September 2023


As we enter September, we have slowed down a little bit for this month. July and August were  very productive months. 

A short recap, we started the month off moving a safe from St Isaac Jogues in Evesham to St Aloysius. By  doing this we helped two Parishes out. Thanks to my brothers who helped in the move. 

The Texas Roadhouse Dine to Donate for Sophia was well attended, thanks to all who came out on July  11th

That was followed the next weekend with our Officer’s Installation Mass and dinner. Special thanks to Fr  Bambrick for bringing the Mass to our Council home. Thanks to all who came out to join the new and re-elected Officers and their families in prayer, food and for helping set up and clean up after. 

The last weekend of the month was very busy. We started the morning cooking and serving food to  those in need at the Cathedral in Trenton. Big thanks to PGK Bob Clifford for setting this up and to the Loaves and Fishes Ministry for inviting us each year to help out. It’s a very rewarding experience and a  lot of fun as well. 

Later that evening we had our summer concert to benefit Sophia, the “Sunshine Warrior”. The band, OC  Jukebox was fantastic and had the crowd dancing and singing along. It was a great night, the beer was  flowing and lots of food was eaten. Thanks to all who set this up and worked the event. 

August 4th was the Annual Blue Claws Event hosted by the Rt Rev John Baldwin Assembly 658. It was Star  Wars night, we got to meet our favorite Star Wars characters. The 4th Degree Assembly 658 presented the Colors before the game. The money raised from ticket sales benefited the Veterans from the  Menlo Park VA. A few of the Vets were in attendance that evening. Fireworks followed the game. Our  Social Meeting and Rosary was canceled that night so we could attend the game. 

August 5th KCGC was at Cedar Creek Golf Course 

August 6th we had a Communion breakfast to welcome Fr RJ to St Aloysius. This was after the 10:30 am  Mass. We had a good amount of volunteers helping that day, Thanks to all who helped.

Sunday August 13th, we had our second Annual Blessed McGivney Mass at St Aloysius. Mass was at  12:00 pm followed by our Ministry BBQ back at the Council. It was also a combined birthday party for Fr  PJ (August 6th), Fr McGivney (August 12th) and Fr Bambrick (August 15th). It was a good time.  

August 19th was Assembly 658’s first annual Chaplains Appreciation Dinner. It took place at the Spring  Lake Manor in Spring Lake. This was for the benefit and thanks to our Military Chaplains. 

August 20th KCGC was at Cranbury Country Club. 

August 26-27th we sold raffle tickets for the Annual Golf Charity which benefits our local charities. The  drawing will be September 30th at our annual Family Picnic. 

Our September Social Meeting has been canceled due to a scheduling conflict, the business meeting is  still scheduled for September 15th, please come out and see what is happening with the Club and  Council.
