GRAND KNIGHT REPORT

Vivat Jesus

What a time to be a member of St Nicholas Council # 7011 , let alone being a member of Knights of Columbus. We make things happen within our church community , by taking on significant projects that have benefited that community , and with each project we have had success and in the process made a difference , isn’t that what it’s all about. Many of our members participate in each of these projects, but many do not, so you have to ask yourself why is that, what is the catalyst that motivates those that do not participate. I have always said give me 24hrs of your time in a given year any more than that is on you, that is one day, surely, each of us has that much time to give. We our Evangelist of our faith, and through our action we make things happen. So please take the time with us and help us continue the good work we do for our church community and the community we live in , the decision is on you , don’t just be a dues paying member , be the member that helps make a difference and you will be surprised as to the impact that will make. With the fact that we our 11 months in to this administrative year our work is not finished. As of June 23rd 2018 we will be embarking on a major project of which I need all members on board , that project is a fund raising effort to raise funds significantly for our Charitable Causes , Right to Life , Feeding the Homeless, Helping those with Intellectual Disabilities and Vocations. The project is our reverse raffle and all members are being asked to participate, so if you are one of those members that have not participated in previous projects, then this the time to step up to the plate and help with the success of this event. Tickets will be available at our next business meeting Thursday 05/03/18 @ 7:00PM plan on being there and help make a difference.

God Bless
