Family of the Month – June 2014


Pat and Betty May

Pat and Betty MayThe recent 40th anniversary of Holy Spirit parish sparked a memory in Pat. The Mays lived in Oak Cliff, behind Bishop Dunne, when Holy Spirit was officially formed early in 1974. Pat was involved in the usher program at St. Elizabeth’s. “Before Holy Spirit started, you couldn’t find a seat,” Pat said. “After that, it was far different.” The Mays relocated to Duncanville in 1997 and joined Holy Spirit. Pat joined the Knights that same year. Fr. Timothy Heines asked Pat to head up the ushers program, which he did until just recently. Pat has been the council director for church activities for almost 15 years. He is from Chicago and met Betty, from Dallas, when he was in the U.S. Air Force stationed in Wichita Falls in 1948. They have four grown children. Betty was one of the founding members of Holy Spirit’s Catholic Daughters of the Americas chapter.
