Dear Brothers,
Christmas is behind us. But the Christmas SEASON continues for a few more weeks. I hope everyone got a chance to go to one of the Christmas liturgies, and that you enjoyed being with family and friends for the holidays.
Our Members Christmas party was enjoyed by all who attended. The exceptional Children's Christmas Party was huge! In all the years I have attended, I cannot remember such a crowd of guests. Thank you to Chairman Joe Ryzak, and all the volunteers, who made this event the success it was.
The Men's Retreat was an enlightening experience. Thank you to our Chaplain and Pastor, Msgr. Joseph DeGrocco, for the talks. Most of the men stayed for the 5pm Mass afterwards. I wish more Brothers would consider a retreat as a priority, an awakening. Remember that ;spiritual renewa; is now a required program for Faith in Action. Other required Faith in Action programs include the Consecration to the Holy Family, in which we participated the weekend of December 28/29, Holy Family Weekend; and the Novena for Life, scheduled to begin on Sunday, January 19th.
As we enter 2020, we have more opportunities to volunteer to serve our Church and our neighbors.
Information on the;Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest, and the annual Free Throw contest can be found inside. The annual March for Life, in Washington, DC, is coming up. If you cannot go to Washington, please pray for the success of our efforts to end abortion-on-demand.
We will be hosting a 2nd (Formation) degree at the January 7th meeting. After that, the format for initiation of new members will change drastically. More information will be available at that meeting.
I wish all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ, a Happy and Blessed 2020.
I anticipate a big announcement soon.
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
