Bo Carey

It is with great pleasure we recognize Bo Carey as our July 2015 Knight of the Month.
Bo, who was recently elected an officer in our council as Recorder, has long been involved with Parish activities. You can usually find him playing an instrument with the choir, or performing with his band at our social functions. Few people know of his unselfish and generous contributions to our fund raisers, and people in need. Bo recently showed his generosity by making it possible for us to procure a double settee for Fr. Antonio, our past Associate Pastor. Those working the project acknowledged his generosity and Fr. Antonio’s pleasure when it was delivered.
Bo Carey most deserves his selection as the July 2015 Knight of the Month.

Dennis Preston

“If you want something done, ask a busy person” is an old saying that rings true with Dennis Preston. Like the commercial of the “Eveready Bunny” this knight is always in motion. He seems to have the knack to volunteer for the tough jobs. The council received a recent request to provide support to the wife of an incapacitated brother knight. The house and grounds were in complete disrepair at a time in which she is trying to sell the house. Dennis was asked to take the lead in forming a team that would investigate and make repairs. His team comprised of approximately thirteen people which included nine knights, three non-knights and one lady. He assigned taskings as well as accomplished considerable work himself. Our brother Knight and his wife are ecstatic with the effort put forth by this team due to Dennis’ leadership abilities.
It is an honor to select Dennis Preston as the Knight of the Month for June 2015.

David Breen

David Breen is ever present in supprt of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church and the upkeep of the facilities and campus. He possesses a thorough knowledge of the Parish's electrical, water works, and structure construction. He is a tresured asset to the maintenance and well being of our church. David's involvement and knowledge, alone, has saved the Parish incomparable dollars that would have to be paid for an outside source to research, analyze, and make repairs. He has the St. Thomas "blueprint" in his head.
