Learn about Christopher Columbuis - more than sound bites

Columbus day is this month. 

The attached video, provides a clear and powerful rebuke to the pernicious narratives being spread about Christopher Columbus.  Special St. Francis tidbit, Christoper Columbus became a third order Franciscan. 

You will be likely surprised by what you see, and how history has been in some cases distorted.

Signups for RE Traffic control by school - need 2 for each week

Brother Knights;

Please use the SIgn Up Genius link  to volunteer for the school traffic control. 

 

What is involved,

One person at each end of the sidewalk in front of the school.  You keep traffic moving, parents are supposed to park cars in the lot and walk the kids in, Middle school kids can walk themselves in.  No cars (except handicap or Emergency vehicles) go down the drive in front of the school. Be there by 9:00, it is mostly over by 9:30, when RE starts.

 

Based on the first week, most people got the message and do what is required.  We had to tell a couple of people and it was no problem, all smiles.

 

We have safety vests for this.


Thanks Dan Sullivan, event chair.
