Grand Knight’s Message 2022

My Brother Knights

I would like to thank you for electing me as Grand Knight for Council 3515. As many of you know, I am a PGK of this council and I look forward to once again working with all of you to have a successful year.

My first order of business is to thank our outgoing GK John Warden for his service to our council. Brother John had the misfortune to guide this council during the 2 years of covid shutdowns and forced inactivity. In my opinion he did an outstanding job and should be commended for his leadership and perseverance.

To say that coming out of covid we want to recapture and reignite everyone’s passion for the Knights and what we do, is no easy job. To that affect I invited PGK John Innis to work with me and be our current Deputy Grand Knight and PGK Jim Watling to continue as our Chancellor. I think that between John, Jim, myself and our executive we have some exciting events planned for this upcoming year. While we will still be running events such as our breakfasts, we also want to continue and or add new events such as:

  • Our Annual Kick off Corn Roast - August 21st @ 2 PM.
    • If you need directions, please call Br. Peter at 519-532-8396.
  • Smoked Chop Dinner - October
  • Turkey Bingo - November
  • Gas For a Year (Month) Draw - This Fall
  • Childrens Christmas Party - Open to Children, Grand Children of the K of C.
  • Adult Christmas Party - December
  • Valentines Date Night Dinner & Murder Mystery Event - Open to all.
  • PLUS MAY OTHER EVENTS “ REFER TO THE EVENT LIST FOR ALL DATES

Brothers, I look forward to working with each of you during the new fraternal year. If there is anything you feel we can do better, please let me know. Thanks for everything you do.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help! Pray For US!

Yours truly

GK, Brian Larocque

 

The Chaplains Message

The season of Advent has been celebrated in the Church since the fourth century.   The Church adopted this word from the Latin word Adventus, used in ancient times to describe the arrival or presence of a king who had come to visit parts of his kingdom.

At the beginning of this joyful season of Advent, we set out on a journey of spiritual preparation, not only for Christmas but also for the second coming of the Lord at the end of time. Be watchful and ready: you know not when the Son of Man is coming(Matt 24). Jesus says that on that day or hour nobody knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, no one but the Father. He exhorts his disciples to be like the doorkeeper in the parable who awaits the return of the master of the house awake and vigilant at evening, midnight, cockcrow, dawn.

As Christians we have the gift of faith; and this enables us to see beyond this world. Let us renew our faith this Advent season so that our eyes may see and our ears may hear the wondrous truth that we are born for immortality. In the seasons light and shade, words and music, holly and Ivy, candles and wreaths of greenery, may we see and hear the joyful proclamation of the coming of our Redeemer. Let us be ready to meet him so that, whatever our weaknesses, strengths, hopes, fears, joys, or disappointments, when at last our Redeemer comes to us, our eyes shall be fully opened and we shall recognize the ONE who loved us from all eternity.

Fr. Dariusz.
