Grand Knight Message - October 2010

Saturday, October 02, 2010 11:15 PM | Rafael Betancourt (Administrator)
Dear Brother Knights,

It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of our Worthy Outside Guard, Br. Enrique “Ike” Latoza on September 16th. Council members joined Br. Ike’s family to bid him farewell at St. Justin during a funeral Mass on September 25th presided by our Chaplain Fr. Ritche Bueza. The 4th degree Color Guard was in attendance. I would like to honor the memory of Br. Ike during this month of October by focusing our energies on being of service to our Church and community:

1. Membership Drive Oct 10th – we need to man a table on Sunday to make the opportunity of membership in our Brotherhood available to all qualified Catholic men. It is our duty to do so. Our Membership Director, DGK Martin Orlando needs help to make this a successful drive – please sign up.

2. Tootsie Roll Drive, Oct 15-17 - people with intellectual disabilities are counting on our sacrifice, hard work, and dedication. We need to get out there and take care of them! Contact Br. Davison Vivit to secure your time slot at a local supermarket.

3. Coffee & Donuts on Sunday 11/7 - We have a commitment with Fr. Ritche to do this the first Sunday of every month.  All net profits benefit a fund so that we can make donations to members of the Parish in need. During the first two Sundays, we have collected over $250 so far. We need people to show up 7:30am-12:00noon to setup, serve, clean up. We also want to set up a table to recruit. Br. Wayne Cope is leading this effort. Who is signing up?

So that we may live up to the legacy & mission of our Order, let’s join in service to those in greatest need, so that we may proclaim the Gospel of Life by our example as we build together a Civilization of Love.

SK Rafael Betancourt, GK
