From the Grand Knight
I would like to first of all, take this opportunity again Father Stanley to welcome you to Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish (PBVM). I have no doubt that you are going to bring the parish great Administrative and Spiritual Leadership. I, the Knights of Columbus, and the Squires Circle look forward to being able to work with you, to work for you, as we work towards meeting the same goals, challenges and objectives for and with the parishioners of our fine parish here at PBVM. Father Michael J McGivney’s had four Principles for the Knights of Columbus, Charity, Unity, Fraternalism and Patriotism … so with you, the parishioners, the children of PBVM school, the staff of the church and the school, the many ministries of the church, the Knights of Columbus and the Squires, may we all continue to strive to build our faith based around these and have collaborative partnerships focusing around these four pillars of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
I would also like to say Thank you to Father Stanley for excepting the offer of becoming our Chaplain of the PBVM Council 15693 and the Squires Circle. We look forward to having you as our Chaplain. We look forward to your spiritual leadership, your advisement, your faith and to work with you as we continue to strengthen the faith of all here at PBVM.
Deacon Lawrence, I also say Thank you to you for excepting the offer to assist Father Stanley with becoming our Spiritual Advisor, to help lead our great Council and Squires with our faith and spiritual needs. Between both of you, I am sure that the Spiritual Leadership will far exceed our expectations.
I will remind both of you that the Council meetings are the second Tuesday of each month, starting at 7 pm. The Squires Circle meeting have been meeting once a month in the middle of the month, but SK Miguel Acosta has informed me that this might be changing, so there will be more information to follow on this once a change has been made. The Squires are planning their next investiture for August 14, to bring in new members.
In Mary’s name we pray
SK Richard Westerfeld
PBVM Council 15693
