Our Biggest Fundraiser of the Year is Coming Up — and We Need Your Help!

We will have our Fourth of July Auction (we’ll give you three guesses when, but you’ll only need one) and we desperately need help in obtaining donation items that we can auction off.  Below is a wish list of some things that that would be great to have.  Don’t limit your thinking to just this, though.  Be creative and contact Rafael Fierro (214-675-3162, fierroclan8@gmail.com) with your thoughts or questions.

Novena for National Unity

From Knights of Columbus Supreme Council:

As America prepares to welcome a new president, the Knights of Columbus is urging its members and other Catholics to pray the Novena for National Unity fromThursday, Jan. 12, through Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20. The prayer invokes the maternal intercession of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the United States.

In announcing the days of prayer, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson noted:

From its earliest days, the Knights of Columbus has been an organization that is dedicated to both faith and patriotism. This novena provides Knights, and all Catholics, the opportunity to serve their country in a faithful way by bringing unity in values and faith in a way that overcomes any political divisions. Our country is strongest when it is unified, and that unity is strongest when it is shaped by the timeless values of our faith.
We ask all Catholics to pray this Novena for National Unity, beginning on Thursday, Jan. 12, and concluding on Friday, Jan. 20.

The prayer can be found here.
