Member News
Candidate Vote - Jack Glenn
Jack Glenn wishes to join our Council. Our worthy membership director, Tom McCaffrey, has interviewed Jack and verified his eligibility and would like to do a video first degree on Sunday. Therefore, I am requesting a vote from you...
Candidate Vote
Do you support admission of Jack Glenn to Father Patrick Power Council 4588, Livermore?
Dues Notice Delivery Request
The time for dues notices is approaching. To make sure we direct our dollars to charitable causes, our worthy Financial Secretary, Brian Littrell, and I would like deliver as many notices as possible by email this year. Considering that we have ~400 members, if everyone got their dues notices by email, it would save our council ~$200 that we could use to help those in need. 

However,  you have to respond to the message sent last week or we will need to send the notice by US Mail . If you want to receive by US Mail that is ok. You also have the choice to receive by both email and US Mail if that is your preference. 

Thank you to the half of the council that has already replied! If you did not reply already, please reply NOW...don't put it off until later .  I need responses by the beginning of December so that Brian can complete his dues collection responsibility to the council. 

Also -  thank you in advance for your prompt payment  - it takes a lot of work on Brian's part when brothers forget to pay on time and it costs the council money when we need to send additional notices...please help us keep our funds going where they do the most good rather than to the US Postal Service.
In our prayers
Victims of the fires, that they may be sheltered and find hope in our Lord.

All those working tirelessly to assist our brothers and sisters in this desperate time of need.

Brother Cristopher Carrano's mother, Elizabeth, is still on dialysis and in need of a kidney transplant. Please pray for the location of a viable and willing donor and for her recovery.

Our Seminarians - Nathaniel Mayne, Juan Carlos Ponce, Candelario Jimenez, Aidan Cameron-Smith, Paul Park
