Grand Knight’s Message
Why were you thankful? I asked many to respond to this, thank you to those who did.
Advent is here and we will be celebrating the birth of Christ. As this winter season brings cooler weather, remember that the warmth of the Holy Spirit is always with you. During advent we also promote “Keep Christ in Christmas” A way which reminds us that Christ was born on Christmas eve. I have a limited number of pins to promote this, see me if you want one.
As many of us become a “Giver” this time of the year to one another. What can we give to others and lift up their spirits this holiday season? Send your response to Jeremy Hadash at Your response will earn you 20 entries towards the $60 gift card.

Date Changes/Cancellations- 1) Our Rosaries prior to mass are CANCELLED unless 2 people come forward and are willing to do it prior to a 8:30am mass. 2) Major Degree we hosting is on Saturday February 23rd.

Our tentative council retreat is being postponed to later date TBA, as I work out the details with our spiritual advisor, Deacon Tom. Likely to be in January/Fenruary. Watch for flyer in next guidepost.
