Worthy Brothers All,
Just typing the schedule for this coming week is exhausting. Much going on this week as you can see below, but let me emphasize the following extra-special events:
Election time! Please be at our General Meeting this Monday and vote for those men who will lead our Council in the next Columbian Year.
Wednesday, we welcome a very important guest to our Parish: the pilgrim icon of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. The Marian Hour of Prayer starts at 7pm sharp. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can give her the welcome she deserves. You can read more about this program here.
MEMBERSHIP BLITZ – Can I capitalize that any further?! Thank you to the Brother Knights who will be stepping up to the pulpit to speak about our Order at each of the weekend Masses, and to Bro. Felix Tan for coordinating this effort. LET US ALL respond in matching generosity by hanging around in the foyer after the Mass we attend to help answer questions and to spot that one man or two whom we can sign up. Wear your badges, folks! If you’re hungry, then you can do it at the Pancake Breakfast. Let us all be able to say at the end of the Columbian year: yes, I recruited one new member to our Order this year! And they can be exemplified the Monday right after. Who knows? If we all do our part, we can double our membership just like that!
Finally, I have uploaded the Template for this January to March Activity Report. Please record all your Church, Council, etc. volunteer hours and send it back to me right away so I can summarize it for our Council’s report to the State due this April 15.
A busy week ahead, Brothers! Fortunately, it is a happy mix of prayer and action. May our prayers enlighten and empower our actions. God is good!
