July Grand Knight’s Message

My Brother Knights,

I want to thank the brothers and their family members that participated on June 10th with the parish breakfast, without their service this event would not have been possible. All of the proceeds from the breakfast will be used to purchase needed items /supplies for Good Shepherd Church.

I am still seeking brother knights from our council to volunteer to adopt the fourth Sunday of each month to assist our brother knights in the Donald J. Burns Council at LI Vets Home to attend Sunday service. You would not be committing to every 4th Sunday, just the Sundays you are available to volunteer.  We would need to arrive around10am, and we should be completed by 11:45am. Your family members and friends are also welcomed to volunteer for this much needed and appreciated service for our brother knights. Please contact me to volunteer or if you need additional information.

Father Michael has requested that our council assist with the setup of the large tent and chairs for the Outdoor Mass to begin Good Shepherd’s Vacation Bible Camp week. The mass will be Sunday, July 15th in the small parking lot at 5PM. We need volunteers to meet at the church 1-1:15 pm to assist with the setup, the hour or so up spent helping will assist in making the Vacation Bible Camp a success.

I am looking into organizing another social event in August. We are looking into a fishing trip out of Captree Boat Basin; I will have the details by my next Grand Knight message next month.

Have a safe and blessed Fourth of July

Fraternally, Allen D. Gordon
