Many Knights turned out this morning to prepare and serve breakfast within the Parish Hall. New faces were seen at the toasters, even though the faces were well known. We made the pancakes from scratch. The bacon was cut by Gene Pinkham from a fresh slab. Scrambled eggs, seasoned diced potatoes, hash, and beans were also available for the people we fed. We wish to thank the continued patronage of old friends who come to eat together.
Soup And Stations
The Council owes a round of thanks to our Brother Knight and his wife, Bill and Anne Quigley, for brewing up and serving the soups for the simple meal preceding Friday’s Stations of the Cross. They were ably supported by our Grand Knight, Tom Monahan. It is Lent. I invite all of you to join us for Soup and Stations this coming Friday and every Friday in Lent to meditate on our Savior’s sacrifice.
Spring Training Breakfast
On Sunday, February 21 2016, the Knights will be preparing and serving breakfast in honor of the Red Sox after the 9am and 11am masses. Your help would be appreciated. Arrive early and offer to help the cooks. Arrive for a serving round and offer to work the serving line. Arrive as we wrap up and pitch in cleaning up the Parish Hall. Or come for it all. Your help would definitely be appreciated. You will get good fellowship and a rewarding sense of accomplishment as we raise funds for the Council work, but more importantly, we provide a time for members of the parish to come together and renew their friendships.
About this time every year, the Council prepares and serves a breakfast for the parish capped by a visit by Old Saint Nick himself. This year, it happened to fall on Saint Nick’s saint day. We take pictures of the children, of all ages, in Santa’s lap and print them out on the spot. Then the children are presented with candy or gingerbread houses. Santa, of course, takes notes of their Christmas wishes.
Santa with Jim Bari, a charter Knight in our Council, and all of his grandchildren. The young lady is his daughter, Maria Farrell.
The Council met on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, and confirmed several events for the coming months.
- We will serve a pasta supper at the Monsignor Neagle apartments on Saturday, February 14, at 4pm.
- Spring Training Breakfast, in honor of the Red Sox, will served after the 9am and 11am masses on Sunday, February 22. Help will be needed anytime between 7am and 1pm: setup and cooking before the meal, serving line during, and clean up after.
- St Patrick’s Day Supper is planned after the 4pm mass for Saturday, March 14, after coordination with GOF. We will be inviting step dancers from the Heavey Quinn Academy again. Help will be needed as early as 8am and as late as 7pm: as before, setup and cooking before, serving during, and clean up after.
- With Palm Sunday coming, the Council will meet in the Parish Hall to make palm crosses on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 24 – 26, from 7pm to 8pm. Bring scissors. If you do not know how to fold palm crosses, both instructions and training will be available.
Please consider helping out at any or all of these events. In particular, helping to make palm crosses is a great time for fellowship with fellow knights and their families as all are invited to help.
