Our council has discussed our annual family picnic, and decided to cancel it at this time due to the current pandemic concerns and likely lack of interest in attendance. We will look to have a council picnic in the spring or potential the fall of 2021. On a side note, the annual Ste. Marie du Lac Parish picnic has been delayed until further notice for the same reasons.

We pray for vocations to religious life, and most thought defaults to the priesthood. But, we pray for vocations to all religious life including these sisters. Such a joyous occasion for all, now and for eternity.

"I receive your vows with great joy." The words of Mother Agnes Mary, Superior General of the Sisters of Life as she welcomes two new Sisters into their order during a beautiful Mass of Perpetual Professions, celebrated by Cardinal Dolan in upstate New York.

Something for a practicing Catholic man to consider and take advantage of this new option to join our ranks.

News from the council! We will have our monthly meeting on Thu-5/28 at 7pm after a few months away. We need to elect our next years' officers, etc. so participation would be appreciated. With that said, for those with compromised immune systems or otherwise concerned for their health pertaining to Covid-19, we will understand if you can not attend.

While we do not know when we will start having our normal monthly meetings yet, we will be having a trash pick up along our adopt-a-highway on Highway 72 on Saturday-4/18. We will be meeting at our KC Hall at 8am. Social distancing will be observed, but we can space out along the highway shoulders to clean up the litter and do some good in these unusual times. Hope to see you there. Many hands make lighter work for everyone.

Like most places and gatherings have done, the Knights of Columbus organization has asked that we do not have local in-person meetings/gatherings due to the Covid-19 concerns. With that said, we will not have our regular monthly meeting for March, and the next meeting date is still in question. Also, the benefit that was being arranged for Adam Allgier and his family has been postponed as well. But, anyone who wishes to provide immediate support for them can mail or drop off donations at our hall (137 S Main in Fredericktown, MO 63645), and we will see that gets sent on to them. Thank you.

We received this by email today from the Supreme Council->

A message from the Supreme Knight

Dear Brother Knight,

As the world confronts the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you the actions and responses taken by the Knights of Columbus.
The coronavirus disease is not the first pandemic the Knights of Columbus has faced. In the late nineteenth century, and again in 1918, the Knights remained strong and active despite such situations. And together, we will do so again this time.

We know that this period will be difficult in various ways for everyone, and we want to assure you that the Knights of Columbus is fully committed to you and your family, and has taken the steps necessary to continue our important work on your behalf – from protecting the faith and financial stability of members’ families, to helping members put their faith into action by providing important charitable service within their communities.

Although to our knowledge, no staff at the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council or Museum in New Haven or at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C., have tested positive for COVID-19, we have implemented remote operations for most staff, allowing our business processes, customer service and fraternal support to continue their important work uninterrupted, while simultaneously protecting the health of our employees and reducing the risk of community spread of this illness, which is often facilitated by having large groups of people in close proximity to one another.

Furthermore, our sustainable investment strategy means that our exposure to current stock market volatility is limited, and we remain extremely strong financially. With that strength, and the strength that comes from committed employees, we remain positioned and ready to serve our brother Knights. Of course, our agents and our customer service team also remain available to help you with any insurance or related financial needs that you may have. As we implement new systems to serve you and respond to a higher volume of inquiries than usual during this period, it is possible that wait and turnaround times may increase.
In addition to what we are doing at the Supreme Council headquarters, many brother Knights have asked how they can help in their own communities. We suggest the following:

1. Pray. During this period, we urge every member and his family to pray the Supreme Council's novena based on the prayer of Pope Francis (printable or video prayer), as well as a prayer being promoted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
2. Help keep yourself, your families and your communities safe by cancelling all “in person” Knights of Columbus meetings and activities at the local or state level until otherwise indicated. This disease spreads when groups of people gather, so it is important that we avoid activities that could spread this illness. Councils should pursue online and/or teleconferencing options for meetings, fundraising, etc. until the danger has passed. The Supreme Council will be providing additional information on such options shortly.
3. Leave no Knight – or neighbor – behind. If members of your council – or community – are elderly or have underlying medical conditions, please ensure that they have enough food. If you or others in your council have food to spare, offer to drop something off on their doorstep or to shop online for them.
4. Give blood. Many communities are facing blood shortages. Those not being recommended to isolate themselves due to illness, age or underlying conditions should consider giving blood. National blood drives were pioneered by the Knights of Columbus in the 1930s, and this lifesaving activity remains an important aspect of our charitable work today.
As we move through this pandemic together, you can rest assured that the Knights of Columbus will be there for you. We will provide regular updates in the days ahead, and we will remain joined with you in prayer and in service to our neighbors in need.

May God bless you, and keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe.

Fraternally,

Carl Anderson
Supreme Knight

Thanks again to all who came out Saturday for our trivia night fundraiser. We had a great turnout and a great evening. We also thank the members and their wives for the help preparing and running it, especially Steven Brewen for getting the trivia questions together, the equipment, and doing the emcee work.

We have relucted to post about having our meeting tonight. But, it has now been decided that we will NOT have our regular monthly meeting tonight due to the weather and likely road conditions. Please pass the word to fellow knights so that no one is out on the slick roads tonight without reason. On a side note, we will create a Facebook event for our upcoming trivia night on 2/15 at the hall.

As many of you have heard, one of our brother Knights from Ste Genevieve passed away unexpectedly yesterday 1/15 morning. Ronnie Stuppy was a former District Deputy, but remained close to our council, active with his council in Ste Gen, and the 4th Degree as well. His visitation will be at Basler Funeral Home in Ste Gen on Friday-1/17 from 4pm until 8pm, and Saturday-1/18 from 8am to 915am. His funeral service will be at St. Lawrence Catholic Church on Sat-1/18 at 10am. A meal will be provided following his services at the Knights Hall in Ste Gen. Please pray for his family and for the repose of his soul.
