To My Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes and the entire Delaney Council Family, As I look back on the first half of my year as Grand Knight, I am extremely grateful for all of my Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes; and family and friends who have continuously dedicated your time and talents for the good of the order. Your participation is what makes our council successful in our charitable, fraternal and community endeavors. I am especially thankful to my Officers and to my family for all of the help at our meetings, parties and events this past six months. To both our new and older members, I encourage all of you to get involved. You will find it exceedingly rewarding. God bless you all in the New Year and God Bless Delaney Council Knights of Columbus.
Always yours in Christ, Matt Antonucci, Grand Knight
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and A Happy Safe New Years. We embark on a new year and I am sure many of us have made and begun to break all those New Year’s Resolutions. HA HA HA. I suggest some resolutions we all should make and keep: remember to be thoughtful, treat everyone, as you would like to be treated or better yet better than we treat ourselves; try to participate in the Council a little more this year. Maybe chair a Friday night fraternal night, it is one of the easiest of activities to chair. Remember Jesus taught us to Love one another, pray for those who make mistakes and need the help of God and to forgive more often. I would like to wish you and your families a Blessed, Happy, Safe and Healthy 2023. May 2023 exceed our expectations and if we encounter some difficulties, remember to look to God for assistance and guidance. Pray daily and often, May the Love and Kindness of Jesus be with us all. Michael G. Antonucci Chancellor
