There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.
Chris can now look into the rear-view mirror at a rare achievement among Holy Spirit parishioners – having served as chairman of the fall festival for three straight years. And that was solo for a job that’s typically been filled by co-chairs. “It’s been very satisfying for a couple of different reasons,” Chris said. Primarily, “seeing the people’s faces and them having fun.” He went on to mention the acceptance of changes that were instituted to assure the event’s continued success. And don’t forget that Chris was part of fall festival operations during the previous 10 years before that, often living in the community center kitchen for days. Chris joined our council in 1997, was chosen as Knight of the Year in 2003 and served as our Grand Knight for the fraternal years 2006-08 (when we got back in the concession stand business). He’s now one of 8157’s trustees. Daughter Jagger, who often helps around the parish, is an eighth grader at Ovilla Christian.
