Council 3956 April Newsletter

Brother Knights and Friends,

It was so nice to see a packed house on Easter Sunday. I mentioned to Fr. Suresh that we should remind people to treat each Sunday as if Easter were to get more people to celebrate the mass. After all, like Easter, each Sunday is a day of renewal, beginning a new week.

Speaking of new beginnings, our meeting this Wednesday, April 3rd in the Social Hall, we will nominate officers for the new K of C council officers. Grand Knight Mark Garcellano in his address to the council provides detail for each position of officers and directors. Please take the time to read what each position entails and give some thought about possibly seeking a position.

Deacon Chuck article this month is entitled “New Beginnings” Great minds think alike. As Take to heart his message that “Catholic gentlemen and Knights we are called to have that Spirit of rebirth”.  Regarding the deacon, April 1 is his birthday! Come to our meeting on Wednesday and wish him personally a Happy Birthday. Like so many of our officers, he is a golly good fellow. 

As you read through the newsletter, check out the calendar of events, which summarizes a busy month full of enrichment opportunities: Our Knights of Columbus council host not one, but two Christian based concerts in April, local favorite Mike Carey and popular artist Jon Troast bring their talents to St. Pius Parish. Next Sunday is a fraternal outing to cheer on the Detroit Red Wings as they set their sights on the NHL playoffs. More camaraderie as we host Donut Sunday, support the St. Pius School Auction, offer free financial and retirement related webinars, and participate in Third and Fourth Degree exemplifications. 

My best wishes as always to each of our Brother Knights and your families. Spring is here and there is no better time than the present to find your purpose. As my daughter tells her class, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
