October Recap
October was another productive month for the Council. Our works of charity continued during this month of the Rosary and Respect for Life.

We started off with nightly rosaries. We handed out donations to St. Michael School, the Columbian Retirement Home, Livermore Homeless Refuge and St. Michael Youth Ministry. 2 of our brothers attained Knighthood in the Spanish 2nd and 3rd Degree ceremonies that we hosted. Fr. Carl hosted a BBQ for us. Our first pancake breakfast of the year raised over $1300 for the Cheryl Ruth Coats for Kids Drive. We capped the month off by collecting over $5000 work of gifts during the Baby Gift drive and the gifts are still coming in.

In addition, we welcomed 3 new brothers and completed the donation of a life-saving ultrasound machine.

Sadly, we said goodbye to our dear friend and brother, Fr. Poon, but the presence and outpouring of support from the Knights was amazing and much appreciated by Fr. Poon's family.

THANK YOU to all Knights and families who participated and helped with our events in October.

THANK YOU to all St. Michael and St. Charles parishioners for their continued support and generosity.
