THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
“Venerable Father McGivney, Pray for us!”
A MESSAGE FROM OUR FAITHFUL NAVIGATOR, WAYNE MURPHY
Worthy Sir Knights
On behalf of the officers, Janet and myself, we wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving especially under these difficult times. The rules on what we can or cannot do seem to change faster than the weather. Hopefully we all try and follow the advice of the medical experts regarding the safety requirements. Remember without our health nothing else really matters. Take a moment and call a family member or friend that is shut-in during this extra ordinary time.
The assembly lost another member with the passing of Sir Knight Denis De Gagne (21 year member) in late September. An honour guard was present at his funeral on this past Friday. RIP
The latest Columbia magazine was mostly on the virtual supreme convention. After reading most of the Supreme Knight’s report, I did not find or see any information on membership especially the 4th degree. Why the omission? It appears the K of C has expanded into France with 500 or so members currently.
Between the Purser SK Louis and the Comptroller SK Joe the reports have been fill out and sent in. The bank accounts are up to date with no outstanding bills at this time.
In the last note in late August the plan was to potentially have a general meeting in October. After discussing with several of the officers and with the current spike with Covid cases even though they are in southern Ontario it was decide we will not have a meeting this month. It is better to be extra cautious rather than sorry. We will plan for a tentative meeting in November and I will keep you posted.
Stay safe and healthy. Pray and ask our Heavenly Father to guide all the experts with their research work on a finding cure or vaccine.
