Prayer for the Canonization of
Father Michael J. McGivney


God, our Father, protector of the poor and
defender of the widow and orphan, you called
your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to
be an apostle of Christian family life and to
lead the young to the generous service of their
neighbor. Through the example of his life and
virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ,
more closely, fulfilling his commandment of
charity and building up his Body which is the
Church. Let the inspiration of your servant
prompt us to greater confidence in your love
so that we may continue his work of caring
for the needy and the outcast. We humbly
ask that you glorify your venerable servant
Father Michael J. McGivney on earth
according to the design of your holy will.
Through his intercession, grant the favor I
now present (here make your request).
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Father Hail Mary Glory be to the Father






Dear Brother Knights,


Summer starts on Sunday, June 20th, less than a few weeks away, I can’t wait!

I am very grateful to be a Knight of St. Barnabas Council #8063!   We’ve had a difficult year with the pandemic.  I know it’s hard not to have social gatherings like we had last year, like dances and fundraisers.  I miss them as much as you do, but things are changing.  We are now allowed to remove our masks, if we’re properly vaccinated, and we now have person to person meetings in Brennan Hall once again.  The last get together I remember was “Back ‘n Time” Oldies night in Brennan Hall in the spring of 2020.  It feels like years ago.  Actually it was!


Knight Ronal Rapp


Thanks you for the Knights and their families who came to the Memorial Mass for our departed member, Ronald Rapp on May 29th.  We had about 30 members there! 

I only knew Ron for a short time, but in that short time, I saw that he gave his all for our parish activities, He helped out at Thanksgiving dinners, Project Joy, and KOC events such as Santa Claus and Easter Bunny breakfasts.  Ron also volunteered with the St. Vincent de Paul Society.   He was a great volunteer and a wonderful cheerful man to know.  He was great in the kitchen!  I understand from Mike Testa that he had a passion for fishing as well.


Memorial Day


On May 31st, we honored the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to serve the country in war and peace. Take the time to remember those we lost from the various conflicts our country faces to stem the spread of evil in our world.  As Knights, many of us served our country, some in combat; some will never be the same again, due to war injuries both physical and mental.  We will always remember the struggles we’ve had, but hopefully our families will support us also through our darkest nights...


Covid 19 Vaccine


On another topic, we now have a vaccine for Covid 19, and it’s easier to get an appointment than before. (Either from Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson).  So please get vaccinated, if you haven’t done it already.  There’s no excuse not to.  You can remove your mask in church, if you are vaccinated.




Our Council hosted a Council Picnic on Saturday, June 5th at Whispering Pines Pavillion, Holiday City, Berkley Township.   We enjoyed Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, French Fries and other experimental fare that Allan Huhn planed to feature during the Berkeley Concert Series.  A good time was had by all.


Grand Knight Mike Testa


As Knights, we have to look after each other for now.  As you can see above, Mike is doing all that he can to encourage fellowship and plan for the future.  I think he’d done a great job considering the circumstances of the world right now.  Our Grand Knight, Mike Testa needs your support.


Odd’s ‘n ends


We still need a few volunteers to bring some of our elderly members to church.  Maybe you can afford some time to volunteer to assist in bringing someone to church on Sundays. 


Make prayer a part of your life.  It’s something we can do while we wait for the world to get back in order.  Maybe it’s not going to be the same “in order” that we were used to, but as Knights, we will persevere and spread the Gospel of Jesus, no matter what form it takes.


  Yours in Christ, Deacon Bob
