K of C Council 3956 July 2022 Newsletter

Brother Knights and Friends,

We begin our newsletter this month focusing on our 2nd Annual Tony Cerezo Memorial Golf Outing. This year the proceeds will go the Sacred Hear Major Seminarians. As we know, there is a shortage of men entering the priesthood. This makes it all the more important for this year’s golf outing to be a success. If you are a golfer, this a bargain for 18 holes of golf, plus breakfast combo, gift bags, a great lunch and a trophy up for grabs, and prizes. Volunteers are needed as well. This is very much worthy of your time. Encourage your friends as well to join in the fun.

Please read on as the other messages and announcements are important to our community. As Deacon Chuck articulates, “we must be vigilant, faithful to the cause, standing up for those who cannot” and Brother Robert Park our co-editor that “we are reminded how God wants us to live”.

God Bless all of us and our families.
