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

 

From The Grand Knight;

 

  Dear Brother Knights, Family, Friends and Parish members.

  July 1, 2021, marked the beginning of our new

fiscal year.  For the most part, the officer positions have remained the same.  We do have one major change in that we say thank you and farewell our outgoing District Deputy, Jason Meyer.  We now welcome the new incoming District Deputy, Mike Cousins. 

  While the last year was quite challenging due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, the St. Kieran’s

Knights of Columbus, Council 13983 managed to achieve “STAR COUNCIL” status as one of the top performing councils in the state/country. An accomplishment only possible due to the hard work and dedication of the men in our council.  Our council recognized Worthy Brother Ronald Koscierzynski as the “Knight of the Year,” for all his hard work and dedication.  Additionally, Walter and Beverly Jakubowski were recognized as the “Family of

the Year,” for all that they do, not only for the Council, but for the parish and the community. 

  As we exit from the pandemic lockdown, we are looking forward to holding some of our traditional fundraiser’s along with some new ones.  In October, we hope to start selling raffle tickets for 2 nativity scenes that the Knights will be making, with the drawing being at the end of November.  We will also be selling our crosses as we started just before this past Easter.  Our Fall MI-Drive (Tootsie Roll) fundraiser will be held the weekend of October 8th, 9th, and 10th.  Knights will be at locations around the community and at all the masses that weekend.  Finally, we look to hold the annual JINGO event next April once again.  This has always been a big event for us, so please keep an eye out for further details for that. 

  There has never been more need or a better time for the good Catholic Men of our community to join our team and belong to something bigger!  As the saying goes, YOU were born a MAN, YOU became a Knight!

  Scheduled upcoming events that you and your family can participate in include the Parish Picnic, September 12th following the 11:30 Mass.  This will be in addition to activities occurring at the parish on the preceding Friday and Saturday. We will need many volunteers to assist with this event and to make it better than ever.  See any Knight or Usher for details.

  Monday, October 11, 2021, is Columbus Day.  The Knights will be celebrating our “Corporate Communion” at the 7:00 pm Mass that evening.

  I want to take this time to thank my fellow Knights for the support that have giving me over the past year.  I

especially want to thank Father Joe Mallia and all the staff at St. Kieran for all the support and assistance they have provided.  I may be contacted at GK13983@gmail.com.

 

 

VIVAT JESUS!
