With this in mind we would ask that if you have an announcement that you would like noted in the newsletter that you please get your information to us by the 15th of the previous month, (i. e.) for the November issue we would need submissions by the 15th of October. You are welcome to e-mail us your information at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lawn and Bake sale went very well and we thank you for your assistance. The Children’s Carnival was a Huge Success. Along with the blessings of beautiful weather; we had the blessing of many smiles from all the children who were thoroughly enjoying themselves. We have included photos from the Carnival for you to enjoy. We want to extend a warm thank you to Henry Raymond for the pictures. Thank you also, Brother Knights for a great day!
September 11, a year gone by from the devastation and grief that struck our Nation, our World and our hearts. Many memorial services were taking place around our Nation that day and many were taking place close to home as well. One place being, St. Luke. We want to thank Mike Theoret for organizing the very prayerful memorial ceremony. We want to thank Deacon Steve Ratte for his very moving and heartfelt homily, thank you to Bob Bessette and Pete Fitzgerald for helping to provide the music and to the Brother Knights who provided refreshments.
We have learned that, due to lack of sign-up the parish picnic that was originally scheduled for Sunday the 22nd has been cancelled for this year.
I have been in contact with Paul Jansen regarding the Parish Golf Tournament scheduled for this fall. Paul has informed me that he is presently too involved in the political race for Georgia/Fairfax and unfortunately will not have the extra time to get the Tournament organized for this year. If there is another Knight who would like to organize this event, please let me know. Otherwise we will cancel the event for this year.
Thank you and God Bless you and your families,
Brother Patrick Queor
DGK and Program Director
