July ended with a very successful lunch at the Trenton Soup Kitchen. Brother knights from 6201 cooked and provided almost 400 meals to the needy in the Trenton area. Thank you To Past Grand Knight and Financial Secretary Bob Clifford and his wife Donna for organizing the meal. Thank you to all the brothers who came out, I'm sure Bob will share more during the committee reports.
Saturday August 6th, following the 5pm mass there will be a reception in Gonzaga Hall to celebrate Monsignor Joe’s 85th birthday and 60 years of service to the church. Please stop by and say hello and wish Monsignor Joe a very happy birthday and thank him for all of his years of service to the church.
Planning has begun for the annual family picnic. This year it will be held on Saturday September 17. Please mark your calendars now. Deputy Grand Knight Frank Schear is holding the next planning meeting soon and I’m sure he could always use another set of hands. Please reach out to him if you are able to assist.
In support of the charities that we donate to at the family picnic, we are selling $20.00 Raffle tickets for a golf getaway weekend for 4 in Ocean City, Maryland. The prize includes accommodations and $800.00 for golf. We will be selling them at the churches on the following dates and times:
St. Aloysius’ Church on August 20th (5:oopm) and 21st (7:00, 8:30, 10:30, & 12pm)
St. Veronica’s Church on September 3rd (4:oopm) and 4th (7:30, 9:00, 10:30, & 12pm)
On Sunday August 14th at 7pm the St Aloysius Rosary Altar Society and the Music Ministry will present “A Concert of Aves” in honor of Our Lady of the Assumption. All are welcome to attend!
The monthly blood drive will be held on Monday August 22, 2022 from 1 to 7pm here at the council. Please see Guard Kevin Lamb, the website or Knightline to sign up for a time slot to donate.
As a way to thank the ministries of both St Veronica’s and St Aloysius parishes, our council will be hosting a picnic on labor day, Monday September 5th 2022 from 12 to 4. We will provide the hot dogs and hamburgers and will request that attendees bring shareable sides and desserts. A flier has been sent to each parish office and is also posted on our website. Please let me know if you could help out.
As always, please keep an eye on the emails that are sent out and the website for an up-to-date calendar of events.
God bless you and your families and
please stay safe!
