Faith in Action – C#9534 – Men’s Conference

An all day conference was hosted by Council #9543, Saturday June 8th, 2019, at St. Matthews Parish, Surrey, BC. This conference was led by Deacon Ralph Poyo, Ohio, USA. The conference was well organized, with online registration, that had a very easy flow experience. The program began with Mass, and a homily by Deacon Ralph that gave the men a good preview of what to expect during the rest of the Day.  

Media material calling Catholic Men to answer the call “through Him we Conquer” – “be not afraid”

Deacon Ralph Leading the talks of ‘approaching the battle’, ‘vanquishing the enemy within’, ‘fighting with great stregth’ and ‘continuing to bind as brothers’.

The group pic, almost 100 attended! A powerful day indeed!

Faith in Action – Baby Rosalie update …

Many of you will remember the email we sent out nearly four months ago requesting financial help for the Galitsky family and their baby, Rosalie. While some may not have been able to donate, I know we were able to rely on your prayers. I am happy to forward to you, the following update on the status of Rosalie and her family and would like to add to the letter my sincerest appreciation for your generous care, prayers and donations that brought almost $3500.00 to the family to assist with their expenses.

~ Dan O’Hara,  PSD ~

To the members of the Knights of Columbus,

We are so incredibly grateful for all of your prayers and the gracious charity you provided for our family during Rosalie’s difficult birth and early weeks. We would like to offer an update on her well-being and growth to all concerned. She is now almost four months old (about 16 weeks), and 9 pounds, which is right where she should be for her adjusted age of 7 weeks! She has tripled her birth weight and is showing steady growth and development. She is such a pleasure to have at home; we especially love the happy smiles she shares with her older sister!

Our family’s time spent with Rosalie in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was a deep challenge, as any family of a sick child will tell you. With that being said, the kindness, generosity and support offered to us by strangers has made all of you an unforgettable part of our heart, and eased this difficult journey so much. Each financial donation meant a burden off our shoulders, and meant that Rosalie’s father could spend more time bonding with his new daughter, supporting his wife, and providing stability for our three year old during all of the upheaval. We cannot thank the Knights of Columbus members enough; our gratitude for your support goes deeper than words. Rosalie is a blessing in our lives, and so are all of you. Thank you with all of our hearts.

With gratitude and love,
Devon, Vitaly, Chiara, and, of course, Rosalie.

Faith in Action – C#5423 – Burnaby – June 1, 2019

On Saturday June 1, the Knights of Columbus of Holy Cross Parish will march or ride in Burnaby’s Superheroes-themed Hats Off Day Parade 2019 with “The Triumph of the Cross Over Sin and Death”, a float of their own
design and construction.

At last year’s event, themed “Pirates and Sailors”, this same group’s “Santa Maria” entry won the “Best in Parade” trophy out of 50 participants. Since 2005, Hats Off Day has been consistently voted Burnaby’s most popular festival, filling the Burnaby Heights stretch of Hastings Street with merrymakers from near and far.

Knights of Holy Cross Council 5423 and Msgr Carey Assembly 2726, and all other Councils and Assemblies, both in Colour Guard or informal dress, are invited to gather by 9:20 am at Parade Position #15 on Hastings at Gamma near Willingdon; the parade will start soon after, and finish at Boundary Road. Seniors and others may ride in chairs on the spacious flatbed trailer-float, accessible by ramp; Knights families may also join. Props and garb illustrating various Knights projects and activities will be provided, or bring your own. Parking will be available on surrounding residential streets as first-come first-served (please obey all street signs). Participation or viewing are free.

The Knights of Columbus is an international organization of Catholic men in service to church and community; Council 5423 is based at Holy Cross Parish in northwest Burnaby: http://holycross.rcav.org/parish-groups/knights-of-columbus/. We also thank Kia West and the staff and students of Holy Cross Elementary School for helping to make this project possible.
