Dear Fraternal Leader,
The Knights of Columbus is carefully monitoring the coronavirus situation and its impact on
the Order. Since the virus is spread by personal contact, containment efforts stress social
distancing by restricting travel, meetings and other gatherings. Accordingly, the Supreme
Council most strongly recommends the following actions to protect brother Knights and others:

• Cancel all personal contact meetings, including business meetings, until further notice.
• Cancel all planned events, where people would gather, until further notice.
• Cancel all travel for Knights of Columbus business until further notice.


There are many ways to continue council operations without face to face contact. Here are
some suggestions:
• Conduct meetings by conference call, Skype, Google Groups or other methods.
• Use a webinar service for large meetings like monthly business meetings.
• Allow member votes by email or text to approve bills and candidate admissions.
• Use the email feature of Officers Online for member communications.
• Set up a call tree to contact members and ascertain their wellbeing.
• Conduct degree ceremonies in homes using the combined Exemplification of Charity,
Unity and Fraternity video or the First Degree video.
• Use applications like “Go fund me” to digitally raise funds for causes.


Additional information is available for members and their families on the websites of
the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL and WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. Be aware
that the elderly and sick are highly vulnerable to this disease.
This is a moment to deepen our commitment to the very principles which define us: charity,
unity and fraternity. There will likely be many opportunities in coming weeks to live out these
principles in service to our brother Knights, our families and our communities. May this time of
difficulty also be a moment when we as Knights step into the breach and show ourselves to be
disciples of Jesus Christ and men at the service of others.

Columbian Award for 2017 - 2018

Thank You from the Knights of Columbus

 

Knight at the Races is one of the fundraising events which enables us to support our Parish, the local community and various worthwhile causes.  On Saturday November 18th, we held the event to raise money for the victims of the recent hurricanes.

We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported this event.  Together we were able to raise $1,000.  We hope to see you at future Knight at the Races events (our next one will be in April), where hopefully you will have a good time and even win a little money!

Thank you again for your support!

Dear Brothers in Christ,

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

 

Now that we are in a new Columbian year, we are renewing our fundraising efforts by selling C&B (Charitable & Benevolent) Chance Books. The funds raised by these sales will go towards the Council's mission of helping the needy among us as well as various New York State programs including: Religious Vocations, Pro-Life Programs, Youth Programs, Catholic Education and Charitable Works of Mercy.

 

Many of us have been blessed.  If at all possible, we would appreciate it if you can help the less fortunate by purchasing or selling two books.  Ticket books are $10.00 each.  Better yet, should you believe you can sell more books, please contact the undersigned at (631) 873-7233 (cell).  I am the Chair of our C&B Fundraiser Program and will get you as many books as you require. Please return the completed book stubs along with a check made to the order of "The Knights of Columbus Council 7479" to my attention at the address listed above by November 22, 2017.

 

If you have not been able to attend one of our council meetings in a while, we would love to see you at our next meeting. Our business meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 p.m. Our social meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m.  We meet in Msgr. Goggin Hall at St. Matthew.

 

Thank you for your consideration and support.

 

Vivat Jesus,

Glenn
