We need more new members and your help in making this a successful event for the incoming members. More information will follow in September Meeting.

Breakfasts at St. Rene’s will be starting in September. We usually host these breakfasts on the second Sunday of the month. We need your help to make this successful. They start at 7:00 AM and are usually finished by 1:00 PM. It’s a great chance to meet fellow Catholics and to work with your brother Knights.

The State had some priest’s vestments from the bicentennial year that they were going to dispose of. St. Nick’s made a suggestion of having them donated to the Church in Tanzania. I made a trip to Lincoln Park to pick them up and delivered them to Father Ben so he could take them with him. Hopefully he will have pictures to share with us and the Columbian magazine when he returns.

The theme of the recent Diocesan Leadership Conference, which several of our council officers attended, was entitled “Focus the Flame”. The first speaker explained its meaning by stating that the flame alluded to the tongues of fire that the apostles received at Pentecost. To focus the flame meant bringing the Flame of the Holy Spirit to Catholic men to provide an avenue for them to grow closer to God through prayer and Faith in Action.

In a November 2013 letter by Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, he cited Pope Francis’ call for all the lay members of the church to bring the gospel message of loving outreach to the widows, orphans, even those most shunned and marginalized, with the love and healing of the spirit of Christ himself.

Let us all continue to ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit to direct us this year in the programs we choose to do. Let our motive be to bring Christ’s presence to those in need. Our actions must be preceded by staying close to Christ especially through Holy Mass, Confession, Eucharistic adoration and private prayer.

Whatever time you can volunteer would be greatly appreciated. If enough guy’s sign up then it could be every other week or monthly it all depends on how many sign up to help protect the children from possible accidents in the parking lot as cars are trying to drop off and pickup children.
