A message from Bob Gray

May 4th, 2016

Worthy Brothers All,
Please see the note below from our brother, Bob Gray. Please keep him and
his family in your prayers as they embark on this next phase of their lives.

Good luck Bob, and God bless. You will be missed by all! You have been a
great asset and example to our Council, our Assembly, and our Parish family.

*Fellow Knights and Brothers,*
*I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my fellow Knights for
accepting me as your Brother in Christ for the past three years. As many
of you know, I have been in a battle with cancer for the past 3 years and
also been living here alone in Wake Forest. My job caused me to have to
move here 4 years ago, but family conditions caused my wife, Judy, to have
to move back to Louisville shortly after moving here. *

*I have sold our home here in Wake Forest and Judy and I have bought a
house in Louisville. We are moving this Saturday, May 7th. I am
excited about moving back to be with my family. I anticipate another
surgery this Fall and I will be with my family where I can get the support
I will need during the recovery phase. *

*I regret that because of my extensive work travel, I have not been able to
attend most of the meetings. Please accept my apology for not being there
and participating in the activities. I appreciate being able to join
the Knights and advancing through the Forth Degree while living here in
Wake Forest. I have been Blessed with new friends through the Knights
while living here and it made my time here a wonderful experience. I will
take this experience with me to Louisville, where I plan to become involved
with the Knights there.*

*May God Bless each and every one of you.*

*Bob Gray*

Subject: KofC Representation at Special Olympics

Brother Knights,

I hope you remember my speaking with you about representing our Council by volunteering at the Special Olympics Summer Games. I hope you have given it serious thought and consideration. The event I hope you join us for is the bowling competition awards ceremonies. The bowling awards are scheduled for Sunday, June 5th at Buffaloe Lanes, Cary (151 High House Rd). Ceremonies will take place from roughly 10:30 AM until 3:30 PM. Special Olympics of North Carolina will provide lunches, and t-shirts for all volunteers to keep. I will be leading the awards ceremonies and directing the Awards Team. We will work together in putting together the awards and presenting them to the athletes. Here is a video of an individual awards presentation for you to view, if interested. Of course, this team of volunteers is from a military institution. We will not be so formal.

Special Olympics staff would also like to provide training for the Awards Assistant volunteers prior to the event so that we all will be familiar with the process and will know what to expect. They suggest that we take about 30 minutes prior to our next meeting on May 12, if this is satisfactory.

I can tell you from personal experience that when you leave at the end of the day, you will be tired. But you will also be full of joy and satisfaction. I guarantee that you will not regret the time and energy spent. Please check your calendars and simply reply to this e-mail as soon as possible if you are able to assist. Include your t-shirt size so we can order the shirts. Also, if you know of anyone else that wishes to volunteer, include their names, e-mail addresses and t-shirt sizes. Family members are welcome, and anyone 18 years of age or older can volunteer. We need 12 volunteers to confirm their participation and so far, we have 2. Please help Council 11234 make a good showing! Thank you.

Yours in Christ,

Joe Csuka

Brothers,
Please see the update from Gregg below. Praise be to God it appears Nick
escaped any serious injuries or long term effects from the accident. Thank
you for your powerful prayers.
God is Good, all the time!
God Bless,

Hi Matt,
Please know my family and I am so grateful for all the thoughts and
prayers. The cat scans on his head, neck, back and stomach came back
negative. X-rays of his back and shoulder also look good. They are letting
him come home once they give him another dose of pain killers and something
to make him sleep. He will be sore for the next 3 days and is on bed rest.
Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers.
Vivat Jesus
God Bless
Gregg

In need of Brown Bag Ministry Leaders

April 12th, 2016
Brothers,
As I have mentioned to you last month at our council meeting, Brown Bag Ministry’s leaders are stepping down.  How soon will they be stepping down?  There will be no Brown Bag on the 23rd of April while the schedule for the 30th of April and the entire May are on the verge of being canceled.  The leaders simply cannot fulfill their duties due to their life’s busy schedule.  Thus, they are looking for some one or group(s) of people to take on the responsibility and duties in order for the ministry to continue meeting at St. Catherine’s.  If any of you can pick up the food items on 2nd, 4th, or 5th Thursdays at Aldi’s, please let me know; I’m compiling a list of people interested as well as their availability.
Please note that contact information for Tom Falvey and Stacey Bell will be provided to us as soon as we decide to take on the lead role; we’ll be voting whether to take on lead role this Thursday at our council meeting.  I hope to see you there.
Below are specifics in running Brown Bag.  The more we have people volunteering to pick up the food items the better off we are as a council leading Brown Bag.  Please prayerfully consider volunteering!
  • Meets 2nd, 4th and 5th Saturday of each month from 10-11:15 at Trinity Center at St Catherine’s (April, July, October and December have 5th Saturdays in 2016)
  • Pick up food at Aldi’s on 4241 Louisburg Rd, Raleigh on 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursday of each month at 10:45am. Thursday is the only day Tom Falvey will be there with Brown Bag Ministry truck. If Food Bank runs late then you might have to wait a couple of minutes for Tom. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get the food items from Tom, which includes all supplies, bread, fruit, bologna, cheese and snacks. We are given bread to make 320-350 sandwiches, 20 bologna, and 2 blocks of cheese per Saturday.
  • Anyone with a mini-van, SUV, or truck could do pick up. Bologna and cheese must be stored in a refrigerator. Bananas need to be stored in a cool place.
  • All supplies must be called in for the month to Stacey Bell before the 2nd Thursday. This includes brown bags, sandwich bags, gloves, snack bags.
  • Check for donations in the Narthex at St Catherine’s Church. Any items marked BBM you can take.
  • Saturday morning all food items including crates are taken to St Catherine just before 10am. This would fill up a mini-van with backseats removed or folded down into the floor.
  • The volunteers take over from there with sorting snacks, counting bags and making sandwiches.
  • A separate group of volunteers goes in the adjoining classroom to make 30 Brown Bags for Turnberry Apartments. We have decided not to give them sandwiches anymore because they weren’t being used so they get oatmeal, fruit and snack.
  • When the lunches are complete we clean up, load up cars and head over to New Hope Village on N. Allen Street to hand out lunches.
  • A separate group heads to Turnberry Apts in Wake Forest.
  • Crates, supplies and food, as of now, have been stored at the Ligowski home. We have not been able to get room at St Catherine’s.
Blessings in Christ,
