We hope that you are your family are safe and well during the unprecedented time in our world.  While this most difficult time has essentially stopped life as we know it, I want you to be assured that Msgr. William A. Delaney Council 5983  is continuing our charitable works. Please stay in contact with all our members especially the elderly. Reach out and give them a call and see if they need anything.

From the desk of Grand Knight Dennis Winkler

Who would have thought that my Grand Knight year would end this way. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was disappointed it had to end this way. First and foremost, I hope this article finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
Although the Columbian Year is coming to an end, that doesn’t mean that the good works of our order also come to an end. Here is a little update on the council’s activities: With Supreme’s guidance, all council gatherings have been put on hold until further notice. With that said, we have had to cancel the 300 club party and will host this party in September.
We have our annual flag laying ceremony on May 23rd, followed by our flag retirement back at the council and breakfast sponsored by O’Shea Funeral Home.
We have had to move the date for the Night at the Races. On June 26th we have our biggest fundraiser of the year, our Night at the Races hosted by PGK Tom Moran. This is always a fun time. Please make your reservations soon, as this night will be a sellout.
We have been able to have Executive Board Meetings via Zoom and will try to have a regular council meeting also via Zoom. (More info to come)
At this point I would like to take the time and thank Jeanette for not only being my rock and support, but for also being my secretary, always keeping my dates correct and making sure I don’t miss anything. I would like to thank Justin for sacrificing for me and under- standing this year as I missed some things that he had this year.
Through the Columbian Year, I have thanked everyone who has helped me try to be a successful Grand Knight.
I would remiss if I did not thank Bob Coyne for his years of dedicated service editing and putting together the Knight Light. Thank You Bob!! You are the greatest. I have tough shoes to fill.
Good Luck to the incoming Grand Knight and his slate of officers and thank you for all your support and encouragement through my year.
God First and God Bless,
Dennis Winkler

2020-2021 BUDGET

Brothers,

The 2020-21 Columbian Year budget was extremely difficult to produce because of the significant reduction in rental revenues due to COVID-19. As a result the Budget Committee consisting of the Corporation President, Financial Secretary, Treasurer, Council Accountant, the three Trustees and the DGK have had to make difficult decisions and significant cuts.

This budget is based on an estimated 30% reduction in rental and bar service revenue. The following cuts are proposed:

The discretionary Charity budget is $0. However, there is budgeted funds for the RSVP- $1000, Blue Mass- $100, Memorial Mass- $150, Life Center- $300 and Birthright- $200.

No funds are budgeted for the Installation of Officers repast (it will be a pot luck).

There is no subsidy for the PGK Testimonial.

The Knight of Recognition will be held during a regular Social meeting.

The three Youth scholarships are reduced by 50% for 2021 only.

The Knight Light will be published online and email for 2021 only.

There are no calling posts except for wake service announcements for 2021 only (all other a nouncements are email).

Cancel Cablevision and purchase ROKU and HULU Sports package (YES and NFL are still available).

Income         Expenses     Net

$161,926        (-$171,285)    (-$9,359)

With the proposed cuts the budget deficit has been reduced from (-$20,500) to (-$9,359). The Budget Committee unanimously recommend approval. The Budget Committee further recommends that the budget be reviewed in early October and amended if necessary.

Brother and Sisters in
CHRIST

One of the greatest tools the evil one has is disunity. The more he can separate us from one another and from our church, the easier it is for him to keep us away from our LORD.

Now more than ever in these trying times we need to keep PRAYING.

We a people of FAITH now have a choice to make, do we give in to fear and panic or do we TRUST in out LORD that we will get through this.

We cannot be physically together, but thanks to the Delaney KNIGHTS of Columbus setting up this zoom account  we can still pray together.

I am inviting all of you, your family and any of your friends, from your own home to join me this and EVERY Thursday night at 7:30pm  for the Months of April & May
As we pray together and reflect on this Sundays Gospel message.

The choice is yours
Just like this image up top of the three men on the crosses

  • One was willing to take on all the sham and pain of the cross, and turn it in to a symbol of salvation. To save us from our sinful nature
  • One seen Jesus and could and would not accept him
  • The other seen that this was the savior of the world

We need to now be like that repentant thief, to trust in our LORD at this time.
