COUNCIL 10136 MEETING MINUTES 4-11-2022

 

Meeting called to order at 7:32 pm by the Grand Knight.

Membership cards checked by warden.

Opening prayer was offered by the Grand Knight.

After the Pledge of Allegiance, roll was taken.  All present except the Deputy Grand Knight, Advocate, the Inside Guard and the 3rd Year Trustee.  The Lecturer post is vacant. Previous meeting minutes were approved.

The Chaplain remarked that this was  his first Holy Week as a priest.  He reflected on the role of Simon of Cyrene, who assisted Jesus in carrying his cross.  He asked us to attend the Stations of the Cross and ask for the grace to have Simon be our model of service.

The  Chancellor alerted us that it is never too early to sign up for the White House retreat.. Contact either Mike Amad, Chris Nelms or Bruce Bange if interested in attending.

The Recorder reported that we received a very nice thank you note from Rose Palmer for our gifts to her.

The slate of officers for the 2022/23 fraternal year was announced by the Grand Knight.  The slate was approved unanimously by the members.  No other candidates for office were nominated from the floor.
Anyone interested in any position may contact Luke Walsh.

The Life Director announced that the Midwest March for Life is in Jefferson City next Wednesday.  Also on April 28th is a banquet to benefit the South County Pregnancy Help Center at Orlando Gardens.

The Financial Secretary reported that there are 14 members who have not paid dues.  His collection team, consisting of the Trustees, will soon be contacting those who are recalcitrant.

Trustees offered no report. 

Dave Beckerle gave an extensive report on the three week results of the Fish Fry.  Overall, sales are up over last year, however last week was a slow week due to many families being out of town for the spring break.  Anticipated profit is just over $14,000.

The district deputy reminded everyone about the 4th degree exemplification taking place on May 21st. 

There is a blood drive on May 22nd.  That same date we host Donut Sunday.

The Parish 50th Anniversary Mass and banquet will be held on July 30th.

The District Deputy reiterated the need to make sure that all current members make their 4th Degree and the need to increase our overall membership roles.

The Knight of the Month was Howard Schroeder.

The Grand Knight reported on those sick or recently deceased.

The Chaplain read the closing prayer and lead us in grace.

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Pro-Life Mass and Prayer Vigil

Third Saturday of the Month The Archdiocesan Pro-Life Committee sponsors a Mass and Prayer Vigil on the third Saturday of every month that the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis (Lindell & Newstead, in the Central West End). Entitled ‘Helpers of God’s Precious Infants’, the Mass begins at 8:00am and is followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Immediately thereafter the rosary procession/witness begins and proceeds from the Cathedral to the Planned Parenthood Abortion facility. My Brother Knights all; This is a very effective way to serve God, His Church, and the K of C in support of the Sanctity of Human Life at ALL STAGES. This public, prayerful witness is an affirmation to Life and a visible sign against the pervading culture of death in our societyJoin US!!!

Finally, a note regarding the activities calendar sheet.  The “Helper’s” Mass at the Cathedral on the third Saturday is back to in-person with a Rosary procession to Planned Parenthood after Mass, and Benediction upon return to the Cathedral.  This is always subject to revision due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control (i.e., weather, Cathedral unavailable for Benediction, etc.)  Also…please note that the January Mass is typically scheduled for 10:00am with the Archbishop presiding.  It is also possible that the January Mass may not be scheduled on the third Saturday, depending upon where the March for Life falls (on the Friday closest to the 22nd), which may not be a factor in the future if later this year the SCOTUS hands down the decision we’ve all been praying for!!
 

Third Saturday of the month- 8:00am – Cathedral Basilica on Lindell Blvd:

The Celebrant at the Helper’s of God’s Precious Infants Mass & will lead rosary procession to Planned Parenthood after Mass that commemorates the tragic anniversary of the Roe v. Wade/Doe v. Bolton SCOTUS decisions in 1973.  For more information:  CLICK HERE
