Family of the Month – February 2015



Tom Greco and Helen Beggane

tom-helen-greco-2013Tom and Helen, who will celebrate their 40th anniversary in April, have been Holy Spirit parishioners since July 1982. They are familiar faces in the choir at 5:30 Mass on Saturdays, and Tom also serves as a lector. Tom and Helen each started out in Baltimore but didn’t know each other there. Each moved to Philadelphia but didn’t meet there. Each wound up in Omaha, Neb., where they finally met and were married. Tom joined the Knights in November 2007 and took his major degree two months later. He’s in his first year as the council’s Chancellor, serves as the membership director and has headed up 8157’s first-degree team since its inception in August 2012. He was honored as the council’s Knight of the Year in July 2014 and wanted to hand the celebratory bowl around the banquet room to share with each Brother Knight present. Tom works for the City of Duncanville as a senior code enforcement officer. Helen works for Dr. Bill Dover, who happened to be the council’s membership director when Tom joined 8157.
