Subject: Hank Pierwola in VA Hospital

Thanks for the clearing weather..I received this information from Debora Godfrey of th Legion Auxiliary yesterday and thought that it needed to be shared..
“Hank is in the VA. He has been fighting something all week and today I had his son John come and convince him to go to the hospital. He refused all week to go and get checked out.  He has a bad infection in his feet that has spread to his blood and was heading to his kidneys. He is being given iv antibiotics.  We will know more tomorrow about what is next.  They think they will have to amputate the remaining toes on his right foot and possibly the left one. Rich and Pete Lambert know and will keep the guys informed.  I am going up there tomorrow to get some passwords from him and who his red cross rep is since he has a blood drive at St. Catherine’s in 10 days. I will keep you informed. Please pass this on to the ladies. Right now I don’t think he will be up for visitors. When he comes home I will let you know.”
Thanks,Douglas Doster

I will be going to UNC Heart & Vascular Hospital on Monday morning to have my pacemaker/defibrillator implanted. It should be pretty routine, but that’s what I thought the last time I went in for a “routine” procedure. If all goes well I will be coming home on Tuesday. I would like to make the Assembly meeting, but I will have to wait and see. I pray all will be well after the storm.

Subject: Update on Emergency Response (Raleigh Area)

 

Brother All,

 

I wanted to provide a quick update on the efforts in the Raleigh Area in preparation for support after the storm. As of now, Supreme is sending an 18 wheeler destined for StMM in Apex. I am told to expect 250 cases of water and food for 200 people. I don’t really know what that means, but we will likely need to divide it up to be transported to affected areas and/or store until it can be delivered. I am currently targeting a Saturday delivery date with a time TBD. When I find more information I will be reaching out to you for manpower support to move the supplies. I am in possession of a 26’ truck with a ramp and lift gate as well as the trailer from 7186 for transporting items.  After the storm when we know where the need is the greatest we will make arrangements to divide up the supplies and get them where they are needed.

 

There is a link on the main KofCNC.org webpage where people can sign up as a volunteer. I encourage you to sign up so that there is a central information repository. Also spread the word. Additionally, if you or anyone know of people that need assistance, there is a sign up for that as well.

 

I ask that you please communicate this information to your councils and please stay safe. The next 48 hours will be crucial.

Thanks again

Chris

POSTPONED: Knights of Columbus Business Meeting – 9/13

September 11th, 2018

Worthy Brothers,
As many of you already know, the parish office and school will be closed on the September 13th, due to hurricane Florence.  As such, our regularly scheduled business meeting will be postponed until the following Thursday, September 20th at 7:00 pm.  The dining room is unavailable on that night, so we will be meeting in room TC-2 (formerly purple) the Trinity Center.  

Several other events planned for this weekend will also be affected: 
    The evening for the Knights to lead the Rosary for father Tighe on September 14th at 7:00 pm in the church has been cancelled, but as Fr Bill     mentioned on Flocknote, please continue to pray the novena for Fr. Tighe and Mary, Undoer of Knots in the domestic church.      

    Operation Harvest scheduled on 9/15 has been cancelled.
    The OpLamb event scheduled for 9/15 and 9/16 has been also cancelled.

I want to thank those of you who responded the Fr Magee’s call to help prepare the church for the upcoming storm.  You guys never fail to step up when needed and I know our priests appreciate all that you do.
Finally, I pray that you and your families remain safe during the storm.  Please let me know if you are in need of assistance… if I am able, I will do my best to find you some help.

In Christ,
SK, Mike Potochnik, GK
Knights of Columbus, Council 11234St. Catherine of Siena, Wake Forest, NChttp://kofc11234.org

Brothers,

I just got a call from Fr Magee who is asking for our help.  As you know, Dave Moyer is recovering from his heart attack.  His physical abilities are limited.  So, here’s the deal; the church needs to prepare for the upcoming hurricane.  There are items that need to be moved to safe locations and others that need to be secured. 

This shouldn’t be hard.  Can you come today and/or tomorrow to help out?

Give me a call at 919-622-2664 so efforts can be coordinated.

Many thanks.

 

Yours in Christ,

SK Ed Gary, FN, PGK
