Dear Brothers and Sisters in Columbianism,


I 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 Columbian year.


I 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 year.


During 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 email.


            As this Columbian year moves forward you will see many different events that all our Brother Knights can take part 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!


Please mark your calendars for these upcoming events: the Squires and Knights are hosting BBQ & Western night on August 22nd and the Installation of Officers will be held on September 6th. For more information on these events and other upcoming events,  please see the tidings.


            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.


As 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 corner stone.


OLPH Council's 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.


I  thank you for your support and let us in Charity, Unity and Fraternity move to a Bright Future!


Fraternally Yours


Philip A. Renna
