Thank you to all the Brother Knights and wives who made the events of the past week happen—Pancake Breakfast, Blood Pressure Check, Family Rosary Night, Dancercise… And thank you to the following Brothers who stepped up to fill the vacancies in our Executive during the General Meeting:
- Philip Barnwell as Deputy Grand Knight
- Raimund Holzbauer as Inside Guard 1
- Sundy Arca as Inside Guard 3
- Felix Tan as Outside Guard 1
- Raphael Teotico as Outside Guard 3.
We look forward to having a better handle on things now that we have a full slate of officers.
A busy week makes way for a relatively quiet but very important one:
This Saturday is a red-letter day for the 3rd Degree Exemplification. All 2nd Degree Knights should make time to attend. This is the step that advances you from being a MEMBER of Knights of Columbus to being a KNIGHT of Columbus.
This is the final week for selling Charity Appeal tickets. Please give it your best effort as the proceeds of the Appeal benefit several charitable causes including Special Olympics, Food Bank, our scholarship bursaries, LifeTeen, VANSPEC, etc. Sold tickets must be submitted by this Saturday January 24 to Bro. Jack Coursol (604-725-2224) in order to be entered into the Main Draw on January 31st.
Sign up your kids and their friends age 9 to 14 for the Free Throw Championship on January 31st 10am. Contact Bro. Felix Tan (604-782-7023) or Raphael Teotico (778-708-8767).
Finally, we have a new website! Check out our new look at kofc6855.ca. We hope this new platform will allow us a more dynamic web presence that we can jointly maintain and update on a daily basis. Please note: we’re still working on uploading the photo galleries and newsletter archives. We intend to keep those content private by putting a password on those sections of the site. In order to gain access to those pages, please type the password:

Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter! I would like you to be almost obsessed about this. Be so without being presumptuous, imposing “our truths,” but rather be guided by the humble yet joyful certainty of those who have been found, touched and transformed by the Truth who is Christ, ever to be proclaimed. – Pope Francis
