Grand Knight’s Message
is getting into full swing as we enter into October. October has been designated an awareness
month for many causes such as Breast Cancer, Fire Prevention, and Respect
Life. As Catholics it is the month of
the Holy Rosary. As Supreme Chaplain Bishop William E. Lori states “In the rosary, Mary
leads us to her son as we meditate on the mysteries of salvation.” As Knights, you received the rosary upon
joining. Let us remember to pray to
help guide us with our decisions and actions.
It has been an exciting several months with all the
activity with council and club. We
have several upcoming annual and new events that will need our support to be
successful. If you are looking to
help, assist, participate please reach out to the chairperson or myself.
Birthright Rose Drive will be held
October 17th and 18th. Since 1978 the Knights
of Columbus members, their families and friends have distributed silk roses
and accepted donations for our local Birthright Chapter.
essence of Birthright is love. Birthright is unique and committed to
offering free, non-judgmental help to women facing unplanned pregnancies.
Birthright offers love, hope and support to each woman, to help her make a
realistic plan for her future and the future of her unborn child.
