Grand Knight Update

Greetings to my Brother Knights as we officially begin the Lenten Season!

Today is Ash Wednesday -- I hope to see many of you at the 5pm Church of the Resurrection Ash Wednesday Service.
 
Tomorrow is our Monthly Council Membership Meeting and post-meeting Fellowship– we will begin at 7:30pm in the Chapel.  We have a very busy 2-3 months ahead of us, and we will discuss many of the upcoming events that will require our "enthusiastic" participation.
 
On Wednesday, March 6 starting at 6pm, Archbishop Lori has invited all Maryland Knights to Vespers and a Reception at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption. This is AB Lori's way of saying Thank You to Councils and Knights who support and sustain our Archdiocesan Seminarians. If you want to attend, please RSVP to the Vocations Office at 410.547.5426 or email Mary Beck at mary.beck@archbalt.org
 
I ask every Council Knight to prayerfully consider running for the Pastoral Council. Our parish will be soliciting interested parishioners next month for elections that are scheduled for the end of April.

And finally, I ask you to please review the list of Prayer Requests, February Birthdays, and Upcoming Events found below -- there have been updates!

VIVAT JESUS!
