Special Knights Farewell Social for Fr. Phil. 15791

Special Knights Farewell Social for Fr. Phil. 15791


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Brothers of Council 15791, Family Members, Clergy, and Maine State Officers, Treasurer Michael Giroux and Advocate Norman Bisson participated in a “Special Farewell Social with Meal” for Pastor Fr. Phil Tracy on Tuesday January 4, 2022, at Holy Martyr’s Church Hall. During our December Business Meeting plans were started for our social gathering in January. During mid-December it was announced at all weekend masses that Fr. Phil would be leaving us in January for a new assignment. It was suggested by our council officers to have a Special Social and Meal for Fr. Phil in place of our January Business Meeting. Our council Deputy Grand Knight stepped up and took charge of organizing this event. There were many things to organize to include, order a special gift for Father, to setting up the menu for the social, to planning with the Parish Office to utilize the Parish Hall and kitchen, at Holy Martyr’s on January 4, 2022. Our Grand Knight was in charge of getting the television set-up and the ZOOM connection out to all members for the ZOOM access, for those brothers who were not going to attend the live gathering. There were two presentations made to Fr. Phil during the Social. The first was a nice pull over sweatshirt which was monogramed with the Knights emblem on it, and Fr. Phil’s name under the knight’s emblem. The second gift was a Third-Degree Chalice with name plate. The Chalice was housed in a glass case with Fr. Phil’s name on the name plate.
As normal each month our Council Family Director presents the Knight and Family certificates. This month the Knight of the Month certificate was presented to Brother Gerard Doucette. Our Family presentation was given to Warden Brother Ulrich MC Amoussou Guenon and his family. Fr. Phil Tracy was very pleased to have been honored for his 2.5 years of service as Pastor of the Parish of the Holy Eucharist. We look forward as a Parish and a Council to collaborate with our new incoming Pastor, Fr. Steven Cartwright. He will be taking over the leadership on January 11, 2022.
