“I’m the Guy” (Author Unknown)

 

I’m the guy who asked to join your organization.

  I’m the guy who paid his dues to join.

I’m the guy who stood up in front of you and promised to be faithful and loyal.

  I’m the guy who came to your meeting and no one paid attention to.

I tried several times to be friends, but they all had their own buddies to talk and sit next to.

  I sat down several times, but no one paid attention to me.

I hoped very much that someone would have asked me to take part in a fundraising project

or something, but no one saw my efforts when I volunteered.

  I missed a few meetings after I joined because I was sick and couldn’t be there, and no one

  asked me at the next meeting where I had been.

I guess it didn’t matter very much to others whether I was there or not.

  The next meeting, I decided to stay home and watch TV.

The following meeting, I attended, but no one asked me where I was for the last meeting.

  You might say I’m a good guy or a “good family man” who holds a responsible job who loves

   his community and country.

You know who I am? THE GUY WHO NEVER CAME BACK!

   It amuses me to think the heads of organizations and the members discuss WHY the organization

    is losing members.

It amuses me to think that they spend so much time looking for NEW members when I was there

all the time.

  All they needed to do was to make me feel needed, wanted and WELCOME!!

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

 

           As we look forward to spring and Easter, we also look forward to renewal. The Knights continue to accomplish the goals of the Council, which are to take care of each other, the Parish, and the Community.  On January 29th, the Knights, along with assistance from parish staff and members, hosted a “Chili Cook-off and Square Dance” event.  This was a great success with about 175 people in attendance.  A great time was had by all.

        We are looking forward to several events in the next few months. The Knights are hosting a St. Joseph Pilgrim Icon viewing, in the parish’s St. Francis of Assisi chapel. The purpose of the Icon is to spread devotion to St. Joseph, pray for the courage to standup and carry out our mission of protecting, defending, and raising future generations. The Icon of St. Joseph holding the Child Jesus is a reproduction of a painting done by Elizabeth Bergeron, based on a drawing by famed iconographer Alexander Sobolev. The viewing times are Wednesday March 16, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Thursday March 17, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Friday March 18, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and Saturday, March 19, 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM and 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. A prayer service will begin at 7:00 PM on Saturday, March 19 in the main sanctuary.

       St. Kieran Knights of Columbus will have a limited supply of Lenten Crosses available after Masses later this month. The largest one has dimensions of 15"wide x 17"long ($110.00) and the smaller one is 4" wide x 8" long ($20.00). Also, a limited supply of the Wooden Lawn Crosses we had in 2021 will be available ($18.00) each. Proceeds will again be used to support Seminarians who are enrolled at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. 

        The Knights will be sponsoring Coffee and Donuts following all Masses on March 27th.

       The Knights will once again be participating in the “MI-Drive,” aka the “Tootsie Roll drive,” on April 8, 9, and 10.  Knights will be present following all the Masses and will be outside some of the local business establishments that weekend as well. The money raised is donated to several charity organizations that care for children with mental impairments. 

       And after a two-year hiatus, the very popular JINGO event will be held on Thursday, April 28th at the Palazzo Grande Banquet Center.  This event is sponsored by the St. Kieran’s Usher’s and the Knights.

       Our membership continues to grow, even in the mist of this pandemic.  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!

       I want to take this time to thank my fellow Knights for their continued hard work and dedication.  They are good men and an inspiration.  I may be contacted at GK13983@gmail.com.

 

            VIVAT JESUS!
