We are still in a state of “hold”, as far as Council activities, until further notice.
Only the Boat Cruise is still scheduled for the summer. Our annual LI Ducks baseball game, fishing trip, even the Golf Outing
are canceled for this year.
We do not yet know, for certain, when we will return to in-person meetings, or when we will hold the Installation of Officers.
The Council “ZOOM” meetings have been working out. PGKs Bob Rooney and Ed Cirella even attended. It was nice to
see them and catch up with them. Bob is very busy with the Knights in South Carolina, and Ed with his grandchildren in Texas.
They both miss the gang at OLPH and wish our Brothers all the best.
If you have not yet done so, try attending a “ZOOM” meeting, from the comfort of your own home. ZOOM Meeting ID:

There is GOOD NEWS to report. SPORTS ARE BACK! To all you fans of baseball, basketball, and hockey- our local teams return
to action. Our meeting on August 4th
will be sports jersey/hat night. Wear your favorite team gear that evening.
MORE GOOD NEWS- First Communions have returned to OLPH Church! We pray for the little ones receiving this sacrament, and their
families. I also ask for your prayers for Louis Cona, the seminarian whom we are sponsoring this year, as he journeys toward
priesthood. Our support for ALL vocations is a pillar of the Knights of Columbus, since its inception.
Attendance at Mass slowly increases week by week, and we are needed to serve as Special Ministers of Hospitality, assisting
the Ushers with the parishioners, and disinfecting OLPH Church between Masses. Contact Msgr. DeGrocco or Head Usher Mike Williams,
to offer your help.
The “Leave No Neighbor Behind” program is growing. Our first stage, contacting members that we don’t see
regularly, has begun. The members that Alex Keller’s committee have called, appreciate the thoughtfulness. More people
are needed to reach out to our “forgotten” brothers. Please join this committee. It will warm the hearts of those
you speak with, as well as your own.
In the meantime- STAY SAFE. STAY HEALTHY.
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
