Project Description:

Eleven council brothers, two wives, and parishioners participated in our First Annual Pancake Breakfast Fund Raiser. Location of this fund raiser was Holy Martyr’s Church Hall on Sunday March 10, 2019. During our January Council Meeting it was decided to have a Pancake Breakfast this year. This was our first ever Pancake Breakfast Fund Raiser, and it was a total success. On Friday balloons were blown up and assembled by one of our parishioners from Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth. On Saturday the hall was set-up, tables decorated in preparation for Sunday. Thanks to the wives of knights who did the decorating. On Sunday the volunteers from our council started arriving early to start preparing the food. The menu consisted of Blueberry Pancakes, sausage, and assorted breads and desserts were there for those who wished to participate in the breakfast. As stated above we had great support from our council from 11 members and 2 wives. The reason for this brunch was to promote fellowship between our knights families, and the non-knight parish families. In taking a survey of the attendees from both the 8:30 AM Mass and the 10:30 AM Mass the food was very delicious. We also ran a 50/50 during this Brunch. Our of our Council Guards was in charge of the 50/50. We didn’t charge a fee for this brunch, it was all by donation. We were pleased to have our District Deputy in attendance today, along with Fr. Paul Marquis. Also attending today was a visiting Priest Fr. Steven Bell, who will be conducting our 3 day Retreat starting tomorrow. Our Financial Secretary reported we took in $307.00 to help with our yearly Charities. We look forward to council sponsored Brunch or Breakfast at Holy Martyr’s Church Hall. This is what being a Knight of Columbus is all about, supporting Charity, and being United. Our heartfelt thanks to the Office Staff for their help with the advertising, and to our Pastor Fr. Daniel Greenleaf for allowing us to use the hall this day for this Blessed meal. GOD is good.

A request was received for financial support for an Elderly lady, who’s only transportation is a powered wheelchair, in need of new batteries. This lady was brought into the Catholic Faith by a Brother Knight Terry Hannan and his wife Cozy last year, the lady who would be in her wheelchair on on the street, desired to be part of the Catholic Faith so that she could go into the Church and pray along with all those she seen come and go. Cozy and Terry made her desires come to life, they saw to it that she got to the RCIA meetings, and they sponsored her all the way through. Now, her powered transportation ended with dead batteries, this transportation is her freedom in this world, and the Hannan’s got right after obtaining funds from the Parish, persona dn the Knights.

Marian Prayer Program- Persecuted Christians

03/07/2019


Council: 114 - BANGOR

Project Description:

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson had disseminated the Marian Prayer Program and Portrait of “Our Lady Help Of Persecuted Christians” for us to use as a reminder and request for Prayer of our fallen and or desperate Catholic Christians in the Middle East.

Pine Cone Council asked and found the perfect person to take this program throughout the Parish, disseminating over 600 prayer cards over a two week period.

Brother/Sir Knight Wayne MacDonald retired Minister and now convened Catholic took this Marian Prayer Program and visited Reverend Father Frank Murray who happily allowed Wayne to visit every Mass in the six church Parish community. Wayne, set-up a table, placed prayer cards over the complete top of the table, so parishioners after hearing from the Pulpit from the Priest that this program was going on, made available to all these prayer cards. About 623 prayer cards were taken during this event, a testimony to Wayne’s and Supreme Knight Carl Anderson’s prayerful hope to have many persons praying for the Persecuted Christians of the World.

Great Job, Wayne, thanks for displaying the Portrait of our Lady Mary in this Prayer Program so openly and respectfully.




Novena for Life

03/07/2019


Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

12 members of our council prayed The Novena for Repentance, Renewal and Rebuilding. Our 12 members joined this 9 day Novena for Life being prayed by Knights of Columbus all over the world as the bishops meet to discuss the sexual abuse crisis.

The abuse and cover up seems to be in the media nightly and prayers are needed now more than ever. As a victim I know nothing can ever undo the harm and trauma done but to move on one must forgive your perpetrator, your church and even God himself. Reconciliation is one of the cornerstones our of faith and without it recovery is not possible.

Let us all pray that our church can move forward with proper and thorough policies that protect the innocent.
