Brothers,
A great meeting was held yesterday. We had some very good sharing involving the chalice in honor of Ed Dever and how we are planning to use it for a mass dedicated to healing the harm done by recent Church scandals. Many thanks to Father Bede for being such a great chaplain. Also, Patrick Roehm is our new Deputy Grand Knight so be sure to congratulate him when you see him.

Here’s where we are with upcoming events

Grand Knight Jack recently got the job he was gunning for. To celebrate we’re meeting up at 6pm this Saturday (the 15th) in the basement of St Peter’s (5pm vigil Mass is available to anyone who wants to go). We’re then going to go out for Mexican food. If you are interested in coming please RSVP to FS Patrick so we can make sure we don’t forget anyone.
