Knight of the Month: Kerry White: Brother Kerry has continued to serve our parish and our council in many ways during his membership in our parish. He is currently serving as a lector for the church. He’s done many duties for the Knights, including Grand Knight. Just recently, Kerry led a team of Knights to install about 250 flags on the church grounds to commemorate the many fallen heroes for the Memorial Day weekend.
Godspeed with your new parish. They will be lucky to have both of you as parishioners, Kerry and Rebecca.
Family of the Month: Mark and Jill Russell: This couple has been serving the parish and the Knights and the Ladies ever since they came to the parish. They’ve participated with their grandchildren in the youth programs. When it became apparent that churches needed to make their environments safer, Mark stepped up and led the Life Safety Team. Jill also led the Ladies Aux., and as a couple they led past fish fries. Mark participated in a few council positions as an officer, and most recently guided our council to a deal with the church to improve our facilities. Thank you, Mark and Jill, for all you do. I’m sure you will do great things in your new parish.

I regret to inform you that Fr. Paul Wicker passed to the Lord this morning at about 7 a.m. Many in the Diocese knew Fr. Paul and he was beloved by all. Please say a prayer and keep in tune for the Funeral Mass announcement.
This month our council is recognizing Worthy Guard Gary Munda. Gary works as a hospitality minister at Saturday 4:30 Masses. In doing this he promotes the Knights and our council by wearing our council long sleeved green shirt. Gary is very cordial to all who enter the church building, making a good impression for himself, our council, and the Knights of Columbus. Gary also readily helps and is highly visible when serving with the OLP Life Safety Team and performing Sacristan duties.

Letter from Colorado State Deputy:
Letter from Supreme Knight:
Joe Graff. Our Deputy Grand Knight produced and hosted four Into the Breach Retreats, during the months of November, January, February and March. These retreats, sponsored by the Knight’s of Columbus, offered men both spiritual and practical guidance to be leaders of faith in their families and communities.
We’re encouraging all to wear our distinctive OLP apparel when participating in parish activities. We only have a limited supply in our current inventory. Additionally, Joe Graff (NORTHWESTCONSULTING@MSN.COM), is collecting interest in those wanting jackets, polos, or long sleeve shirts. He’ll obtain quotes before finalizing purchases.
Knight of the Month: Deacon Bill Bollwerk: Deacon Bill has been a supporter of the Knights of Columbus for a long time. He has regularly attended our monthly council meetings as the chaplain’s representative. He keeps us in tune with the Pastor’s intentions and provide valuable insight into the upcoming events and opportunities to provide assistance to our parish community. He also serves as a liaison with the staff to facilitate support for parish activities.

Both Bryan and Amanda have volunteered many hours with the parish youth ministry program. Bryan is also the operations director for the Rampart H.S. band.
