Message from the Grand Knight
Please volunteer for the festival. We need your help on Sunday June 11th from noon to 8:00 p.m. Any amount of time you can donate is appreciated! The Knights are in charge of Bingo and selling pickles. Please let me know if you are able to help.
Mrs. Mulick and Mrs. Gillespie retired this year, and each was given a scrip gift certificate from the Knights for their passion and love they showed while teaching the kids!
Christians Encounter Christ (CEC) is modeled after the Cursillo. It was founded in Majorca, Spain by a group of laymen in 1944, while they were refining a technique to train pilgrimage Christian leaders. The CEC formed its own retreat plan approved by Archbishop Lucas. It is only a 2 & 1/2 day retreat and the cost is $80.00. The Men's weekend is October 20-22, 2017; the Women's is November 3-5 2017. The weekends do fill up fast and there is a limit of 20-25 candidates. Please let me know if you are interested or know of anyone interested in attending the retreat.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday June 13th at 7:30 p.m.

Festival on June 11
Remember that our parish festival is on Sunday, June 11. We extend a big “Thank You” to those who have volunteered to help. Please come to the festival, enjoy the festivities, and help raise some needed funds for our parish.
This is a reminder that our July meeting and family potluck will be on the third Tuesday (July 18) in order to avoid a conflict with the Totus Tuus program which will be using the social hall during the second week of July.
Mother’s Day Flower Sale
We thank all those who bought roses or simply donated money to the Essential Pregnancy Services Mother’s Day rose sale. The generosity of Knights and fellow parishioners brought in a total of $665. EPS is most grateful for this support of their mission to protect precious babies, born and unborn.
Priest Appreciation Steak Fry
The annual Priest Appreciation Steak Fry, hosted by the Father Michael P Dowling Assembly, will be on Monday, July 31, at Mount Michael Abbey in Elkhorn. The meal price is $20, and our Council will reimburse $10 to every member who attends. This great meal and event is for Knights only.
The essay contest we conducted to determine recipients for our Council scholarships resulted in these two winners:
$1,000 – Audrey Downing (Duchesne Academy)
$500 – Marissa Vargas (Mercy High School)
Congratulations to Audrey and Marissa.
