From Brother Joseph Hafesh, Benedict XV Council, 2355, Cliffside Park:
PLEASE JOIN ME IN THANKING THREE of our Bergen Counties “Shining Knights:” Andrew, Matthew, and Timothy— for their amazing contribution to KnightsClub. All three of our brothers, devout Roman Catholics, participated in Episode 5, and offered their most inspired and spiritual perspectives on “The Eucharist, A Source of Hope and Healing.” YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS this Outstanding Spectrum Televised broadcast. It also includes a brief heart felt inspirational film on the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ, and a special segment on DiscerningGod’s Will /his Voice, to spiritually guide us in the challenges in our Lives.

Just some reminders regarding policies and procedures for submitting postings for the website.
Events that are sponsored by the Bergen Federation, First New Jersey District Fourth Degree, New Jersey State Council, Supreme Council, or the Archdiocese of Newark appear on the Home page. Events that are Council/Assembly sponsored appear on the Council Events page. All items to be posted must go through the Federation President, who will review the material to be posted. If approved, he will forward the information to me for posting. Ideally, please submit your material AT LEAST 3 WEEKS before the date of your event. This will give the Federation President time to review the material and forward it to me. In addition, your posting will have ample time to be on the website to be viewed by others who can respond to your events. Postings are removed automatically after the event.
Want to be notified of events and news? If you aren't receiving notifications about events and news and would like to, enter your name and e-mail address in the Federation Updates section of the home page and click Submit. Lastly, and this is very important - If you are posting an event that involves bingo, raffle, tricky tray, et al, you will need to provide the your New Jersey Legalized Games of Change Control Commission Registration ID number and Raffle License number on your flyer. Since the Internet is public domain, you want to make sure your event is in compliance with New Jersey state regulations. Also, NEVER, EVER post material that mentions games of chance and alcohol - the combination is not permitted under state regulations!!! If you have questions regarding this last point, please feel free to ask me.
