  Knights of Columbus Monthly Meeting


November 29, 2017

Rosary at 6:45 - Meeting 7:00

“As we gather around the table today to share what we are GRATEFUL for with one another, we must remember that we are called not just to speak words of gratitude, but to LIVE and WALK by them!  Because it’s not what we say about our BLESSINGS, but how we USE THEM, this is the TRUE measure of our THANKSGIVING!!”  LeeAnne Locken

Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday because of its inherent simplicity.  You gather together family and/or friends to share a meal and to consider all that we have to be thankful for in our lives.  That’s pretty much it.  So simple that you would think we would do it more than once a year, however the busyness of our schedules seem to prohibit us from doing so.  

Excluding things like family, friends, and good health, here are 10 random things I am thankful for.  1. Beer in a frosty mug. 2. Seinfeld reruns. 3. Finding money in a pair of jeans after they have been through the wash. 4. Off the wall humor and laughing till it hurts. 5. The peacefulness of an empty church. 6. Acoustic guitars. 7. Sitting around a bon fire. 8. Hitting a 5 iron pure. 9. A good book that’s hard to put down. 10. Motivational quotes. 

Parade of Lights Soup Supper.  Our November 17th Soup Supper was a success.   We had a great turnout serving approximately 300 people.  The Money raised from this event will help support the religious vocations of Adam Pinkelman , and Devon Kathol.  Adam is the son of Brian and Lynette Pinkelman and Devon is the daughter of Colin and Monica Kathol.  Thanks to all who were in attendance and for all of you who said yes when asked to help work.  Thank you Donna Burbach for doing a great job making the soup and chili.  We had lots of positive comments on how good the food tasted.    

On the Lighter Side  

-Nothing shows a man’s character more that what he laughs at.  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 Reverend Billy Graham tells of a time early in his ministry when he arrived in a small town to preach a sermon.  Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was.  When the boy had told him, Dr. Graham thanked him and said, “If you’ll come to the Baptist Church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to Heaven.”

“ I don’t think I’ll be there,” the boy said.  “You don’t even know your way to the post office.”

Monsignor Werner Council 1233 newest members!!  Christian Krie, Tom Wiebelhaus,  Jason Dendniger, Tim Loberg and Todd Wiebelhaus were initiated into our Fraternity on Sunday Oct. 22nd.  If you see any of these gentleman please welcome and thank them for joining.  

A life of faith…enables us to see God in everything and it holds the mind in a state of readiness for whatever may be His will.  Francois Fenelon
