Worthy Brothers and Squires:
 
Just in case you haven’t heard and are planning on helping the Brown Bag Ministry this Saturday, 26, the event has been canceled due to our Parish Contrada; however, there will be plenty of opportunity for us to get involved in this special Parish event of friendly competition and fun.  Come out and bring the whole family!
 
Note that our council will be serving lunch and dinner.  Come for the food or come help serve or both.
            Lunch – burgers and dogs

Fellow Brothers:
 
We finally received the diagnosis for my wife Theresa (Tree) and there is not a diagnosis of Barrett’s esophagus and the biopsy  on stomach polyps was benign.  There will be more treatments for lesser indications, but not the extent that was feared.  We both thank you for all of your prayers and support, along with God’s grace in this time of faith and hope.
 
In Christ,
Theresa and Bruce Huffine
   
 

Silent Auction

April 21st, 2014

Brothers,

We want to give everyone a chance to participate in the Silent Auction.  It is a very important component of the amount  raised for charity at the Annual Golf Tournament. Approximately 30% of the total proceeds is generated from the Silent Auction.  An up-to-date list is attached that shows 13 of the 24 items currently have bids. Our goal is to have bids on all 24 items before tournament day. You can help us meet that objective by joining in the bid process,  either by making an opening bid or by placing  a  higher bid on the 13 items mentioned above.

This is a golden opportunity to pitch in and help  the Tournament Steering Committee that has worked so diligently in the past year to make the tournament a success in raising money for our charities. The value of each individual item far surpasses the minimum bid we seek. So, please give this opportunity your careful consideration.

Bids can be made by sending an e-mail to Bill Spendley……..wspendley@nc.rr.com or by calling him……919-453-2094. Merely state the number of the item and the amount of the bid. Also, if you have any questions,  do not hesitate to get in touch with Bill.

 

Thank you Brothers for your kind consideration!

Community Blood Drive: May 16, 2014, 2:30pm to 7:30pm

April 13th, 2014

Four times a year, the Council coordinates a blood drive. The first was held in late 1995 at the cafeteria of the Southeastern Baptist Seminary. It moved to the parish buildings when they were completed. Since 2005, about 2000 pints have been donated.

Giving blood is an act of charity in the spirit of “love your neighbor as yourself.” In a way, giving blood is an imitation of Christ, who gave His blood that we might live. The recipient does not know the identity of the donor; the donor does not know the identity of the recipient. Matthew 6 tells us to make our “charitable deed… in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”

Donors need to be healthy, at least 17 years old, and weigh at least 110 lbs. Bring an ID (such as a drivers license). If you take medications, a list is suggested. Eat a healthy low-fat meal before donating. Drink an extra 16 oz. of liquid before and after your donation. All blood types are needed, but there is special need for A+, A-, and AB-.

For more information, contact Hank Pierwola at (919) 556-3619 or hpierwola@yahoo.com; appointments can also be made at www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation

Contrada Help

April 10th, 2014
Brothers,
At tonight’s meeting, I put out the sign up sheet for help at the Contrada Festival with Lunch and Dinner.  We had three sign ups……three.  We need help guys.  This is our parish, our church, our Catholic family.  With all the blessings we have with our new church, our extraordinary clergy, and a large vibrant council, we can only muster three volunteers to help with our annual parish family festival?  That isn’t the group of Knights that I know!  We have over 200 members.  We should have more help than we know what to do with!!!
So, I’ll ask again, who can help with lunch and dinner at the Contrada!
Fraternally Yours in Christ,

Matt:
 
Please have the brothers pray for my wife, Theresa (Tree) who is being tested for cancer of the esophagus.  We will have results early next week.  This type of disease (Barrett’s Esophagus) is similar to the one that claimed her father, so we are praying this will not repeat itself.  Pray for her well being and that grace and good news will prevail during this troubling time.
 
Thank you
Brother Bruce Huffine

April Business Meeting

April 7th, 2014
Brothers,
Remember that this Thursday April 10 is our monthly business meeting.  Lots to hit since this is our last meeting before both the Golf Outing and the Contrada Festival.  The membership raffle is still rolling and I believe it’s up to 100.00 this month.  At this month’s meeting, you will also have the opportunity for a first look at all the silent auction items that will be available at the Outing on May 5th.
Come out and enjoy the fraternity and fun!!
Fraternally Yours in Christ,

Call to Action! Need Help After Masses this Sat/Sunday

April 4th, 2014
Brothers,
As the Bishops Annual Appeal is winding down for this year, our parish is close to meeting the goals set by the diocese.  Father Tighe is going to make a request for contributions at all masses this  weekend to help push us over the top.  We want to hit our goals and show our gratitude to our Bishop for the beautiful new church we are now blessed to have due to his support and hard work.  Unfortunately, many who wish to make a donation on the spot do not have cash or their checkbook with them.  We now have a way around this!  To make it extremely easy, he has 4 iPads with “squares” to take credit card payments, and Father has asked for the help of 4 brothers after each mass to help collect the payments.  The pads are programmed so that the process is extremely easy (I was even able to do it!!). It’s like running a fast food register with the pictures on them.  Very simple and there will be someone there to help you with the process.  Just need the men with the willingness to help!  The ladies are more than welcome to help too if we have some husband and wife teams that can help out!
Please let me know as soon as you can if you would be able to help out or if you can’t reply and want to help, just get to the back of church at the end of mass.  Again this is after all masses THIS WEEKEND!
God Bless
Fraternally Yours in Christ,

Prayers for Mike Pughes

April 3rd, 2014
Brothers, 
Kristi, a friend of Mike Pughs’ wife, sent me a note that Mike was admitted to Rex Hospital this morning.  Please keep him in your prayers.
Please pray for Mike Pughes, member of St. Catherine of Siena parish and Knights of Columbus.

He was taken to Rex hospital today. His wife Gwen is in Idaho, visiting her father.  Mike had a standard procedure done today and there was concern about oxygen level so they transported him via ambulance. 

His daughter is with him. I think his wife is awaiting test results before flying home. She doesn’t want to be in the air if doctors want to consult with her.

I will let you know of any news as soon as I hear.

Kristi
