Grand Knight's Message for April, 2017
This Sunday is already Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. I have been following Matthew Kelly's videobased email program, Best Lent Ever since Day 1. Each day he shares a special insight into being the best version of yourself. One of the examples I adopted was to pray more. I actually prayed while waiting at the deli counter at ShopRite. That was something I never would have done before this program.
April will be a busy month for our Council. We start off on the 8th with DGK Andy Liebhauser and our Easter Egg Hunt at Lurker Park. Andy has a special gift when it comes to working with children.
Rich Koscielak, another talented Brother Knight, is taking names and phone numbers for volunteers to collect for our Handicapped Citizens Drive this month. Give Rich a call at 9736326407 to volunteer a little time for those less fortunate. Remember that we are no longer collecting at intersections.
On the 23rd four of our Brother Knights, Rich K., Frank D., Vinny P. and Anthony L., will be making their 4th degree (Patriotism). The next time you see each of them please offer your congratulations.
On Monday April 24th Ann Grossi, Esq., Morris County Clerk, will be speaking at 8 p.m. before our meeting regarding the operations, duties and responsibilities of her office. Also, she can answer any questions regarding passports, elections or notaries.
On April 30th at 2:45 p.m. Chris Virginio will lead his 5th Sunday Rosary in the Church. All are welcome.
Looking ahead, the Fourth Degree Council sponsors a Mass and Breakfast on Sunday June 4th. They honor three Knights who have gone above and beyond in their dedication to the Knights. I have nominated PGK Larry Colasurdo for Patriot of the Year and nominated PGK Ron Angelo for Sir Knight of the Year. I think all of my Brother Knights would agree that Larry and Ron are role models and mentors to us all. I'm rooting for both of them.
Happy Birthday to all my Brother Knights born in April!
Please keep the following people, who are sick, in your prayers: Brother Nick Rello, Rick Musso and his Mother Josephine, Brother Pat Dedeo, Brother John Stabile's wife Linda, Brother Greg Donofrio's Mom, Joan Hughes, and Fred Donatelli, Jr.
In closing I would like to wish all of my Officers, Brothers and their families a Blessed Easter. Always remember the sacrifices our Lord made for us so that we may be granted eternal life.
Your Brother in Christ,
Joe Carvagno, GK
