Message from the Grand Knight

I want to take a moment to share a few thoughts about our low attendance at Mass during the pandemic. Regardless of current events, attending Mass is a very personal choice, Lord knows I have had my ups and downs over the years. If you have not attended Mass since it reopened a few months ago, please know the Parish has done a superb job of sanitizing, adjusting the seating and the flow of movement so everyone is 6'. Most wore masks before the mandate and everyone is very respectful of the protocols

You may have heard in the news reports that rank activities by risk, going to Church is often included in the riskier categories. But the devil is in the details. If you dig into the basis for the ranking, you will find they are talking about services with 500 or more people

The anxiety we are experiencing today is similar in many ways to what was going on 60 years ago during the cold war and nuclear arms race. It is the worries of not knowing what will happen next, having little control and it is affecting everyone worldwide. In the midst of all that was happening back then, JFK gave his famous speech, "ask not what your country can do for you, but rather, what can you do for your country? ". Perhaps today, we could take away from that and say  "ask not what Jesus can do for you, but rather, what can we do for Jesus ?" Even if attending Mass is not the right thing for someone right now, we can still let others know our Parish is providing a safe as possible environment for Mass and Jesus is there for us wherever we are and wherever we go. Being a messenger for God is at the heart of being a Knight

May God Bless you and your family, Dave Bruck
