Navigating Our Way

Brother Knights,

I would like to wholeheartedly thank you for your support over this past year as we have navigated our way out of full restrictions and continue to ease back into the ways that we did things prior to COVID-19. This is still an ongoing process where we hit roadblocks, such as caterers we once used closing down, facilities not being available when we would have liked them, to event chairs health conditions or age preventing them from running an event that they had run for many years prior to the lockdown.

We have been blessed however that we have a dedicated core group of Brother Knights who come together to pull off the events that we have hosted and events that are currently in the works, and I want to thank them all for their hard work and dedication in getting our council back up and running and keeping it going.

With that being said, I would also like to reach out to everyone who reads this and express that we need your help. We must not burn them out. Many hands make light work. The committee’s, events, and even meetings that we have are a great opportunity for fraternal bonding, and coming out of a pandemic that involved lockdowns, fraternity is a vital element to our nature as men and as men of faith.

I understand that having the time for this is low on the priority list, but you may find it to be good for your mental health and stress levels alongside bringing you closer to Christ through charity, as well as being beneficial to your family. Remember that we are brother’s, sometimes brothers may be driven away for a time for one reason or another, but as family you are always welcome at the table when you are ready to come home. God bless you.

Vivat Jesus!
