Fr. Aaron (our former Chaplin) is at St. Catherines in Smithtown (third floor). Fr. Aaron has a deep devotion to the Holy Spirit and to the intercession of saints for those suffering from an illness. Together, let us keep Fr. Aaron in our prayers.
A word from our Grand Knight Dennis Winkler
With the holidays fast approaching, let us reflect on all that we are thankful for. I am thankful for all the support I have received from my fellow brother Knights and sister Columbiettes. You all have shown me the true meaning of friendship. I am also thankful for the love and support I receive from Jeanette and Justin. Thanks for always having my back. Thanksgiving is right on our heals and that means that we are going into our busy time of year; fun, but, busy.
We are starting our Monday/Thursday Night Foot-ball at the council again. The dates are 11/4/19, 11/14/19, 12/12/19 (subject to cancellation – due to hall bookings). $10.00 a person. See the flyer for info.
Please remember we have our Memorial Mass for all deceased members of the Knights and Columbiettes on November 21st. Our Children’s Christmas Party is on Tuesday December 3rd followed by the Adult Christmas Party on Friday December 13th.
Also, don’t forget that the Good News Hours is still ongoing the 2nd Thursday of every month, facilitated by Deacon Chris.
I would like to Wish Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my family to yours. I am looking forward to some really fun and exciting things in the year to come.
God First and God Bless, Dennis Winkler
