Greetings Brothers and Happy
This year we celebrate our Savior’s
resurrection on Easter Sunday the April 12th. Let us all remember that; “Jesus was put to
death for our trespasses and raised for our justification” Romans 4:25.
On March 7th we lost an important Brother
Knight to our Council. Brother Vincent O’Shea was Father Bonner’s Charter Grand
Knight when it was formed in 1980. Brother Vince held several positions
including State Program Director as well as State Advocate, but the event that
I will always remember him for will be the Walk Run and Roll for Spinal Cord
Society. Vince will be deeply missed within Our Council. Let us all remember
that “Charity Begins at Home” and offer our assistance to Joan and Brother
Vince’s family in their time of sorrow.
Welcome Brother Sajeev Andrews who became a new Knight on
March 25th, when our Council held a 1st Degree in the
Parish hall. Our Worthy State Deputy Wally will be bringing Sajeev to our next
Council meeting, let us all introduce ourselves and show him our support. Our
Council still requires new members to meet our Council goal, I encourage you to
ask a Practical Catholic Gentleman to join our great order.
Congratulations to Bro. Paolo Festa-Bianchet and Bro. Vaughan Achebe who received the Honours of
the 2nd & 3rd Degree on March 14th. For
those Brother Knights who have not received the honours of the 2nd
& 3rd Degree, there will be another opportunity on Saturday May
the 7th at St. Joe’s High school. For more information or to
register contact Bro. Paolo (780-433-7282 or Paolo.Festa-Bianchet@doccio.com.)
Congratulations to the State Curling Committee on a job
well done. The Bonspiel that we hosted at the Saville Sports Centre on the
weekend of March 14th was a hugh success! The overall consensus was
that our Council provided an excellent State event. Thank you to the Volunteers
and the Three Father Bonner Teams that participated.
On April 10th the 29th Annual “Outdoor Way
of the Cross” will take place on Good Friday April 10th from 10:00am

Hall (9515-104 Ave.) For more information contact Linda at 780-466-6327.

Life will take place in our City. The day will start off with a Pro-Life mass

the mass at St. Joseph’s Basilica. The rally will start at 1:00pm with the
march commencing at 1:30 from the Legislature through downtown returning back
to the Legislature for some speeches. We as Knights and Catholic Gentlemen need
to show our support and “Defend Life.” For more information contact Bro. Dave Wehage (780-463-9085 or email@example.com,) or
