Posted by: GK Tom LundquistThanks to all who helped set-up, shop and tear down the SJA Christmas Bazaar held this past Saturday. The event was very successful and I had a number of people from the School state how great it is that Knights appear even more visible this year for school support than ever before! For those considering end of the year charitable donations, I share a link that can allow you and yours to personally support the SJA School with very specific gifts of charity. https://richmond.igivecatholic.org/organizations/saint-john-the-apostle-catholic-school Thanks to all Knights for your support our parish and our school with your generosity of time and treasure!

Worthy Brothers All,
We have our November Council Business Meeting in the SJA School Cafeteria, Tuesday evening, November 12 beginning with the rosary at 7pm and the meeting starting promptly at 7:30pm. The Business Meeting Agenda is attached for your convenience, as is a copy of the Worthy Recorder's Notes from the October Business Meeting. As we now read abbreviated minutes at the Business Meetings, please read through the Recorder's notes and let us know if there are any necessary or suggested edits.
Are you feeling that chill in the air! And like that, we are well into November with the Veteran's Appreciation Dinner and Fundraiser already behind us! Many who attended our eleventh annual event Saturday night said it was the very best yet! Thanks to all who helped to make it so! Come to the meeting Tuesday night to hear how successful our fundraising efforts were!
As tomorrow is Veteran's Day, a most heartfelt thank you and appreciation to all who have served and to your families! Lest we never forget the price of freedom and may you always feel the gratitude of all in our great country!
With the Thanksgiving Holiday and then Advent & Christmas almost upon us, we have a lot going on for everyone to enjoy, serve and to build great fellowship within our Council, across the Parish Community, and within the neighborhoods we live and work within. Planning is already underway for our KofC Christmas Party (Dec 14), the Parish Family Christmas, Nativity and Visit with Santa Party (Sunday Dec 8 in concert with the SJA PTO) & the CRHP Christmas Party (Dec 7). We will of course once again pass the hat at one of our upcoming KofC Business Meetings to support families in dire need this Christmas as we do each year!
Of course we have our Parish Breakfasts November 17 & December 15!
And last, but certainly should be first.. Hopefully we will each make time to find peace, tranquility and time with our families during the soon to be here, Advent Season! May the Anticipation of Christ's coming into this world as an infant renew our sense of wonder and child-like excitement in the Power of Christ's saving grace and prompt us each to approach Him with open hearts, renewed humility and the willingness to accept the many gifts he wishes to bestow upon us if and when we follow Him. more closely!
Please choose an event or two and help to lead, support and/or attend! It is by giving, that we receive! See the calendar of events in the Agenda and look for emails as the month progresses. There are many opportunities to lend a hand, even if it is just for an hour!
If you know of any Brother Knight or widows needing assistance, please bring that information to our meeting Tuesday night or send me an email and we will see what we can do to assist. ship provided by Worthy Lecturer Anthony Criscuolo!
Hope to see many of you Tuesday night! Let's once again fill the Council Chamber!
