Kathy Pawlik, Wife of Bob Pawlik

She was diagnosed with leukemia and starts chemotherapy today and it will destroy all the blast cells. The chemotherapy will last for 7 days round the clock, then they wait seven days more and do a bone marrow biopsy. Then we wait again to see if the bone marrow is healthy and producing mature cells.

Please pray for Kathy.

THERE IS A LOT HAPPENING AT YOUR COUNCIL IN THE COMING MONTHS. WE HAVE MADE DOUBLE STAR COUNCIL FOR THIS YEAR AND ARE RAPIDLY APPROACHING TRIPLE STAR COUNCIL. THE STATE KNOWS WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE ARE DOING. DURING THE PAST FEW MONTHS I WAS APPROACHED BY MARILYN AT ST RENE’S THAT SHE HAD RECEIVED A LARGE LOT OF SHOES AND COATS THAT NO ONE WANTED TO USE, SO I CALLED BROTHER FRANCIS AT HOLY CROSS AND HE GLADLY AGREED TO PICK THEM UP AND GIVE THEM TO THE POOR IN DETROIT AND SURROUNDING AREA. WE ARE ON THE TOP OF HIS LIST.

WE HAD SEVERAL MEMBERS AND WIFE'S THAT HAVE LEFT US AND I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE MEMBERS THAT SHOWED UP AND HELP WITH THE ROSARIES. THIS IS THE LEAST WE CAN DO FOR A PST MEMBER OR HIS WIFE. WE HAVE HAD TO QUITE A FEW OF THESE IN THE PAST FEW YEARS. I GUESS THAT COMES WITH US BEING AN OLDER COUNCIL.

WE HAD A SUCCESSFUL POLISH NIGHT THAT BROUGHT OUT A FEW MEMBERS THAT HELPED AND I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THEM OUT, THANK YOU BOB AND STEVE KRANSON FOR YOUR HELP ON THAT DAY. WE NEED MORE MEMBERS TO TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLL OF HELPING OUT AT THESE EVENTS. THEY ARE A WAY FOR US TO MAKE MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR CHARITABLE WORKS. SOME ASK WHAT CHARITABLE WORKS? WE HAVE GONE DOWN TO DETROIT TO PUT ON A FULL MEAL FOR THE HOMELESS AND POOR IN THE SPRINGWELLS/I94 AREA. I WISH MORE MEMBERS COULD HAVE GONE WITH US TO SEE THAT WHAT WE DO DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE'S LIFE. IT WAS ONLY A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS AND HALF A DAY OF WORK TO DO THIS BUT IT WAS VERY SATISFYING.

WE HAVE A CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE DINNER COMING UP NEXT MONTH THE COST $12/PERSON AND FEW HOURS OF YOUR TIME. HELP US MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL EVENT. I WILL BE OPENING IT UP TO THE PARISH, SO YOUR HELP WILL BE NEEDED.

WE ARE ALSO RUNNING THE KITCHEN FOR THE CHILI COOK OFF AT ST RENE’S ON FEB 28. BOB WILL NEED YOUR HELP THAT EVENING. IT WILL START AFTER 4:00 PM MASS. LAST YEAR EVERYONE HAD A GOOD TIME AND THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO COMING AGAIN THIS YEAR. THE MEN’S CLUB WILL RUN THE HALL AND THE KNIGHTS WILL RUN THE KITCHEN. PLEASE HELP.

ELECTIONS ARE COMING UP VERY QUICKLY. WE NEED A DEPUTY GRAND KNIGHT AND A TREASURER. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY OF THE POSITIONS.

PLEASE LET ME OR JIM W. KNOW.

A SPIRITUAL VITAMIN B-12 SHOT

Recently, I met a friend who I have not seen in many years. Somehow, we got on the topic of discussing the Sacraments. He mentioned that he feels he is a Catholic in good standing, yet he does not go to Mass regularly and goes to general (public) confession once a year for his spiritual “car wash”. Sadly, this is an attitude many of our own family members and friends are adopting. Dear Brother Knights and family members, the following is what Jesus personally conveyed to St. Faustina about the Sacrament of (private) Confession , taken from her “DIARY”: (pg. 512, entry #1448, year 1937)

“Write, speak of My mercy. Tell souls where they are to look for solace; that is, in the Tribunal of Mercy (the Sacrament of Reconciliation). There the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated. To avail oneself of this miracle, it is not necessary to go on a pilgrimage or to carry out some external ceremony; it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative (priest) and to reveal to him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine Mercy will be fully demonstrated. Were a soul like a decaying corpse so that from a human standpoint there would be no hope of restoration and everything would be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full. Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God’s mercy! You will call out in vain, but it will be too late.”

Generous and serious words to ponder!

Deputy Grand Knight

Membership Report

Our Membership Goals for the year of Eleven New Members has been met, Hooray for us and the Council. This could not have happen without the efforts of our Membership, so pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Remember asking a Catholic to join the Order is all I ask, we have to continue to replace ourselves to assure that the Council flourishes. For us to continue the work we do ,we need Catholic Gentleman ,because each new Member allows us to make a difference, so make that difference, and ask someone to join.
