40 Days for Life
For those of you that couldn't make it to the business meeting last night, here are some activities and dates of note.
Our Faith Director Brother Larry Cross gave a presentation on St. Joseph. Brother Larry asked that we all pray the Rosary during the next month, seeking the intercession of St. Joseph.
One way to do that is to join us every Saturday at 10am to pray the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. 1st Saturdays are Prayer in the Square, in the west parking lot by the LOTW sign. All of the other Saturdays are up in the Memorial Brick Garden, until the construction on the Rosary Garden is finished.
There are in person and virtual 4th Degree Patriotic Degrees scheduled for Saturday May 8th in Fort Lupton, and Saturday June 5th at St. Francis Cabrini in Littleton. If you are a 3rd Degree Knight and are interested in advancing to the 4th Degree, please reach out to SK Ted Hand at email@example.com.
If you need to get to the 3rd degree, the council at St. Francis Cabrini is holding an inperson new ceremonial on May 23rd. We will be holding our own in person new ceremonial for all interested new, 1st and 2nd degree Knights, who are interested in advancing to the 3rd Degree sometime in June. Once we have a date, I will forward the information out. If it has been awhile since you advanced in your degree journey, please to some time to consider these opportunities.
May 8th is the annual LOTW grounds clean up.
May 15th we have our Knights Highway clean up at 8am.
Thanks to Deacon Mark and all the brothers that attended the ultrasound presentation at Alternatives on April 14th. It was a wonderful and very moving event. The ultrasound machine that was purchased using the funds generated by our annual 5K, with matching funds from Supreme, was blessed by our own Deacon Mark, with great appreciation from the Alternatives staff.
If you missed our first ever Mental Health Forum event that was held on April 15th, I think it is still viewable on the LOTW.org website. Thanks to Dr. Jim Langley and Brother Bob Knueven for making that happen.
Thanks to all of you that volunteered and your families that supported the Fish Frys this year. If you picked up a bulletin this past weekend there was a paragraph about the event on the last page, before the advertisements. We served 498 meals and raised $2500.00.
Thanks to all of you and your families that participated in the 40 Cans for Lent Food Drive. The Food Pantry received quite a bit of extra food from the effort.
We are planning on holding the Respect Life 5K this year. If you would like to get involved in the planning please reach out for Brother John Bullock. The event is scheduled for July 24th. We are looking for a kitchen lead for the breakfast.
Congrats to our Knight of the Month, Brother Ted Hand.
Congrates also to our Family of the Month, Mike and Kathy Hadock. If you know Mike and Kathy, please don't say anything yet, since I plan on presenting the certificate to them at Prayer in the Square this Saturday.
I know the blood banks are experiencing a severe shortage at this time. Since our Blood Drives are still pending, please consider donating blood at either Children's Hospital or at Vitalant.
I hope that all of you and your families are well. We have some good things coming up, and annual programs that will be making a comeback in 2021.
Please pray for each other, all of our brother Knights and family members that are need of some intercession, mercy, and grace.
