From Our Chaplain

 

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: 
Spending time 

  • examining my “heart health”, resolving to take steps toward repairing relationships, forgiving myself and becoming the person that God has created and redeemed me to be.
  • examining my “seeing health”, resolving to look for and celebrate the goodness around me, seeing Christ in the eyes of those around me.
  • And examining my “hearing health”, resolving to listen for the voice of God, as He speaks to me, through Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and my conscience; listening to the deep down truth, wisdom and beliefs that are waiting for my attention and action.

Even a pinpoint of light has a great effect in darkness.  Let your light shine, Brothers!

VIVAT JESUS!

Fr. Greg
Chaplain

Fundraising

 

Join a Bingo Team!!

Help Earn Money For Your Council!!

 

 

The number of games is being reduced allowing the sessions to end earlier. 

Each member who signs in will earn $50 for the the session they work. 

Bingo is on Sunday and Wednesday evenings.

Please call the hall (520-458-3939) and join a team. 

There are four teams rotating monthly. 

That means your team would only be up once a month.

 

During the month of April, the Columbian Association donated $1950 to our council.

By lending their support, brother knights help raise needed funds to continue works of charity in our community.  

 

Brother Knights....

 

 

Are you good with numbers?

Is balancing your checkbook easy-peasy?

The Columbian Hall is looking to begin a parallel

effort for the Treasurer's position.  Ensuring a smooth tranition for

this office is important for both the bingo and event portions 

the hall requires.  Only a few flexible hours are required each week.

Please contact Treasurer David Nine at:

tres@columbian-sva.org

to learn more.  Thanks!!
