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.
Brother and Sisters in
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 Month of April
As we pray together and reflect on this Sundays Gospel message.

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.

A word from our Grand Knight Dennis Winkler
Spring is around the corner. Flowers will be blooming, warmer weather approaching and Jesus Rising! How can it get much better than that?
They tell me, at the council, that after the holidays, my Grand Knight Year is almost done. Well, it wouldn’t be going so smooth without some special people. I would like to thank the following people who have helped me so far through this year: All the active Past Grand Knights, Tom Sommerville Sr., Tom Sommerville Jr., Tim Sommerville, Mike Houlihan, Andy Panetta, Frank Guglielmo. Matt Antonucci, Mark Antonucci, Mike Antonucci, Gary Rodetis, Al Porto, Paul Nadolny, Deacon Chris Daniello, Vinnie LoBiando, and DGK Al LaHood. I am sure there are many other brothers, I am sorry if I have not mentioned you by name, but, Thank You!!!
It is amazing how other councils and their members have reached out to me and offered assistance of any kind, Maria Regina, Holy Innocence and my former council Hartigan Council.
Because I’m not done yet, here are a couple of things going on at the council the next couple of months.
St. James will be having their St. Patrick’s / St. Joseph’s Party Saturday March 14th in Delaney Hall, St. James Parrish.
The second meeting on March 19th we will be having a brief meeting, starting at 7:15 pm, followed by a Mindful Meditation Presentation presented by Mary Scuderi.
There will be refreshments to follow. Please make every attempt to attend this evening of learning how to enhance your prayerfulness using mindfulness and meditation.
The 300 Club Party is March 28th at Delaney Hall (St. James). Please RSVP Before!!!
The Columbiettes will be having their “BIG” Fundraiser of the year, Gift Card Bingo April 17th 7:00pm. Please sup-port them the way they support us!
I would like to wish you a very Happy Easter and remem-ber that whatever we are going through, it does not com-pare to what Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior went through for us.
God First and God Bless,
GK Msgr. William A. Delaney Council
