Brothers, the month of November has traditionally been a time of remembrance. All Saints Day. All Souls Day. With this in
mind, our Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, November 13th, at 8 pm, at OLPH Church. We will gather to pray for the
members of our Council and Ladies Auxiliary who have died within the last twelve months. A reception will follow in the gymnasium.
Please continue to pray for deceased brothers and sisters, as well as your own loved ones.
We continue to develop new programs for Faith in Action. A leadership training session was recently held, and we will
find new directions to do good works. Please visit kofc.org, look up "PROGRAMS" for more information. I cannot
stress enough how important it is for the success of our Council to follow these new guidelines.
GOOD NEWS: We have three new brothers. Welcome Frank, John and George. Tim Gill ran a successful Food Drive for the
St. Vincent de Paul pantry.
BAD NEWS: Bob Dobres has decided to give up his positions of Financial Secretary and Tidings Editor. We will need to
fill these positions almost immediately. Please contact me if you know of a qualified candidate.
Please support the Wheelchair Initiative. Suffolk Chapter is going to purchase 110 wheelchairs, to be distributed
to those in need within the county. We will accept donations (maybe throw in a couple of extra bucks with your DUES payment)
and hold a District-wide fundraiser later. Visit our FACEBOOK page: Knights of Columbus Council 794. We still need to
have more members receive the Tidings by e-mail. The money we save in printing and postage costs will allow us to provide
funding for more charitable contributions. Send me your e-mail address. Finally, Happy Thanksgiving to all.
