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.
Vivat Jesus,

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

Brothers,

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.

 

 

 

Richard Wickwar

July 30th, 2014

Brothers,

Our brother, Richard Wickwar, has apparently suffered a stroke this past weekend.  He needs our help.   Please continue to pray for Richard and his family.

We know that prayer works and the Wickwar’s  need all your prayers now.
