Proposal from Brother Ralph Anzur (Nov.13th, 2014 Business Meeting)
General
General
Posted by Dr. David Caton on November 11th, 2014

Proposal for Sacred Vessel donation:

 Whereas St. Mark Parish will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2015,   I hereby propose that the Knights of Columbus Council 1498 memorialize this event with the purchase and presentation of an ornate Chalice and Paten for use by any and all priests affiliated with, or visiting, St. Mark in their celebration of the Holy Mass at the Parish.

 

This gift would be presentedto the Parish of St. Mark during the April 2015 anniversary celebration and havean engraved inscription denoting the gift from KofC 1498 to the Parish.

 Due to the fairly substantial outlay of Council monies being requested, all members of our Council 1498 should be given the opportunity to offset the total cost by making a personal donation to the fund.  The cost for the Chalice and Paten would range between $2,500 and $3000.

 I move that KofC Council 1498 create a Sacred Vessel fund for this purpose, and provide $1500 as seed money for the purchase.

Respectively submitted this 13th day of November, 2014

Ralph Anzur

Bylaws have been updated
Council
Council
Posted by Bernie Kuta on October 17th, 2013

On October 3, 2013 the council voted to modify our bylaws immediately.   Three items were changed. and have been submitted to Supreme and have been approved.  The revised bylaws will be published and posted on our website.

1.  Meetings updated :   Business Meetings will continue to be on the 1st Thursday of each month,    Planning Meetings are to be held on the 4th Thursday

2.   Member Dues have been increased to $50 per annum (previously was $36)   This amount will become effective for CY2014.    (The amount is substantiated as being the amount that is needed for paying Supreme and State assessments plus council operating expenses that should not be taken out of "donations" or "revenue" from charitable events.)

3.   The maximum amount that can be approved within the context of one meeting is now $250 (previously was $400).   (The discussion was about making it a practice for people asking or funds to be prepared a month in advance of the need.   Historically,  the council has often been asked for the $400 without much justification or reasoning simply because that was the limit.)

Member Mentoring

Membership
Posted by Bernie Kuta on August 29th, 2012

This year the council officers are embarking to mentor new (and inactive) members for Council 1498.    If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, please contact me.

Guidance is forthcoming, but generally a mentor will be tasked with taking a member under his wing and helping him become active and a blessing to the council.   Getting involved in program committees, events, and learning about the KofC Organization.   Proposers will also be asked to followup with new members to help them become integrated.
