National Vocation Awareness Week Program

This year we will observe National Vocation Awareness Week with a program at St. Jane’s on Nov. 6th from 6:00-7:30 p.m. The St Janes Vocation’s Committee has planned a brief evening of prayer, music and fellowship, including reflections on the meaning and importance of our personal vocations. Speakers will include  Rev. David Anthony along with Sr. Angela Marie SSCJ and parishioners Clarissa Lieb and Mrs. Rebecca Isaac. While the evening is especially geared for young people, all are welcome.  Brother Knight Dr. Joe DiMarco, 610-438-0139, is the coordinator of this event, so we encourage the Knights to show your support for Dr Joe.

See the Events page for more detailed event information & the current list of events for 2016 & 2017.

Grand Knight's Message

Brother Knights:

The Installation of Officers will take place on Wednesday, 10/26/16 followed by a social gathering.  The spouses of all officers are invited.  All officers must wear a suit & tie or jacket\dress slacks & tie.  This meeting is also open to Brother Knights in good standing and their spouses.  We ask all guests to dress in business casual.

The Football Sweeps program has come to a close.  Unfortunately the trend of downward sales continued and we sold less tickets this year than in prior years.  The chairperson, Jerry Krenik, has expressed a desire to enjoy his retirement time and be less involved next year, so we are looking for a new chairperson that Jerry can mentor.

The Inaugural Family Rosary was held on Sunday October 2, 2016 at St Jane's grotto.  There were about a dozen attendees evenly split between Brother Knights and concerned Parishioners.

Our Knight of the Year Dinner was held on Friday, October 7, 2016 at the Palace Restaurant.  There were about 30 attendees including family members of the new Knight-of-the-Year.  This Year's recipient was Walter Evancho.  Walt and his wife have three children, five grandchildren. Walt was an Army Reservists during the Vietnam Conflict, and had a diversified career.  Walt is a Fourth Degree Knight, and has served as DGK and GK, as well as chairperson for the Lenten Fish Dinners.  It is a well deserved honor for Walt who has served the Knights well.

Christmas card sales are underway.  Sales have taken place at St Jane's and St Anthony's.  Additional sales are scheduled for --- (1) OLOM 10/22-10/23;  (2) Holy Ghost 10/30 (Sunday Only); and again at St Jane's 11/19-11/20.   We need members on this committee so please contact Frank Gualano if you can help.

The Memorial Mass will be on November 16, 2016 at 7:00 PM.  The Catholic Daughters of American have been invited and they will bring this event to the general membership at their next meeting.

The Children's Christmas Party will take place on Saturday, 12/17/16.  Please forward to Frank Gualano your attendance by 12/8/16. Shopping and wrapping the presents will take place Saturday 12/10/16

For the good of the order, if you know of a brother knight who is sick, in distress, or recently passed, please contact Vince Menegus.  Recently, the Council has been informed that Bill Abert's mother-in-law is in very failing health, so please keep Bill and his wife and their family in your prayers.  Also remember in your prayers Sandy Haney and Ruth Bogari both who have had recent surgeries.

I look forward to seeing many of you at our next meeting on October 26, 2016.

Vivat Jesus!

Union Council 345
goes back one-hundred and ten years in the City of Easton and has a distinguished record of service to both our catholic parishes and our community. On the most part, the men who make up Union Council 345 today have lived in Easton most of their lives. We have seen a great deal of growth and changes to Easton and its Catholic parishes over the last two decades. We invite all Catholic men in the Easton area to join our council and become Knights.
