Did You Know?

My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,

I would again to like to start this month’s message by thanking everyone who made this year’s PGK  dinner the success that it was. Close to 80 people were in attendance to honor our newest Past Grand Knight, Steve Nagy. Our resident chef Frank Santangelo again cooked up a great meal and stands out for special praise. Many other brothers and Columbiettes worked hard to make a great evening. To all of them a big thank you is in order. Once again they showed what happens when we pull together to create an event.

A well attended 1st degree was held on October 15. It was gratifying to see some long time members come out to attend the degree. It is important for the new brothers to feel welcomed by the long-timers. We have 2nd and 3rd degrees scheduled for November and I hope to see many brothers come out for these degrees. It is a good idea for long time members to come and be reminded of the first three principles of our order, charity, unity and fraternity.

Speaking of degrees four members of Union Council took their 4th degree on October 19. It is great to see the ranks of JFK Assembly filling out. The Color Corps of JFK Assembly will be escorting the celebrant at our annual deceased members mass at 9:00 AM at St. Michael’s on November 2. Please come out and pray for our deceased brothers.

Union Council is selling “Keep Christ in Christmas” car magnets. They display a Nativity scene with the words Keep Christ in Christmas prominently shown in black letters on a white background. They are available for $5 a piece.  All the profits from the sales will go to our Citizens with Intellectual Disabilities Fund. 200 were purchased and close to 50 have already been sold. Don’t miss out on helping spread the message of Christmas and help a worthy cause at the same time. They will be available at Council events and at the bar.


Please also remember that the Columbiettes and Council hold family dinners at the Council hall on the third Thursday of every month at 6:30. For $8 a person ($6 for children and seniors) you’ll get a delicious multi-course dinner and have an opportunity to meet your brothers and their families. And the profits go to a worthy cause.

Clearly there is much happening at Union Council. Please keep up the good work by supporting our events.

Vivat Jesus
