See the past recipients here.
|Thanks to the many hands that helped in big ways and small ways to make the Parish Picnic prep, set-up, running and clean-up, a very efficient effort indeed! Special kudos to Brother Abner Garcia for his great organizational efforts and all the pre-planning he accomplished. Many hands made this year's Parish Picnic Light Work, and we thank you all for support of a record breaking picnic crowd!|
|As has been discussed, we will be moving the "Knight's Out Night" around to try to give families and Knights with specific night of the week conflicts a chance to attend from time to time. We'll even be trying a couple of Friday evenings and maybe Saturday afternoons as well. All are welcome.|
|Kudos to Brother Knights Mike Brandwein and Jordan Clemens for the successful holding of the Soccer Challenge on Sunday 08 Sept. Five athletes participated across four age groups. Despite small numbers, a fun time was had by all! Given Hurricane Dorian eclipsed our ability to advertise at SJA School, the event none-the-less went on as advertised with growth over last year!|
|First, thanks to Brother Knights Brandon Spence, Marty Lopshansky, GK Tom Lundquist & PGK Andy Bair for joyfully helping a disabled brother Knight for a couple of hours with some necessary tree trimming, gutter cleaning, yard clean up and covering a pool at his home in Chesapeake! Brother Knight George Grabitsch was very thankful and has a load off his mind as he enters some medical procedures likely in early September.|
|Also, thanks to Brother Knights Daniel Peterson, Anthony Cruscuolo, Shawn Hutchings, Tim Ferramosca and Tom Lundquist (along with Anya & Micah Lundquist) who joyfully served over 40 families today in concert with Beach Church and their Beach Bucket Charity handing out free schools supplies, clothing and food to help these working poor families of Virginia Beach. The need is greater in our own City than many realize. Thanks to SK Daniel Peterson for identifying this very worthy cause which struggles for helping hands|

First let me say that I humbled by the confidence you have placed in my leadership as I get ready to serve as Grand Knight. I stand ready to serve our Council and the Knights of Columbus as we continue our charitable works in support of Saint John the Apostle Catholic Church & School, our surrounding Community and the Catholic Church here in Virginia, across the US and beyond. I stand committed to ensure that our Council will foster a renewed commitment to the deepening of our Catholic Faith, personally, and within our Families. And I look forward to our inspiring those around us at SJA as we serve and promote activities that bring our parish family together for fun and fellowship. As we begin our new Fraternal Year 2019-2020, I remind us all that we are called to serve with humbleness of heart, with charity, and with JOY. I challenge us to remember the words of Saint Mother Teresa - "JOY is a net of love in which you can catch souls." Joy brothers, is something we must remember to show in our daily walks. I am guilty of not always showing it, but I ask you to keep me accountable to it as I will each of you. Our walks with Christ, if nothing else, should radiate joy!
In the year ahead, let us each look to something we can do and do it well in service to our Council and our parish. As Saint Mother Teresa also said: "Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love." We stand as Knights of Columbus to serve our church, our families, each other, and our communities. One small thing each of us can do is to reach out to another Catholic brother and invite him to join our Council. Let us "Be Not Afraid" to serve, to love, to teach and to reach out to our brothers at SJA and ask the simple question, "Are you a brother in the Knights of Columbus?" If not, then the second question should be, when I can follow-up with you to tell you more about the great brotherhood we have and the charitable works we do, not to mention the great benefits the Knights of Columbus offers to us and our families.
I look forward to a highly successful and blessed year! I look forward to serving alongside of you with joy in our hearts, love, charity and kindness. And I look forward to our families and our church being further strengthened in faith as a result of the Brother Knights of Council 13467! May God grant us peace and prosperity in the year ahead. May He also grant us the grace to face the challenges we will undoubtable face and the fortitude to persevere in His Holy Name!Vivat Jesus!
