Cenacolo visit report fropm Craig Preibe
SK Craig Preibe has submitted a report on the trip by a group of Knights and friends to Communita Cenacolo to deliver all the foodstuffs, cleaning and hygiene products and to participate in the Communita's Mass and Celebration of the Feast of St. Joseph.
SKs Joe McCarty, Paul Shupe, Ronnie Rickabaugh, Ronnie's wife, Linda, and Craig met on the lower level of St. John's at 8 AM to load up Ronnie's pickup with all the goodies. I estimate we had somewhere between 800-1000 pounds that completely filled the bed of his truck as well as the backseat of his cab. Then, we caravanned down to Cenacolo, getting there in plenty of time to unload everything before their planned Mass, entertainment and luncheon. In addition to those mentioned above, we were met at Cenacolo by SK Andy Haq, his wife, Manita, and SK Mike Mitchell.
Bishop Raica and Bishop Emeritus Baker celebrated the Mass indoor due to the cool weather, along with a Monsignor and a Priest from the Chicago area.SK Joe McCarty had the foresight to bring the St. Joseph Icon along, which we set up on display in the main room. Bishop Raica acknowledged the St. John's Council during his Homily for the appropriateness of having the Icon present. Following the Mass, the men and women in the program each presented a short, moving and meaningful entertainment program in the courtyard. Lunch was served after the entertainment program.
There were around 100 benefactors and program participants in attendance. Jason and all the men and women were very appreciative of the providence we delivered and for the Icon display.
We also thank Ladies' Auxiliary members Linda Rickabaugh and Manita Haq for joining us on the trip.
