Maggie's Place Needs Our Help!

Sent: Thursday, June 22, 2017 1:29 PM

Subject: Maggie's Place Needs Our Help!


Maggie's Place (a collection of homes for pregnant and parenting women) needs our help next Saturday July 1st installing pavers in a small area  (15*15 foot area) at Mary's Place in downtown Phoenix. Knowing that many of us love to work in the heat I volunteered our council to get the job done!  Plans are to meet in the parking lot at Corpus Christi at 6:30am so we can caravan to Mary's Place.

We will need someone with a truck since we need to supply the sand (pavers are already at the house).  Also needed are a few shovels, 2 pick axes, 2 brooms and a wheel barrel.   

Kindly let me know ASAP if you can assist as we only need 5-7 healthy (or semi-healthy) men to get this done in 3-4 hours.  We will stop for ice cream on the way home.

Vivat Jesus!

Raffle Update

Worthy District Deputies and Grand Knights,
The annual state convention is less than 3 weeks away.  This is the time to really energize your council(s) to sell charity raffle tickets.  Many councils that are historically successful with this project sell more than 50% of their total in the final 2 - 3 weeks.  Now is the time to push, not to close down.  Please ask your brother knights to get at least two or more books of tickets sold before the deadline. With several thousand Knights in the state, this would make a huge difference for the local and state charities. 
If each brother Knight could sell at least one additional book of tickets at $20 per book, it could generate more than $260,000 extra for the project...half of that total comes back to the council for its charities while the remainder funds the council incentive plan, cost of tickets and prizes (about 10%).  The balance helps to cover the charities that depend upon our state organization to assist them...St. Joseph Youth Camp, St. Vincent de Paul, Right to Life, First Wave,  Rosary Sunday, Men's Conference and numerous programs/projects for our Bishops (Olmsted, Kicanas, Wall and Nevares).
Sell the charity not the prizes!  We are a charitable organization and we do this project for our charities, not for the money.
Vivat Jesus,

It is with heavy heart that I have to report that Brother John A. Asaro passed away this morning!  John use to work in the parish office; I remember John fondly as the "closer of the room" as he sat there patiently, with a smile on his face, after our Knight's meeting in rooms 5-6 . . . he will be missed.  Kindly remember to keep John and his family in your prayers.

We will update everyone once funeral arrangments have been made.

Nationwide Rallies to defund PP

Subject: [Corpus Christi 10062 Mail] Nationwide Rallies to defund PP

Brother Knights,
Please consider taking some time Saturday to help in this effort.
As a Knight, we respect life from conception through natural death.
If you would like to carpool there, please let me know.
Vivat Jesus!

Subject: Nationwide Rallies to defund PP
GK, Please forward this message to your Council Brothers.
This coming weekend, February 11th & 12th, there will be rallies nationwide to Defund Planned Parenthood.  
I ask that you take time this weekend to participate in one of these events in the Phoenix area.  
I encourage you to wear Knights emblem apparel and remember to behave as Catholic Gentlemen at what can be a tense but necessary event.  It is only fair to let you know that Planned Parenthood has counter rallies planned at the same time.  Our participation and prayers are desperately needed to protect the unborn and those mothers considering abortion.
It is important to review and follow the guidelines contained so we conduct our Rally without reproach for our actions.  We will have many of the Knights "Protect Life" posters available.  These will be led by members of the Protect Life community.
Below is the information for the Tempe Rally and attached is the information about the Glendale Rally,
Saturday - Planned Parenthood Tempe Health Center.  We will pray on the public sidewalk in front of PP from 9 to 11 a.m. The clinic is on the NW corner of Apache Blvd and Dorsey Lane in Tempe.  There is plenty of parking along Dorsey Lane and in the lot behind the shopping center to the North.  
Sunday - Planned Parenthood - Glendale - See attached flyer.
Thank you,
