Helping A Fellow Brother and his Wife. 15791

06/15/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Three council brothers assisted a council brother and his wife in moving and lifting furniture at their home in Gray. This detail took place during Saturday June 8, 2019. Our council chancellor and his wife has been packing and moving smaller items into their new senior housing unit for the last couple of weeks. On Saturday it was time to move the heavy items such as the piano, sofa bed etc. Its’ so rewarding as knights to be able to help one another in our time of need. During the year we are so involved in helping others that we have a tendency to forget ourselves, and what we mean to one another as Knights of Columbus Families. Thanks to GOD our day was successful.

Council Berivement Program. 15791

06/14/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Five council Brothers have worked tirelessly in supporting our Council Bereavement Program within the Parish of the Holy Eucharist. We have been busy since July , 2018 with many request for help in support of our council brothers, their families and even some families who are not connected with the Knights. Myself and our Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight work as a team in seeing that Family and Individual names are collected. Following that our Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight will connect up with the family to see where we can be of help. I myself am in charge of seeing that Mass cards, Memorial Cards, Flowers or donations are sent to the correct family member and or location. If there is a family who request a donation be made in lieu of flowers then our Grand Knight and our council financial team will meet and a check is written and sent out. We have been working with this program since the formation of our council in 2013. Reaching out to those in need, that’s what the Knights of Columbus are all about. May the soul of the faithfully departed rest in PEACE.




In Support Of Our Seminarian and Council Member. 15791

06/14/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

One of our council brothers, his wife and I, have continued once again this fraternal year in corresponding with our Seminarians and Council Brother. This process took place once again took place in our private homes, Parish Worship sites, and our business meetings. As our Seminarians enter Summer they have another year to look forward to in their schooling to become Priest’s. We have communicated in many ways with our Seminarians once again this year, by sending them e-mails, birthday cards, Special cards during holidays, such as Christmas, Easter etc. There were also a few times when he would be here in the state that we would make time to visit with him and he would attend our meetings. As a council we would always make sure that each and every card sent would be brought to the Council Business Meeting first and signed by those Brothers present. We MUST as a Knights of Columbus Council keep our Seminarians on the top of our support list. Without the support from the Knights the Seminarian Program would not continue to grow in the State of Maine. GOD Bless our Seminarians and those who support the Seminarian Program.




Weekly Communion to the Shut-In's. 15791

06/14/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Four Council Brothers have served as our Lords helpers as Extraordinary Ministers within their communities during the months of March 2018 through mid June 2019. Because of our Deacon’s recent notice to our council that our Parish community was in need of additional Extraordinary Ministers to cover the Communities of Gray, Falmouth and Yarmouth our brothers once again stepped up to face the challenge. With the passing of one of our long time Community Ministers these brothers took the challenge on. Stepping forward in the need of others our council brothers continue to shine in all area’s of our Council, Church and Community. With the passing or the moving of the shut-In’s during the last couple of months, the ministry duty has increased in some towns, with additional requests. I am sure soon the call will go out again for their service’s. Brother Knights answering the call.




2019 Retention Team Efforts. 15791

06/13/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Six Council Officers worked together as a team in our private homes and Parish Worship Sites from February 1 threw March 30, 2019 to help our Council Financial Secretary close out the collection of dues from nine of our council members. In order to keep our membership numbers up we spent at least 30 hours of making phone calls, sending emails, and making personal contact with nine members who were delinquent in paying their 2019 council dues. It was unfortunate that we were unable to get one member to pay his dues. Recruiting is very important for each council in our state, just like retention is very important. Since our Formation in 2013 we have moved ahead as this council’s Retention Team in maintaining a solid roster, and a pretty active membership. We are in hopes that 2019-2020 will be a stronger year in recruiting, and our membership will consider paying their membership dues promptly.




GO GREEN Collection Weekend. 15791

06/13/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Four council brothers, parishioners and Boy Scouts worked as a Team in this years first annual “GO GREEN Collection Weekend” at the Parish of the Holy Eucharist during the weekend of June 8 and 9, 2019. As Catholics, we are all called to care for the earth and be good stewards of the environment. In Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis calls on the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. During the weekend, our parish worked together as a team in taking up this call and donating any and all electronic equipment. The equipment should be brought to the churches and dropped off in the collection containers. The organizers at Catholic Charities were very pleased with the donations for e-Waste. The funds they received will be used to support the environmental programs supported by Catholic Charities. Moreover, we received a number of requests to sign up for the e-Bulletin and e-Giving(We Share). This will help us reduce cost and waste by going paperless. The care for our common home is an expression of our love for our Creator who gave it to us. The call to simplicity of life and making things better than we found it are as old as the writings of our saints. Hopefully, over the year, we will together continue the call to reduce, reuse and recycle as we care for God’s creation.

St Joseph Church Food Pantry

Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

St Joseph Church Food Pantry serves Bridgton, Fryeburg and other communities by providing a food pantry visited by indigent clients who have to provide food for their families. The Food Pantry takes delivery of primarily processed retail food items from the Good Shepherd Food Bank, and provides these to clients on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Essentially, clients load up food shopping carts with food their families need – all food is free of charge. Generally, the Food Pantry serves about 40-60 families each Tuesday it is open.
Food is delivered to the Food Pantry on the 2nd Monday of each month, and has to be unpacked from the Good Shepherd food truck, and stored at St Joseph Church, Bridgton. On Monday, June 10, I assisted unloading and storing the food for about 2 hours. There were about 6 other parish members assisting in this effort.
