Recognition and Farewell

to

 Past Grand Knight Steve Moore

 

On Thursday, March the 18th, Council 5750 recognized Past Grand Knight Steve Moore for the many contributions he has made to this Council.  In addition to being  being inducted as a Past Past Grand Knight, PGK Moore was given a fond farewell as he prepares to leave the area.  PPGK Moore reflected on his many years with the Council, in addition to being Grand Knight twice, he was also the long time Treasurer for the Council.  He has been an active member and contributed to the success of this Council in many ways.

 

Council 5750 wishes PPGK Moore the best of luck in his future endeavors and thanks him for all he has done for the Council and the Parish.

Congratulations to the

Family of the Month

February 2021

     The Rojas Family

 

Fernando Rojas, a PGK, has been the membership director for the council this year and is largely responsible for this council being on the verge of doubling our membership goal. He has spent many hours ensuring that the council's implementation of the new exemplification ceremony have been stellar.

 

His wife, Claudia, volunteers one day a week in the parish office, doing whatever is necessary, including using her Spanish speaking skills to talk to Spanish speakers on the phones as well as walk-ins.

 

Fernando and Claudia are both Extraordinary Ministers, and assist with hand sanitizer when not actually distributing the Eucharist. Recently, they took home several boxes of the St. Joseph prayer cards to fold so that they were ready last weekend for all the Masses. They also attended the recent Parish Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto in Emmitsburg, MD.

 

Fernando and Claudia are always looking for various ways to assist OLA parish. They truly model Catholic family values on a continuing basis.


 

Nominations for

Family of the Month

 

The Council is seeking nominations for Family of the Month (FOM).   I would certainly guess there is no shortage of deserving families. You may nominate families not associated with the Knights of Columbus as long as they display devotion to one or more of the following:  promoting Christian family values, supporting community or school activities, participation as a family in the sacramental life of their parish.  Please pass your nomination to Grand Knight Chuck Wheeler.  Nominations can also be done via this website in the "Members Only" section, please click here:  Nominations


 


Meeting Minutes

The Minutes from January and February are available for review in the Members section of this site.  Please review prior to the March Business Meeting.


 

Parish Raffle Sale Support

 
We have a special request for support from our pastor, Father Alvaro. OLA parishioners have been participating for the past 20+ years in the All Saints Car Raffle.  This year, it is back at the parish and ALL proceeds will go to OLA. 
 
10 tickets will be mailed to every registered parishioner family this week.  Starting next weekend (Feb 13-14) we will be selling extra tickets after Masses in the narthex almost every weekend until April 17th...nine weekends total.  
 
Father Alvaro and the parish need your help!  Father has been very supportive of our Council, and we haven't had a lot of opportunity as a Council to really serve the parish for quite a while with a project of this scale!
 
We would like to have one volunteer to be responsible for overseeing tickets sales for a full weekend.  That volunteer (your wife can help) will have other volunteers covering Masses.  Can you volunteer to oversee one weekend or volunteer to sell tickets before and after a Mass?  Also it would be nice to have Spanish speakers for Spanish Masses.
 
For more information and to sign up for this worthy project please click on this link:  Raffle Sales.

Bishop’s Lenten Appeal

 

Father Álvaro has asked that we make a concerted push to encourage sacrificial participation in the annual Bishop’s Lenten Appeal (BLA), and that we do so prior to Ash Wednesday if at all possible.  In the current COVID environment there is greater need than ever in the Arlington Diocese for the assistance provided by the BLA.  Many of you have probably already received Bishop Burbidge’s 2021 BLA appeal letter which contains information about how to donate.  If you do not have the letter, be alert for the BLA information that will be provided during upcoming weekend Masses at Our Lady of Angels Church.


Visiting Priest in Need

 

Council 5750 Worthy Past Grand Knight Komla Kudiabor has requested assistance from Council brothers on behalf of Fr. Joseph Ocran, currently serving at St. Lawrence Parish in Springfield.  Fr. Ocran is from Ghana.  He has one year to complete his course in Clinical Psychology.  The Archdiocese in Accra, Ghana, is having challenges supporting him further due to the continuing impacts of COVID.  The total amount needed is $12,230 for his last year to ensure that his previous three years of study do not go to waste.

 

Checks should be made payable to: St. Lawrence Catholic Church

6222 Franconia Rd.

Springfield, VA 22310
