K of C Council 3956 August 2022 Newsletter

Brother Knights and Friends,

As we get close to the fall season, many of the familiar events are approaching. Not just the cooling temperatures and the changing colors of the leaves, but the return of Doughnut Sundays and Charity Family Breakfast. Fund raising such as Coats for Kids has begun and soon enough our Tootsie Roll drive for the mentally impaired is already being planned. All of this and so much more has been written up for you in our September newsletter attached.

We have had a busy year. Much of it for fun. We had picnics, and boat cruising, beer nights and dinners together. We really are having a great time, Mostly, because we love what we do and who we do it with. It’s nice to be around people that genuinely care about each other and our families.

There are very inspiring articles by Deacon Chuck, Grand Knight Mark Garcellano and each of our officers and directors. I truly encourage you to read cover to cover. It’s worth it. Finally, read the challenge to take “baby steps” towards fulfilling God’s purpose for you and “have a chance get a taste of what we do and why it is so fulfilling for us”.

Peace!

Brother Knights and Friends,

Below is the link for our newsletter for August 2022. You will notice that there are several more articles from more of our officers and directors. One common theme is service to community. A resonating message as we gear up for the St. Pius X One Day Parish Festival this Saturday, August 20th from Noon to 11:00 p.m.

Please make a point to volunteer for a few hours at the festival and spend some time supporting this very important and crucial event for our parish. Remember also to attend our Downriver K of C picnic at Centennial Park on Grosse Ile, the following Saturday, August 27th. Bring the whole family.

Finally, please take time to read and reflect on the Prayer of the Month. Service with a joyful heart…with gentleness, compassion, and tenderness…

I look forward to seeing each of you at the Festival and then the following Saturday at the Downriver Picnic.

Peace!

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.
