HELP OUR OWN COUNCIL YOUTH--NOELLE BAILEY

Brothers All:

Noelle Bailey has been a member of our Council Family for years. Noelle has grown up in the

council helping her parents and supporting our activities. Now is a chance for us to give her a

hand in support of her missionary work. It is truly amazing to have such dedicated youth who is

giving up time to support the less fortunate. Our support could spring board Noelle to become

someone God is asking us all to dohelping the disadvantage children of God. READ Passage

BAILEY TO THE TOPIt is the least we can do.

This coming spring break, I will be spending a week serving the less fortunate of Gallup, New

Mexico with fellow Franciscan University students. We will be helping the homeless, the

elderly, the developmentally disabled, and the children of this community alongside the

Missionaries of Charity and the Little Sisters of the Poor. As with every mission, this requires

fundraising for travel expenses. Money will also go towards a donation to the service sites.

Please consider giving to this cause, as the people of Gallup are much in need. I hope to spread

the love of Christ to these people in the best way I can. Thank you all in advance. Pray for me

and let me know of any intentions you may have. God bless.

OLD GLORY IS FLYING HIGH AT THE COUNCIL

On the evening of May 20th in the Year of Our Lord a new American Flag was raised high above the grounds of Keough Council.  You would have been proud to see Joe, Steve, George, Derrick, Don, Roger and Bob give Old Glory a tribute salute.  Now you should ask about me, your GK.  I was taking the picture with a tear in both eyes.  That was my salute.  You know patriotism sometimes is no farther than the space between your ear, your eye and your heart. There is something about a new flag that sort of makes me think. How many eyes will look up at our flag and think: Thank God for this country; God Bless America; Freedom is not Free; Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; Those Knights are a good bunch and I feel safe parking my car here; etc. You can add you thoughts.

OUR LADY OF PEACE ROUND TABLE WEB PAGE

The Fort Meade Roundtable is part of the Keough 5263 Council.  The Round Table meets on the 1st Saturday of each month at 8:00 am at the Chapel Center. 

The Knights of Columbus, with more than 1.8 million members, is the world’s largest lay Catholic fraternal service organization. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, its’ pastors and their community. The guiding principles of the order are: Charity; Unity; Fraternity; and, Patriotism.

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age or older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting the Church while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

At Our Lady of Peace Military Catholic Community the Round Table is active in all aspects of the Fort Meade Chapel Program.  They support the Catholic and Community Chaplin Program by:

**Collecting and preparing food for the needy

**Providing Sound System and Technical Support

**Maintaining the Children Memorial Garden

ETC....
