St. John Vianney

August 3rd, 2015

One of our brothers’ has reminded me that Tuesday, August 4th is the feast of St. John Vianney, the Curé of Ars, the patron saint of parish priests.

It is a good day to reach out to our priests and let them know of our appreciation for their vocations. Nowadays it is easier to contact priests we have known in the parishes where we might have resided. So many of us have moved to Wake Forest from other places, but we still remember the priests who served there. Many of those parishes have the email addresses of their priests. Many priests now have Facebook pages.

This is also an opportunity to let our seminarians know that we are thinking of them and that we pray for the intercession of St. John Vianney as they are on their journey toward ordination.

Many of us know priests for whom their vocation has included very difficult times personally or in their circumstances. They need our prayers of support to remain faithful and to work through their personal struggles. This is a good day to pray for them, especially.

Our Church sends so many of our priests to dangerous areas of the world. Pray for their safety and success in their work.

 

As a fraternal organization, we need our priests as examples to show that a virtuous and devoted life is within our reach. They need our prayerful support to carry out their ministries to all who need them.

 

 

Yours in Christ

8/8 – We are scheduled to help both Brown Bag and Operation Harvest Ministries.   Trish Petry (coordinator for Brown Bag) has asked for school supplies (including school bags) for the kids we deliver lunches to.  If you can, please sign up at the link below and bring your school supply donations to the event.  Thank so much for the help and support!

10/10 – The 2015 Triangle Run/Walk for Autism will be held at Moore Square Downtown Raleigh.  Our council is once again a sponsor for this event and as a sponsor, we are given 6 waived entries for the 5K race.  We have until October 2nd to use up all 6 waived entries, but if we can’t fill the entries by the end of September, I will invite others outside of our council and circle to join me.  This is a fun event for the whole family to join.  Will you join me?  See our team page below using Discount Code, KOCTRW15, to waive the the $25 fee.

Brown Bag and Operation Harvest – 7/25

July 20th, 2015
Worthy Brothers and Squires:
Just reminding you that we’re scheduled to help Brown Bag and Operation Harvest Ministries this Saturday, 7/25.  No one has signed up thus far.  If you can, please help.
Please know that depending on the number of volunteers at hand, the work gets done quickly.  Also, perhaps you’ve noticed that both ministries tend to start around 15/20 minutes early; therefore, I wouldn’t be surprised if OH finish packing around 9:40am and BB around 10:20am.  Please plan to come early especially if you wish to help deliver BB sandwiches.

A Little Help Please

July 20th, 2015

Brothers,

I was contacted by a parishioner today who needs help moving a small (4×6) shed-type building to her home around the corner.  She tells me that the roof has already been removed but must also be moved.  I’m not sure of a timeline.

Please let me know if you can lend a hand.  I think that a ‘team’ of 3-4 would do the trick.

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Ed Gary

Knights and Squires Basketball Night

July 12th, 2015
Brothers and Squires:
Just letting you know that this Thursday, July 16th at 7pm, we will have our first Knights and Squires Basketball Night at the St. Catherine of Siena gymnasium.  As indicated in today’s church bulletin, all basketball skill levels are welcome and depending on who shows up, we will figure out the format as to how we will play the games.
I have attached the gym rules and waiver forms.  All participants must sign a waiver.  For minor Squires, I need a parent/guardian to sign the waiver on behalf of your Squire(s) in order for them to be allowed to play.  So, either print a copy of the waiver form, sign it, and hand it to me or sign the form in the gym; I’ll have the documents printed out.
Yours in Christ,
