GK's Message
Brother Knights,

I hope this note finds you and your families in good health.

I would like to thank all brothers who answered the call to help the St. Charles parishioner who asked for help last week. In hindsight, I did not handle that request in the most efficient manner. I should have known better that there will be several brothers who will reach out to me and Jim Oliver to assist.

Going forward, I would like to form a team of volunteers who will be tasked to field future requests that we might get from parishioners at St. Michael and St. Charles. If you are willing to help, please email me at or reply to this email and I will add you to the list. We will come up with a smaller distribution list and take turns fielding requests.

With the shelter in place order in effect, our Council activities continue to be on hold. The latest event to be postponed is the Bishop's Vocation Dinner. However, as I mentioned last week, opportunities to live out our main principle of charity abound. The following sections of this edition of Knightly News includes a request from St. Michael as well as reminders of services that Fr. Carl and his staff continue to offer. A prayer for protection against COVID-19 is also included.

Let us all continue to pray for an end to this pandemic.

Vivat Jesus!

Anthony R. Contarciego
Grand Knight

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 a quick end to the pandemic
... For the safety and health of our families
... For the healing of all those afflicted by COVID-19
