Knights of Columbus- July 2015
Hi, hope your celebrations for the 4th were great. Some of us celebrated by having family parties, going to the lake, going on picnics, watching firework shows, or shooting off fireworks ourselves. Whatever you did, I hope you and your family had a great time. This weekend we welcomed a new pastor and Shepard of Saint Jude, Father Jim Manzer. There will be changes and we as the sheep must follow the lead of the Shepard. Father Jim, as he likes to be called, will be spending the summer getting used to our ways in order to understand what we do before making changes to our methods. The first change is moving his chair at Mass so he is facing the congregation and the Alter at the same time. Father’s big test will be in September with the start of RCIA, Stewardship and the Parish picnic. The Parish picnic is scheduled for Sunday, September 20. Watch the bulletin for what your family needs to bring to the party. The Knights will be supplying the meats. At this time, the menu has not been voted on. If you have not met Father Jim, this will be a good time for a meet-and-greet with him. See you at the picnic! The Knight of the month for June is Brian Maschino, and the family of the month for June is Ken and Linda Baily. Vivat Jesus, Alex Federico, FS
