Grand Knight’s letter September 2018
Greetings Brothers. The summer will soon be behind us and we start getting ready for the rest of the Columbian year. Your officers, along with the Columbian Club and the Ladies Auxiliary, have put together the schedule of the rest of this year, which includes the 9/11 Memorial Service. Annual Picnic, the Past Grand Knight’s Dinner, and other events. Check the Council’s web site (kofc6201.com) for dates. In September the Annual Picnic is on the 15th, bring your family and help celebrate the grand year this has been. To make the picnic a great event, your help is needed. Please check with DGK Tom Raulinvich or PGK Lou McGraw (picnic co-chairmen) to see where help is needed. There will be a general cleanup on Labor Day, September 3rd. The club president said he will grill hamburgers and hot dogs for the help. So, come on out and help us clean up OUR HOME.
Recently, there has been a lot of bad news concerning the abuse of children by some of our church’s clergy. The Pope has sent out a letter concerning the issue, he condemns this abuse in any form, also saying that we must be ever vigilant for our children. Our bishop also sent out a letter, which was read during all the masses on Sunday the 18/19th. One of our principles as Knights is to support the church and the clergy. I understand this to mean that we should support the teachings of the church. These teachings say it is a sin and a crime for those that abuse our children, but we need to stand up for those who do follow the church’s teachings. I would ask you my brother Knights to pray for our clergy to strengthen their faith and actions concerning this. I would also ask you to let people know that this is not what we Catholics are and that we and the church condemn this abuse.
On a sadder note one of our brothers passed away in June. Henry Higgins, our 3rd oldest member, had moved to Florida, which is why we just learned on his passing. Let’s keep him and all departed brothers is our prayers.
