Our Lady of Perpetual Help Council Number 794 – Founded July 19, 1903
June is a month to honor our fathers. Let us be thankful for all they have done for us. Let us pray for them, especially for those we have lost. Also remember that this year is dedicated to St. Joseph, Guardian of Mary and Jesus. Allow him to be our role model as a father.
At the meeting on June 1st, we will host elections for the men who will lead us through the 2021-22 Columbian year. Show your support for them by becoming an active member in the Council and Parish. Participate in the charitable, spiritual and social programs that will be offered.
We will have a social meeting on June 15th, at which we will present scholarships and awards, as well as “changing of the chairs”. Please attend.
Look for information about our Gilgo Beach charitable event; our planned group
dinners at restaurants that are part of the “Friends of the Knights”; the summer cruise in the Great South Bay; the annual Golf Outing; and an update on the World War Veterans building. Raffle tickets are still available for the Suffolk Chapter Charity drive. $10 for a book of fifteen with a chance to win $2500, $1000 or $500. This year’s beneficiary is Catholic HomeCare’s “Helping Hands” program. Staff are sent to the homes of elderly and disabled, to assist them with housework, laundry, shopping, and other services.
I hope you were able to participate in remembrance services for Memorial Day,
honoring the men and women who sacrificed their lives for love of our country, and recognizing veterans. And maybe you had a chance to attend our “sneak peek” of our future home.
Happy Father’s Day. Vivat Jesus!
