 Tom Sommerville-GK message-May-June 2022 I hope that you and your families are doing well and staying healthy. It is hard for me to believe that this is my final article as grand Knight for the Knight Light. The past year has gone by in the blink of an eye. There are so many people i would like to thank for making this such a wonderful year. I have to start by thanking my wife, Gloria for both her patience and encouragement this past year... Thanks also to my Deputy, Matt Antonucci, my greatest asset. If it wasn't for Matt, you might never have seen an email message from your Grand Knight. My Chancellor, Gary Rodetis has kept our calendar full and has provided great committees, as well as Chairman for all of our events. I could not have done without my Warden and Guards for upholding the door. Thanks to Mike and Matteo for the minutes nd for sending them out to all our Brother Knights. Thank you Mary Ann Cabri and the Columbiettes for always showing support for our council. The year could not be successful and complete without YOU, the members. Thank you for all of your friendship and support. Looking ahead, we have the Nomination of Officers for the coming for the new Columbian year (elections 6-2-22). Thank you PGK Keith Wilson for chairing the nominating committee... A Knight At The Races on May 13th is expected to be a sell out. Thank you PGK Tom Moran for chairing this event each year. Tables go fast so see Tom for tickets....May 27th is kareoke night. I am looking forward to all of our in-house entertainment... See Bill Iannone or Deacon John Horn for tickets...The May 19th meeting will start at 7:30pm.

Come on down with your family and pray the Rosary with our Delaney Council family...May 28th will be the placing of flags at Pinelawn cemetary, in honor of our veterans. This will be followed by our flag retirement ceremony back at the Council. PGK Al Lahood will retire all old flags.

Chancellors Corner

Chancellor’s Corner Greetings Brothers, May this message find you and your families healthy and spiritually blessed following the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Sacrifice (N) - an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy. Christian Church definition – Christ’s offering of himself in the crucifixion. Take a moment to study the definition of the word. Think of what is most valued in your life and answer truthfully whether you give up these things for something worthier. We all would probably answer this question differently. Try to remember what it means to make a sacrifice in your everyday life for the good of all we encounter. May God bless you and your families and God bless America. Chancellor Gary Rodetis
