KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
BISHOP CLAUDE DUBUIS COUNCIL #7445
Sacred Heart Parish Richmond, Texas April 2000
Seek the Lord while He may be found, call Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6
Dear Brothers and Families,
How's your Lent going? How many of you are taking notes during the homilies? Do you remember Frank Denton and J316 and J317?
We will be electing alternates and a 2nd delegate for the upcoming State Convention in Corpus Christi May 5-7 at our April meeting. Anyone interested in going should attend. A new slate of State officers will be elected which always makes for an interesting convention.
I close with a Little Toddler Humor...Property Laws of a Toddler:
1. If I like it, it's mine.
2. If it's in my hand, it's mine.
3. If I can take it from you, it's mine.
4. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
5. If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.
6. If I'm doing or building something, all of the pieces are mine.
7. If it looks like mine, it's mine.
8. If I saw it first, it's mine.
9. If you're playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.
10. If it's broken, it's yours.
May the Lord continue to bless you and yours with a deeper sense of His love and presence.
Live life to the fullest,
Michael P. Cutbirth

Officers’ and Directors’ Meeting
The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. Mike Cutbirth, Grand Knight, thanked the prior Grand Knights that were in attendance. He asked about the Lenten meals that were served in the past. These have been discontinued due to lack of interest.
The trustee’s reported that they completed the semi-annual Report on February 15, 2000. Everything was satisfactory and the report has been sent to Supreme.
The State Convention will be held in May. We will need two alternate delegates.
The April Corporate Communion will be the last Sunday in April.
Mike Speich reported that there was no response from Life Teen on the volleyball or basketball games. In addition the Life Teen Golf Tournament is in need of sponsors. The Easter Letter for the First Communicants is due before Easter.
Merit Fund Donation for High School Graduates in the past years has been $300 in scholarship award. It will be needed by March 24. A motion was made, seconded and passed that the money should be allocated for the scholarship
The Council donated $60 to the Bishop’s Donation Fund.

PROGRAM DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE
Brother Knights, we are rapidly approaching the end of our year. Next month, we will form an election committee. Many positions need to be filled with individuals like you. The work isn’t hard.
If you are interested in holding an office make it known to the election committee. This year we have tried to identify those areas where you will not have to go it by yourself. We have regularly scheduled events throughout the year. We want to get them filled first then work on those things that "pop" up.
One of my goals has been to get the programs running smoothly without undo effort on the part of the chairman or the Grand Knight. I ask that you volunteer for at least one project. Most projects do not require a lot of time. For example: BBQ Teams work 3 or 4 Sundays a year. Other projects are once a year. Volunteer now and get the one you want.
I want to thank all those who have stepped up to the volunteer plate and assisted those who needed it.
We have changed the Car Maintenance Day to June
17,2000 and the Elderly Assistance Project to April 29, 2000.
FIRST COMMUNION IN MAY
Lent is half over. Have you offered up something special during Lent for the First Communicant for whom you are praying? Easter will be here in three weeks. Please give your First Communicant child a very special Easter card. You should have had a reminder phone call by the time you read this newsletter. Thank you for your prayers, and keep praying. If you have any questions please phone John at 341-0777, Leroy at 342-5390, Rick at 342-7895 or Paul at 342-9096.
Paul Metcalf and his team (Rick Bilski, John Healey, and Leroy Vacek) have done a fantastic job of establishing the initial contact between the First Communicants and their sponsor Knights. Let’s keep our support for the First Communicants active and ongoing as they continue to prepare for their May First Communion.
The two activities (volleyball and basketball)
with the Life Teen group are on hold. As plans are made Mike Speich
will let you know the details.
