In an effort to support our continued ability to conduct in-person meetings, we will have complementary digital thermometer checks at the entrance of the DeMoor Room to ensure that we are taking precautions as recommended the CDC and California‘s Department of Health to reduce the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19.
Additionally, Bishop McElroy and the Catholic Diocese of San Diego and Fr. Devdas are encouraging all parishioners to wear a mask while indoors (even those fully vaccinated - as an act of charity). This is not mandatory, but offered out of respect and in support of our brothers and their family members who may be immunocompromised.
We will keep doors open and space chairs at least 3 ft apart during our future meetings as mitigating measures. If you are symptomatic, please stay home and rest. We will attempt to have a Zoom link available (depending on wifi reliability) and conduct a hybrid meeting to support those not able to attend, but I would rather risk not meeting a quorum than risking someone’s health!
Thank you for your understanding on this matter and I look forward to seeing you all at the general business meeting August 19, 2021@7:00 pm.
As a nonprofit charitable organization, the primary means of funding our operations are through the payment of annual dues. In a time of uncertainty on our ability to raise funds due to lingering COVID mitigation’s, honoring your commitment and paying your dues is more critical today more than it has ever been.
In accordance with council by-laws, members who are not current on their dues DO NOT have the right to attend council meetings OR vote on council issues.
This has been the standard for years, but has been loosely enforced. It is time to honor our commitment to the council and regain good standing by paying any outstanding balances.
Enforcement of this policy is effective immediately.
If you have had a financial hardship or illness that prevented you from having the ability to pay dues, please provide a short statement and justification to our Worthy Financial Secretary Gary Glenn for potential debt forgiveness, if qualified. FS Gary Glenn/s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
*Non current members will not be able to attend our upcoming business meeting. Members shall have membership cards with them at all future meetings.
Thank you for all that you do for the council and the community! Let’s get back on track and continue to make a difference!
A reminder to our council members to bring a current membership card to the business meeting for entry to the meeting.
If you cannot find your membership card or forget to bring it to the meeting, FS Gary Glann will have an up-to-date membership list to verify your paid and current membership.
Please be sure to come so you can help share the burden of in taking leadership in council fundraisers, planning events, being on committees to make our council grow in numbers, faith and strength.
Several fundraisers and events are in the works and need Brother Knights to step up and take charge and assist. Hope to see some Brother Knights step up and partner with others to grow as a leader and develop new skills.
It was proposed our council try to have a home made soap fundraiser in November and December. This was the 'major fundraiser' done last fall during the COVID shutdown. We sold 116 bars and made about $336.
All sales were made through non-face-to-face interactions. This made it difficult but we made it a success.
Before deciding how or if to conduct this fundraiser, your input is needed.
1. Would you purchased bars of homemade soap ($5 / bar)
2. If yes, how many bars MIGHT you purchase (the bar are 4 oz and make great gifts)
3. If a soap making class were offered (it would take about 3 hours) and included the following supplies: a mold (yours to keep) to make 6 bars of soap, the ingredients to make 6 bars of soap (the soap base, a variety of colors and scents), taught you where to purchase supplies locally or on-line, taught you two different methods of making melt and pour soap bars, an inexpensive method on how to wrap and label the bars of soap would you or someone you know (spouse, friend, relative, yourself) be interested?
4. The cost of materials would be about $17 and you would walk away with 6 bars of custom made soap bars for personal use or as gifts and a mold to make more bars of soap. Would you suggest a cost of $25, $30, $40, $50 or ??? make a suggestion.

for Business meeting in september -resubmission of using Rerserve funds to help finance the security fence for santa sophia church property
I move that we donate $25,000 from our Council reserve funds toward the construction of a security fence at the main entrance of Santa Sophia Parish. These funds are to be used only for the construction of a security fence at Santa Sophia. My motion includes the following requirements for distribution of the $25,000 to our parish during construction and completion of the security fence:
Guide for disbursement of Reserve Funds toward construction of a Santa Sophia security fence:
- 25% of the funds approved in the security fence motion shall be disbursed to the parish upon signing a contract with a builder, contractor to build the fence, all necessary permits secured, excavation started and fence construction materials on site.
- 25% of those same approved funds disbursed to the parish upon installation of the fence and operation of the gates in good working order.
- 50% final disbursement of funds upon completion of the project, contractor reports he is done with project, Father Devdas gives his approval and 2/3 of our Council Trustees approve of the finished project.
- If the security fence project has not been started, no contract signed, no excavation begun on site, within one year of the date the motion was approved by Council 9332, this motion to disburse reserve funds for construction of a security fence shall be null and void.
Below is a PDF file with a diagram and description of proposed fence, with dimension and specs. >

O God of all the Nations,
the One God who is and was and always will be, who in your providence willed that your Church be united to the suffering of your Son, look with mercy on your servants in Iraq who are persecuted for their faith in you.
Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations to work
for peace among all peoples.
May your Spirit open conversion for those who contradict
your will that we live in harmony.
And in all things may we be united in truth and freedom to seek your will in our lives.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
Our Lady, Queen of Peace,
Pray for us.
