KofC Christmas Wreaths

Christmas Wreath Order Forms

Although this is a Fourth Degree Fundraiser, this article is posted here as we hope for the support of our Third Degree Brothers, families, and friends. 

 

Sherwood Forest Farms 22" Live Mixed Evergreen Christmas Wreath was so popular last year that we will again offer that same product as our winter fundraiser item for our assembly. Special thanks to all of last year's patrons for making our Christmas Wreath fundraiser so successful in 2018. We were most appreciative of the positive comments and satisfaction expressed by last year's customers. We were happy to pass that feedback to Sherwood Forest Farms and to the their wonderful associates with whom we communicated throughout that endeavor.

 

We hope that last year's recepients will decide to be patrons again this fall and support our assembly in this campaign. 

 

The Sir Knights of Assembly #1799 will begin to take orders beginning on the weekend of October 5-6, 2019. Look for our bulletin order form and listen for upcoming announcements about this fundraiser. Order forms will be made available to parishoners before and after Masses each weekend throughout the month of October. The fundraiser will end on November 4.

 

The delivery date to our assembly will be December 6. We anticipate patron pickup beginning that weekend of December 7-8 at the Religious Education Center after Masses and at TBA evening hours. This follows the same procedures as last year, which worked out very well. 

 

 The link at the beginning of this article will enable you to print a Christmas Wreath Order Form that you can fill out and bring to Mass or send via the regular mail.

Thank you for your support. 

 

Officers' Meeting and Social Hour Schedule

The Officers' Meeting has been changed to the last Tuesday of the month at 7 pm at the St. Andrew CLC. Other council members are invited to attend as observers only. Only elected and appointed positions within the council can have input at these executive sessions. This protocol was somewhat relaxed for the recent meeting since it was a transition for many positions within the council. 

 

 

The hour prior to the regularly scheduled business meeting will remain a social gathering time for members beginning at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be available until the council business meeting begins at 7 p.m. This is a great time to catch up with Brothers or get to better know new members.

Faith In Action Programs

All Knights should be familiar with the Faith in Action Programs prescribed by Supreme for all councils. What do you know about these programs? Please use the link here to browse and review these important activities. Our council must schedule, plan, and implement some of these programs as they are required by Supreme for all councils.

 

Becoming familiar with the Faith In Action Program is important for all members because:

  • you need to be able to communicate with others about the different programs and their purpose and goals
  • our council needs members to step forward who have a special interest or talent which they can offer to the success of these types of activities
  • it is suggested that you find a friend within the council who has a similar interest and agree to chair or join a committee together
  • it is a wonderful way for our members to serve our church, families, and community
  • these are things that we all really have in common with each other

Please contact the GK or the DGK if you have questions or comments about these programs. Let us know if you have a special interest or talent that you would like to share with our council to help us move forward in this endeavor. 

1,000 Ultrasounds: The KofC's Greatest Humanitarian Effort

Millions of babies have had a chance at life, thanks to 1,000 ultrasound machines donated by you and your brother Knights around the world. Congratulations to our Knights in Manassas, Va., where the 1,000th machine was just dedicated! Read about the dedication here.

 

At the dedication, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said that the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative is the greatest humanitarian effort the organization has ever undertaken.

 

“Today represents a very concrete way in which millions of lives are changed for the better by the Catholic community coming together and volunteering together,” said Anderson. “What greater legacy can a person have than to save a child’s life?”

 

As hundreds of thousands gather in Washington, D.C., to pay witness to the Culture of Life, check out the video below and share our pride in the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound program!
