On Tuesday, December 18, the SJN Family of Man Council joined together for an evening of fraternity and fellowship. Our Chef Bob Andres served an outstand dinner of braised Flemish Beef, mashed potatoes, and spinach. For dessert, we enjoyed Oatmeal Stout Ice Cream Floats.
After dinner, the Knights enjoyed the always popular "Yankee Swap" with Chaplain Heet leading the swap and our Grand Knight taking the last choice of the evening. There were many interesting, humorous, and thoughtful gifts exchanged and it was truly an enjoyable evening.
FoM Knights got together to watch the Army-Navy game on December 8, 2018. Thanks to all the brothers who turned out. We had a great time with pizza, brats, lots of great appetizers, and an interesting selection of craft brews. Many thanks to PGK Bill McInerney for his technical skill in operating the TV.
Our December Charity Breakfast is this Sunday, December 2, between the end of the 7:30 AM Mass and the start of the 11:30 AM Mass in the Brown-McCarthy Auditorium. Our charity this month is the Franciscan Works Liberia Mission. The Liberia Mission, began in 2003 after a terrible 13 year long civil war that totally wrecked the country. It is located in the West Africa country of Liberia. The Mission is a community of love, learning, work and prayer.
The Family of Man Council provided 72 winter coats for the student of Holy Name School in Camden New Jersey. Here are some pictures of the students receiving their Winter Coats. The Knights regularly collect donations at their social events to support charities such as Coats for Kids! You can see very grateful, warm, and stylish young students. Great work guys!
