September 2021

Worthy Brother Knights,

The most repeated phrase in the whole Bible, in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, is “Fear not!” or “Have no fear!” or “Do not be afraid!” or “Be not afraid!”  It is often claimed that this phrase appears exactly 365 times in the Bible, one for each day of the year.

As we begin a new fraternal year, as we begin to reopen our churches, workplaces, entertainment centers, we need to open our Councils and Assemblies to begin anew our programs, our service to others as we did before the pandemic. 

I understand that some of us may still fear encountering someone who has not been vaccinated.  So as council and assembly leaders, you need to apply CDC guidelines so you leave no brother knight behind in his participation in your programs for they should “Have no fear.” 

The time for reconnecting has passed.  The time to move forward is now. Not yesterday, not tomorrow but NOW!

Dear Brother Knight,

If you've not submitted your reservation for the 9 October Gibault Envoy Conference and 100th Anniversary Celebration you cannot attend.  Reservations were due by 1 September.


What's happening at Gibault?

  • Preparations for 9 October 100th Anniversary; Envoy Conference starts at 10:00 AM, Anniversary Celebration starts at about 2:00 PM, and Mass starts at 4:30 PM.
  • Century Ride, sponsored by FOE, is 18 September at Gibault; Breakfast 9:00 AM, Ride 11:00 AM, Dinner 4:00 PM.
  • Many special events to celebrate 100th Anniversary and show appreciation for Staff. Gibault hosted a staff luncheon, a staff breakfast, two ice cream social events, a coffee bar, and a food truck on campus for the afternoon. There has also been a taco bar for staff. Gibault has ordered two meat trays a month from a local establishment, and they draw names for a winner. The winner receives the meat tray and has their picture taken and this picture is placed on our social media page in celebration of our upcoming centennial year.
  • The staff has been asked to place Congratulations to Gibault 100 years of service signs in their yard.  All staff who post a sign and take a picture of it are placed in a $50 prize drawing.
  • There is a 100-year office decorating contest and the winner received a prize
  • The children participated in a 100-year hat decorating contest and the winner received a prize
  • Gibault ordered two cakes from a local establishment each month with a different 100-year logo on each cake.  The cakes are delivered to different dormitories with children, so they can celebrate our upcoming big day on October 9th.
  • The CEO hosted department meetings and ordered lunch for staff.  The meetings were held to discuss how we wished for our future to look going into the next 100 years.


How can you help Gibault?

  • Hold a fundraiser at your council.  Invite Gibault Director of Fund Development, Melissa Reed to attend.
  • Bring the check to the 9 October Envoy Conference and present it to CEO Michele Madley or mail the donation to Melissa Reed.
  • Spread the word in your community that Gibault is hiring; both in Terre Haute and Carmel, Job Opportunities.
