Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

This year the month of March in filled with the solemnity and sacrifice of Lent. Alms giving is a strong Lenten tradition. The word “alm” derives from the ancient Greek word for compassion. Alms giving includes not just giving of money and food but also the donation of our time in service to others. Alms giving is not just a handout to the needy but what we give can change the lives of those that receive.

I ask you during Lent to pay particular attention to the charitable works our Council does and find a way to get involved. Whether it’s helping out with one of the Elderly Bingo nights, volunteering a few hours at our Thursday/Sunday Bingo or prayerfully witnessing outside the local abortion clinic, what you give during Lent can make a significant difference in the lives of those that need our charity.

On March 21st we will be hosting our Annual Ladies Appreciation Night. All of the work and time that we devote to our Council would not be possible without the love and support of our wives and the members of the Ladies Auxiliary. Please plan to attend this wonderful event and show these ladies how much we appreciate their support!

As a reminder, if you are behind in paying your dues it’s not too late. Please contact me or the Financial Secretary Dan Lavery to discuss how you can become current. By keeping your dues current it ensures you and your family have access to all the Fraternal Benefits available to our members. .

Vivat Jesus,

Milt Shomo
Grand Knight

With the month of March upon us, we continue are Lenten sacrifice. On both March 13th and March 27th we will have our fish fry dinner available to everyone. The dinner starts at 5PM and the bar will be open to those who will like some refreshments at bar room prices.

On March 21st, we will have our annual Ladies Appreciation Dinner. This is such a beautiful night to share with the lovely ladies of George Brent Council who give of themselves unselfishly to ensure that the events being held in the hall are always taken care of. From decorating the hall, to serving breakfast on Sundays to providing snacks at council events. This event is free for the Ladies with a minimum cost for the men. The food will be terrific!

Write this down on your calendar, March 28th 2015. George Brent Council will have our annual Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. This event is free for all of our children of George Brent Council. Please RSVP to John Masarik so that he can ensure there will be plenty of food for all of those who plan to attend. Later that night will be the Last Supper Presentation which will be held at All Saints at 7PM.
