Brothers,
It has been just over a year since the untimely passing of our brother Jeremy Gould.  Our brother Knight, Chris Cooke, has informed us that Jeremy’s two oldest sons, ages 11 and 7, have developed a growing interest in music.
We would like to be able to support their interests by collecting funds to help pay for guitar lessons.  As you know, one of the main reasons Father McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus was to provide assistance to the widows and children who have been left behind by our departed Brother Knights.
Please join your brother Knights in support of the Gould family in this small, but very important, way.  You can donate via our website by using the following link: https://www.kofcgolfnc.com/jeremy
Also, if you have a gently used guitar that you would like to donate, please let me know and we can make arrangements to get it to the Gould family.
Thank you, brothers and God bless.

“Installation of Council 11234 Officers” UpDate

July 11th, 2020

Worthy Brother Knights of Council 11234,

I would like to invite all Brother Knights of Council 11234 to the in person “Installation of Council Officers” on Wednesday evening July 15th at 7 PM in Saint Catherine’s of Siena Church, please use the side door on the school side.

Father Bill John Acosta-Escobar and our Fellow Brother DD John Mezera will preside over the ceremony.

Father Bill John has requested that “we must wear masks with the proper social distancing.” We will need to adhere to the current seating arrangement we have for Saturday Evening and Sunday Mass, every other pew and within the blue tape areas.

If anyone is uncomfortable attending the In person Installation, that is understandable.

Vivat Jesus!

Message from the Grand Knight

June 13th, 2020

Brothers,
I wanted to inform you that the motion to elect our new Council Officers was unanimously approved at our business last Thursday evening, so I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all our new Officers and thank them for agreeing to take on the responsibility of shaping the future of our council.  I’ve gotten to know and to work with most of our new officers over the last few years I’m very happy to say that our council is in very good hands.  
Although I am not able to deliver this message to you face to face, I want you all to know that it has been my honor to serve as your Grand Knight for the last two years.  I am so proud to be a part of a group of men who hold tight to their Catholic faith while living out our principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.  Although we’ve faced many challenges over the last two years, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, you gentlemen have always been ready to rise to the occasion.  I know first-hand that we have touched many lives and made a difference for many people in our parish and community.  I am truly honored to call you my brothers.  
To all the Officers that have served with me, I want to thank you for your dedication and commitment.  I cannot overstate how invaluable your advice and support have been to me.  I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know you and I look forward to working with you all in a new capacity.
Brothers, I know our incoming Grand Knight, Joe Palko will be able to count on the same support you have given to me. I ask that you please keep Joe and all of our officers in your prayers as they prepare to lead our council forward.  
Thank you all again and God bless!

Your Brother in Christ,
SK Mike Potochnik, GKKnights of Columbus, Council 11234St. Catherine of Siena, Wake Forest, NChttp://kofc11234.org

Worthy Brothers,

A reminder that our June business meeting will be held on June 11th at 7:30 PM (this coming Thursday).  Meeting details can be found at the bottom of this email.  We will be finalizing the election during the meeting, so, if you can, please attend and show your support for our new officers and Grand Knight.
I also have a few other items to share with you this week:
Ordination to the Priesthood – Last Saturday, Jairo Maldonado was ordained to the Priesthood by Bishop Zarama at the Cathedral.  Our Worthy Treasurer and Vocations Chairman, Dave Rogers, attended as a representative of our council.  You may recall that Fr. Jairo Maldonado was one of the three seminarians that we supported through the RSVP program this year.  Please continue to offer your prayers for Fr. Maldonado as he begins this new part of his journey in service to our Lord.
You can watch the liturgy via the link below:

Consecration to the Holy Family – If you and your family are looking for ways to grow in spirituality during the pandemic, please consider devoting your family to the ideal model of familial love set by Jesus, Mary and Joseph through the Consecration to the Holy Family.  

The Knights of Columbus has put together the Consecration to the Holy Family program to assist you and your family in consecrating yourselves under the protection of the Holy Family. “In this prayer, we ask for the aid or intercession of the perfect son Jesus Christ, Mary the perfect mother, and Joseph who is a model for every father”.
I have attached the prayer card and the recommended steps for preparation.  For more information, please visit http://kofc.org/en/what-we-do/faith-in-action-programs/family/consecration-to-the-holy-family.html
Fr. Robert J. Kus – Father Kus recently responded to my email regarding the beatification of Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney.  If you would link to see what Fr. Kus is up to, please check out his new website:
