The Knight's Shield - April 2022

Happy Easter, He is Risen!

We are approaching Easter and there is a lot still to do. We are continuing fish fries through April 8th. Come on out and join us for a good time serving up food to our community. The Easter meat sales order form is attached. We have the Easter egg hunt coming, a great time for the kids. Last but certainly not least is our 2022 MI Drive. Let Jeff Gapczynski know if you can work it.

Next month begins our officer election process. We will be taking nominations at our April general membership meeting. Then in May a 2nd round of nominations and the elections. If you are interested in taking on a leadership role in the council or have any questions, let me know. It is perfectly acceptable and encouraged to self nominate for a position. 

There is a webinar called "purpose driven retirement strategies" hosted by your K of C insurance agency, presenter Joe Jordan. See the flyer with this newsletter. Please let me know if you sign up for this event as we do get credit if you attend.

The Resurrection is the greatest of the miracles -- it proves that Jesus is God. That is why St. Paul writes: “If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain; and your Faith is in vain… And if Christ has not been raised, then your Faith is a delusion and you are still lost in your sins… But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep” (I Cor 15:14, 17, 20). If Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead, then the Church is a fraud, and Faith is a sham. But if He really did rise from the dead, His message is true! Without the Resurrection, Jesus would have remained forever a good person who had met a tragic end. People would remember some of his teachings, and a handful of people might try to live according to them. All the basic doctrines of Christianity are founded on the truth of the Resurrection. “Jesus is Lord; He is risen” (Rom 10:9) was the central theme of the kerygma (or "preaching"), of the Apostles. In fact, the seventeenthcentury philosopher, John Locke, some of whose ideas were incorporated into the Declaration of Independence, wrote, "Our Savior’s Resurrection is truly of great importance in Christianity, so great that His being or not being the Messiah stands or falls with it."

Vivat Jesus!
