Charity

There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.

Unity

Knights banded together can accomplish more
than any of us could accomplish individually
in support of our Church and priests.

Fraternity

Knights socialize together and take care of each other –
we have each others’ back.

Patriotism

Members of the Knights of Columbus are proud
of our devotion to God and country,
and believe in standing up for both.

Saint James says…..

IMG_4669In the readings this past Sunday, St. James says it is not enough to hope those who are in need will find help. It is not ecough even to pray they find help. What we must do is step up and help those in need. That spirit was exemplified this past Wednesday September 16th when 8 Knights of Columbus met at the home of Tissy Godwin to repair a number of items on her home in Ovilla.

Larry Balagna and Ray Rivera replaced rotted soffit and fascia boards. Ken Rarick and Al Evans followed up and caulked and scraped the eaves to prepare for painting. David Dybala and Jim Stavinoha secured the rear door threshold (thank goodness David is an engineer), replaced bottom trim on both sides of the exterior door, installed a door stop, and just generally made the entry pleasing to the eye. While all these activities were going on, Jorge Ruiz and Dan Murphy were installing the baseboard trim in the garage (which has been converted to living space for Tissy’s Daughter).

It is a testament to the determination of the Knights of Columbus that these kinds of projects can be accomplished. Everyone at the job site jumped in and did their part to complete the project. Saint James would have been proud of everyone this past Wednesday morning.
