Arizona Knights Announce New State Pin

Saint Paul Street Evangelization Moves Detroit

Br Ed Graveline went to Detroit the week of June 3-9 to attend the "Immersion" conference with St. Paul Street Evangelization.  Not only did they have training on evangelization, but they also had a night where people from Encounter came in and prayed over the group with the Blessed Sacrament exposed.   It was one Holy Spirit night!  People were healed of crippled broken bones and blindness!

On Saturday night they did what is known as a “Night Fever” where we were in a high foot traffic area where a magnificent church was located, (Old St. Mary’s in Greektown).  It was built in 1893 and it did the evangelizing for them!   That Church was magnificently beautiful!!!  They gave people candles to light in the church and they had teams of people in five areas.  Br Ed was out getting the people to come in with 11 others and then we passed them off to the “Greeters” who took them to light the candle and evangelized them, and then to the Blessed Sacrament (we explained what it was) and then to the prayer team who prayed over them, then to the Kerygma team who gave them a Rosary, Medal and brochures about the Catholic Church.  They had a team praying for all of the SPSE team the entire time too.  This event occurred right after Mass.   It was amazing seeing people crying while being prayed over and asking about the statues and beauty of the Church.  A few of the healings occurred that night.  
 
One of the special things they did was when the people were on the way out, they were taken to a small passageway where they encountered a life-size statues of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, giving them a sense of closeness.  Our ministry is blessed with ardent evangelizers.  Anyone can join if they are moved to do so.  You know what Jesus said - go out to all the corners of the world.  Learn more at https://streetevangelization.com/

  

 
 
 

Gold Star Family Memorial Funding Drive

Brothers and family of Bishop Salpointe Council joined with St Andrew the Apostle Parishioners to raise $13,000 in support of the Gold Star Family Memorial to be built at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery.  The memorial will be dedicated in October 2019.

Brother Knights Bryant Sayers and Larry Powers solicited donations from council members and parishioners.  Individual donation of $100 or more earned a challenge coin in the shape of the memorial.  

The Council had already pledged $1,000 of the council funds, and hoped to unite individual Knights donations to reach $5,000 contribution by Knights towards the joint pledge from the Council and Parish of $10,000.  Obviously, that goal was exceeded!  A $1,000 donation will earn the individual or the organization their name on a plaque at the memorial site.  

                                                                          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
