Knights Knews – 8/18/19

The Knights had their Summer Picnic at Lakeside Resort in Ionia. Mike & Barb McClain did a great job of organizing, cooking and running this event. We had a huge pavilion. We were right next to the lake and what a beautiful scene. The kids had a ball camping, fishing and swimming. What a peaceful time of relaxing and slowing things down. Mike did a great job, and we can’t wait until next year!

Last week I had said the Knights were switching gears for our big event, the Beer & Wine Tasting & Silent Auction. We need your help with donations for the Silent Auction. Our goal is to raise $25,000.00. The funds raised will go towards the Our Shepherd/Our Future Diocese Campaign. We also will have money go to other Knights charities. PLEASE, PLEASE help us help them. Tickets are on sale after Mass for the Beer & Wine at only $15.00 each. If you wait they are $25.00 at the door. I can’t promise there will be tickets left!

I often think and wonder. When Jesus was raised from the dead, He promised his disciples that they would receive power when the Holy Spirit came on them. They would have healing power. How cool would that be??? What would we do with this power??? I bet we wouldn’t let our dads, moms, brothers, sisters or kids suffer from cancer or any other terrible disease. Wouldn’t that be AWESOME????? The funny thing is, God has given US ALL that Power. God has given us his word, the Bible. God talks to us everyday. Are we listening??? Is God calling you to take that next step??? God’s power can’t be bought. Grace is not for sale. The Peace of God be with each and everyone of us as we serve our Lord and his Church and our St. Sebastian family.
