Grand Knight Message - November 2010

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 7:39 AM | Rafael Betancourt (Administrator)
Dear Brother Knights,

October was a good month, full of activity. We had a Membership Drive on Oct 10th organized by Br. Martin Orlando where we met about 10 prospects. Right after that, we held the Tootsie Roll Drive, Oct 15-17 for people with intellectual disabilities and we will donate all proceeds to Parents Helping Parents in San Jose. Finally, Br. Wayne Cope led a morning of Coffee & Donuts on Sunday 11/7, were we collected almost $150 despite the rain.

During the last business meeting we had elections to fill positions recently vacated. Br. Gilbert Rodriguez was elected as Outside Guard to replace late Br. Ike Latoza and Br. Robert Carvalho was elected Trustee to replace Br. Vince Gonzalez, who had to step down due to his appointment by Supreme as our new Financial Secretary.

In November 17th, Br. Matt Noisat organized a fundraiser dinner at Chevy’s to benefit the RSVP program that will fund a scholarship for a seminarian. Br. Israel Gonzalez is again leading an effort to sell Keep Christ in Christmas Cards to also benefit the RSVP program. The Council will sell the cards during St. Justin’s Bazaar on Dec. 5-6th. To end the year, we will have our Christmas Social Celebration on Sunday, December 12 (Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe) @ 4pm at St. Justin’s Parish Ministry Center.

All this work had been the result of great effort and sacrifice of a small dedicated group of 10-15 Brother Knights. In order to sustain our call to service, we need the participation of the rest of you – there are over 130 in our roster, if all of you just dedicated a few hours a month we could easily do twice as much to the benefit of our Church, our Families, and our Community. Please join us in Service to One, in Service to All.

Vivat Jesus!
