Friday Fish Fry - Ray Coughlin

    Ash Wednesday is now only a week or so away, and with that brings the return of the annual Fish Fry.  Our biggest and most involved Council function is set to start on Friday, March 4, and run for 6 weeks from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This will be a Drive-Thru Carry-out event — no indoor dining. We did well last year serving over 450 dinners each week. We anticipate similar volume this year.

    To achieve this, we need the support and help of our Council members. So far some 25 brothers along with wives and friends have volunteered to help. I’d like to reach out for a few additional volunteers to make sure all positions are covered and ensure we’re adequately staffed when people are out or on sojourn to sunny Florida.  

    Jobs are available both inside the social hall assembling dinners, as well as outside delivering meals and working traffic control. If you have not already signed up to work, please let me know if you can help. Please respond by e-mail, phone or text.

    If you are hesitant to “commit” or “sign-up,” just show up any Friday any time from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm, and we’ll put you to work.

Thank you!

The Knight's Shield - March 2022

 Happy March!

    If you haven't heard yet, we have a new Parish Priest starting July 1st. It has been announced that Father John Kiselika will be our pastor. We have been blessed...and continue to be...with great clergy here at St. Paul’s!

    There is an urgent need for ministers at all Masses: Please consider during this time of Lent to volunteer for a ministry. Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors are desperately needed at all Masses. This is a great opportunity to show the parish how much we Knights care about our parish.

    March 12 at Noon is a memorial mass at our parish for JoAnne Sziisz, the wife of our Past Grand Knight Karl Sziisz. Please consider attending this to show support for our Past Grand Knight.

 Lent is quickly approaching, Ash Wednesday will be here before you know it. As Catholics we are given three penitential practices to follow in order to have a grace filled Lent. Prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are those three practices.  Daily prayer, such as the Rosary, which each of us were given the day we became Knights would be a great commitment for Lent this year. We all know what fasting is, although many of us are not required to any longer. It helps us show self-control and not give in to temptation.  Almsgiving is also important, this means giving beyond what you "normally" do. If we follow these practices it will help to have a Lent that means something.

Vivat Jesus!
