Grand Knight's Message

Brother Knights:

This message is to alert everyone of some changes and events that have taken place.

The Installation of Officers took place on Wednesday, 10/26/16 followed by a social gathering that was attended by the members and their spouses.  All in attendance appeared to have a nice time.

Christmas card sales have been completed at all Parishes.  While the final tally is pending, it appears we made a profit on this event.

Fr Keith Laskowski performed the Memorial Mass on November 16, 2016.  The Catholic Daughters of America attended and in total there were about 30 attendees.

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.

With 2017 right around the corner, I wanted to inform you of some planned activities ---

  • The Recruitment\Admissions Committee should be working to have an Admissions (1st) Degree on Wednesday, January 25, 2017.  So please set a schedule so that any applicants on file are notified.

  • The Retention Committee has identified eligible candidates for the Formation (2nd) Degree which we would like to hold on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.  We will need volunteers to assist Vince Menegus (Retention Chairman) and Fran Pullo (Membership Director) to make contact with these candidates.

  • The Retention Committee has identified eligible candidates for the Knighthood (3rd) Degree.  There is an exemplification scheduled for Sunday, February 26, 2017.  We will need volunteers to assist Vince Menegus (Retention Chairman) and Fran Pullo (Membership Director) to make contact with these candidates.

  • Lenten Fish Dinners—TBD (4 out of 5 Friday evenings between Ash Wednesday 3/1/17 and Good Friday 4/14/17)

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 recently passed away, so please keep Bill and Marie in your prayers.  Also remember in your prayers Ruth Bogari who will be having another surgery.  Please offer the gift of a prayer for all Brothers and their families during this Christmas Season.

It is Advent Season.  The term is a version of the Latin word meaning "coming".  So as we await and prepare for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas remember that the values espoused by many during this season are the values that we as Knights espouse in our everyday life --- charity, unity, and fraternity.  Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and memorable Advent Season.

I look forward to seeing many of you at our next meeting on December 14, 2016.

Vivat Jesus!

Grand Knight

MERRY CHRISTMAS

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.
