Knights Escort Most Blessed Sacrament for Corpus Christi Procession

Brother Knights are set to march with canopy over the Most Blessed Sacrament during the upcoming Corpus Christi Procession on June 23rd at 9:00 A.M. immediately after the 8:00 A.M. Mass.  Led by our Associate Chaplain, Fr Rob Neske, the Most Blessed Sacrament will be carried from the main Church to the Divine Mercy Chapel at the rear of the church where it will be venerated during this Feast of Corpus Christi, more formally known as The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.  We celebrate the real presence of the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the elements of the Eucharist which occurs during  transubstantiation.   Each year this popular procession is attended by hundreds of parishioners along with many of the parish ministries.  Scenes from the 2018 procession are shown below.
 
  
 
 

Gold Star Family Memorial Funding Drive

Brothers and family of Bishop Salpointe Council are joining with St Andrew the Apostle Parishioners to raise $10,000 in support of the Gold Star Family Memorial to be build at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Contact Brother Knights Bryant Sayers or Larry Powers to donate.  Individual donation of $100 or more will earn a challenge coin in the shape of the memorial.  If writing a check, make it payable to "The Gold Star Mothers of Cochise County".

The Council has already pledged $1,000 of the council funds, and hopes to unite individual donations to reach $5,000 contribution by Knights towards the joint pledge from the Council and Parish of $10,000.  A $1,000 donation will earn the individual or the organization their name on a plaque at the memorial site.  See Fr Greg's Sunday bulletin notes for more information on the past and current mutual support between our parish and the Catholic Community on Fort Huachuca.

                                                                          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warriors to Lourdes

There is an invisible wound of war that is only beginning to draw public attention. In addition to mental and emotional suffering, moral injury represents the spiritual dimension of trauma.

This important and timely topic is brought to life with searing emotion in Warriors to Lourdes, a new documentary film produced by the Knights of Columbus.

This 28-minute film highlights the transformative experience of the annual Warriors to Lourdes pilgrimage for wounded, ill and injured veterans seeking physical and spiritual healing. Through very personal accounts of men and women in uniform, along with those of military chaplains, the film showcases the life-changing impact of this spiritual pilgrimage. These stories reveal that sometimes the greatest acts of courage occur not on the battlefield but inside the human heart.

Everyday Heroes

Throughout history, humanity has been enthralled by the idea of Heroes. From Hercules to Superman, the heroic narrative in literature, the arts and culture has been passed from one generation to the next.

But heroism is not some unattainable ideal. It is not reserved for only mythology. Heroism is a worthy goal that lies within our grasp.

That is the central message of Everyday Heroes, a new documentary film featuring the witnesses of remarkable Brother Knights whose courage, faith and commitment to charity embody the mission of the Knights of Columbus.

From the college football star who selflessly put the needs of others before his own to the Special Olympics athlete who gives witness to the dignity of all human life — these stories demonstrate how the betterment of our world ultimately begins with the individual human heart.

Catholic Daily Readings
From Our Chaplain

 

As Chaplain of our Council, I often remind our Brother Knights, that the “best possible advertising for the Knights of Columbus. . .are the Knights themselves!” That was certainly the case last Saturday night, when our Bishop Salpointe Council hosted the 29th Annual Catholic Appeal Dinner in Columbian Hall. This annual gift to the Parish – a wonderful meal, served by Knights and their Ladies – has provided the vital “kick-off” for the Appeal, which supports 26 ministries in our Diocese. This was the second year that our new Bishop, Edward Weisenburger, was able to join us for the Mass (with a 4th Degree Honor Guard) and the Dinner following. Looking around the Hall, I could see, standing behind the serving lines, behind the bar, in the kitchen, directing our Confirmation student ‘table servers’, welcoming parishioners – were the KNIGHTS! There simply could not be a better illustration of the vital role of the Knights of Columbus in our Parish. Any Catholic man present could see for himself, the difference that Knights of Columbus make, in building up the life of the Church! Any Catholic man present should have come away with a strong impression of what the Knights are truly about: Faith active in service! I am always proud that I am a Knight, but especially on these occasions – and there are many of them – when our Council provides the leadership needed to make our Parish great! My heartfelt thanks to all of the Brothers and their Ladies, who welcomed our Bishop and our St. Andrew/Good Shepherd parishioners to the best Annual Catholic Appeal ever!
Vivat JESUS!
