My Brother Knights
  I hope you and your families are doing well in this challenging time of great uncertainty. Please stay safe and practice social distancing whenever possible so we can eventually flatten the curve. As previously stated, all Council events and meetings have been either cancelled or postponed to a later date. Please keep all the Doctors, Nurses, Police Officers, Firefighters, First Responders and all civilians, who have become sick, in your Prayers.

As you all know, our Council went paperless on March 1st, 2020 so you now get the Newsletter via Email. This will be the last time I bring it up so if you know somebody who isn't getting the Newsletter please have them Email their Name, Email Address and Phone # to: 3481kofc@gmail.com.

As your Worthy Grand Knight, I would like to bring you up to speed on how the KofC Council #3481 in Oceanside has been getting involved to help first responders in our community. GK Darab Kevin Lawyer, PGK Kevin Grasing and Financial Secretary Ted Kornobis, as well as all my officers and board members, have been working closely with hospitals, firefighters, EMT, police officers and St. Anthony's Parish clergy to help provide them with meals. The following post appeared on today's Oceanside Library Page thanking Our Council for a monetary donation. "The Knights of Columbus have donated $1000 to help send us meals to the courageous staff at Mount Sinai South Nassau and our first responders. Thank you KofC.... always there for our community!!!"

Vivat jesus! God bless,

SK Darab Kevin Lawyer, Grand Knight.
