Gentlemen of the 4th Degree
    According to Senior Marshal Herb Stacer the assignment at Ste. Anne in Detroit on July 23rd is canceled.  Herb said (at the Polish / American Festival) that the with the death of Msgr. Kohler, Ste. Anne Parish is in disarray.  His understanding is that the Novena Masses to St. Anne are not being held this year.  If things change I will let you know.

Grand Knight

Dear Brother Knights and Family members,

Vivat Jesus!

I would like to thank the Council Membership that elected the new officers for the 2016-2017 Administrative year. This group of men will have their own challenges to meet, some put forth by the Supreme Council, some by the State Council, and finally those set in motion by our own Council, a task that will be attained through the help and cooperation of our membership. Let us continue the mission that our Past Grand Knight Jim Wisniewski and his team set in motion. Soon our new Board of Officers will be meeting to plan the new Administrative year, so please take note of the calendar of events upcoming, and plan on being a part of the team. And let’s make this new Administrative Year as successful as the previous Administrative Year was.

CHANCELLOR’S NOTES

Brother Knights,

Please include my daughter, Rachel, her family and the baby that she is carrying in your prayers.

Jim Jaczkowski  

“IT’S a GIRL!!!   Her name is Jolie Renee Sobolic. I wanted her to have a happy and beautiful name. At just under 18 weeks gestation Jolie is a mighty girl, and has already beaten the odds. Our little girl has a very serious condition, and each day she is still here with us is a blessing.She has what the Doctors believe is Turner Syndrome, It comes with a wide spectrum of health issues. Many little ones don’t make it past their birth although there are the very small percentage that do. We take each day as it comes and trust that God knows the plan in the end.

Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.If you see me (us) it’s okay to share some love with Jolie. We want her to feel every bit of love this world has to offer her.” 

 Rachel (Jaczkowski) Sobolic

Knights of Columbus “BENEFITS NEWS”  

UPDATE YOUR BENEIFICIARIES! 

Sometimes it is easy to overlook the simplest of things.

Take, for example, the beneficiaries on your life insurance policies. If your policy was applied for and issued several years ago, it may very well be that the person you originally selected as the beneficiary is no longer the person you would want to receive the policy proceeds. If you bought the policy when you were single, for example, you may have named your parents as beneficiaries. If you have since married, your policies should be updated to reflect your spouse as beneficiary. Maybe you’ve had children since, who are not named on the policies.

Most people list a primary beneficiary, who is specifically designated as the first in priority to receive policy proceeds. We also encourage the naming of a contingent beneficiary, an alternate person designated to receive policy proceeds, usually in the event that the original beneficiary pre-deceases the insured.

I routinely call all of my policyholders for annual review appointments, usually near the anniversary date of your policy – that is, the date it was originally issued. One of the matters that I’ll discuss during this review is the status of your beneficiary designations. If they need updating, and they often do, I can complete the paperwork during that appointment.

I look forward to meeting with each of you to discuss your family’s needs.

ONLY HAVING INSURANCE “Through Work” DOESN’T WORK.

 

Only Having Insurance “Through Work” Doesn’t Work

Do you know anyone whose life or career has drastically changed during these years of economic downturn? It’s very likely that someone in your immediate or extended family or group of friends is facing financial uncertainty. Maybe there’s a possibility that you (or your spouse) could change employers, or even lose your job.

Too many people have often relied on group term life insurance as their only safety net. Often, this insurance is an employee benefit provided at low or no cost. The existence of this coverage might convince someone that personally-owned life insurance is not necessary.

But only having “through work” insurance can leave you and your family vulnerable. Most group life insurance policies are limited in amount, which may be tied to salary or some other benchmark. These numbers are often capped, and this cap may be dangerously low when compared to your family’s actual needs. In fact, a detailed needs analysis that evaluates your specific situation, will likely show that any employer-provided coverage falls short.

In addition, the amount of group insurance offered is almost always reduced, sometimes dramatically, when you retire. You could one day find yourself without coverage, and if your health has changed (which it will as you age), you might also find yourself unable to secure individual protection. At the very least, it will definitely be more expensive.

While group life insurance can help, it does not replace the need for individually owned life insurance. I’ll be happy to meet with you and provide a no-cost needs analysis, so you’ll know exactly where you stand.
