September 12
Regular business meeting 7:30 pm (Old CCE Building).   Be sure to be there to discuss…

October 1
October 1 is Respect Life Sunday.  On this day Life Chains will be held in hundreds of cities nationwide.  In Richmond/Rosenberg the Life Chain extends between Kroger’s parking lot and Planned Parenthood on Avenue H and is held from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
The Life Chain is a legal, peaceful, prayerful public witness against the killing of unborn children.  Its purpose is to provide a visual statement of solidarity by our local Christian community that abortion is grievously wrong and that the church Christ founded is opposed to the unmerciful killing of pre-born children. 

This is one way the Knights of Columbus can show their commitment to Pro–Life. Please join us on Sunday, October 1, 2000.

Ray Ireland, Pro Life Director (281) 238-0996.

Dear Brother Knights in Christ,

Our 2000-2001 Fraternal year is off and running! We have had our first regular business meeting and a family outing to Enron Field to watch a baseball game and it was fantastic! Thanks to Rick Bilski for his perfect organization of this event! Also, thanks to Brian Meyer for handling the refreshments. He had something for everyone!

Come to our regular business meeting, September 12 and hear and see [pictures] of it all!

We have all our elected officers but are still in need of a Lecturer, a Program Director, a Community Director and a Youth Director.  All of these positions are very important. Please prayerfully consider one of these responsibilities. Let’s talk about it and/or call me at work 281-871-5944 daytime from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. or at home 979-793-KOFC(5632). As Ron Gay, our immediate Past State Deputy, said, "If you are not having fun, you are not doing it right." Billy Quintanilla, our new State Deputy, says, "You have not seen our best year yet!"

 I would like to thank those who helped with our membership drive during Parish Ministry Days: Leroy Vacek and Immediate Past Grand Knight Mike Cutbirth from our council. Also, thanks to Fourth Degree Sir Knights Joe Garza, Ron Hallas and Jeff Sposato from Msgr. J.J. Tydladka Assembly. Your efforts were much appreciated.

Your Brother in Christ,
Dan Polczynski, Grand Knight

The Knights of Columbus celebrated Family Week by enjoying a Chartered Bus Trip to see the Houston Astros play at Enron Field in Houston on Sunday, August 20th for a afternoon matchup against Division rival Milwaukee Brewers.

This Astros lost the game in the last inning 6-5, however, it was a close game which could have gone either way. Enron Field displays a fan friendly atmosphere and is certainly different from past KC Family Week outings at The Astrodome. Although the Astros added another loss to their 2000 campaign, the real winners were the participants who attended the KC Family activity. Anytime we Knights have the chance to gather with  our family and friends and enjoy in fellowship it allows us the opportunity to reflect on  how blessed we actually are.   We sold 60 tickets to the game and  had to upgrade to a larger capacity bus this year.
