September Polish dinner

”Co za kolacja”! This is the sentiment from any polish person in their right mind. (Insert joke here) Translated to English this means, “what a supper”. Truly it was. The line wound up the stairs to the cathedral. 158 eat in and 36 take out guests delighted in Kielbasa, polish mashed potato, stuffed pierogi, fresh greens salad with rolls and butter. The ambience rounded out by lively Polish ditties these meals are becoming something very special as comments are positive and encouraging. Comments like “I can’t wait for next month” or “I need to get the schedule, what else is coming up?” For the gentleman who pocketed a cool “c – note”, he made a tidy profit on his five dollar 50/50 investment. My view from the door is a great one because smiles and conversation dominates the room. People chewing and swaying to the music and mingling with their faith family. As the cash box grows we all eat knowing a greater cause other than our appetites is at work. Men taking weeks to organize prepare and work to build our community and help bring together our congregation and serve the Lord with our lives the best we can. This is at the heart of what the Knights of Columbus does. In the words of many of our guests, I cannot wait for the next one. See you there.

 

Proverbs 17:17

Congratulations to our Brother Deacon Terry Sullivan!

 After over 4 years of study and prayer, our fellow Brother Terry Sullivan was ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of Manchester on September 9th.  Although Terry has been assigned to Saint Joseph’s in Epping, he will remain in our thoughts and prayers as he embarks on his ministry as a Permanent Deacon.  To insure Terry remembers his brother Knights from Council 9058, we presented him with a dalmatic with the Knights of Columbus emblem during his reception.  Best of Luck, Terry!

2017 Golf Tournament

Finally, after a two week delay do to rain, the Hampstead Council completed a successful golf tournament on August 19, 2017. The weather was beautiful with sunshine all afternoon. Thirty eight golfers competed for top prize and their names engraved on the permanent trophy on display in the church.

 

As usual a huge collection of very nice gifts of merchandise and gift certificates were available to the winners of the tournament and followed by raffle winners.

 

Chicken Connection provided a meal that was both delicious and plentiful. All who were able to participate enjoyed another great outing and hopefully will be looking forward to next year.

 

Congratulations to our winning team!

Thank you to all players, sponsors and volunteers!
