To Council Members and their families:

The month of July marks the beginning of the 2010-2011 Year of the Knights of Columbus.  I am very proud to be part of the Knights of Columbus Council #12801.  Our Council has been singled out this year as being a very active and generous one.  With the secular temptations in the world today, I truly feel that we have to be strong loyal soldiers of Christ.

Unity

After making “Star Council” this past year, it is important for us to continue the momentum that we have established.  We will have two membership drives like we did last year, as well as a number of smaller gatherings to involve our fellow parishioners.  One of the ideas is to have a Family Night at the movies with popcorn and beverages.  One of the movies will be Champions of Faith featuring Mike Piazza and other Major League All Stars.

Charity

Charity does not consist of money alone.  As we begin this New Year, our treasury is not overflowing.  I suggest that we channel our efforts in volunteering our time in helping those who need it.   Information on people who need this help could be obtained at the Parish Office or through neighbors.  An example would be Van Service for seniors to attend Mass and also actions in helping the Food Pantry.

Fraternity

We will have many social gatherings this year.  We should make a point of making the rounds at meetings to ask how each Knight is doing, especially new members.  When a Knight is in need, help if you can.  Reach out to them if they are hospitalized or in need of a ride, job hunting, etc.  This action really impressed me when I joined the Council.

Patriotism

Be a good citizen by talking up our great country and letting our neighbors know how we stand by our good example. Pray for our troops and support their efforts as they fight for our rights to keep our Country strong and free.

A message from the Supreme Knight…

None Comments Off on A message from the Supreme Knight…

With Congress now back in session, I am writing to ask you to encourage Knights in your jurisdiction to continue to contact their Representative and Senators about the health care reform legislation. The Senate version of the bill currently under consideration by a joint House and Senate conference committee fails to maintain the long-standing policy against the federal funding of abortion and does not protect the conscience rights of those who refuse to participate in abortion. The U.S. bishops have called this bill “deficient” and have said that it should be opposed. Thanks to the special efforts of brother Knight Congressman Bart Stupak and a broad bi-partisan coalition of representatives, the House version of the bill maintains the policy against the federal funding of abortion.

It is not yet clear how the result in the special Senate election held in Massachusetts on Tuesday will impact health care reform legislation, but one course of action being considered is for the House to simply pass the Senate version. Time is of the essence because the negotiations on health care reform are happening now. It is crucial that every member of the House and Senate hear from us immediately so that the final bill will not mandate federal funding of abortion and will adequately protect conscience rights.

Please direct members to www.kofc.org which provides a quick and effective mechanism to contact Congress. We must prevent health care reform from becoming the largest expansion of abortion in our country since Roe v. Wade.
