PAY YOU DUES ONLINE
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
On July 4th, we celebrate our Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident," the words our founding fathers wrote. Also, in the Declaration of Independence are the words, "that all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, like Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
It is the responsibility of our country to continue to maintain and safeguard these rights. Lately, our country has undergone many trials and difficulties, It is so important that all of us continue to maintain the God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The prophet Amos from the Old Testament wrote, "You alone have I favored, more that all the families of the earth." If we listen hard enough, we might also hear those same words today. We have been given much and we much never let a day pass without praying for the preservation of our Land. Happy 4th of July to all of you, your loved ones, may you have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
I would like to take this opportunity to expresses my thanks to Kevin, our faithful navigator, and all the officers of the Assembly for their hard work this year. It wasn't easy, but they were able to accomplish what was needed. As we begin a new year, let us continue to pledge our support to the new officers and to help our Assembly to grow in faith and charity.
Just a note that even though I am retiring as of June 30th, I will continue for the next year to remain as your chaplain. I will do my best to make some meetings, especially when the weather is fine. I'm looking forward seeing all of you, this pandemic has really curtailed many activities and gatherings. Until we meet again, please know that you and your loved ones are always in my prayers.
With grateful appreciation,
