The Grand Knight's Message.....

Happy Fall !!!!

Our next meeting is Tue, October 1st starting with our Social at 5:30 followed by the Fraternal meeting at 7:00 pm. Included in this meeting will be the 1st Degree initiation of some new members.

I am trying to keep the Calendar updated, so if you see something that isn't there or needs an update, please let me know.

THE AID TO WOMEN CENTER GALA was held on Sat, Sept 14th at the Doubletree hotel in Tempe. Our Council was proud to sponsor 1 table for this worthwhile and moving event.

Arizona Rosary Sunday - Phoenix will be held at the Phoenix Convention Ctr on Sunday, 10/20 starting at 2:00pm. There will also be a dinner that Sat evening at St Simon and Jude. More details to follow. We (Council) will furnish an air-conditioned bus that day. We will have information at the donut table with signups for the bus during October.

Veteran's Day/Honor Flight Dinner Event - Nov 9th starting at 6:00 at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament on 64th St., Scottsdale. We have begun advertising the event and selling tickets each Sunday near the Donut Table. For more information, see the page on this site for the Veteran's Day/Honor Flight Event.

Our April Meeting is being moved back to 3/31/2020 because of Holy Week. The Officer's Meeting is being moved back to 3/26/2020

AS ALWAYS.......

We look forward to again gaining the Star Council award for the upcoming Fraternal Year. In order to do this we need to recruit new members, gain new insurance/annuity accounts and fulfill the steps outlined in our Faith in Action Guide.

As Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said, "If we can't meet young Catholic men where they are, they will go somewhere else. And in this era, it is too easy to go somewhere else when we need them to be home. Home in the Catholic Church, home in their parishes, and home with their families."

We look forward to helping our parish, our church leaders, our fellow parishioners, our community and ourselves !!

Vivat Jesus !!
