Church Family Faith Meal Sponsored By Our Youth Ministry. 15791

11/18/2018


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Five council brothers, their wives and parishioners participated in a Church Family Faith Meal Sponsored By Our Youth Ministry at Saint Gregory’s Church. The meal took place in the Church Hall on Saturday November 17, 2018 following the 4 PM Mass. The object of this Free Meal put on by our Youth Ministry at Saint Gregory’s, was to say Thank You to all the Parishioners for their support during the year. This is the first annual meal for this group. With the help of a few adults, this evenings meal was an Italian Meal of Spaghetti, meat sauce, meat balls, salad, and bread. Plenty of drinks also. In working with our youth to become stronger Catholics, this dinner also acted as a reminder that family members support one another in many different ways. Being United with our Families is also answering the call as a Knight of Columbus and a Catholic. All present enjoyed the social time, and the meal very much. Thanks be to GOD.




Corporate Communion/Prayer Service for Deceased Brothers

11/18/2018


Council: 1299 - GARDINER

Project Description:

For centuries, the Church has set aside the month of November to honor the memory of those faithful who have departed our mortal company. In keeping with this tradition, the Daughters of Isabella St. Agnes Circle, and the Knights of Columbus District Eight Councils conduct a Corporate Communion in November.
Following the Mass, these two groups, representing St. Michael the Archangel Parish, each conduct their respective Prayer Services.
This year, the Daughters honored the memory of three of their Sisters. The Knights honored the memory of nine of their departed Brothers, including one of our Priests.
Canabas Council hosted the Corporate Communion and Prayer Services this year. Sadly, five of those Brothers who are no longer with us were members of Canabas Council.
Our sincere gratitude goes out to Father William Modlin for his introspection, guidance, and thoughts as he offered his homily, and, later, his introduction to the Prayer Services.




Winter Preparation

11/18/2018


Council: 1423 - No. WHITEFIELD

Project Description:

As the daylight decreases, and the weather starts to chill, it can only mean one thing: Winter is coming. This inevitable, and unavoidable fact of life, in Maine, means that certain precautions and preparations must be made.
One of these is the installation of a snow fence at the Transfiguration Hermitage, the home of three Benedictine Religious Hermits.
The fence is installed parallel to the first 200-feet of their 600-foot driveway. This year took a little longer than it has in the past. New tie-down ropes had to be cut, and new tent-pegs had to be attached, owing to fair wear-and-tear on the old ropes and pegs.
It is hard work, but well worth the effort, since it prevents a significant drifting of snow across the open field and driveway.

SCORE - low/moderate income recipient assistance

11/16/2018


Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

Assisted client in accessing funding for a transportation (cab) business she is starting in Lewiston, ME. Client is a low/moderate income person, somewhat dependent on social services. I assisted her in preparing financial projections which helped her in obtaining a $5,000 grant from the Career Center, which was used to purchase a used vehicle. The financial projections also assisted her in obtaining a low interest government loan for working capital. Client will employ another full time person, so this effort assisted in the creation of 2 new full time jobs. This will also help the client to become self sufficient.
SCORE (Service Corps) is a voluntary organization funded by the US Small Business Administration. I am a SCORE volunteer Business Mentor, and there are no fees at all charged to clients. I generally volunteer about 5-20 hours per week during the months of May-September.
