Our Lady of Perpetual Help Council Number 794 – Founded July 19, 1903

Happy New Year, Brothers.
I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas. We all had to change the way we celebrated, both in the way attended Mass, and gathered (or not) with family.
2021 will be another year of changes…. A new president with a new administration.
New hope for an end to the COVID-19 virus. Changes from Supreme, for the way we conduct meetings. If you attend Council meetings, either in-person or via ZOOM, things will be different, but not drastically different. The officers are working out a plan to implement some of Supreme’s recommended changes. The changes are meant to make meetings more relevant, to include more social activities, and to complete meetings within one hour. This process will evolve over the next few months.
We will conduct an in-person Exemplification of the principles of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity, on Saturday evening, January 30th, following the 5pm Mass. We are moving ever closer to achieving our goal of twenty new members for the Columbian year. STAR Council is within reach. This is largely due to the efforts of Patrick Corcoran, to whom I presented Knight of the Quarter.
We participated in the Consecration to the Holy Family prayers and will take part in the Novena for Life prayers, beginning January 17, as we prepare for the March for Life.
I have been in contact with Seminarian Louis Cona, whom we sponsor through the RSVP program. He is currently working with Father John Sureau and asked to extend his prayers and best wishes to all of us, for our support of his vocation. We may even “see” him, on-line, at future Council meetings.
Please prayer for our country. Please pray for each other. Blessed Michael McGivney, pray for us.
Vivat Jesus!
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
