CHILI‐COOK OFF
Anyone that thinks they have a good chili recipe is asked to bring a crack pot full of their chili to St Rene’s on February
3, 2018 after the 4:00 PM Mass. They can drop it off in the social hall before Mass. We are giving awards for the following
categories:
1. The best tasting chili!
2. The most unusual chili!
3. The hottest chili!
When you drop your chili off for judging please let us know what categories you want to be put in. if you think you have
the hottest chili please advise us so we can warn the people before they taste it. For unusual it can be made from wild
game such as bear, buffalo, deer, etc., but you have to tell us what makes it unusual.
The way the contest will be judged is by the parishioners of St. Rene. After 4:00PM mass they may come and be a judge
by buying 3 tickets for $3.00/person. The tickets will be different colors. They will have one vote in each category. They
samples of the chili will be served by the Youth Ministry Group. You will be given a small sample of each chili for judging.
Once you have determined you choices you can place the tickets in the appropriate voting container by the chili you
select. Once everyone has had a chance to taste and vote, the votes will be counted and the awards will be presented.
We will be offering Hot Dogs ($1/ea.), Coney Dogs ($1.25/ea.), French Fries ($1/serving) and pop (&1/ea.) for sale. The
profits from this will go to the St. Rene’s Men’s Club and the Youth Ministry Group.
So if you have a favorite Chili Recipe please make some for us. If you do not want to cook then please be a judge. It will be a fun evening. Everyone is welcome.

GRAND KNIGHT REPORT

Vivat Jesus

To all my Brother Knights and their Families, I wish you all a Happy New Year with
Great Health and Prosperity. 2018 starts the second half of our Administrative Year with
continued challenges, in our support of the Right to Life Movement, Feeding the Homeless,
Helping the Mentally Impaired, and Supporting our Domestic Church, Priest, and
Vocations. Our efforts in the first six months, tells me that we as a Council are quite capable
of meeting these challenges.
But our biggest challenge has been our ability to grow our Council, which is the Life Blood of our Order. We
have to realize that if we do not replace ourselves, then the challenges become harder to accomplish. Therefore,
I ask my fellow Brother Knights to join me in the effort to increase our Membership, and ask a Fellow
Practical Catholic Gentleman to join our Order, and with this simple request make our challenges easier to accomplish.
In addition, for those Brother Knights that have not been active or participated in our challenges, please consider
making 2018 the Year that all changes.

God Bless
Tom Starynchak

Brother Knights: Vivat Jesus!

I extend to all Brother Knights and their Families best wishes and blessings for the year 2018.

of January 2018 and payments received) I will submit the orders to E.A. Graphics for production.
If you miss this opportunity to order, it may be some time before we can accumulate the minimum of 12 items to avoid a special set up charge.
A special thank you for those working the Catechism Traffic Control. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
If you have any questions bring them up at the above listed meetings or call me at 248-224-1132.
