will host an Online Exemplification Ceremony that will allow all Knights that have not yet achieved their 3rd Degree to immediately progress to that level.  This includes newly-joined Knights as well as all Brothers that are currently 1st or 2nd Degree Knights.

As we all seek to abide to the rules of staying at home during this time of COVID-19, this is an excellent opportunity for each of you seeking to become a 3rd Degree Knight to do so in a single ceremony that can be attended from the comfort of your home.   If you are not yet a 3rd Degree Knight, I urge you to reserve time on your calendar for 8:00 p.m., Thursday, April 16th, to attend this Online Exemplification.  

More information will be forthcoming very soon on how to register for this unique event, so please keep an eye out for a communication from me.

In the meantime, please let me know if you have immediate questions.

Fraternally,

Bart Leahey, Grand Knight
