Grand Knight's Message
I hope all my Brothers had a wonderful Easter! I'm looking forward to a big turnout at our May 1st meeting.
Grand Knight Cliff Buede
Father, may all we do today be inspired by you - and continue with your saving help
Let our work always begin with your blessing - and through you, reach completion.
Lord of the morning, noon and evening, we pray...Cast all darkness from our hearts.
Send us the light of your truth, so that we may be guided by you today - and walk in your love.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord
Do we truly believe that God has a plan for each of us? I do.
I believe that when we were baptized, God assigned us a project - a plan - and when we have completed that plan, he calls us home. I believe that so much, that I often ask God, "Speak a little louder. I'm not sure what I am supposed to be doing."
Either, I'm not listening well - or - he has a bigger plan than I have acknowledged.
True, we need to pray but - we have to listen to what God has to say to us. St. Augustine said, 'When we pray, we speak to God. But, when we read the Sacred Scriptures, we listen to what God has to say."

District Deputy's Message
This new Fraternal Year is giving us the chance to renew our commitment to seeing another successful year in the council... but it can only be done by YOUR involvement with the Programs and Activities that the council sponsors...
Get involved!!! Come to the meetings and see what is going on...
And if you are a 1st Degree Knight... you will have the opportunity to advance to the 3rd Degree on Sunday, August 5... Make plans now... and if you are a 3rd Degree Knight already, why not make plans to see the new 3rd Degree Ceremonial.
District Deputy Dennis Trainor
