The general meeting for this month was our election of officers for the 2015-2016 year. We had an excellent turnout of 18 members for the meeting. Confirmed positions are:

  • Grand Knight: Alan Bendia
  • Deputy Grand Knight: Oscar Sirju
  • Chancellor: To be confirmed
  • Recorder: Mike Serres
  • Treasurer: Paul Enticott
  • Advocate: To be confirmed
  • Warden: Bill Sawarna
  • Inside Guard: Larry Loth
  • Outside Guard: To be confirmed
  • Trustees: To be confirmed

We would like to thank all the members of the executive that are retiring and thank all those that stood for election. Our installation ceremony and dinner will be organized during the June meeting and will probably occur in August to accommodate some members travel plans.

Our fund raising through the Charity Raffle is going well. We have only 9 or 10 books left to sell. We are going to be in the Stanley Park Mall during the week of June 8-15th. If anybody can help out please contact Bill Sawarna to see which slots are available.

We raised $214 through sale of roses on Mother’s Day. The proceeds will be split between Birthright and KW Right to Life.

The Knights will be assisting in the Corpus Christi procession on June 7th by carrying the canopy during the ceremony. This is an excellent opportunity to honor the Body of our Lord on this special feast day. The ceremony will be held immediately following 11:30 mass and all parishioners are encouraged to participate. The procession will occur on the church grounds so that everybody can approach the Eucharist. We require 4 men to hold the canopy during the procession. Volunteers should contact Gregory Merkley through the parish office.

Please remember Dave Flitton in your prayers. He recently suffered a heart attack and will be undergoing surgery soon. During his convalescence members of the parish are organizing meals for his family. Please contact the McCullough family or John Divine for details on how you can help. The contact details are posted on the Knight’s website.

We are organizing a social to wrap up the 2014-2015 season. At this time it looks like it will occur in June. A phone committee will contact members once final details are complete.
