 Brother Knights,

First, I want to address the Pads Program.  A number of years ago, our Council made a commitment  to support this valuable/needed endeavor.  We seem to have reached a low point in the human support of time to assist with PADS.  This Program falls well within the purview of categories of ministry within the Knights.  Our Council provides service hours on the 3rd Tuesday/Wednesday.  Some Council Members work the dinner shift (6;00ish-to about 10:00 p.m.), along with parishioners from IJP.

The other shift that we handle is the morning breakfast shift.  This may be one of those "there but for the grace of God go I! I have been doing it for a few years, so here is how it works for me.  On Tuesday of the Program, I make sure I get to bed sometime between 6:00-7:00 p.m., so I'm sure I get adequate sleep.  I get up 1:30-1:45 a.m., put on some coffee, shower, get ready while enjoying some stronger coffee than usual, and get to IJP no later than 2:45 a.m.  When we get there , we just make sure everything is ok for about an hour and a half,,,bring the coffee pot into the kitchen, clean it up, and get it ready to bring out later.  About 4:00 a.m., begin getting breakfast ready, and be done at, or before 7:00 a.m.  I stop somewhere for more coffee, go to work for the day, and attend the Assembly Officer's Meeting at 7:00 p.m., go home and get a good night's sleep for work the next day.  So there it is.   If we get several Knights to participate, you may only need to work 1 or 2 shifts per year.  I remember in the last century, in grade school, when you were told to do something you didn't want to, some Nun would tell me to"offer it up", so that's what I do.  I won't ask a Brother Knight to do something I would'nt do myself.  the next PADS for us will be Tues/Wed Jan. 21/22.  Let me know if you would like to be one of the "crew".

Now for the Major Degree.  Due to a number of complications and communication difficulties, we  will not be hosting a Major Degree on January 19, 2020.  I have been looking at schedules, and found that St. Anthony Council #9770, Frankfort has scheduled a Major Degree for Friday, January 31, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.  We have done this before.  They originally requested a Degree Team (Skippy's), and was shown this to be on the state list.  The Grand Knight, however, has not yet heard anything from the State regarding confirmation.  I will be attending their Council tomorrow night to see if there has been any news, and participate in some discussion about the matter.  I will report back to the Council regarding the status of the Major Degree.  We will make sure that those of you who want to move up to the 3rd Degree will be able to achieve that goal.  Thank You, and enjoy your evening.

Vivat Jesus
