Brown Bag and Operation Harvest Ministries — 8/30

August 26th, 2014
Worthy Brothers and Squires:
I would like to thank those who came out and helped Operation Harvest and Brown Bag Ministries last Saturday.  We had a total of 9 volunteers signed up out of which 5 were Knights.  Please extend my thanks to your loved ones who came along to help.
Let me remind everyone that this Saturday we are once again helping these ministries to fulfill our commitment of twice a month.  We still have a couple of slots left open so if you are in town and are able to help, please sign up and join us.
Please note that the above site has been updated throughout the remainder of this year.
Thank you for all that you do in service to our church and community!
In Christ,

Street Samaritans & Gospel Ministry has witnessed at abortion centers for many years pleading for the lives of the unborn babies and for all of the souls entering the abortion center.  We have been experiencing an increase of younger pregnant teenagers crossing our paths who are frightened, desperate, confused and so misinformed with a mind set of ending their so called problem.    

At this point of our crisis intervention the majority of the girls unfortunately have closed their hearts to life for their precious child instead now choose to end their child’s life.  Abortion is frequently used (often multiple times) as a means of contraception. 

Today’s youth are subjected to our secular culture of relativism; immersed in a tidal wave of immorality and immodesty.  Often without adequate knowledge they are tempted with daily decisions affecting their lives that have unknown potentially perilous and multiple grave results, including the death of their precious child by either abortifacient contraception or abortion.

Accordingly, in 2009 we began “OUTREACH FOR TRUTH” on the public sidewalks adjoining the Wake County public high schools (HS).  Here we combat Satan’s lies by striving to reach as many young hearts as possible with God’s moral laws from His word, His church and the natural laws He placed in all hearts. The “Gospel of Life” is indivisible from the “Good News Gospel” and for His truth to prevail in our ever  increasingly immoral culture it must be heard!. The tip of an immoral iceberg publicly exposed, i.e.; N&O articles: “Nude Photos of Wake Teens On Line” on February 19, 2014 and “Aided By Social Media Teen’s Go Viral” front page on March 5, 2014!

 Many of the students are openly receptive of the truths offered, as are parents and teachers. Each HS visited in witness leaves several hundred pieces of literature and “Alive Yet Unborn” poster images to penetrate consciences within the student body.  Dialogue is welcomed with all open minded individuals; seasoned volunteers are available to assist new participants if needed. All those who know the moral truths of our church are well qualified to begin participating. 

At the close of day the Disciples of Christ leave the sidewalks knowing that God’s mail has been well delivered to the hungry souls of many students we have encountered.   Under Freedom of Speech in the public square all are respected with charitable love. 

Additional support team volunteers are needed at each school visited where souls, quality of life and potential lives of the unborn now and into the future are at risk!  Appropriate freedom of speech permits are obtained for each event.

Brown Bag and Operation Harvest Ministries — 8/23 and 8/30

August 18th, 2014
Worthy Brothers and Squires:
In our last Knights council meeting, we voted to increase our commitment in helping Brown Bag from once to twice a month due a need.  I propose that we do the same for Operation Harvest that way we help both of these important ministries on the same days; besides it would only extend our commitment by half hour.  So starting this month, we will be helping these ministries on 8/23 and 8/30.  I have created a sign up site for us to track and to ensure that we have enough volunteers to do the job.
For Knights and Squires, please visit the site below to sign up, which explains commitments of no more than an hour and as little as a few minutes.

For those who are new Knights and Squires or exiting members who haven’t had the opportunity to help, OH collects donated groceries from participating stores, repacks them into 30 bags and delivers them to 30 poor elderly shut-ins while BB makes about 350 sandwiches and also delivers them to poor in Wake Forest.  I strongly encourage you to come help and come with your family; you’ll have a blast!
For those who helped these ministries before, I’m very thankful for your dedication and support; I know in my heart that the poor feel the same.  Please continue to help these ministries especially in this time of need.

I am happy to pass this along to you all.

Michael has come a long way and has a long way to go, but has overcome so much! He is off the trachea, off the feeding tube, still has some medical issues that hopefully they will figure out.  He has been getting blood transfusions, don’t know where he is losing blood and he has been retaining fluid, some in his lungs, which is concerning.  He is at Wake Med Spinal Injury Rehab and doing great.


He is still paralyzed from the waist down, but when we went to visit at Wake Med yesterday, he was sitting on the curb waiting for us in his new motorized wheelchair!  He looked awesome.  What good it did his mind and heart to be mobile and outside, not stuck in the room and in a hospital bed.  He accompanied us to the cafeteria for dinner and we had a nice time on the patio outside, since it was so beautiful.  It was nice to see him happy and we could finally breathe a little. The nurses told him when we went down to eat, “Michael, don’t forget to come back!”. LOL


Praise God in all His wondrous  glory.

St. John Vianney

August 4th, 2014


Today is St. John Vianney day, the patron saint of priests.  It would be a wonderful gesture if each of you send a note to our Parish priests and seminarians to thank them for their faithful service and vocation.

We are all truly Blessed to have all of them.

Rosati’s Authentic Chicago Pizza

July 30th, 2014

The owner of Rosati’s, Dennis Rhodes, was very generous to us at our Golf Outing.  He invites us to visit and get some delicious pizza.

When you do, mention that you’re a Knight and Brother John Raupp and thank him for his generosity.  I know that he’ll appreciate it. And you’ll love the food.
