St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares

of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the

power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of

souls.    Amen.

Dear Brothers, Officers, Families, Parishioners, and all others who find their way to this article;


From The Grand Knight;


   November is dedicated to the remembrance of all souls.  Four of our Council members passed away this year - Mark McComb, Mark Semaan, Joe Marrone and Roy Prizgint.  Their names were added to the plaques at Sacred Heart Major Seminary displaying all of the Knights who have passed in our region.  Please keep our brothers, their families and all the departed in your prayers. Several of our Brothers are having health problems, some of you may know of them, some may not.  Please pray for the sick of our Council.

  I want to thank all of you for working hard in our attempt to defeat Proposal 3.  I hope you all exercised your right to vote on this issue. It is unfortunate our efforts appear not to be enough to have defeated this dangerous legislation. It has been tiring and challenging for all. However, our work is not done.  We must stand up and continue to defend the vulnerable and support those mothers to be, new mothers and families in need.  We cannot remain silent and shy away from our responsibilities as a Catholic.  We need to pray to God for his mercy, forgiveness and strength to remain devoted to the defense of the unborn.

  Brothers, the Knights continue their mission because of your active participation to do charity, to bring together the men of the church and to celebrate fraternal brotherhood.  Please consider joining your brother Knights in one of the events we sponsor throughout the year.  If you only have one hour, there is a ministry that would benefit from your participation. There are many activities the Knights are involved in that need your participation.  St. Al’s Sandwich Ministry, Eucharistic Adoration, Poker, Jingo, the Annual Picnic, these are just a few you can participate in and help our Council grow.   If you joined the Knights of Columbus to help others and grow in your faith, now is the time to start down that path.  If you want to be more involved and aren’t sure where your help is needed, please contact me.

  Our annual Christmas Party will take the place of our December Council meeting and be held Friday, December 16th in the Carlos Acutis room, and will be catered by Zio’s.  This is an open event sponsored by the council. EVERYONE, including family, friends and those whom might think about becoming a Knight are invited. Please contact Ralph Engler to reserve your place for an evening of Fraternity, Good Food, and Entertainment. We are asking a donation of socks for the less fortunate when you come. Please bring an appetite.

  Lastly, if there is something you would like to see, hear or bring up at any of our Council meetings, please talk to me.  I need your suggestions.  A few of you have already come forward and I appreciate that.  I want to make the meetings worth your time.  If you know of a Brother Knight or family in the Parish that deserves recognition, please pass the information to me. Thank you for coming to the meetings and all that you do.
