  Knights of Columbus Monthly Meeting


June 27th 2018

Rosary 7:45 Meeting 8:00 PM

Brother Knights,

This will be my last newsletter as Grand Knight of council 1233.  I am thankful for having the opportunity to have served our council for the past 2 years.  Dean Wortmann will be the new Grand Knight and 
Reggie Hochstein will serve as Deputy Grand Knight.  Thank these 2 men for voluntarily stepping into these roles when you see them.  One of the greatest calling as members of the Knights of Columbus is to help build and sustain our Catholic faith now and for future generations.  As laymen we must put our faith into action by furthering the cause of Jesus by being fishers of men.  We are all called to help “Build the Domestic Church.”

Sunday July 1st will be the server party.  The Knights have helped serve food for this event the last couple of years.  Father Korte has reserved the Hartington swimming pool from 5-6:30pm of Sunday July 1st for all those kids that help serve mass for Holy Trinity Parish.  The Knights will be grilling hot dogs in Felber Park for the kids after they are done swimming.  Dean Wortmann and I will be calling on some of our Knights for help with this event.  

I would like to share with you a face book post I recently came across. For whatever reason bipartisanship in our country seems stronger than ever and everyone seems to have an opinion one way or another on our current President.  Here is what I would like to share………..”Some of the most incredible people I know voted for Donald Trump, and some of the most incredible people I know voted for Hillary Clinton.  The people I know that voted for Trump are not racist, misogynistic, or hateful.  The people that voted for Hillary Clinton are not hateful and intolerable.  If you are someone who woke up this morning and is going to start seeing people as who they voted for, and not as the person you have always know them to be, then you are what is wrong with America.  I will never think any less of any person who has different views than me, because some of the most beautiful, inspirational people I know will disagree with what I believe all day long, but at the end of the day they are still that beautiful inspirational person I have always know them as.  Don’t think less of people because some of their beliefs don’t align with yours, and don’t lose quality people in your life because you chose hate over love. “ Bob Nichols 

Reflections…….5 ways to get along with other People   

-Keep skid chains on your tongue; always say less than you think.  Cultivate a low, persuasive voice.  How you say it often counts more than what you say.

-Make promises sparingly, and keep them faithfully, no matter what the cost.

-Let your virtues speak for themselves.  Refuse to talk of another’s vices. Discourage gossip.  It is a waste of valuable time and can be extremely destructive.

-Never let an opportunity pass to say a kind and encouraging word to or about somebody.

-Be cheerful.  Don’t burden or depress those around you by dwelling on your minor aches and pains and small disappointments.  Remember everyone is carrying baggage.
