Chancellor’s MessageChancellor’s Message

May brings the “Month of Mary” and we take the opportunity to gather to pray to our Mother on Thursday May 20th at the Council. Please bring your families and friends as we pray a Living Rosary, and we present a crown honoring Mary Queen of the Church. We also look to honor our fallen military with a Memorial Day Rosary and flag retirement service on May 30th to show respect to those that served and our countries symbol of bravery and freedom. All are welcome to join in.On June 17th as the warm weather settles in, we honor the works of our members who have served our council and brought us closer together in Charity, Unity and Fraternity. As I close this my last message as Chancellor and bringing a closing to this Columbian year becomes bittersweet. I would first like to thank our Grand Knight Al Lahood for his hard work and determination to get through this difficult pandemic year. With the loss of 12 members this past year, three of which were PGK’s our council took a great loss. We can best remember them by carrying on the works that they started here in the Delaney Council. We can look forward to a fresh start hopefully past this epidemic. With hope for the future, we pray Jesus grants us the wisdom and fortitude to continue in his great works. Vivat Jesus through us
SK. Matthew Antonucci, Chancellor 2020-2021

Membership Director's Report
As we wind down the Fraternal Year and look forward to the better days ahead, recruitment of new members to our council remains a priority we can never overlook.
I am thankful for the recruiting efforts of our members, which will strengthen our council for the years ahead, and keep Delaney Council as an active and charitable council as we should always be. As we speak there are three new members ready to make their Exemplification, as well as a reactivation/transfer member coming on board keeping our recruitment efforts moving forward. We, as Knights, owe every eligible Catholic gentleman the offer to strengthen his Faith, protect his family, and embrace the character of charity in their hearts and minds, JUST ASK!Delaney Council welcomes our newest member, Vincent Matheis, who made his Exemplification on April 22nd at Bellmore Council, congratulations.

Membership Director's Report

I hope to find our Delaney members and families well as we continue to battle through the health crisis with brighter days surely ahead. As our council has continued to persevere with the good works of our Order, it has been a big help that many of our new/newer members have been making a difference with getting involved in the programs/business of the council, it is great to have more brothers involved and it is notably appreciated. Let us all continue to tell our family and friends about the great things we do at Delaney Council and not forget how we were brought into the order, we were asked, please ask someone to join us. A Blessed Lent and Happy Saint Patrick's Day to my Delaney Family.
