                                 Message from Your Servant Grand Knight

Brother Knights,


During lent, we always look for ways to sacrifice, change, and serve. Well, consider being more involved with the Knights.  Everything we do, as Knights, provides for charities, help for our own & others, and help for those in need.   If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:15-17   Come to a meeting, volunteer for a committee, or even become an officer.


Let’s aim for this Lenten season to be more than a little smudge of ashes on our forehead, more than maybe giving up sweets, or smoking, or drinking for Lent.  Each Friday from February 16 the March 23rd, we will be preparing and serving Fish Fry meals for our parish and anyone else.  This year, we are planning to add some variety to the usual meal.  There is a place and duty for everyone who comes to help. Join us. Also, bring your family, friends, neighbors, and enemies to have a delicious meal prepared by you, the Knights.


Through fasting and alms giving, through penance and reconciliation, through acts of loving service to those in need, and prayer, let us put our faith into action and live the life of an active Knight, walking in the footsteps of the Master, who invites us to “Deny yourself, take up your cross daily, and follow me.”

Have a blessed, uplifting, and happy Lent.


May God’s Grace fill your life,


SK Manuel (Manny) Trevino, Jr.

Grand Knight, Ralph Cerny Council #12553
