Phoenix Diocese Priest Appreciation Dinner - April 12


It is only 5
weeks until the Phoenix Diocese Priest Appreciation Dinner. and we have heard from very few Knights who plan to attend.  It would be terrible if our Priest showed up and there was not a good solid number of Knights to greet them.

Please make your reservations ASAP.  Remember there are no walk-ups, all reservations must be made in advance.

I have attached an informational letter to this email.  Be sure your Council and Assembly are represented at this event.  Also be sure and encourage as many Knights as possible to sponsor a priests dinner, even if they do not plan to attend themselves.

Thank you for your consideration.

Vivat Jesus!

Law and Honor Dinner - May 10 - Carefree

The Law and Honor Dinner hosted by Assembly 2833 on May 10.


Concert to Benefit Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

The Chief Judge John M. Roll Chapter of the Knights of Columbus is sponsoring a piano concert featuring accomplished concert pianist William Gilman for the benefit of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration at St Augustine Cathedral on February 23, 2013.

This is the first of a series of annual concerts planned by the Tucson Knights of Columbus to benefit charitable causes in southern Arizona. It is an opportunity for interested donors together with Knights and their families, music lovers and fans of the Benedictine Sisters to listen to selections from the music of Franz Lizst and Fredric Chopin by Sir Knight William (Bill) Gilman our distinguished classical pianist.

Sir Knight Gilman is a Tucson winter guest and member of the Knights of Columbus who has graciously donated his talent, time and effort to the planning of this effort over the last two years. As a student of the life and 19th century music of Franciscan monk Franz Liszt, Mr. Gilman will tell us this famous catholic musician’s zest for life, his failings, and quest for God.

William Gilman studied music at the Cornish School of Allied Arts in Seattle, Washington and graduated with a degree in music at Centralia College.  He went on to The Evergreen State College to earn a degree in Computer Science and Labor Studies.  After retiring in 2001 from the State of Washington, he earned his Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies at Seattle University and became a Catholic Chaplain working in the Washington State prisons and a hospital Chaplain in Olympia. While in the US Army, he worked on several musicals with the USO in Germany.

St Augustine Cathedral provides a unique venue for this presentation of classical piano and the opportunity to meet and share views and ideas with invited dignitaries, our hierarchy of officers and clergy in an informal reception following the performance. The address for the Cathedral is 192 S. Stone Avenue, Tucson AZ 85701.

The concert presentation begins at 7 PM with one intermission and ends at 9 PM. Seating is open. Ticket donations are $15.00 per person on a first-come-first-serve basis and limited to 1500 seats.

Tickets are available for cash or check from  Ken Gallagher at sk.keng@cox.net  (520) 661-1262.

For your convenience you may also purchase tickets using your personal credit card or PayPal account at the Chapter’s web site www.tucsonknights.com.

All proceeds will be donated to The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Please support our work for the Benedictine Monastery.
