In closing out our fifth successful year participating in the “Program for People with Disabilities” our Council Chancellor made the check presentations at Holy Martyr’s Church on Tuesday October 2, 2018 to the winners. One of the winners was unable to make it last evening, so their check was mailed to them. This year’s representatives were from “Maine Special Olympics” in Portland for the Lobster Dip Team, Riding To The Top Therapeutic Riding Center of Windham, and the Travis Mills Foundation in Augusta. This presentation was conducted at the beginning of our October Council Business Meeting. All who worked our Drive Weekend was very pleased as to how much was raised. This year we were able to present three $600.00 checks to the recipients. The recipients were very happy that the Knights of Columbus of the Parish of the Holy Eucharist considered their organizations for these nice donations. Following the presentation photo’s were taken.




Yearly Red Mass Celebration. 15791

10/02/2018


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

My family and I once again this year participated in the Red Mass Celebration with many of my colleagues and parishioners at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday September 30, 2018 at the 10 AM Mass. The bishop told the assembly that this year’s Red Mass comes at a particularly challenging time for both our country and Church, and that the answer in both periods of difficulty may be the same. The Red Mass is a tradition that dates back to the early Middle Ages when Pope Innocent IV is said to have invited the Ecclesiastical Judicial Court in 1243 to gather to ask God’s blessing through the invocation of the Holy Spirit on the work that would be conducted in the court. We have attended this Mass for a number of years now, and each time we find ourselves very much up-lifted after this Mass. As in the past our Bishop’s have always given us strength and hope for the future. This year has been a good example of needing this strength and hope. This year we also took time after Mass to attend the reception after Mass and socialize.




5th Sunday Rosary

10/01/2018


Council: 114 - BANGOR

Project Description:

This fifth Sunday Praying of the Rosary on September 30th, 2018 at the 8:30 AM Mass at St. Mary’s Church had 16 brothers participating with approximately five hundred congregates in attendance, the church was full.
The Knights provided the leadership in planning, publicizing and organizing the praying of our rosary before Mass. It helped clear the mind and we came together in a prayerful way, what clarity of thought, and the presence of Jesus Christ comes over you. Just love this effort and all it’s goodness to the parish life.
Through pray we hope that our faith community follows the example and will pray the rosary on their own and in their homes.

Thank you brothers in Christ.




Annual Council Lobster Dinner

10/01/2018


Council: 114 - BANGOR

Project Description:

Pine Cone Council 114 had a tremendously busy summer with several Church events, during a period of time when councils try to relax a bit and enjoy family time.
On September 15th, 2018 at St. John’s Church Hall, the Knights came together to share in fellowship, and to enjoy a great meal.
It’s tradition to begin the Fraternal Year with our kick-off Lobster Dinner. One of our Brother Knights is a lobsterman, and we purchased 70 lobsters from him.

80 persons joined in for the dinner, the meal was fantastic; lobster or baked chicken, baked potato, corn on the cob, Cole slaw, rolls, melted butter, and strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream. Brothers, this was one delicious meal!

We had three Priests in attendance and two Sisters of Mercy; the conversations were great, and people stayed around for a long time after the meal was completed. All in all, a great evening of fellowship and a great start of our Fraternal Year in Building up ourChurch community.




Coming To The Aid Of A Fellow Veteran. 15791

10/01/2018


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

One of our council fourth degree members answered the call from a brother Veteran in his neighborhood during the months of July through September, 2018. During July he was approached by this brother Veterans grand-son and asked if he might have the time to transport his grandfather to Togus Hospital for his medical appointments during the months of July through September? Due to having major surgery during late June he was unable to drive, thus he would not be able to make his doctor’s appointments. Looking at my calendar and talking it over with my wife, they were able to move some appointments around so he could help our fellow brother veteran out in HIS time of need. Being a Viet-Nam Era veteran myself, I know how much he and his grand-son appreciated our help. Now that we are into October and his medical condition has improved enough to let our Veteran Brother drive again, he is looking forward to once again driving himself to his appointments to Togus. Helping those in need is job one when it come to being a Knight of Columbus and a Catholic. Thanks Be To GOD.

Funeral Mass for Brother Knight

09/30/2018


Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

On 9/27/18 66 family and friends meet at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Bridgton, Maine to celebrate a funeral mass of a fellow brother Knight.

Tragically our brother Knight died unexpected in an accident at home.

It was very apparent that this man shared a deep relationship with both our Lord and his family.

He was very involved with our council for many years until his health declined in recent years. It was an honor to call this man a friend and a brother Knight, he shall be missed. Our council will of course reach out to his widow for any assistance that she and her family might need.
