-Do You Remember Why You Joined
The KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS?

 
-A MESSAGE FROM THE GRAND KNIGHT:
Brothers,
-I held my last official meeting as your Grand Knight on
the 18th of this month. I want to thank you for all your
support and guidance.
-To summarize this past year, let me start by saying that
through the VKCCI we have helped five families. We have
joined together and collected for KOVAR. We helped the kids
with their fishing experience at Ocean View Fishing Pier.
We continuously supported the community by performing regular
street clean ups. We held a Third Degree Exemplification after
many years. And even though Father Beeman didn’t seek our help,
we assisted the Parish with dedicated brothers counting money
from collections, serving as ushers. EM’s. and readers.
-So you can see, we have been very active in our duties of
charity and unity. We have also come together as a fraternity
of Catholic men to continue to be active by involving our
families in our functions. This would include spaghetti dinners,
a holiday party, a valentines dinner and dance, an oyster roast,
and several picnics. All have benefited our Council.
-I will conclude by bringing you the best news we have heard in
over 11 years. I reached out to our new Pastor, Father James Glass,
and would like to enclose our e-mails. (See Below)
-Thank You Again!!! Please take this new vision and work with your
new Grand Knight and all the new and returning officers so that we
may carry on the Legacy of Council #3548.
-Grand Knight 2018-2019

Dear Jim,
Thank you for reaching out to welcome me! I appreciate it. I was talking
to Msgr. Muench last week, who has a home in Norfolk, and he mentioned
Council #3548 to me, and so, I am glad we have made contact. I have been
associated with the Knights in ever parish I have been in for the past 15
years, including here at the College of William and Mary. So, I look
forward to working with you at Holy Trinity, also. I look forward to
meeting you in person and working with the Council to serve the people
of Ocean View. God Bless you and see you in July.
Fr. James
