Brother Knights,

A Special Thanks to everyone that helped during our 5th Bingo week, unfortunately it was only regulars from other weeks. We need other Knights to step forward and volunteer for these 4 yearly events.

Our Council is very successful because of so many Knights & Ladies that step up and volunteer still, there is room for many, many more.

Westmont has a LUGE event - our Council is invited to participate by sending a guy & gal. Take a look after our Calendar for information and let me know if you are interested. I need volunteers.

Please continue your prayers for SK Gene Zidek, who is in the hospital and SK Jim Turner asks to add his friend Eric Petto's family. Their youngest son had brain surgery and is in need of many prayers.

Always keep all those on our Knights of Columbus prayer list.

Who are the Knights?
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.7 million members in 13000 councils. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people. The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
