  2. 2. We had everything we needed for the Thanksgiving Distribution of the Turkey Dinners for the less fortunate, and thanks to the Knights and their families that volunteered, I believe they were all rewarded with Thanks from The St. Vincent de Paul Society members but also with the feelings of satisfaction that we were helping those less fortunate then us. Now the surprise, we were running short of vegetables and the fixings that SVDP provides along with the turkeys at Christmas. Out of nowhere a group of Far East Indians, most if not all are non-Christian Hindus, came forward and made it known they were interested in contributing needed non-meat. Hindus are primarily vegetarian, no turkeys, no stuffing and no gravy, fixings. They were told we were running short of vegetables, mash potatoes and Jell-O. They offered to provide 100 cans of Green Beans and 100 cans of corn like quantities of mashed potatoes and Jell-O, they actually donated 200 of each. They helped us put the boxes of food together and helped on the distribution. Hopefully, we will have all of the committees setup, The Knights of Columbus have some defined committees identified and although in the past we have identified Directors for the various committees, open in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

  3. 3. they didn’t really accomplish anything. Hopefully, we will have more responsibilities shared for the needs of the Council, I can’t do everything, remember all of you young wiper snappers, I’m an old man. Really I think the duties can be shared and we will be a better Council. See you Wednesday, Jan. 8 and if you are interested in the Organization meeting we will be meeting Tuesday, Jan. 7 at the Flannigan’s on Weston Rd, meeting at 7:00 if you are interested in moving the Council forward come out all are welcome.

Joe Cimino (954) 217-7763 joeciminofla@gmail.com the Epiphany which commemorates the visit of the Three Kings. They brought with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Gold represents the Divinity of Jesus. Frankincense represents the priesthood of Jesus Christ who established the new and eternal covenant for the forgiveness of sins and our eternal salvation. The myrrh, a burial spice, indicated that Jesus would die to accomplish the divine plan of salvation. When the Three Kings arrived at the stable in Bethlehem and saw the baby Jesus in the manger, they gave him homage and offered their finest gifts. My brother knights, as we begin our new year of 2014, let us pray that God give us the grace to model our lives after the Three Kings. If we do it, we, too, will give homage to Jesus and offer Him our finest gifts throughout the New year. Gratefully, Fr. Frank Worthy Recorder open in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

  8. 8. Editor's Corner: Top Saints sites Happy New Year, my fellow Catholics and non-Catholics! As part of your daily spiritual plan of life, you should include the Saints as your part of you reading. Saints are certain persons of exceptional holiness of life, formally recognized as such by the Christian Church, especially by canonization. Below are my recommended sites to review and an autobiography of St.Ignatius, the patron saint of retreats and spiritual exercises. Again, enjoy a merry and prosperous new year! http://saints.sqpn.com/ http://www.ewtn.com/saintsHoly/ open in browser PRO version Are you a developer?
