Message from Grand Knight of Council 92 :Charity, Unity, Fraternally.
Manchester Council 92 home is now officially at St. Joseph Cathedral Parish. With Fr. Robert Smolley illness, he is no longer the Pastor of PBVM Parish, with a medical retirement, our staying our there was not in that Parishes plans. We need to thank Monsignor Anthony R. Frontiero for having us move over into his Parish with such a short notice, we were homeless for a short time. Our next business meeting on 9/18/2015 will be voting on changing our bylaws as we need to also change our meetings night to not confict with other Parish groups.
At our planning meeting one of our members ask me what plans that I had to revise this council, good question, but the real question should be is what are you doing to help revise this coucil? This is not a one man show, and just having a few men caring the load is not going to do it. I would like to go back to the basics on what we learned from our degrees that our founder, the Venerable Micheal J. McGivney taught us - Charity, Unity, and Fraternity it's that simple. There will be some changes this years, such as the Officer meeting will be a planning meeting which all are welcone including your wife's, this is your council and I will see everyone will have a voice.
I need your help, our challenges are abundant to fulfill our commitments into our charitable works. I continue to urge you to donate what ideas and works that you can offer. Whether it is monitorary donation or a personal charitable donation, I challenge all of the New Brothers to join in on as many activities as they can. The reward for participation in the Councils projects is intrinsically rewarding. We need men to fill in many postions, help out getting men to degrees and not just new members but most important to get other members to come back to the council.
I plan on sending out weekly news on our councel news and news from our state so you can be up to date on what we're doing. Remember that there has been a change in the Council meeting place. Effective now, and we will meet at our new home at St Joseph Cathedral Basement Hall. Both the Business and Planning meetings we will meet in the Parish basement hall on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. I`m looking forward to a great turnout of Members.
Brother Knights, it is very important that you attend the meetings. You need to complete all your degrees, and the council is in need of your help in the many activities that are coming up. I will make sure you don’t overcommit and that you have a good time. So come join us we can sure use your HELP!!
