Tom-

 

Yes, I am taking care of the beverages for both the Memorial Mass and the Degree,  however when I brought the subject up in regards to beer, Dennis said we would have to give it away albeit we could have a donation jar,  nevertheless because of the tight restriction on what we can charge and probably only breakeven he did not want to incur more expense.

 

I am going to pickup soda and h2o.

 

I am going to send out a volunteer request email, I know some have already i.e. Nick, Richard, you, etc… however do you need help  in your area specifically?

Doug, 

Were you taking care of beverages for this weekend for the degree?

 

Was just thinking: should we reconsider beer?

 

Just a thought.

Recruiting Weekend for the Knights

Brothers,
      This weekend, Nov 16 – 17 after all of the Masses, we will be holding our "Ministry" weekend to recruit/introduce prospective members to what the K of C does.  We need help after all of the Masses to direct prospective members and to answer questions.  To assist with this process, we will have numerous signs with a "Did You Know…?" theme, banners and a new three ring binder with pictures and verbiage regarding our many and varied events, hours of service and charity $$$ donations.
      Please help – more importantly – bring us a prospect or 3…perhaps a neighbor, a friend, a relative or the gentleman sitting next to you in church.   We need 24 new members in the next 6 months to meet our state goal.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
 
Vivat Jesus,

Loss of a long time Brother/Sir Knight

Brothers,
               The funeral arrangements have been finalized for Brother/Sir Knight John Maloney who passed into God's care this past Thursday.   As I am not as good with words as FN Bob LaCroix, I will quote him. "John was a sweet, kind, gentle man who was a friend to all who had the chance to know him.  He was a Life Member of the Knights of Columbus , a founding member of Council 10062 and a Sir Knight for more than 53 years. I'm sure John will enter into God's Heavenly Kingdom with the same quiet smile with which he always entered the Knights meetings.
               The viewing will be on Wednesday November from 5 – 8 PM. Rosary will be at 7:00PM at Carr Tenney Funeral Home at 2621 S. Rural Rd (NE corner of Rural and Alameda), Tempe, AZ. 
               The funeral Mass will be at St. Benedict's at 2:00 PM on Thursday 11/14.  There will be a chalice ceremony befitting a Sir Knight's passing at the family's request.  If you can arrange to be at one or other of these events to show our love and respect for our Brother, please plan to be.
 
Vivat Jesus,

Second Airing of New Pope Francis Documentary

Dear Brother Knight,

This coming Sunday, Nov. 3, the Knights of Columbus-produced documentary on Pope Francis will again be aired on national television. It will be broadcast on CNBC at 6-7 p.m. Eastern (3-4 p.m. Pacific).

The film, Francis: The Pope from the New World, features interviews with Pope Francis' friends and associates in Argentina, as well as with American commentators such as Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and members of the hierarchy, including Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop Charles Chaput and Archbishop José Gomez.  

The world has been fascinated by our new Holy Father, but many people still do not fully know the man who is now our pope. This film introduces viewers to Jorge Mario Bergoglio — the man who became Pope Francis — and his life story, from his childhood and patronage of his local soccer team to his vocation and time as a priest, bishop and then cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires.

As Knights, standing in solidarity with our Holy Father, it is not only important that we know him but that we help others to know him, and that we support him in the work of the New Evangelization. If we follow Pope Francis' charitable witness, we have the opportunity to change the world.

If you have not already done so, please make the time to watch this inspiring documentary and invite others you know to also view it.

For more information on the film, visit PopeFrancisDocumentary.com.
