Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

On Mother’s Day May13th 2019 Council 11376 Bridgton/Fryeburg held its annual Mother’s Day Breakfast at St. Joseph’s in Bridgton ME
The mothers and grandmothers enjoyed a breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes, coffee and juice at no cost and each received a carnation after the Saturday and Sunday Mass and at the breakfast.
This annual event brings families together not only from the parish but also from the surrounding communities to honor mothers and grandmothers on their special day.

This small event annually provides one way to do just that.




Attendance at State Capitol at Senate vote for Abortion bill

05/14/2019


Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG

Project Description:

Three Council members and a Knight’s wife and her three children, ages six to ten years traveled to the State Capitol to lobby the State Senate to vote against bill LD 820 to provide taxpayer funding for abortions. The pro-abortionists’ arguments were mostly for a financial reasons. The pro-life representatives spoke on moral issues. Two of those representatives related heart wrenching personal stories where the were forced to make life or death
decisions because of fetal complications and chose life which turned out to be the best decision they ever made. In spite of forceful arguments, the Maine Senate passed the bill on a 19 to 16 vote. The vote will now go to the Maine Governor, a fanatical pro-choice proponent who will sign it into law. The consensus among the pro-lifers who were present was….”We will be back”!

On May 8th 2019 10 Brother Knights of Council 11376 Bridgton/Fryeburg, their spouses and our Pastor and the Council Chaplin, also Brother Knights, attended the annual Council social at the Campfire Grill in Bridgton Maine. Our Pastor led us in an opening prayer followed by a great meal and fellowship.
Our District Warden, Tom Nigro, congratulated the council on obtaining the Council of the Year Award (B division) and four other Faith in Action awards for the current Fraternal Year. Our Grand Knight Russ Eagleston thanked our priests for their dedication to the priesthood and for all they do for the parishioners of St Joseph’s Church in Bridgton and St Elisabeth’s Church in Fryeburg.
Our Pastor in turn thanked the members of the council acknowledging us for our support and for all of the services that the council provides to both the church and the community.
Our council has always been united and are fraternal brothers performing acts of charity in support of our church, families and community both as a group and as individuals. But spending social time together with our spouses and our priests demonstrates yet another example of the principle of fraternity.
