On Sunday, November 13, 2016, Council 3956 will once again hit the grills and ovens to make a delicious FAMILY BREAKFAST. This month’s recipients are St. Vincent dePaul and the Downriver Food Pantry. Both of these charities need help to feed our Downriver families during this holiday season.
Come by after Mass to the St. Pius Social Hall and join us for eggs, pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice, coffee and/or tea. It’s a free-will donation, so bring the whole family. Even if you can’t afford to pay anything, stop on by… we have you covered!
We will also have tickets for sale for our 4th Annual CHRISTmas Concert featuring the Michigan Catholic Choir for only $10 each!
For my Brother Knights, we can use your help! We still need more volunteers for the breakfast. Please click on the link below and sign up:
(If you have time for two spots, please feel free to do so.)
VIVAT JESUS! I hope that you’re joining other Brother Knights and families in this country in praying the nine day Election Novena. If you are not, learn more about it here:
This is just a reminder that there is a Regular Business Meeting on Wednesday, November 2nd starting at 7PM in the St. Pius X Social Hall.
We have a lot of activities coming up (Christmas Concert, Charity Family Breakfast, HCCC/Boysville sweatshirt donations, etc.), so I hope that you can join us!
If you can’t join us, consider signing up for the following activities:
Charity Family Breakfast signup (get the good jobs early) – http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409084BAAAE29ABFF2-kofc1
Selling Christmas Concert Tickets after weekend Masses – http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409084BAAAE29ABFF2-signup
I’m attaching a copy of the flyer for the Christmas Concert. Please print and hang it up at locations where we can get some visability. We’re also looking for sponsors from area businesses. We have a letter that you can use to solicit sponsorships. We are also looking for Brother Knights to take and sell tickets to friends and family (10 to start per Brother Knight). Contact me for details on both.
Hope to see you all there! God Bless!
