Help for Father Chad

Wednesday, September 17, 2014


I little while back when we met with Father Chad, in our conversation he asked the Knights for some help, some of those requests have already been conveyed however one request was for support of projects around the campus of Corpus Christi.

Specifically the church in need of repairs such as HVAC units (A/C), church sound system,  bathroom repair, Parish hall ; carpet, lighting, kitchen etc... Father Chad was not necessarily looking for cash donations, although always welcome, but help in the form of trades or connection to trades.

So Brothers, if you are the in trades field or have connections in such and feel they may be helpful in completing one or more of the aforementioned projects or would like to have more details, please contact either Steve or Carol, listed below and mention this email.

Vivat Jesus!

Open Adoration Hour

Tuesday, September 16, 2014
We have an urgent need of adorations to be filled!  I know many of you regularly attend an adoration hour or two, however some spots go unfilled.  Brother Dave coordinates adoration hour and has several hours open, they are some of the more challenging hours to fill (see below).  If you are unable to commit to every week maybe a pooling plan can work i.e. once per month ,rotating with three other Knights.
Please contact Dave to discuss:
or at :  480-460-4134

Doug, here is the list of hours that we need help on.  I know a lot of Knights are doing hours but maybe there are some who would like to take these early morning hours:
Sunday: 5 AM
Monday: 2 AM and 3 AM
Saturday: 7 PM and 8 PM
Maybe on Saturday we can get four men to take one hour each week.
Also, one of our goals is to have prayer partners for each hour, so ask if Knights will consider taking any hour.
Remember Jesus never asked anything of his Apostles except that they watch with Him for one Hour.
Please have any responses sent to me.
Thanks for your help.

PWID - Sept 26-28

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Our annual PWID Tootsie Roll Drive is coming up September 26-28. With this event, we raise money for both Special Olympics and Down Syndrome Network of Arizona. As Knights, we uphold the belief that all life is valuable from the moment of conception through natural death. Both organizations that we raise money for with this event also upholds these same values.

I am looking for some help for the PWID. There are 2 types of help I need:
  1. I need someone to help co-chair this event. It is a fairly easy event to run, and I will provide direction on what is needed. Reply to me if you are interested.
  2. We need some volunteers! The time slots are listed below. For each time slot, it is very easy work: stand in front of a store and collect money for 2 very important causes. They are in 2 hour shifts. If you have kids or grandkids that need service hours, this is perfect opportunity for them!
Shifts Available:
1-3: 4 people
3-5: 5 people
5-7: 6 people
9 – 11: 1 person
11-1: 5 people
1-3: 6 people
3-5: 6 people

KC Golf Meeting Thursday

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

The last Golf Meeting of 2014 (actually we shouldn't say that since there will most likely be a recap meeting) will be this Thursday 9/11 at 7pm in the PARISH CENTER.
The final touches will be wrapped up for this Saturday's (9/13) tournament.  Don't miss out on one of the top 1000 meetings of the year!  Meeting critics alike have been universal with their praised. . . . Bill exclaimed "Did you say free "refreshments" and pretzels?? " . . .  Doug asked "Do you think they will listen to me if I get a Highlander?" . . . Nick added "Is this the meeting for the Hawaiian cruise?" . . .  Bob cried out " Another meeting – oh Boy, I'll come if I can ride my bike !" . . .  Richard inquired "How many spreadsheets should I bring"   . . .  Dennis shrieked "Happy Dance" . . .   and Tom explained "I think we can eliminate the actual golfers with a virtual game" . . . and the list of rave reviews goes on and on.
Come see what everyone is talking about!
