Rosary Hike

Wednesday, October 29, 2014




Brothers-
 
The weather forecast for this Saturday:
 
Nov 1
Partly Cloudy
80°FHigh / 60°F Low
Partly Cloudy
Chance of rain: 0%
Wind: SSW at 12 mph
Humidity: 45%
UV Index: 5 - Moderate
Sunrise: 6:47 am
 
What a great day  to start off with a hike, more specifically a "Family Rosary Hike"  featuring our very own Fr. Rafael!  The hike starts right after the 8:15 AM Mass, gathering in the east parking lot.  Now that the weather has cooled, should be about 70 degrees at start time, so come one come all, bring the family, the neighbors (they don't have to belong to Corpus Christi, they don't even have to be Catholic).  The hike will last about 2 hours, with a stop about halfway through to hear a reflection from Father!
 
For more details, take a glance at the attached flyer, hope to see you there! 
 
Vivat  Jesus!

p.s. If you're looking for a reason to get a out, clear your head and  little exercise, think about it as being a warm-up for the "Texas Hold'em" later that day at  6PM.  Get your exercise in the morning so that you are ready for Texas Hold'em in the evening!

Membership drive weekend

Friday, October 24, 2014



Brothers-

Father Chad has agreed to let our council conduct a membership drive the weekend of  November 8&9. We will be able to give a 2-3 minute speech at each Mass, and be in the courtyard after each Mass.

I would like to ask for volunteers to speak at each Mass. The speach would consist of scripted message and then a personal witness as to how being a member of the Knights has affected you.  Please contact me if you would be interested and what Mass(s) you would like to speak at!

Everyone else, please plan to wear your shirt and/or badge and be in the courtyard after the Mass you attend.  Last year this format yielded many inquires, positive feedback and great new members.

Vivat Jesus!

I spoke to Dave last Sunday but I was hoping to get just a few volunteers for Saturday's Fall Festival.
 
Just need 2 - 3 guys to help Wayne in the kitchen and maybe a couple for 50/50 sales. Kitchen help to be there at 4:00. 50/50 can show up at 5:00.
 
Bill or Dennis, can you help take tickets and use the Square for credit cards? If you could be there by 4:30 or so?
 
Bob is in charge of collecting and counting money but not sure if he needs help?
 
Thanks guys for your support!

Prayers for Fr. Sigman

Monday, October 20, 2014



> Brother Knights,
>
> The most recent news regarding the health of Father Sigman, the Founding Pastor of Corpus Christi Parish is disturbing.  According to my source, Fr. Sigman was discharged from the hospital on Saturday and "sent home to die". 
>
> Father Sigman was not only the Founding Pastor of our parish, he was a Fourth Degree Knight and a strong supporter of the Knights of Columbus.  He is a gracious and warm man who converted to the Catholic Faith from another religion before he became entering the seminary.  Fr. Sigman was also the Founding Pastor of St. Daniel the Prophet Parish in Scottsdale.
>
> Please keep Father Sigman in your prayers as he progresses toward his eternal home with our Savior.
>
> (Father's exact health issues are not known and all the skills of modern medical science seem unable to accurately diagnose his various maladies.)

Distribute Rosaries 10/4 and 10/5, Texas Hold'em 11/1

Thursday, October 2, 2014



Brother Knights,
 
We will once again be distributing free rosaries after all the masses this weekend in advance of Rosary Sunday on 10/12.
 
I could use a few volunteers after each mass to help me out so if you have a few minutes after the mass you normally attend to help, I would appreciate it.
 
Also, mark your calendars to play Texas Hold'em to support our seminarians on Saturday, Nov. 1st at 6 pm in Rooms 5 & 6. If you have any items to donate for prizes that would be greatly appreciated! See the bulletin for more details.
 
I will be attending Fr. Chad's Adult Faith Formation series and will not be at the Knight's meeting 10/2 so call if you have any questions, thanks!

Safe Environment Training for KoC

Friday, October 3, 2014


 
Brothers-
 
As mentioned in our meeting last night.  In brief, from the State and the Diocese, all Knights must to go through SET training in order to participate in  activities.
 
Please try to attend one of the sessions listed below.  Call the office to register for the class:  480-893-8770.
 
Doug
 
 
Hi Doug,
 
I talked to John Deg, our Safe Environment Coordinator, earlier today about your request for Safe Environment training for the Knights.  We discussed holding a session before one of the Thursday meetings, but because of the time of the training, to finish before 7pm the meeting would have to start at 4:30pm, at the latest.  That seemed like it might be a hardship for people who work 9-5.
 
However, John is hosting two Safe Environment Training sessions in the next few weeks that would be available for Knights who need the initial training.
 
Saturday, October 11 @ 1:30-4:00 pm in Rooms 5/6 Wednesday, October 22 @ 6:30-9:00 pm in Rooms 7/8/9
 
Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
Thank you.
 
Peace,
Steve

2014-2015 Council 10062 Budget

Wednesday, October 1, 2014


Brothers-

Attached is a proposed budget that was reviewed at the last leadership meeting.  The budget was prepared by the Worthy Financial Secretary and distribute to all in attendance at the leadership meeting on Thursday, September 18th.  Since then he has updated the budget to reflect recent events and information.

Please review the attachment and come to the meeting to discuss and vote on it.  We will spend a limited amount of time for discussion hence it is being sent out ahead for review rather than presenting it cold at the meeting.

Vivat Jesus!
