Hello Brother Knights,

I expect this to be my last report to you Brother Knights as your Grand Knight. I elected not to run for a second term so that I can go back to school and finish up my Bachelor’s Degree. The thought around here is that you run your first term to get your feet wet, and the second term is to get it right. Unfortunately I will not get it right, at least for now. It was an honor serving you as your Grand Knight this past year, I hope that you feel I did a decent job at it. But I have some great guys waiting in my wing to take over. I want to thank all of the officers that I have served with this past year. You guys are all a great bunch, and I especially want to thank Fr. Mark and Deacon Jim for the spiritual guidance at our meetings.

I want to take a second before I go any further to acknowledge someone that quite frankly does not get a lot of attention, but he really gets out name out there. That Brother Knight’s name is Jim Bis, our scribe. Jim has been doing our newsletter for quite some time now, and he always does a great Job! I think we owe him a big thank you for the hard work and time that he puts into this newsletter every couple of months. Thanks Jim.

Back on March 25th, our council sponsored a “Rosary for Life” at St. Ann’s. I hope to keep at least 2 rosaries going every year. When I started as Grand Knight, I Said I wanted to grow our council closer to our Blessed Mother, and tie in more with Pro-Life causes. The Rosary, as well as some Pro-Life initiatives we continue to do, are examples of that. So, thank you for your support.

Our Clergy Night is coming up on May 9th of this year. I hope all of you can come out and show our appreciation for our clergy. Dominic Podsiadlik and Mike Kabala do a great job with this, so come out and enjoy an evening of good food and entertainment.

Mike Wysocki, Grand Knight

New Information!

Attention all third degree members:

December, 2012

Please be advised that I was notified this week that the mandatory 6 month wait period for a Brother Knight to join the Fourth Degree from the date of his First Degree has been discontinued. This means that a Third Degree Brother in good standing can take his Fourth Degree at any time. Realistically he could take his First, Second and Third Degrees on a Sunday and his Fourth Degree the next Saturday.

I hope this clarifies your questions and if I can be of any additional assistance please let me know.

Vivat Jesus!
