No, this isn’t The Series on FOX, but a History Making Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round, the 1st One at PS 101Q in Forest Hills, NY, in Forest Hills Gardens, a Private Community.

How it will make History is that all of The Contestants will have been born entirely in the 21st Century, with the oldest contestants being born in 2001 & the youngest ones born in 2006.

Next Year at the 25th Anniversary, those who were the 14 Year Olds who would turn 15 in 1992, will be age 40.

This Year marks the 20th Anniversary of The Competition’s 1st Forest Hills Contestants. There were Two Queens County Champions from Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, one of whom represented Our Lady Of Mercy Recreation, while the other represented the OLQM Teen Center.

Our Lady Of Mercy in Forest Hills, Queens, will be the Partner for Monsignor Sherman Council’s 24th Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round I.

Wednesday Evening January 13th, 2016 at 7:00PM, starts an interesting evening.

Vivat Jesus!

September 11 & Byzantine Catholics

10 Sep

For those of you who are Ukrainian Greek Catholic and are on the Traditional Julian Calendar, tomorrow is The Feast & Fast of The Beheading of St. John The Baptist. It is a Day of Liturgy(Holy Day of Obligation) & a Day of Abstention From Meat. According to the Traditional Julian Calendar, September 11th on the Gregorian Calendar is August 29th on the Traditional Julian Calendar.

But, I doubt that any of you have forgotten Tuesday September 11th, 2001 when at 8:46 AM ET, a Plane was crashed into the North Tower at the World Trade Center Complex, followed by a second Plane crashing into the South Tower of The World Trade Center Complex at 9:03AM ET. The South Tower collapsed at 9:59AM ET, with the North Tower collapsing at 10:29AM ET.

Do this day as one of Prayer & Penance. Also do abstain from Meat. This is for all Catholics, East & West.

Ad Aeternam Et In Paradisium, Orate Fratres.

17 Years Since The Morning Of A Dry Throat

23 Feb

The Dry Throat was as the result of calling the names of 63 Altar Servers at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills, Queens on Sunday, 02-22-1998, between the end of the 10:00AM Mass & 11:30AM High Mass. There were also other people presented with awards in connection with the Knights Of Columbus Altar Server Awards. It was the 1st Time in Msgr Sherman Council History that THIS ceremony took place and it did not occur in East Glendale. In short the Council did this at the corner of Ascan Avenue and Queens Boulevard. I was also Grand Knight at this time,17 Years ago, in an Era when The 1st Text Messages were flying around on OMNIPOINT Handsets(OMNIPOINT is a wholly owned subsidiary of T-Mobile).

Of 63 Servers being honored, only 19 Showed up at the Huge Catholic Church at Queens Blvd & Ascan Avenue. The Server Awards are on Videotape. There was no such thing as Smartphones which could be used to telecast the event live. Vimeo, Dailymotion, & You Tube did not exist, nor did Veetle, Bambuser nor Ustream exist.

What has happened since this ceremony are the following:
One of the Altar Servers who was awarded a Knights Of Columbus Altar Server Award, David James, currently coordinates the Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs Altar Server Society. He follows in the Tradition of Desmond Flynn, who ran the Corps before. The # of Servers is now at 97 Servers;
For two days in 1998, when the Baskin Robbins Shop was at Ascan Avenue and Austin Street, now occupied by the Natural Market, a 5th Grader and Altar Server called Amanda, asked me why I didn’t present a Server Award to a girl named Rennelynne. I thought that Amanda called her Rennerina. That has been taken care of and Rene Lynne Carino became the 64th Altar Server to be honoured. Thank You Amanda;

The Next, Legitimate Knights Of Columbus Altar Server Award, was performed In October, 2006, when Donald Gander was Grand Knight, legitimately honouring the Sacred Heart East Glendale Altar Server Corps and was held at Msgr Sherman Council on Myrtle Avenue in East Glendale, Queens. In October, 2008, Grand Knight Dominic Chirachella honoured the St. Pancras Altar Server Corps.
The ONLY Altar Server Corps left is Our Lady Of Mercy on Kessel Street in Forest Hills, Queens.

The Next Essay deals with a certain “Pious” Family at Sacred Heart in East Glendale, who practiced the Vice Of Jealousy, whose Favorite Restaurant, Portofino, is just across the street from both Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs R C Church and School.
These People were “Pious”, if you like The Borgias & as cunning as many if not most of The Borgias. In short and In Retrospect, this Family, now domiciled in Arizona’s Phoenix Metropolitan Area, were Jealous and Treacherous.
Starting a war meant nothing to them, even if it meant starting One in the Grand Knight’s Backyard, where the Grand Knight went to Mass.

As for the Dry Throat from pronouncing so many names while in the OLQM Sanctuary, my thirst was quenched at the Council. Before that, The Pastor of Sacred Heart was presented with his Knights Of Columbus Honorary Life Membership Card by me at Sacred Heart Rectory on 78th Avenue.
Then at the Council I had two Diet Cokes which refreshed me.

And then I went home, and one more ceremony on Sunday, March 1st to honor The Sacred Heart Altar Server Corps.

M, Eh!

The 20th Century Ended On January 14th, 2015

16 Jan

The Last Ever 20th Century Born Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Contestant, finished shooting at 9:04PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015(10:34PM in Newfoundland), at the 23rd Annual Msgr Sherman Council Knights of Columbus #5103 Competition at PS 101Q in Forest Hills Gardens in Queens, NY.
It was an Interesting 60th Birthday for me. In the Byzantine Rite of the Catholic Church, this day on the Julian Calendar is January 1st, known as New Years Day. The Byzantine Rite recognizes two feasts, namely Feast Of The Circumcision Of The Child Jesus and the Feast Of St. Basil The Great on this Day and Date. I began the day with Mass at 8:00AM at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens, NY. There was no Feast on January 14th, on the Ordinary Form Calendar in the Roman Rite.
There is an Annual Glitch in the competition and Sacred Heart Recreation in East Glendale, Queens, adjacent to Our Lady Of Mercy in Forest Hills, Queens, always sends more contestants than everyone else does.

Does anyone in East Glendale know how to read English?

But the competition was done from 7:08PM(8:38 PM in Newfoundland) until 9:04 PM EST(10:34PM in Newfoundland), taking 1 Hour, 56 Minutes to do. The Last Contestant was from Sacred Heart and he has the Distinction of being the Last Ever Competitor who was born in the 20th Century, being born in 2000.

Hence the title of this blog post, because the competition will, beginning in January of 2016, have all contestants born in the 21st Century. It has been 23 Years since the 1st Competition at Christ The King HS in Middle Village in Queens.

The New Era begins in January, 2016.


M, Eh!
