Dear Brothers in Christ,
We have come to the threshold of a new year! I pray that the passage into this new year of grace will inspire each of you to step over a threshold of recommitment…a resolution to take time to open your heart to the unconditional and abundant love that God offers you, walking with you in the ordinary events of each day. Christmas is a celebration of God’s coming to earth in the flesh of the Eternal Word, and not only in JESUS, the love and light of God lives in each of us also, and in all of creation…if we are open to seeing it.
Epiphany means MANIFESTATION… God is SEEN, shown to us as a human being. We marvel at the story of those “wise men”, following a star that led them to JESUS, LIGHT of the WORLD! They journeyed toward the light… just as we can journey into and through this new year, trusting in the guiding light of the Holy Spirit.
This is 2021, a new year (and we are all anxious to have a new and safe world where we can meet and serve again)! As we continue to give great physical attention to mask and social distancing from others, as an act of charity - for everyone’s safety, we could take advantage of this time to give attention to our inner spiritual health:
Even a pinpoint of light has a great effect in darkness. Let your light shine, Brothers!
The next business meeting witll be 9 May with the Rosary starting at 7pm.
Life Services Director: In preparation for the upcoming (September 2023) Cochise County Fair, we will begin inventorying existing pro-life supplies and ordering more, as needed.
St. Joseph’s Youth Camp: Brother David Sides has volunteered to run several fundraisers to raise the money for fund campers for this summer. The fundraisers will feature Krispy Kreme donuts. Volunteers are needed to help. Please contact Brother David or Brother Frank to volunteer.
The Annual CareNet Walk for Life will be held on the 20th of May, beginning at Calvary Chapel.
Elections for the next Fraternal Year will be held in the June meeting. All positions are open to any Brother who wishes to fill the seat. Incumbents may continue in their positions but any Brother may self-nominate and run for any office. Please consider beginning your travel through the chairs and nominate yourself if you would like to take a more active part in the Council.
The health of the Parish and the health of the Council are exactly the same. If the Parish is healthy, the Council is healthy. The Knights and the Church are absolutely symbiotic. As Knights, we need to focus on spiritual growth and development. As Supreme has said, we need to look again at our spirituality, to be strengthened in our spirituality as Knights and as Catholic men. This is exactly what the parish needs, as we recover from the lock downs, the pandemic, the loss of volunteers during that time. We need a spiritual renewal, a spiritual revival. During Lent, we have seen an extraordinary turnout, a response of parishioners. The Fathers have heard confessions from people who have been away from the Sacrament, one for fifty years, some for thirty or forty years. We have also seen a growth in the numbers attending Mass. There is a real movement of the Spirit. The Knights are recognized by the parishioners as the leaders. The health of the parish and council are absolutely symbiotic. The direct beneficiary of your investment in the efforts the Knights ask you to be involved in is the parish church, the Catholic Church. As Father Rob said, keep doing what you’re doing and keep doing it in the spirit in which you’re doing it.
Elections for officers for the Knights of Columbus are coming up!
