We are all aware of, and dealing with, the current health crisis. We cannot predict when it will be declared safe to go back
to our normal lives. Please pray for all those affected. Keep in mind all health care providers, and first responders, who
put themselves in jeopardy to protect all of us.
There is also an economic crisis, within our beloved Church. Because Masses have been canceled beyond Easter, donations have
plummeted! Consider enrolling in Faith Direct; wherein regular and Holy Day donations are automatically paid, either from
a checking account or credit card. If you can’t do that, please mail or drop off your donations to the Church.
Our Council meeting scheduled for April 7th, and our participation in Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, are OFF! Our April
21st meeting may also be in jeopardy. We will resume normal activities, once the “stay home” directive is lifted.
Until then, information about the Council will be updated on our website and through e-mails. Program Directors and Chairmen
are asked to contact the Tidings Editor, or me, with information to be distributed to the membership.
There is also GOOD NEWS!
1) Our Global Wheelchair Mission weekend took in over $2100. Thank you to all our volunteers and donors.
2) We celebrated our first Exemplification of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity on March 15th. Three new members and three other
members completed their 3RD degrees. Congratulations to all! Pictures can be seen on our Facebook page.
3) NEWSDAY featured our future home, the World War Veterans building, in an article, February 28th. The Home Association continues
to move forward toward completion of the lease agreement.
Leadership positions within the Council need to be filled. Speak to Nominations Committee Chairman Mike Hearney, if you are
planning to be considered for office.
Until we see each other, remember the healing power of prayer, and have faith in the Great Healer, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
