Grand Knight's Message

Brother Knights:

Below is an update since the last correspondence in mid-September. 

Knight of the Year Dinner
The Knight of the Year Dinner was held on October 6, 2017.  This was the best turn-out we have had in years.  Several senior members of our Council attended as our special guest.  It was a good time to reminisce and share some of our history.

The Knight of the Year was Vince Menegus.  Vince is an Honorary Life Member with 32 years of service.  Vince currently wears many hats to assist our Council and serve the community.

Recruitment Drive
October is recruitment month.  This year recruitment is taking place on October 21st and 22nd at all Churches.  A separate communication will be sent, but at this time speakers are needed for OLOM 8:00 & 10:00 AM Masses; St Jane's 7:30 AM Mass so if anyone can speak and promote the Knights please contact me at 484-821-7325.

Keep Christ in Christmas--Christmas Card Sales.
Christmas cards will be on sale in October at St. Jane's & Holy Ghost.  Sales have already taken place at OLOM and St Anthony's.

Fifth Sunday Rosary Program
The next Fifth Sunday Rosary Program will be conducted on Sunday 10/29/17 at OLOM Parish at 2:00 PM.  Mike Hunsicker is coordinating this program so he will let us know about having the rosary said on Sunday 12/31/17 at St Jane's Church.

Memorial Mass
The Memorial Mass will be on November 15, 2017 (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM at the St. Jane's Chapel.  We will be inviting the Catholic Daughters of America  to celebrate and participate in this mass.

Football Sweepstakes Program
The "Football Sweeps Program" is now over. Our Council sold 237 tickets. Preliminary results has the Council earning around $800, net of any bonus payouts.

Previously many members stored Council property at their personal residence because we had no storage facility at St. Jane's.  We now have a central storage location at the St Francis Retreat House so if anyone has property belonging to the Knights, please contact Jim Di Paolo (484-821-7325) so arrangements can be made to move these goods to our centralized storage location.  All of our equipment and supplies are there;  we are missing a small tent used during Palmer Days.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Look forward to seeing many of you at our next meetings on 10/25/17.

Vivat Jesus!
Jim Di Paolo, Grand Knight #345
