January Letter from Faithful Navigator

January 30th, 2015 · Comments Off

This 2015 New Year’s message is for all the K of C Councils and Third Degree Knights!

Have you achieved the Patriotic Degree of the Knights of Columbus?

If not you can do so this year by contacting any Sir Knight and asking about a membership form.  Our next Exemplification is Saturday, March 7, 2015 at DeCarlo’s Banquet Center in Warren. Call me at 313-592-8510 or email me at redfordbob@aol.com so I can reserve a place for you.

As a member you will have the privilege of wearing the fourth degree pin which is very meaningful.

Please allow me give you the meaning of this emblem.

The emblem symbols:
Fourth Degree features the dove, the cross and the globe.

The dove, classic symbol of the Holy Spirit and peace,
is shown hovering over the orb of the Earth (globe).

Both are mounted on a variation of the Crusader’s cross,
which was found on the tunics and capes of the Crusading knights.

Spiritually, the sacred symbols on the emblem typify the union
of the Three Divine Persons in one Godhead, the most Blessed Trinity.

  • The Globe – God the Father, Creator of the Universe.
  • The Cross – God the Son, Redeemer of Mankind.
  • The Dove – God the Holy Spirit, Sanctifier of Humanity.

The colors of the symbols are:

  • A blue globe with the land of the Western Hemisphere in white.
  • A red cross with gold borders and gold knobs at the end of the points forming the ends of the arms of the cross, also known as the Isabella cross.
  • A white dove.

Red, white and blue are the colors of the flag of the country in which the Knights originated.

They are used to stress patriotism, the basic principle of the Fourth Degree.

Please join us in 2015!

S.K. Bob Bielenda

November Letter From Faithful Navigator

November 7th, 2014 · Comments Off

Vivat Jesus !

Sir Knights! The month of October is behind us and also behind us is my first meeting as your Faithful Navigator. I have expressed my goals that I would like to attain. . First and foremost I would like to know everyone on a one to one basis.  I hope to increase our membership by 20% or better and will be seeking members not only from Holy Cross Council but from our councils under our jurisdiction, but above all I wish to reinstatement members. At the meeting we voted to donate $100.00 to the Desert Angels for shipping “Miracle Boxes” to our service men and women. Also when proper information is received we will sponsor a seminarian and support other charitable projects

We will be sending five Sir Knights and two Ladies to the Fall Harvest District #1 meeting on November 2, 2014. They are Sir Knights Bob Bielenda, Caz Rozmarniewicz, Jamie Kuhlman and Lady and Sir Knight Walter Glinka and Lady and Sir Knight David Vincent.

I appreciate all the comments from the survey that was mailed out. Believe me they were all for the better and it shows you are concerned and enthusiastic about our assembly. Responses came from Sir Knights who live out of state as well as those from other councils. I cannot understand the reason for some not responding with a paid postage envelope enclosed. I will have the statistics for you in a personal Christmas letter which I will send out in December.

As we approach the month of November we think about Thanksgiving Day, football, turkey and family. However, November has a special meaning for the Fourth Degree. We Sir Knights have gone through the degrees of Charity, Unity and Fraternalism and now we possess the highest degree the Knights of Columbus can offer, the fourth degree!  The degree of Patriotism!

November is the time we give “Thanks” to our veterans on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2014.  Sir Knights we have many fourth degree Knights who have served our country with honor and we should be proud that they are member of Holy Cross Assembly #1622. Keep in mind that anyone who has done military service for our country earns the privilege to be called “Veteran”.

In a poem by Joanna Fuchs she states:

We salute every one of them,
the noble and the brave,
the ones still with us here today,
and those who rest in a grave.

So here’s to our country’s heroes;
they’re a cut above the rest;
let’s give the honor that is due
to our countries very best.

Sir Knight Bob Bielenda F.N.

2014 Annual Holiday Food Drive

November 7th, 2014 · Comments Off

It’s now time for all Brother Knights to roll up your sleeves and help out during our 3rd annual Holiday Food Drive for needy families of our area. In 2012 we were able to reach out and supply for twenty needy families. Last year, that number went to sixty-five and for this year, I’m hoping that the total can be near one hundred, if not over!

You can start dropping off any nonperishable items at the council. You can also make a monetary donation, if you so choose. There was a donation envelope enclosed for your convenience with the Cross Newsletter mailing this week. Either will be appreciated.

We are also lining up local businesses to help in our cause. Last year, Gordon Foods in Dearborn Heights was our largest contributor. If you know of any business which is willing, please invite them to make a donation too.

And lastly, if you know of a family that may be in need, please let me know.

Sincerely,
Jimmy Szott, G.K.
