FW: Knights and Widows

December 12th, 2014


Please let me know if you can help out.

Hi Ed,


I was wondering if there were one or two brother Knights who could help a widow, Jean Heubel pack up her house.  She is leaving to move to her son’s house in Clemmons, SC. 


You may remember her, she is one of our lectors and has a very animated way of proclaiming the scripture.  She had asked for two youth, but I thought two Knights would be better.  


Please let me know if that is possible.

Wood Cut

December 1st, 2014


As we begin Advent we come into the most joyous time of the year.  It’s a time for peace and giving.  What better way to give than to spend a Saturday afternoon in the outdoors cutting and splitting wood for needy families in the Wake Forest area.

Our brother Mark Downing has been leading this effort for several years and he’s reaching out to the rest of us for help.  I know this is a very busy time of the year for most of us.  But, if you can spare a Saturday, doing something that’s very rewarding give Mark a shout.  God has blessed the wood cut ministry with a lot of wood this year in need of splitting. The teens do a great job over their 6 Saturdays spread throughout the winter but we could always use a day or two more. It normally is a 6 hour workday on a Sat more or less. Let me know your thoughts on this.

Mark can be reached at; Mark humility658@hotmail.com

God Bless you all.

Hey guys,


I attended this men’s conference last year at St. Michael’s which was it’s first conference and it was a worthwhile one day event with fellowship, renewal, confession, guest speaker, and mass with his Excellency Bishop Burbidge.  


Normally $20 and worth it but if you’re a Knight of Columbus you get a $5 discount PLUS if you register today, Good Friday, you get another $5 off so it’s only $10!  


Hope to see you there.

Brothers in Christ,

We at the Catholic Men’s Conference in Raleigh wish you each a Happy Thanksgiving, and many blessings as we start our new liturgical year.

I have been asked today my thoughts on the earlier Black Friday sales events, and how I think they affect our families. I say they have a great strategy.

As successful as the retailers are at pulling our families from the dinner table, into their stores, we would like to take a moment to remember what we are celebrating today. The word Eucharist itself means thanksgivings.

So take this day, and give thanks for your family.

And when you can no longer resist the temptation to shop, come to our site.

We are offering a 24 hour Black Friday event. Take our discount, and register early.

This limited offer is good for 24 hours starting at midnight of Black Friday.

Grab your friends, and sign up for this great deal today!


January 24, 2015


9:00am to 1:00pm
Please sign in after 8:00am

Thank you again for participating in our parade.  This year’s parade is lining up to be bigger and better than ever!  We have some wonderful surprises in store and are counting on good weather after last year’s event:)


Parade packets will be be mailed out shortly and you should receive your packet by the middle of next week.  This packet will include a map, participant instructions and parking/entry passes. I am including an attachment to this email with the map in the event that you want to share it with the parents/other participants in your group.


We do not have the final line up numbers until immediately prior to the parade so you will receive that when you check in on parade day.


Wishing you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving and looking forward to seeing you on December 13th!
