Grand Knight Update

September 26, 2023

Resurrection Council Knights,

Brother Knights, I hope you are well as we gently transition from Summer to Fall! I look forward to watching the leaves turn their Fall colors (and for the grass to stop growing so darn fast)!

We have already sold ~225 Italian Dinner tickets, and we anticipate selling more on Friday evening. The turnout looks to be so good that we have increased our volunteer opportunities to ensure we have a smooth-running dinner!

Below you will find the link to our updated Italian Dinner Night SignUpGenius (you will find new volunteer opportunities for Ticket Sales in the Pastoral Center LobbyTicket Takers at the Main Door of the Tent; and 50:50 Sales in the Tent (as you will notice, we have sufficient setup, server, runner, and reset volunteers). Since this is one of our primary fundraisers that allow us to donate funds to our community, this is indeed our opportunity to serve and contribute to our neighboring community!
NOTEIf you are volunteering for the setup of the tent, please don't forget to enter the Parking Lot via Chatham Road (and please don't park in the designated RSPS "Stadium Parking."

Although it was specifically requested by the Catholic Daughters of America, I am also providing everyone access to a Dessert SignUpGenius for the Italian Dinner (in case you or your beloved would like to provide a dessert for Friday night’s dinner).  There are currently 6 opportunities for either Knights or Knight’s Ladies to provide a dessert for the Italian Dinner.

Brother Tom Shenk, our Faith Director, has printed the tickets and he is now ready to sell Dinner Tickets to any Resurrection Knight who wants to attend our annual Clergy Appreciation Dinner on Tuesday November 14th at the Bon Secours Convention and Retreat Center. Tickets are $40 person and can be purchased by sending a check to Tom at his "Snail Mail" address (15 North Stead Court, Catonsville, MD 21228). The Knights Memorial Mass will begin at 6:30pm in the Bon Secours Chapel (no ticket is required to attend the Mass), and the Dinner will begin promptly after the Mass). Anyone with questions about the Mass or the Dinner should reach out to Tom directly via his email or mobile phone at 410.303.5456.

And finally, it is the time of year to stand watch and exchange Tootsie Rolls for Donations (so we can continue supporting Camp Glow and Champions for the Challenged). The link for the SignUpGenius for the first two campaign weekends (October 6-7 and October 14-15) can be found below:
