Grand Knight’s Corner

Welcome to the Good Shepherd Knight’s of Columbus website.  Here you will see messages from me and past Grand Knights.

  • Thank You
    Thank you to all the Knights that helped out at the Craft Fair this past weekend. I appreciate the effort to help set up, put away and sell raffle tickets. The Craft Fair raised over $15,000 for the church thanks to the many volunteers under the leadership of Ann Hernandez. Well done! Gratefully,Ray KleppanGrand Knight
  • Knights In Need
    If anyone knows of a Knight or parishioner of Good Shepherd who was adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, please contact the new Grand Knight, Ray Kleppan, at roandray@gmail.com. The Good Shepherd Council is here to help. We Knights are challenged to take this moment as an opportunity to “deepen our commitment to the very principles which define us: charity, […]
  • August 2015 Grand Knight Message
    My Brother Knights, I would like to invite all brother knights to attend our business meetings on the third Thursday of the month. Your involvement will enable the council to preform greater charity acts and meet with old and new friends. At our business meeting in September we are having the installation of officers. We plan to be a part […]
  • July 2015 Grand Knight Message
    My Brother Knights, We received an email from Tom Borruso saying he received unexpected news from his lung surgeon – the PET scan he took shows cancer in his back (lung area), liver and pelvis. The oncologist is setting him up for radiology treatment for one of the three and in three weeks they will get together to discuss treatment […]
  • June 2015 Grand Knight Message
    Since this is one of the last heralds of the year I wanted to personally thank a few of our brothers who went out of their way to help the council and me this year. John Leonardo for keeping me going and providing anything I needed many times before I even realized I needed it. Tom Haberkorn for handling the […]
  • December 2014 Grand Knight’s Message
    Brothers, I am happy to say that the decision made at our last business meeting was to fight to keep the council going. At that meeting I presented a plan with some ideas on how we can save the council. The first area I think we need to focus on is improving our financials. We are already off to a […]
  • October 2014 Grand Knight’s Message
    Once again it is time to install our council officers, and it is also the perfect time to talk about volunteering.  Every organization out there is hurting for volunteers. People just don’t seem to have the time to volunteer anymore. With our council we have a lot of people who are willing to help work an event, but it is […]
  • May 2014 Grand Knight’s Message
    My Brother Knights, I have been busy working out our schedule for the upcoming year.  I was hoping to have it in this Herald this month but I can’t confirm the dates with the church yet.  Once I do I will send out a special email to all of the members and I will post it on our website.  Once […]
  • April 2014 Grand Knight’s Message
    Membership, membership, membership without it we can’t do our wonderful works and have a healthy successful council. While at the same time it is time consuming and hard work to recruit new members. Growing our numbers had been my focus for this year and I believe all of our efforts have really paid off. This is in no small part […]
  • A Message from our new Grand Knight
    My Brother Knights, Our council is at a crossroads; through the hard work and effort of our active members we have gained a very favorable reputation in the parish. On top of that the Church of the Good Shepherd has a new pastor and all indications are that he is willing to support the role of Knights of Columbus in […]

If you can’t march please come out and enjoy the parade. Please wear your K of C shirt and/or jacket if possible, if you are planning […]
  • April 2013 Grand Knight’s Message
    My Brother Knights, I want to congratulate Brother Jerry Benedict and his wonderful group of volunteers for completing their 11th year of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Gang. Their dedicated service to our community is truly inspirational. Last year alone they made and delivered over 9,000 sandwiches and 3,000 wash up kits for those in need. On April 19, we will […]
