Dear Brother Knights,
As you know, we are coming to the end of the Easter season in the Church, and we are moving steadily toward summer. The great feast of Pentecost, the birthday of our Church, is just around the corner. We live in the life of the Spirit, and at times we can forget this truth with our crammed schedules and concerns. When we realize this, then it is a good time to take a pause and reflect on this and what it means in my life. The celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation reminds us of this. This sacrament will be celebrated in our cluster on May 24 at 2:00 at St. Joseph’s Church. I want to thank the Fourth Degree Knights for the honour guard.
I want to thank all those who have accepted positions on the executive for this coming year, and thank those who are retiring. We promise our support. I also want to thank you for sponsoring the Walkathon which is coming up on June 14. I hope as many as possible will either walk or sponsor those who are walking. The monies raised from this will go to the restoration fund for St. Joseph’s Church. Let us pray that we have good weather.
I want to end with this reflection from Brendan McConvery “Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, so that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.
Once, again, I want to thank you for all that you do for our church and the wider community.
