By Grand Knight, Ron Gay:
Our 2011 Clergy Dinner was a resounding success! With Bishop Joe Vasquez of the Diocese of Austin in attendance, Council 3205 welcomed more than 20 members of the Clergy from the Bryan Deanery and thanked them for their dedicated service to our Catholic community. Approximately 175 people enjoyed a great dinner, and the opportunity to visit with our local clergy including Msgr. Malinowski and Sister Gretchen Kunz, and to cherish their service to us and our families. Members of the Msgr. Valenta Assembly 2041 provided the color guard for the opening flag ceremony. The Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas and Council 3205 Chaplain, Fr. Edwin Kagoo, gave the opening prayer. Bishop Vasquez gave some wonderful remarks praising the work of our local clergy. Fr. Uche, also of St. Thomas Aquinas, gave the benediction.
