Pat Stepniewski

Health Activities Director

Pat Stepniewski has been handling health related issues for the Council for many years.  The most visible manifestation of his dedication to health and the welfare of the community is his work in scheduling and coordinating the bi-annual Bea Bates Memorial blood drive.  During this blood drive held in the dining room of the community center, Carter Blood Care receives the gift of life from more than 130 people annually. In addition, Pat secures tickets and makes all arrangements for the Knights and their families to attend a Texas Rangers baseball game each year at a reduced price - and as a group.


The nearest Carter Blood Care Donor Center to Holy Spirit Catholic Church is in Cedar Hill.
NOTE: If you wish to go there to donate blood, the number to the right will identify you as a member of our church:
