would like to congratulate the newly installed officers of the
Ladies of Auxiliary and the Knute Rockne Squires Circle #82.
We wish the Ladies of Auxiliary and Squire Officers the best of luck this
would also like to congratulate our newly installed 3rd
degree knights, which was held on July 27th in Brentwood. Four of
them were former Squires of Knute Rockne Circle #82. I encourage all Brother Knights
to bring in one new member this
this Columbian year we will have some changes. Our first
minor change, which you may have noticed at our last council meeting, was the
dedication of the 5th Decade of the Rosary. This was offered up to
the men and women who are serving our
country overseas and at home. Moving forward at each Council meeting the 5th
Decade will be offered up to a
special intention from a member. I
invite all our Brother Knights to send their request to me either by phone or
As this Columbian year moves forward

in. At our next council meeting on August 5th we will hold Baseball Jersey
night, come on out wear your ball team’s colors and enjoy some ballpark franks!

the Installation of Officers will be held on September 6th. For more

Just a brief update on the building,
currently the last potential buyer has backed out. We are still looking for a
buyer. If any member knows anyone interested in the building or property, have
them contact Bob Meade at Century 21. Our reservations calendar has opened to
the end of the December 2014. As for the Council we will continue planning our
events as normal. We need to remember our Council’s future is bright and we
will continue to move forward.
Father McGivney founded and led the new order of the Knights of
Columbus he used the Principles of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity to guide him
through the beginning of the Order. This year the officers of OLPH Council have
put together a mission statement using Charity, Unity and Fraternity as the
Mission Statement: As a council we should always
remembers how fortunate we are in life, how our Charity can help so many, let’s all work in the name of Charity to help
those in need and to better our Council. With Unity and Fraternity our officers
and members together we can accomplish anything. Our council officers will make
every effort to uphold the proud history of OLPH 794 and once again to be the
Flagship Council of Long Island and indeed the State.
