GK's Message
Brother Knights,

Happy Easter! May this Easter season be a reminder for all of us of God's love and glory. This was undoubtedly a unique Lent and Easter for all of us but the message remains the same - God has a good plan for each of us if we trust Him and put our lives in His hands.

As we are hopefully towards the end of the shelter in place order, I look forward to resuming our council activities. We will start with the May business meeting. We will have one either in person or via video conference if the SIP order is extended. We will be discussing the status of our remaining events for the year and start the transition process with WDGK Walter presenting the slate of officers, the calendar and budget for the next Columbian year.

I look forward to seeing all of you soon. In the mean time, stay safe and let us keep praying for an end to the pandemic.

Vivat Jesus!

Anthony R. Contarciego

RCCBB 2020 Update
Status: On Hold
From Brother Barry Bucket:

RCCBB – “on hold”. We have until May 26 (1 month before delivery of rental equipment) to make a final decision – without financial penalty. Much of what is needed to run the event is set up or been requested. Currently, there is no “postponement date” being considered – but may change. If a “GO” will take a considerable final push effort to put things in place for a successful event.

Oratio Imperata
Prayer for Protection Against COVID-19
God our Father,
We come to you in our need
To ask your protection against the COVID-19 Virus,
That has claimed lives and has affected many.

We pray for your grace
For the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
Of this virus and its disease
And of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
That they may minister to the sick
With competence and compassion,
And of those governments and private agencies
That must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

We pray for those afflicted
May they be restored to health soon.

Grant us the grace
To work for the good of all
And to help those in need.

Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen. 
In our prayers

... For the repose of the souls of Joanne Crossman and Edward Roberts
... For a quick end to the pandemic
... For the safety and health of our families
... For the safety of all medical professionals and in gratitude to their service to COVID-19 patients
... For the healing of all those afflicted by COVID-19
...and for the repose of the souls of all who have died from the COVID-19 virus.

Please pray for the repose of the souls of:
