Merry and Blessed Christmas to you and your loved ones!!!

Brothers,
               Warm wishes for a blessed Christmas day and joyous New Year from the Sullivan Family (Elaine, Theresa and me). 

I wish to share with you one of my favorite Christmas stories:

               "One Solitary Life"
"He Was born in an obscure village.
He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty.
He then became an itinerant preacher.
He never held an office.
He never had a family or owned a house.
He didn't go to college.
He had no credentials but himself…
 
Twenty centuries have come and gone,
And today He is the central figure of the human race.
All the armies that ever marched, and all the navies that ever sailed,
All the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned
Have not effected the life of man on this earth as much as that…
ONE SOLITARY LIFE."
 
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!
 
Vivat Jesus,

Pope Francis Documentary

Dear Brother Knight:

Pope Francis has captured the imagination of the world. His is the most searched-for name on the internet. He is the most talked about person on Facebook. And he's TIME's Person of the Year.

But who is Pope Francis? Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?

As you know, the Knights of Columbus has worked to bring Pope Francis and his message to the world in a variety of ways. Now, our documentary film on his life is available on DVD.

Francis: The Pope From the New World is available at Amazon.com. The hour-long film traces the remarkable rise of our new Holy Father and features interviews from around the world, with close friends, fellow priests, co-workers, his biographer and the poor of Buenos Aires.

Whether you want to give this as a Christmas gift or order it for your personal or family collection, this documentary will help those who watch it to learn even more about our pope and how to answer his call to increase our faith in service to God and neighbor.     

Any profits made by K of C from this film will be donated to Pope Francis.

Sincerely,

Knights of Columbus

Help Needed

Brothers,
 
We have a few Knights from our council already signed up for this Thursday 12/12 (1-6pm shift) for the Habitat for Humanity build in Scottsdale – Thank You!  There is still a need for nearly 30 more volunteers on this day to keep the project on schedule. I believe the goal is to have the families in their homes by Christmas!  If by chance you can spare 6 ½ hours (5hrs working and 90 minute drive -round trip) this Thursday I understand this counts as "Bonus Points" when St. Peter meets us at the pearly gates.

Habitat for Humanity and Scottsdale Blitz Project

Brothers,
 
The Season of Giving has just begun!  What better way to prepare ourselves for the birth of Christ by helping those less fortunate.  Habitat of Humanity needs help to construct low income housing in Scottsdale.  No construction skills necessary (but helpful) as there are a variety of jobs.   If you, your family (over 18 years of age) or friends would like to volunteer, the council is focusing on the following available days below.  There are a few other days & times, though we would like to participate as a group as much as possible.
 
Thursday, 12/5 from 1-6pm (need 14 volunteers)  . . . done in time for our Council meeting
Friday, 12/6 from 1-6pm (need 18 volunteers)  . . . done in time for happy hour
Thursday, 12/12 from 1-6pm (need 33 volunteers)
WHERE: The address of this project is 7220 & 7224 E Belleview St, Scottsdale, AZ.  The major crossroads are Scottsdale Rd and McDowell Rd. 
Kindly contact me ASAP at bdrummey@cox.net or 480-460-2721.  You can sign up yourself through the link below, yet please verify with me as we would like to carpool from church.  More questions?  Just give me a call.
 
Merry Christmas!
Vivat Jesus!
