Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

As we enter the month of February, the excitement of Christmas and New Years is behind us. Some say the February is a cold boring month but there is plenty of warmth and excitement in our Council.

This month we will celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Dinner Dance on February 14th. This is a chance for us to show our wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend how much we love them. Our event chairman, Carlos Sousa is preparing an evening of wonderful food, music, and dancing with Brother Enrique Neito in the kitchen and the band Mojo providing the music. Please see the flyer at right for more information.

February also marks the start of Lent. During this time of sacrifice and reflection we should all take time to consider how we can become stronger Knights and better serve our parish, community and Council. In February we will host the first of three Lenten Fish Dinners and also host one of the Parish Lenten Soup Suppers. Please contact me if you would like to assist with either of these events.

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

DGK Message


February is among us and there are some events this month that gives us the opportunity to both give and to celebrate. On February 7th, we will have our council Blood Drive which is open to everyone. If you have been wanting to give back to the community, this is a great way to do so. It is amazing what one pint of blood can do for those who are in dire need of it. So if you have a few hours of your time available for this event, please be kind and generous to donate.

On February 14th, we will have our annual Valentine’s Day Dinner and Dance. This is such a beautiful night to share with your loved ones. The food is always terrific! The band this year is amazing.

We enter further into the month of February, we as a Knights start looking forward to the beautiful season of Lent with Ash Wednesday on February 18th. Fasting can be a good thing, and God is pleased when we repent of sinful habits. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with setting aside some time to focus on Jesus’s death and resurrection, but repenting of sin is something we should be doing every day of the year not just during Lent.

I want to end this message by saying that Lent should not be a time of boasting of one’s sacrifice or trying to earn God’s favor or increasing his love. For God’s love for us could not be any greater than it already is!
