The Golf Tournament is this Saturday! If you have not turned in your registration forms, please do so by 5:00PM tomorrow. We need to get a count to the golf course!

3 updates

Brothers,
 
1)      Council General Meeting is this Thursday 9/5 at 7:00 PM
2)      Attached Family Rosary Hike flyer
3)     The AZ Rosary Celebration is rapidly approaching us, and this year we are projecting a larger crowd than usual to honor Our Lady.  With this in mind we need Usher.  Will you be an Usher? I ask all Ushers to attend an important training seminar for Phoenix venue Ushers on September 7, 2013 from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 p.m. To be held at SS Saints Simon and Jude Cathedral in the St. Bridget Room. 
 
It has been bought to our attention that some training is required.  We will go over First Aid, security and crowd control. 
 
Please plan to attend this meeting.
 
Remember, anyone can be an Usher (don't have to be a Knight), we are equal opportunity volunteers!
