Thanks to all also that came out to support breakfast for Pat Cronin retirement.

Put on your calendars February 10th tentatively for people from St. Alphonsus that have been married 50 years or more we will have something at the KC hall.

We will put in the back of the Church a book to fill out for all married 50 years or more, even if you are not able to come out, please get us the information so we can recognize you.

Let us remember to work hard in every way to help those who cannot help themselves, so that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”, ACT:20:35

Your giving of your time and talent has helped from our local council form others by being involved and making every effort to participate in the same councils.

God Bless

FAMILY OF THE MONTH                                                                                                                                                                         Carl Brochard                                                                                                                                                                                                Robert and Peggy Cox were selected as the Family of the Month.

Let the Grand Knight know if you see a Family that needs to be recognized and we can turn them in.  If they are a non-KC Family, let Father Mike know and we can still recognize them.

FOURTH DEGREE NEWS                                                                                                                                                                           Faithful Navigator – Kenny Gonzales                                                                                                                                                             Sir Knights,

First of all, I would like to thank a couple of Sir Knights who have stepped up to take officer positions in the 4th Degree.  My next goal, or should I say wish, is to get all officers to attend the meetings.  We only meet once a month (4th Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.).  Please try your best to make the next meeting.

The only thing we have on the horizon is to prepare and sell Sausage Biscuits along the route for Crusin the Coast.  We will sell the Friday and Saturday in Ocean Springs where the cars line up early in the morning.  Exact times are not set yet, but it will be early in the norning and we will probably be done by 9:00 or so.  This should be a lot less labor intensive then the Hot Dogs and Beer Booth that we tride a couple of times.  Please let me know if you can help out.  The more people we have out on the street, the more we can sell.  Dennis has volunteered the use of his 4-wheeler to make the rounds.  We could use another utility vehicle to help out too.  If successful, this will probably be our only fund raiser for the year.  Let’s all help out to make it a success.

Vivat Jesus
