Brother Knights and Friends,
Attached is your K of C newsletter for April, 2021. We are busy and getting busier. Nomination and election of Officers is upon us. We are also getting closer to our first annual golf outing coming up in early August. We have our Motorcycle Blessing and Christian concert planned in the months ahead. There is more, much more. We look forward to your involvement and seeing you at our next meeting on Wednesday May 5th as we safely gather for the greater good.
Pray for each other and all who we love.

The General Agents in the state of Michigan have decided to sponsor another seminar featuring Tom Hegna.
Tom Hegna is a leading expert in retirement income, how to keep it and how to use it.
Please open the attached flyer and register for this fantastic opportunity to hear an expert on how we can all live a better life in retirement.
As we get closer to Easter, the Knights of Columbus are encouraging families in the parish community to attend the Good Friday Services at St. Pius X Catholic Parish on Friday, April 2nd, 2021 starting at 12 Noon.
Despite Good Friday’s central nature in the heart of Christianity, attendance at services remains low. Putting their faith into action, the Bernard P. O’Brien Council 3956 Knights of Columbus in Southgate will encourage participation through a promotional campaign that educates their parishes on the vital importance of Good Friday. The liturgy of the Lord’s passion and death reminds families of the suffering Jesus endured through his passion and resurrection, thereby opening the gates of heaven for each of us.
Setting an example for their community, starting at 12 Noon, our Council will be attending Stations of the Cross, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, Meditation of Jesus’ Last Words and Celebration of the Passion of the Lord. All of this will conclude at 3:15PM.
Please join us in this somber but important event. If you have any questions, please call the St. Pius Parish Office at 734-285-1100.
I hope the start to the New Year has been good to you are your families. Attached is our January newsletter. Some items of interest include a Fifth Sunday rosary before Sunday masses on January 31st , a reminder of our next membership meeting on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, and an extension of our on line membership drive through June 30, 2021. We encourage you to share this newsletter with work, family and community associates.

We are inviting all interested Knights and their families to the Coats for Kids distribution (through the Coats for Kids Program) our Council is participating in. Our District has amassed well over 150 coats to give away! (Our Council has purchased 96 alone!)
This volunteer opportunity is open to Knights and their families, as well as Catholic men and their families interested in learning more about what we as Knights do!
It will be an enjoyable event for the whole family.
The event is being held next Saturday, December 12th at:
Basilica of Sainte Anne de Detroit
1000 St. Anne St.
Detroit, MI 48216
Volunteers should arrive @ 9:00 am.
The event should end @ 2:00 pm.
Please send Financial Secretary Ray Bilyk an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in attending so that we can alert the District Deputy.
As stated in last Wednesday’s Business Meeting, I placed the Dues Notices (for Regular and Honorary members) and membership cards (for Honorary Life members) in alphabetical order in the Ushers Room at St. Pius X Church.
Please stop by and pick up yours (and any Brother Knights you might live near) so the Council can save on postage.
On December 15th, the remaining envelopes will be placed in the mail.
Reminder that we are also collecting funds for the State Council’s Take 10 for Charity Program (suggested amount $10) and the Sacred Heart Major Seminary Endowed Scholarship Fund (suggested amount $6). These are voluntary requests.
Besides mailing in your dues/donations, you can also make your payment by credit card (for a $2.00 convenience fee) by heading to https://www.kofc3956.org/pay-dues/
If you have any questions, please free to contact me at email@example.com .
Have a Merry CHRISTmas!
