Welcome to the official site for Resurrection of Our Lord Council 13701 of the Knights of Columbus!
Resurrection of Our Lord Council 13701
We have once again reached a milestone in our Order’s Fraternal Year. And an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we have already achieved and what is yet to come. Our Council activities for the year are currently suspended because of the Covid19 Crisis.
The current Fiscal year is from August 1st, 2019 to July 31st, 2020. The Council began with a full slate of officers as follows:
- Grand Knight - Maurice MacDonell
- Deputy Grand Knight - John Blaskie
- Chaplain - Fr Tadek
- Chancellor - Patrick Rusheleau
- Advocate - John Leury
- Warden - Bill Romo
- Recorder - James Hetu
- Treasurer - Ray Hetu
- Financial Secretary - Leonard Brown
- Outside Guard - Larry Moore
- Inside Guard - Phillip Herby
- 1st Year Trustee - Michael Pichora
- 2nd Year Trustee - Greg Hart
- 3rd Year Trustee - Alan Jane
- Lecturer - Jim McGuire
- Webmaster - Ray Hetu
Because our Fraternal Year is coming to a close, we will be electing a new slate of officers in June for the next Fiscal Year from August 1st, 2020 to July 31st, 2021. If you are a 3rd-year knight of Council 13701, please consider taking a more formal role in your council. Some of our current executives will be stepping down at the end of this year and all have been involved for a number of years. If you are interested they would be more than happy to train and guide you in your new role. If you wish to consider a position, please contact our GK by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you good health. I would also like to ask all members to reflect on why they joined the order. As a member, your first obligation is to pay your yearly Dues which covers from January 1st to December 31st. Every council uses these funds to pay council Dues to State, Supreme, etc. and if not paid cuts into funds raised for charitable works.
Our council hosts a large number of activities throughout the year for the Church, Youth, Families, the Community, and the Council.
Our council meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday of each month - with the exception of the months of December, June and July. We meet in the parish hall of Resurrection of Our Lord parish, which is located at 1940 Saunderson Drive in Ottawa.
Membership information can be obtained by contacting our Grand Knight Maurice MacDonell by e-mail or through a Brother Knight. See our “Consider Joining the Knights of Columbus” section for more information!
We are an organization like no other!
We are an organization of dedicated Catholic men, 1.8 million members strong, and growing. An organization that, since 1882, has embodied the selflessness of man as it has helped overcome the problems of the world. Poverty. Ignorance. Apathy. Things which imperil not only a single individual, but the whole of humanity. We are men of faith, comprising over 12,000 Knights of Columbus councils at home and overseas. Guided not only by our belief in God and the Catholic Church, but by our belief in each other, and in ourselves.
