Grand Knight's Message for March, 2017
March 1st was Ash Wednesday and the start of the season of Lent. Thanks to Brother Bob Leach, we will be inviting our St. Rose family to join The Dynamic Catholic for Best Lent Ever. It’s a free, videobased email program presented by Matthew Kelly. This could be y our Best Lent Ever! Look for the insert in this Sunday’s bulletin.
On Saturday, March 11th at 6:30 p.m., we will have our annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance featuring The Bobby Byrne Show. He has made us part of his farewell tour which will end December 2017. If you have never seen his show and have reserved a ticket, you are in for a treat. Brothers Andy Liebhauser, Bob Leach, Rich Koscielak, PGK Chris Virginio and many others are involved in making this show memorable. I look forward to seeing you there.
Another Saint very special to me, Saint Joseph, will be celebrated on Sunday March 19th. The father of Jesus taught his son the way of life on Earth. He wasn’t a King, but simply a carpenter who worked hard every day, happy with the simpler things in life. Growing up, my family would celebrate by eating pasta with lentils and cream puffs for dessert.
On March 19th we will also have our Membership Blitz. One of our Brother Knights said that we are like the Marines looking for a “few good men”. So after Mass on Sunday, please come out and support your Brother Knights by recruiting a new member.
The weekend of March 25th-26th will begin our Handicapped Citizens Drive. This is our largest fundraiser of the year. If you are able to help, please reach out to Brother Rich Koscielak and he will give you a time and location to collect funds for this special cause. Remember that we are no longer collecting at intersections.
Remember to move your clocks ahead next weekend. Winter is almost over.
Please keep the following people, who are sick, in your prayers:
Finally, if you haven’t already, please pay your dues. If you have paid them, I thank you. Any questions, please feel free to call or email me at my contact info below.
Happy Birthday to all my Brother Knights born in March! Vivat Jesus,
