A well-attended General Meeting, on Tuesday August 15, heard Brother Chris Pugh thank everyone who was instrumental in supporting his work with the Kitchener Knights of Columbus. Before departing on his new venture as a professor at Brandon University, Chris was honoured with the Brother Dan Dineen Award of Distinction for his contributions to Council 1504.
Five years ago, Chris came to Council 1504, ascended to the Fourth Degree and then Faithful Navigator of the Father Funcken Assembly. Inspired by his Christian attitude, Chris inaugurated several unique and innovative Council events that were regularly attended.
Attaining his PhD in Physics, Chris will teach at Brandon University for a year then will consider entering the seminary. Before the meeting concluded, Chris was presented with special gifts of two religious sculptures that were subsequently blessed by Father Larry. After the meeting, many of the members enjoyed a special “bon voyage” cake, wishing Brother Chris Godspeed.
