Assisting Retired Priest

Council: 2219 - WESTBROOK

Project Description:

A group of Brother Knights from council #2219 have looked after Fr. Reggie on a monthly basis helping with a variety of projects such as repairing his home, helping with computer issues, helping with yard work, cleaning out his cellar and making certain he knows we’re here for him. We make certain to take him out to dinner monthly while others drop off meals. We invite Fr to all church functions and the women are sure he leaves with meals for the week.

Attending our District Deputy's Winter District Meeting. 15791

01/20/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

I along with several other district members participated in the District 13 Winter Meeting which was held at Saint Pius Church Hall in Portland on Saturday January 19, 2019. In order for councils within the state to keep up on all the up-dates, changes, and any new programs being offered, it is important for our District Deputy to conduct a Winter and Summer District Meeting each year. This year there was a number of things discussed to include the NEW Faith in Action Program. Gathering with my fellow district officers at this meeting is a break from our monthly council meetings. STATE ADVOCATE Michael Giroux was present for this meeting representing our State Deputy. Also present was our new benefits agent for this area, Brother Mark Adams. Also as part of this meeting a meal was put on by the host council. As always our District Deputy presented a well put together meeting.

Communicating With Our Seminarians During The Advent Season. 15791

01/20/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Two council brothers, and our two council Seminarians participated this year in our council’s 5th year of exchanging Advent cards and letters during the month of December 2018 from our Parish Worship Sites and Private Homes. As in the last 5 years our Council Seminarian Director, and Council Chancellor provided each of our council members the mailing address of our two Seminarians and encouraged all of them and their families, to send a card of Blessing to the Seminarians during the Advent season. Our Council Seminarian Director has also sent out birthday cards along with our council members. This year two birthday cards were passed around at the November Business Meeting and all present signed them. It is very important to keep connected with the Seminarians and send them well wishes and prayers as they stride to become a Priest of the future. GOD Bless them both.
