UPCOMING COUNCIL EVENTS
OCTOBER BIRTHDAY LIST
October marks the end of hurricane season and the beginning of the Christmas season - only xx shopping days left!
The short list to the right of Brothers with birthdays in October offers you the opportunity to give them a phone call, mail them a birthday card, send an e-card, or just plain say something nice to them.
We celebrate with both our oldest member, Joe MacDonald, and two of our youngest members, Ricky and Eric Hernandez. Stay home. Stay safe, celebrate responsibly, preferably over social media with family and friends. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BROTHERS!
OCTOBER IS RESPECT LIFE MONTH
To honor our commitment to life, Council 7121 has pledged $2500 to the District 16 effort to purchase a new ultrasound machine for the St. Gerard Campus Pregnancy Center.
The Supreme Council Ultrasound Initiative has placed over 1100 sonogram machines in pro-life pregnancy centers since 2009. Knights of Columbus Charities Inc will contribute half the $30,000 cost after $15,000 is raised locally.
Donations will be accepted in the St. Anastasia narthex at all Masses on the weekends of Oct 17-18, Oct 24-25, and Oct 31.

BLESSED FATHER MICHAEL J. McGIVNEY BEATIFICATION
Father McGivney’s beatification Mass will take place on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford, Connecticut. At that liturgical celebration, an apostolic letter from the Holy Father will be read along with the bestowing of the title “Blessed” on Father McGivney. This is the step just prior to sainthood. An additional miracle attributed to Father McGivney’s intercession will be required for his canonization as a saint.
A special Mass will also be held at St. Anastasia at 9 am on Saturday, Oct. 31, to celebrate the beatification.
