The 'Word' from our Sponsor

 Almighty and Everlasting God,
You have given the human race
Jesus Christ our Savior as a model of humility.
He fulfilled Your Will by becoming Man
And giving His life on the Cross.
Help us to bear witness to You
By following His example of suffering
And make us worthy to share in His Resurrection.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.

Did you hear the one ...
Submitted by a Brother Knight...

Q:Did you know there was a virgin birth in the Old Testament?

A: Joshua. Son of none.
