Memorial Service for a Fallen Brother Knight
Council: 13181 - SABATTUS
Council #13181 hosted a Knights memorial service for the passing of Brother Knight Joseph Bourgoin. Brother Knight Bourgoin passed away during the pandemic and so the mass and memorial service was delayed. In spite of that, several Knights and family members gathered for a special mass and memorial service for him. Brother Knight Bourgoin was active in our Council from nearly the inception of the Council until his health challenges prevented him from participating in regular activities in roughly 2019. The Brother Knights that participated in the memorial service include: Robert Michaud, Ivan Boudreau, Dan Bouffard, Dave Devoe, James Ingalls, and Don Champagne. The prayer service concluded with the Resolution of Condolence presented to his wife Pauline.
The participation of the Knights along with the prayer service and participation in their funerals was very well received and emphasized the celebration of life from conception, to their natural deaths.
