Worthy Brothers and Squires:
 
I would like to express my sincere thanks for those who participated in Brown Bag and/or Operation Harvest ministries this past weekend.  Know that the ministries you helped are grateful for your service but more importantly, the gratitude of the people you helped feed is priceless.  See Chris May’s email below.
 
When we are united, any work we do becomes light and easy.  Let’s keep this up!
 
Blessings,

2nd Degree Exemplification

July 26th, 2014
Brothers,
As our Worthy GK Ed notes below, a 2nd degree will be held Tuesday July 29th at St Raphael's.  Candidates will need to arrive at 6:30 for registration, and the ceremony will begin at 7pm sharp.  The degree will be held in the Lewis Room.

Please let me know if you would like to attend so I may let the St Raph's GK know how many brothers to expect.  If we get a few, we can also do a car pool from St Catherine's!
God Bless.

Fraternally yours in Christ,

Prayers are needed

July 22nd, 2014

Brothers,

I’ve just learned that Debra Punke, wife of our brother Rick, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  She’s scheduled for surgery on Aug 8.  Your thoughtful prayers are needed to see Debra and the Punke family through this difficult time.  I’ll keep everyone posted as I get more information.

Update on Bob Gray

July 22nd, 2014

Brothers,

 

Our brother Bob Gray has a slow growing prostate cancer.  For now, he and his urologist will check the cancer again in three months to see how much it has grown if it continues to grow; however, a more pressing issue was determined and Bob had gone through a surgery a week ago (July 14th) to remove 70 stones in his bladder and undergone a transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) procedure (removing 50% of his prostate) in the hopes of preventing further development of bladder stones.  Bob had a complication from the surgery last Thursday but he is doing better now recovering at home with his family.

 

Please continue to pray for Bob for a complete recovery from his surgery and that his prostate cancer stops growing–reversing its course leading towards complete healing.

 

Thank you for your continued prayers.

Pray for the Sendelback Family

July 22nd, 2014

Brothers –

Here is a Sendelback update.  Your prayers are working.  Please continue to pray for them.

 

Prayer warriors,

 

Joe’s mom is stabilized with meds and came home last night after 6 days in the hospital.  Hopefully she will do okay with some rest and the right combination of meds.  She has heart failure on the left side and COPD.  Bad combo.

 

Michael is in a medical rehab facility in Durham.  He now has the trachea out, after a few setbacks, still has the feeding tube, but they only use it at night. He is overwhelmed with questions of how he got here, why he is in NC, and what next.  He has some issues with short term memory, but we are working on it. Some coordination issues…but we will see.

He cannot feel below his belly button and they determined he had a spinal stroke.  We don’t know how much will come back.  He wasn’t doing well with that news, but is doing better. Once all of the medical issues are taken care of, they will transfer him to a spinal injury rehabilitation clinic.  We are looking into that now. Father Tighe and Father Duggan have been visiting him and they have helped with his state of mind. We are so thankful.

 

Thank you so much for the prayers to get them this far and the support.  We are still traveling to at least one hospital a night now, but we are taking it all day to day.  Please keep them in your prayers for total healing, if it is God’s will.

 

God bless you,

Phyllis and Joe

Your Prayers are Needed

July 14th, 2014

Brothers,

Please pray for Mike Chiarelli’s mom and his family.

 

Dear Worthy Grand Knight,

 

It is with sadness that I write to inform you that my mother, Karen Chiarelli, is in the ICU in NY.  I ask my brothers to include my mom in their prayers especially if they are praying a Chaplet of Divine Mercy or a Holy Rosary.   Thank you.  

 

Fraterno vobis in Christo, Mike

 

The Pharisees… said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"  He heard this and said, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.  Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.*‘  I did not come to call the righteous but sinners."   

 

-Matthew 9:11-13 (*Hosea 6:6)
