NEWS - August eBulletin FINALLY Posted! (Posted 08/10)

CLICK IMAGE for BulletinAt long last, the August eBulletin is now posted and available here on the website.  As many of you know, I spend most of the Spring, Fall and Summer at our second home in the St Louis area to be closer to our granddaughter and her family.

This adds a few logistics issues to my role of web and Bulletin editor, most notably, I need to remotely access my home computer to make all the magic happen.  For the first time ever, I totally lost my remote access and it took over a week to get it resolved from long distance

I apologize for this long delay but it also provides an opportunity for me to again request help in this largely solo effort. 

I would very much appreciate anyone with technical skills (Excel, jpeg/pdf image manipulation, network IT support) to help when these kind of issues arise.

Thank you all for your patience and I look forward to volunteers to step forward to help avoid a repeat of the worst case scenario situation I experienced this month.

Vivat Jesus,

Dan Koskovich
KofC Council 3744 Bulletin and Website Editor

NEWS - March Meeting Features Seminarian Presentation (Posted 03/15)

The monthly member meeting was held on Tue Mar 14 at the Council Hall with the busy schedule of Lent activities discussed. 

The social gathering before the meeting featured a traditional "St Patrick's Day"-worthy corn beef dinner deliciously prepared by Lecturer Paul Callinan.

A highlight of the meeting was the presentation of a vocation support check by Grand Knight Alex Flores to this year's Council sponsored seminarian Braxton Cordova.

Braxton is a junior at Cal Sate Dominguez Hills who resides at Juan Diego House.  Braxton is currently in the discernment process advancing towards his seminary studies.  At the meeting, he provided members an update on his progress and thanked the Council for supporting him again this year.

Please keep Braxton and all our local seminarians in your prayers as they make the journey to priesthood.

CALL OUT - St Margaret's Center Volunteers Needed (Posted 07/26)

Council 3744 has long supported St Margaret's Center in Lennox with a regular crew of Brother Knights doing food pickups each week at local Ralphs, Vons, Food4Less and Target stores as well as helping with sorting donations, shelf stocking and food distribution to clients during the regular Mon/Wed/Fri pantry client servicing hours.

A new large store has offered us their food donations and we are in great need of a few more volunteers to help with pickups, sorting and stocking these donations. 

Won't you consider joining the fun crew of Brother Knights and others in service to our local poor?  As little as 4 hours a week can make a huge difference for local families in need.

While St Margaret's project chairman Chip Mallek is on the mend, please feel free to contact Dan Koskovich at dkoskovich@gmail.com or 310-968-0516 for more info or to volunteer to help!
