Grand Knight's Message
We are approaching the 5th week of Easter and the 9th week of Shelter-In-Place. California started easing restrictions, but it’s still uncertain when regular meetings will resume. Yet the Council continues to practice its Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
We support the live-streamed masses, whether in front of OR behind the camera. We maintain the sacrament of reconciliation at a socially-acceptable distance. We check-in with our most vulnerable Knights. And we pray novenas for loved ones, worthy causes and hopeful outcomes (“Hope does not disappoint”). Thank you, Brothers, for everything you do.
Not only are we faced with challenging situations living in a COVID-19 world, but so is our Parish. The Council will soon issue a meaningful challenge to the Membership to support CCOP in that regard. Find out more in a special Council email and/or log-into the Business Zoom Meeting on the 14th.
For some brighter notes...
Welcome to our newest and youngest Knight: Preston Bernardi, a recent AVHS grad. Congratulations to the recipients of this year’s Council scholarships: Abby Unpingco, Will Bosse and Jordan Do. A financial benefits seminar scheduled on May 23rd, 9am. And congratulations to Mira Gagnon for winning at the KOC Chapter-wide poster contest.
Through all this, Council 6043 continues doing God’s work in our community. We are truly blessed to have a vibrant and loyal group of Catholic gentlemen. Appreciate your reading the newsletter and “see” you next Thursday.
