New Knights
Let us welcome our newest brother Knight, Eduardo Garcia !!! Eduardo joined us via a video ceremony last Sunday. He goes to St. Michael and is and active member of the Hispanic Ministry.

Be sure to say hello and introduce yourself when you see him at church, hopefully soon!

Let us also extend a belated welcome to another brother Knight, Richard Fryar . Richard joined the Order online way back in August. Due to a mistake on the Grand Knight's part, he was added to the roster without going through the normal transfer process. We are in the process of correcting that now but nonetheless, Welcome Brother Richard!
Fr. John Transferring In
As most of you know, Fr. John Pietruszka joined St. Michael as the Parochial Vicar last month. Now, he is joining our Council too. Fr. John is a 4th Degree Knight.

Just as a formality, let us cast our vote to approve Fr. John's transfer into our Council.
Do you support the transfer of Fr. John Pietruszka into our council?
Corporal Ken Logsdon Memorial Scholarship
Last month, a group of Knights reviewed the applications for the Cpl. Ken Logsdon Memorial Scholarship from Veteran students at Las Positas College.

Oratio Imperata
Prayer for Protection Against COVID-19
God our Father,
We come to you in our need
To ask your protection against the COVID-19 Virus,
That has claimed lives and has affected many.

We pray for your grace
For the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
Of this virus and its disease
And of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
That they may minister to the sick
With competence and compassion,
And of those governments and private agencies
That must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

We pray for those afflicted
May they be restored to health soon.

Grant us the grace
To work for the good of all
And to help those in need.

Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen. 
In our prayers

... for an end to violence, looting and unrest currently happening in our country.
... for Lady Nora Taranowski as she fights through a recurrence of an old illness.
... for brother Knight Calvin Gillespie who is currently undergoing cancer treatment.
... for Lady Cyndi Keifer, wife of brother Pat Keifer, who was diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing chemo treatments.
... for an end to the pandemic.
... for the safety and health of our families.
... for the safety of all medical professionals and in gratitude to their service to COVID-19 patients.
