Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight


Brother Knights,


The month of November is considered a month of remembrance and giving thanks. November starts with All Saints Day and All Soul Days, two days of remembrance of our saints and all our beloved family and friends that have passed away. To honor and celebrate our fallen Brother Knights, we will hold our Annual Memorial Mass on November 13th at St. Michael's church. Two days before our Memorial Mass is Veterans Day. As the name indicates, this day is to celebrate and honor all the veterans who have fought and served in every branch of the United States military. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every veteran that has risked their life for the service of our country. We have a few important dates for this month to consider. Our Memorial Mass will occur on Sunday, and at the end of this month, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. This is a wonderful holiday where we take the time to be with our families and friends and reconnect with them. The year keeps us all extremely busy, and sometimes it is difficult to get together with the people who love and care for you the most. Take this holiday and give thanks for all the things you have. This life is a gift, and we should be thankful that we were given such a wonderful gift.


Lastly, if you know of any Brother Knight not receiving our monthly Digest, please inform them of our Website, Union Knights Of Columbus #4504, and have them register.  This will ensure they receive all Council, Columbian Club, and Columbiaettes events and activities.


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.


Vivat Jesus
