Fr Bill Elser June Knight of the Month
The Knight of the Month is Fr. Bill Elser. Our Council has nine official Church functions each year, and several other Culture of Life, Council, Youth, and Community activities, plus over a dozen other parish-life activities that are faith-based initiatives for growing the domestic church. The next event is the affirmation of wedding vows on Father’s Day, 18 June, where we’ll all have the blessed opportunity to reflecton our marital commitments with his blessings. Events such as the Running of the Silver Rose, Mother’s Day appreciation, Founder’s Day honoring the venerable Fr. McGivney, our Memorial Mass and Dinner for departed Brothers and their faithful widows, the Seminarian Support Dinner, and events such as the Rosary in the Public Square, the March for Life, participating in Special Olympics, and so many more Knight sponsored events are made possible, successful, and totally supported by our Worthy Chaplain. Even renting this hall for our events is made possible by Fr. Bill’s support. Initiatives such as the Feast before the Fast, supporting “Into the Breach” discussion opportunities for Catholic gentlemen, providing reflections at all Council Meetings, attending the state and national conventions as our State Chaplain and debriefing us, enabling and encouraging our participation in Knight’s funerals with honorary condolences, and most importantly, providin spiritual guidance to meet our individual and collective needs must not go unheralded and deserve our sincere appreciation with a debt of gratitude.
