Chaplain’s Message - Really appreciated the blueberry pancakes and the flower sale, and all the Knights do for the parish. Two requests: Help with setup and teardown of Pentecost celebration the evening of June 3 and the afternoon of June 4, help with setup and teardown of Junque and Jewels Friday June 16, Saturday Morning June 17, Sunday afternoon June 25. Ted Seeber CANNOT chair any of these events, due to his parent's upcoming 50th wedding anniversary, and so we are asking for volunteers.

Reading of Minutes

7:15 Grand Knight’s Remarks - We competed with ourselves over the past month. Next year, we should move breakfasts to avoid other events. When we have Christ working through us, it feels right, it feels good, we know it is right. Mary's fiat was right- when we serve as Knights and when we do it right, it shines brightly to the rest of the world. Thanks from Joanne for Phil stepping up to serve. When we are all working at the breakfast- it feels right. When we are one with the church, we know we are doing right and it feels right. Let the Lord keep working through us.

State Conference

  • Daniel gave report:  I feel stronger as a Catholic Man.  Felt like when I was in Israel visiting the Knights Templar building.  Revival is really happening- going back to true Christianity.  Some disconnect between to the Magisterium and the Laity- impressed by the number of young Knights there.   Bridge the gaps between Knights of Columbus and Men's Groups.  Lake Oswego does spiritual stuff and retreat once a year.  Families and reaching out to men at the margins.  College Knights from UP, OSU, and UofO made a big showing.  Next year's convention will be at Boulder Falls Conference Center in Lebanon.  Holy League Men's Conference in Mt Angel this year, October 20-21, 2017; featuring Bishop Smith, Fr. Bill Casey, Doug Barry, Deacon Harrold Burke Silvers.  Sign up at   .    If we find a way to donate $500 to the RSVP program for vocations (to a seminarian) we can get $100 back from Supreme for our council.

  • State Summer Meeting will be July 21-23, at the Boulder Falls Conference Center in Lebanon, we need 2 Knights to go from our council, who's up for it?
Pancake Breakfast
  • For next year, avoid Divine Mercy Sunday and Easter so we don't tire ourselves out.
Divine Mercy Cards
