Coats for Kids

12/30/2018


Council: 10019 - LEWISTON

Project Description:

This year our council donated sixty coats to boys and girls, through the Dominican Sisters at their Sabattus, Loaves and Fishes organization. Nicole Daigle, is one of their representatives that agreed to locate deserving families in need and contacted them to schedule time and date of pick-up. November 14th, was set for the coat distribution. Five cases, with sixty coats were unloaded at the convent, Brother Knights Robert Roberge, Alfred Viens, Matthew Viens, Michael Blab, Gerard Poulin with his wife Pauline and Robert Dumond, were there to lend a helping hand. The volunteer knights were eager to help fit each child with a properly fitting coat.
What a delight to see these poor kids select a coat, hat, mittens and scarf of their choosing. Many of them no doubt receiving for the first time new clothes, not hand me downs. Their happy smiles were our reward.
The good Dominican Sisters are always receiving requests of this type, now they can accommodate the requests immediately. Yes, there was enough for all, with leftovers kept for another day, one that would come all too soon enough.




First Annual Consecration Of The Holy Family And Rosary. 15791

12/30/2018


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Forty Three Council Brothers, wives and parishioners set-up and participated in our First Annual Consecration Of The Holy Family Weekend. To help families live out the joy of Christ, our Pastor Fr. Daniel Greenleaf and the Parish Knights of Columbus sponsored a “Consecration to the Holy Family” prayer at each of the weekend Masses during December 29 and 30, 2018. In this prayer, we ask for the aid or intercession of the perfect son Jesus Christ, Mary the perfect mother, and Joseph who is a model for every father. Participating in the Consecration to the Holy Family is not a single event. It is choosing a way of life for your family. Through this Consecration, each participant is consciously choosing to be a beacon of God’s love through one’s Church.
Today’s families are diverse, but the one element which is sacred to all families is the call to love. Strong and faith-filled Families are the foundation for a healthy and holy community. May we all model ourselves after the Holy Family and ask for their intercession for holiness. Also conducted this weekend was the Rosary of Mary recited at Saint Gregory on Saturday December 29 at 3:30 pm, and Holy Martyrs in the Chapel on Sunday December 30, 2018 at 10:00 am as part of the event. We had a nice showing of Parishioners and Brother Knights for the Rosary, (48) Our heartfelt thanks not only goes out to Fr. Daniel Greenleaf, but also Fr. Peter Kaseta, Fr. Paul Marquis, our resident Deacon Dennis Popadak, and visiting Seminarian Joe Moreshead for all their help and support. In closing a special thanks goes out to the Parish Office Staff, and our Parish Parishioners for their help and attendance, by their participation this weekend. We look forward to conducting our Second Annual Consecration Of The Holy Family Weekend in 2019.
