  2. 2. Brother Knights. I begin this column hoping everyone had a Happy, Blessed Thanksgiving. Our first activity of the month was the Parish Family Festival. The weather had a small impact especially Friday night we were forced to shut down an hour early. The booth revenue was down a little but not significant, I believe this was influenced by the weather and the economy. Thanks to all, the booth was fully manned during all the time the festival was opened. It seems my recent communications started with an apology, I am proud to say an apology is not necessary this time. You should be proud of the effort that was provided in support of the St. Vincent de Paul Society Thanksgiving Turkey Project. It began Saturday in support of the meal assembly project. This effort consisted of assembling 300 boxes of nonperishable side dishes in preparation of the distribution of the boxes Sunday and Monday. This consisted of Green Beans, Corn, Gravy, Packaged Mash Potatoes, Cake Mix and Icing. This was a project we performed along with the Jr. High Students at St. Bonaventure open in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API pdfcrowd.com
  3. 3. School. We assembled the boxes and the student formed an assembly line to fill the boxes. The entire effort was completed before the Knights were schedule to begin, however a number of Knights brought their student and provided the assistance in the box assembly. Sunday, we distributed 180 boxes between 2:00 and 4:00PM this included matching an appropriately sized turkey based on family size. We assembled the box and Turkey and delivered the box into the client’s car. Monday between 6:00 and 8:00pm we delivered another 120 boxes. I believe all who participated found the effort rewarding and enjoyable. I know the St. Vincent de Paul Society were very appreciative. These are the things that will help improve our image within the parish and the community. Our next effort is the building and Dedication of the Nativity Scene at the Town of Davie City Hall on December 8, the feast of the Virgin Mary’s Immaculate Conception. This is an appropriate date since the Virgin Mary is the Patron of the United States. I would like as many Knights and their families to attend.

  4. 4. many Knights and their families to attend. All Color Guard members are requested to wear full Regalia and 4th degree Knight are requested to dress out. We will be inviting all parishioners to participate. Other dates to remember are December 15 our next breakfast and Jan. 17, 2014 our next Domino Night at Elio Garcia’s home. The price will remain the same, $20.00 per person, includes, Roasted Pork, Beans and Rice. Plantains, Flan, 1st drink and a cigar. There will be a period of introduction to game, practice session for us Gringos and a tournament. We would like to actively persue presales for the tickets so we can plan and budget for this activity. A cash bar and Cigar bar after the first. All who attended our previous nights had an excellent time. All men are invited, Knights & Non-Knight, Catholics & Non-Catholics, parishioners & NonParishioners. Invite your Family and Friends they are guaranteed a good time. Watch for the announcement of the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas project. We will be duplicating the Thanksgiving effort plus distributing toys for the clients children. open in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API pdfcrowd.com

We renew our commitment to proclaim the Good News of our salvation in Jesus Christ which began with the Annunciation to Mary that she was to become the mother of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Her son was born at Bethlehem nine months later and we celebrate it on Christmas Day.

The Joy of the Gospel is available on the internet. Type in Vatican.VA and hit the the word English. It is only 217 pages. I just finished it yesterday and it is the most profound and timely document I have read on our responsibility to be evangelists to our world. My brother Knights, reading the apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, would be an outstanding preparation this Advent for our celebration of Christmas, the Good News of our salvation in Jesus Christ. If we do it, we will be ready to sing with the angels on Christmas Day, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." Gratefully, Fr.

AM Best has rated the Knights of Columbus “A++, Superior” for 38 consecutive years. This shows our track record for excellence and security. I would suggest that a principal reason that we were able to achieve those accolades is because we remain steadfastly committed to the vision of Father Michael J. McGivney by providing life insurance by brother Knights for brother Knights. That commitment is an essential core value of the Knights of Columbus, and our core values permeate all levels of our organization. These principles for marketing are summed up by our Golden Rule: “In all my professional relationships, I pledge myself to the following rule of conduct: I shall, in light of all conditions surrounding those I serve, render that service which, under the same The Story of the Connecticut Priest who found the Knights of Columbus. http://youtu.be/Jw1AOxTfT9M circumstances, I would apply to myself.” Let’s talk soon to discuss how our products can bring that peace of mind to you and your family. open in browser PRO version Are you a developer?
