From our New Financial Agent, PGK Andrew Godbout As a member of the Knights of Columbus since 2011, I enjoyed serving my home council (3478) as a Recorder, Chancellor, Deputy Grand Knight and eventually 3 years as Grand Knight. Since 2017 I have serviced the Metro- Vancouver area as a Knights of Columbus Field I am at your service; please do not hesitate in giving me a call or email if you have any questions or concerns at 604-819-7974 or andrew.godbout@kofc.org. Thank you and God bless” Agent and I am excited to now be able to return to the Fraser Valley and serve as your Field Agent, building relationships with people in the communities that I call home. As a result of the current need for social distancing, my plan is to reach out to the membership via email and meet by phone or over video/voice call to field any questions the membership may have.
WE WALK FOR PRO-LIFE
A LITTLE RAIN DIDN’T DAMPEN THE DETERMINATION OF CHILLIWACK KNIGHTS TO GET THE WORD OUT AT THE 40TH ANNUAL WALK FOR LIFE LAST MONTH. RAISED $500 TOO!
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! Once again a strong show of support from Brother Knights and Parishioners for the 40th Annual Walk for Life. Between cash, cheques and online donations, we turned over $500 to continue the great works of Chiliwack Pro-Life. I’m sure our numbers would have been larger if we didn’t have to contend with a pandemic, but we walked comforted by the prayers and well-wishes of those who (understandably) couldn’t journey with us this year. Walk For Life Chair Peter Lindenhoff
