Other events this weekend

November 13th, 2018

Worthy Brothers,

In addition to events/activities mentioned by our Worthy Grand Knight on a
previous email for this upcoming weekend, we have Operation Harvest and
Tri-Area Ministries delivering food. Operation Harvest will be delivering
Thanksgiving baskets to be donated by our Parish in addition to the typical
food we sort and delivery every Saturday, which currently serves 27 poor
elderly shut-in families. Please know that we delivered 3 truck loads of
Thanksgiving baskets last year and I expect about the same this year if not
more. As for Tri-Area Ministry food delivery, we now have 14 families we
serve. I suspect that the amount of food would be at least 2 truck loads
and that is a total of 5 truck loads of food or more to deliver for both
ministries!

Please Know that we run these two events and we are in need of your help!
In response to the countless blessings we each have from God, what better
ways to celebrate Thanksgiving week than starting it with a service in
delivering food to those in need?

1) Operation Harvest – 11/17 at 9:15am in the Trinity Center. To sign up
and help, please visit:

www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0545a9a829a64-team

2) Tri-Area Ministry – 11/17 at 9:30am meeting around the 2 benches outside
the dining room.

Memorial Mass

November 6th, 2018

Worthy Brothers,
As a follow-up to my previous email regarding the Memorial Mass on November 18th at 8:00 am:  
Fr. Bill John has given his approval for the Knights to dress in regalia at the upcoming Memorial Mass.  If you intend to join us, please let me know if you will be dressed in regalia, in a tux, or in your council shirt.  
Fr. has also agreed to allow us to read the necrology prior to the start of Mass.  If you would like to include the name of a relative who is departed brother Knight, let me know and I will make sure they are added to the current list.
We will gather in the Narthex prior to the start of Mass. Please plan to arrive early enough to give us some time to get set up.  Our Worthy Trustee Matt Stein would like to remind everyone that while gathering in the Narthex, the Rosary will be going on and sound travels very well in our church which is disruptive to the faithful praying.  He thanks you in advance for your prudence in conversation.
Vivat Jesus! Fraternally yours in Christ,
SK Mike Potochnik, GKKnights of Columbus, Council 11234St. Catherine of Siena, Wake Forest, NChttp://kofc11234.org

Brothers,
I just received confirmation on a date for the Knights Memorial Mass.  Father Bill John will be offering Mass for our departed brothers at
8:00 AM on November 18th.
Please join us as we prayerfully remember our departed brothers.
As we have done in the past, we will process in with Father and then return to our families.  I hope to get approval from Fr. Bill John to read the necrology this year.
In Christ,
