Good afternoon Brothers,

As we start July and our second full month of Mass Assistance, I wanted to take a quick thank you to all the Brothers volunteering to help the grand re-opening be successful. The Parish Admin and Father Ed are extremely appreciative for the Knights efforts.

Thanks to you Brothers: Jason Williams, John Gomolka, Jaime Vega, Tom Finan, Jude Hodges, Jeff Templeton, Dino DiLella, Jackie Aguilera, Scott O’Connor, Paul Gabe, Mike Ryan, Francois Cardier, Felix Hodges, Mark Erwin, Ken DeBritto, Waldo Persteins, Guillermo Wolf, Jacob Erwin and Esteban Nunez.

As we begin this Independence Day holiday, just a quick reminder to remember those men and women that made our independence possible. Some gave the full measure of sacrifice, and millions have served proudly to keep our Country safe and free.

God Bless America, the greatest Country on God’s green Earth!

Vivat Jesus
