Aaron Rohmer – October 2017

Aaron was inducted into the council in October. The Cedar Hill resident didn’t take the typical path to joining our ranks. A council member usually identifies a likely candidate while attending Mass or being involved in some sort of service to Holy Spirit Parish. In Aaron’s case, he didn’t require any prompting, any invitation. He…

St. Joseph’s Residence cookout – Fall 2017

Service to our Catholic community was on display on Saturday, Oct. 14, when more than a dozen Council 8157 members prepared and served what has become the annual fall luncheon to about 100 residents, relatives and staff members of the St. Joseph’s Residence home in Oak Cliff that’s operated by the Diocese of Dallas. Richard Hohman,…

Family of the Month – October 2017

James and Judy Smith It only appears that James and Judy Smith devote all of their free time to activities related to the Knights of Columbus and other Holy Spirit ministries. James became the council’s treasurer in July, adding that to his duties as a member of the baseball and football youth sports concessions operations….

Knight of the Month – October 2017

Jesse Radillo If you saw Jesse flipping burgers during the parish’s fall festival, you probably didn’t recognize him as a man playing with pain. Three broken ribs, to be exact. That happened when he was helping a contractor work on a porch at his Duncanville home and he slipped off a ladder. “It hurts when…

Holy Trinity Seminary Cookout Fall 2017

As long time supporters of the religious vocations our council sponsors two Seminarians via our MVP program at Holy Trinity Seminary in Dallas. But twice during the year the council also provides a full meal for the seminarians and those occasions usually turn into relaxing outdoor picnics and movie night events. This past Saturday was no exception…

Fall Festival 2017

s the Fall Festival for Holy Spirit Catholic Church kicked off again this past September 23-24th, early on Saturday morning Rod Kinard and Jorge Barragan could finally breathe a huge sigh of relief. Their largely behind-the-scenes efforts serving as Operations Committee Co‐Chairs began early in June but now they could finally sit back and for a…

Lecture No. 49 – October 2017

A few weeks ago, I was on a tour of Ireland. Now, I’m not going to take up your time telling you all about the tour. I’ll save that for next month. I returned home to news that is, to me, grossly confusing. My trip began about a week after Harvey had devastated southeast Texas….

Elvis Fajardo – September 2017

Elvis Fajardo, who joined our council in September, was in the middle of a job transfer from New Orleans to Dallas during the late summer of 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck the gulf coast. He and his family technically weren’t evacuees in making their move to north Texas, but they experienced hardships nonetheless related to…

PIP Days Fence Project

Our council was again invited to participate in a PIP Days project spearheaded by the First United Methodist Church in Duncanville on September 29-30, 2017. The project we undertook was a complete backyard fence replacement at 1622 Shannon Drive at the home of Fernando Gomez and family. PIP Days which stands for Property Improvement Projects is a community…

Lecture No. 48 – September 2017

For almost 30 years, whenever the reader began, “A reading from the Book of Jeremiah,” I would look to the lady sitting next to me in choir and whisper, “Jeremiah was a bullfrog.” She would reply, “was a good friend of mine.” And together we would finish with, “I never understood a single word he…

Family of the Month – September 2017

Allen and Linda Reitmeier KC “business” for Allen and Linda Reitmeier extends well beyond what we’re become so familiar with through the years – primarily, the extensive time and energy devoted to overseeing our youth baseball concession stands in Cedar Hill and the Knights Hands program that Allen started in 2010 with 250 jobs completed…

Knight of the Month – September 2017

Jim Russell Jim recently began his fifth fraternal year as the council’s Lecturer, a position that had stood vacant for years before he responded to an invitation from Andy Goza. He puts great time and effort into each talk. No topic is really off limits, except maybe politics. Jim favors history, ancestry and patriotism. Some…

Family of the Month – August 2017

Russell and Tricia Gully Don’t look now, but another Gully is headed to the University of Texas. This is the youngest of the three Gully daughters, Rachel, who was Bishop Dunne’s salutatorian for the 2016-17 school year. She follows Monica (who recently received her MBA from UT and lives in nearby Pflugerville with husband Paul,…
