Grand Knights Message

Posted by: GK Shawn Hutchings
  • As expected, all council meetings and gatherings have been cancelled or suspended until further nontice. Pray that this pandemic is resolved soon.
  • The new exemplification, as authorized by Supreme, was a great success. On February 29th we had 4 new Brothers and 15 advancing from our council.

  • Welcome to our four new Brother Knights, most of whom were with us at our Council Business Meeting Tuesday evening. And congratulations to our additional 17 Brother Knights who advanced from second or first degree to Third Degree Knights at our Exemplification of Charity, Unity & Fraternity held Feb 29. Many were recognized at our Business Meeting Tuesday night as well.

    While the start of this Easter Season has certainly been different from years past, I sincerely hope, whether with your immediately family, with your spouse, or just by yourself, you found time to celebrate Easter Sunday & the Octave of Easter in a deeply spiritual and profound way.

    I wanted to send you a couple of updates?

    First, our virtual Business Meeting held via WebEx Tuesday evening April 14th went well and the 35 or so Brother Knights in attendance allowed us to carry on through these unique times of social distancing. Perhaps even better was the virtual social held following the business meeting, and just like in person, some good beverages were enjoyed and good fellowship and laughter was enjoyed as well all online!

    Second, Supreme held an online Exemplification on Thursday evening April 16th and four of our brother Knights (Oscar Garcia, Rick Felini, Patrick Madigan & Chris Miranda) all advanced to the Third Degree. Supreme has announced the success of the online Exemplification nationally. Over 2000 new Knights joined the KofC nationally, and over 7000 Brothers Knights advanced to the Third Degree!

    Given its success, Supreme has announced it will offer additional online Exemplifications each Thursday for the next few weeks. So if any Brother of our Council is interested in advancing to full Knighthood (Third Degree), please let myself and our worthy chancellor know of your interest and we?ll get you the necessary registration links. And if you know of any fellow brothers in our Catholic faith interested in joining the Knights of Columbus, please talk to the me about the online Exemplification and please have them contact myself or our worth chancellor.

    Third, I am happy to announce that two of our Council participants in the KofC Free Throw Challenge were announced as top three finishers in the Commonwealth of VA based on their District Free Throw success. Maria Eckhart placed 2nd Statewide in the 14 year old girls bracket and Andrew McCully placed 3rd in the 10 year old boys bracket. I received the athlete's trophies yesterday from our State Athletic Programs Director and will arrange to get them to the winners soon.

    Fourth, As in years prior, the Knights of Columbus of Council 13467 are excited to have committed to once again help support and cover logistics for the Parish Picnic which will be held at Little Island State Park on Sunday, September 20th. So hold the date! COVID-19 will pass and certainly by September we will be ready to enjoy good music, great fellowship and sun and fun at the beach with our fellow parishioners!

    And lastly, we will plan to hold our Council Business meeting again via WebEx in May and I encourage all brothers to jump on the video link via WebEx or just dial in via conference call if that works better for you. More details will come as we get closer.

    I pray for you and your family?s continued safety and health. I pray that these times of social distancing, while challenging, draw you ever closer to our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ. I pray that the longing in our hearts will grow deeper for the gift of the Eucharist that will be most profoundly experienced when we are once again able to receive in communion with each other and the parish as a whole, hopefully soon. And last I pray that you and yours, may remain ever faithful and continually safe over the days and weeks ahead.

    God Bless & Godspeed my Brothers,
    Fraternally,

    Tom Lundquist
    Grand Knight, Council 13467
