HISTORY OF THE BISHOP JOHN FARRELL ASSEMBLY

The idea of a new Assembly began in the mind of one man - SK Vern Nelligan, who at the time was Master of the Fourth Degree, District 2. There were two Assemblies in the Hamilton Area then - Bishop Ryan Assembly, and Father Sean P. O’Sullivan Assembly. 

There were a number of problems to overcome. The first was to gain support for the new Assembly, and the second was to find worthy people

to help him establish it. Sir Knight Vern Nelligan started by approaching the other two Assemblies for permission to speak to members living in the area for the new Assembly. 

To help him in this task, he named a formation group consisting of Sir Knights Frank Morelli, and Walter Morrissey, as well as Sir Knights, Paul Coughlin and Dr. Romy Anastasio. 

This area and the Parish Councils in each section were negotiated with to ensure an equal distribution of councils and members. 

Recruitment drives took place at each of the councils now in this jurisdiction. All of this work was completed within 30 days and the charter was applied for and approved within 60 days. The name of Bishop John Farrell was approved by Bishop Tonnos who attended the Charter Night held in December of 2007.

Each member of the organizing team has served as an officer of the Assembly, including Sir Knight, and Former Master Vern Nelligan, who is presently the Faithful Scribe. 

The recent history of the Assembly would not be complete without mentioning the activities of the Colour Guard. This is the most visible branch of the Knights of Columbus, and it is offered only in the Fourth Degree. The Colour Guard is what the public sees in action, whether at a Mass, a funeral, or some other special event. The Colour Guard of the Bishop John Farrell Assembly has been very busy over the past five years, under the direction of its commanding officers. These have included Sir Knights Paul Coughlin and Dr. Romy Anastasio and - of course - the members of the Colour Guard themselves.

COMPASSION (The depth and breadth of it  is truly amazing!)

A man was sitting on a blanket at the beach.  He had no arms and no legs.
Three women were walking past and felt  sorry for the poor man.

The first woman said 'Have you ever had  a hug?'
 The man said 'No,' so she gave him a hug and  walked on...

The second woman said, 'Have you ever had a  kiss?'

The man said, 'No,' so she gave him a kiss and walked  on.

The third woman came to him and said, 'Have you ever been  f****d?'

The fellow's eyes lit up and with a big grin he said,  'No.'

She said, 'You will be when the tide comes  in.'

ARAW, SIKSIKAN SA JEEP:

Pastoral Letter on Euthanasia

Written by Bishop Anthony Tonnos


Dear People of Hamilton Diocese,

I write to bring to your attention a matter of grave importance that calls for our prayer and action. Our federal Parliament could very well be soon debating the issue of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

In June 2005, a private member’s Bill (Bill C-407) was given first reading in the House of Commons. Reports indicate that it will likely be given some priority by the federal government. Indeed, the Attorney General of Canada had declared some months ago that it was time to look closely at the case of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Promoters will undoubtedly seek to frame this debate in terms of compassion for those who are suffering. However, true compassion consists in alleviating suffering and in showing special respect to the dignity of a person whose life is weakened. It does not and cannot consist in bringing that person’s life to an unnatural end. In fact, what is proposed by the Bill is the taking of a human life when a person is most vulnerable.

A recent statement from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, issued in response to Bill C-407, makes the following point: “At the moment a basic question is being asked: Can Canadians, who are so concerned about abuse against the sick, the elderly, the handicapped and the vulnerable, entertain the possibility of legalizing the most extreme abuse, killing another person?”

In our Catholic tradition, life is a gift from God and is, therefore, to be respected and protected from conception to natural death. Please contact the Prime Minister and your Member of Parliament to make clear your opposition to any effort to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada. We must act without delay.

Yours sincerely in Christ,

BISHOP OF HAMILTON
