New Knight
In what could possibly be his last activity as a member of our council, PKG Tom McCaffrey led a special video First Degree Ceremony for our newest Knight, Fr. Rex Marfil , during our Knight Out dinner with Fr. Carl. We had a quorum of members who voted Fr. Rex in and joined him in the ceremony.

Welcom Fr. Rex!

Weekend Recap
Meeting Minutes
The minutes of our December business meeting has been posted on our website.
Christmas Party

The Christmas Party was a success in spite of the weather! Great turn out with lots delicious food, Christmas and fraternal spirit. Thanks to everyone who helped decorate, serve food, bar tend and clean up, etc. and made it such a fun evening! As always, the visit from Santa was a hit.

Pictures will be posted on our website soon. Check it out.

Pancake Breakfast
Thank you for answering the call! Your generosity and that of our fellow parishioners will go a long way in supporting our Christmas Baskets program.

Our partnership with the Welcoming Ministry was also a hit. They also raised funds that would help with their projects. Members of the ministry enjoyed working with our brothers.

Thanks to everyone who worked at this event!
Knight Out with Fr. Carl #2
Thank you, Fr. Carl, for hosting us once again! Dinner was delicious!

For those who have not joined this event yet, be on the lookout for Knight Out #3 some time before lent. If you think all we do is work, work and work some more, our Worthy Chaplain is proving you wrong! He has kindly hosted us with catered dinner. All we have to do is RSVP, show up and have a great Knight out!
Upcoming Events
Christmas Baskets & Coat for Kids Distribution

Our "elves" are hard at work shopping and wrapping gifts that we will be distributing this weekend.

Come join us this Saturday, December 14, at 7:30am in the St. Michael Large Hall, to finish preparing the gifts and deliver them to families.

NYE Party at the VA Hospital
As in year's past, we will partner with other councils to throw an early NYE party for the veteran's at the VA Hospital. There will be food and music for an early celebration that easily gets you home to ring in the New Year with your own family.

Sign ups will be available next week.
