Welcome to

The Knights of Columbus

Council 1652



A message from the Grand Knight


     The Fall session of our Fraternal year is well under way. Please review and mark your calendars and try to attend some of the events outlined in the calendar.

     If you haven’t participated in the Living Rosary sessions held every Tuesday in October you might want to give yourself a treat. A lot of Brothers grew up saying the Rosary at home, most times under duress, but now that you make your own choices you may find it soothing to your soul even if you only try it once. Thanks to Mike Britto for leading us in prayer.

     Remember that our next Council meeting is on October 3rd because of the Thanksgiving holiday the following Monday.

     Brother Stan Steves is planning a big celebration for Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 22nd at the Hall. It starts at 7:00 p.m. If you have a hunger for Oktoberfest sausage, pork schnitzel, German potato salad, franks & beans and good entertainment then you should not miss this event.

Supplying coats for needy children has always been a mandate for the Knights in their efforts to serve the community. This year our council will purchase 2 boxes of coats. This effort will be matched by Eddie Wright who has found money made from the Cruise Nights. A total of 82 coats will be supplied to children in Niagara Falls who are in need this winter! Thanks Eddie and Grahame Abbott –our new Community Director- for spearheading this project!

Please pray for our Brothers that are in distress that God will keep them safe and comfortable.

Enjoy this beautiful time of year.  

Vivat Jesus

Fred Brugman

Fred’s family announces his passing on Friday, September 16. He was a loving, supportive husband, friend and partner to his wife of over 39 years, Liseann. He was the best Dad to his children Chris (Jaime), David (Teejay), Alexandra and Elizabeth. He was so proud of their achievements and was always ready to support any endeavor. Fred was an upbeat, creative, kind and compassionate man; always ready to share a joke with those he met during his day. He will be missed by his brothers Joe (Laurie) and Joepy (Kathy), many nieces and nephews. Fred was a loving Opa to Emily and Anthony. He was a loyal, loving son-in-law to Ted Tryhorn and Sheila Taylor. He is survived by his sisters and brothers-in-law Mimi, Jane (Del), Sheila (Bob), Terry (Tim), Rob and Brian (Carolyn).

Fred was an actively involved member of the Knights of Columbus, serving as Grand Knight for council 1652 and District Deputy. He was affectionately known as “Fred the Electrician” and owned his own business for over 25 years.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff at Juravinski Cancer Centre for their compassionate care. 

In memory of Fred, donations Juravinski Cancer Centre would be appreciated by his family. Online condolences at www.pattersonfuneralhome.com
