They Do More Than Cook.
We are accustomed to seeing our Knights across the serving counter at benefit breakfasts or fish fry's. During the fall, many of us buy racks of well-prepared smoked ribs. Some of these events are focused on raising money for families or individuals in need because of illness or a catastrophic event in their lives. At other times they are raising money for their community and emergency fund. These funds allow them to respond, sometimes quickly, to special needs and other community or parish projects.
A good example of special needs are the upcoming KofC fish fry's. A part of the money will support our Catholic Youth Ministry. Remaining proceeds from the fish fry's and other events help them support seminarians.
Current Seminarian Support.
Currently KofC 760 is supporting two seminarians, both scheduled to be ordained later this spring:
Deacon James "Jimmie" Schibi. Council 760 has provided annual financial support for Jimmie's seminarian studies for several years. He attended High School in St. Paul and then entered the Mount St. Mary Seminary in Emmetsburg, Md. On May 20, 2017, he was ordained a Deacon at the Church of The Magdalen in Wichita. Following a brief assignment in Rome, Deacon Schibi will be ordained as a priest in May of this year. We look forward to "Father" Jimmie Schibi celebrating a mass at St. Francis de Heironymo Catholic Church later this year.
A Mission Outreach — Deacon Michael Aung Naing Win. Michael is from Monhla, Myanmar (Burma), Where he is associated with the Missionary of St. Paul Congregation. He was ordained as a Deacon last year. Deacon Michael (also spelled Aungnaingwin) is one of three seminarians currently assisted by our Pastor, Father David Michael Htun. Until now he has relied on borrowed computers. Approaching ordination this spring, he needed his own laptop to prepare homilies, courseware for religion classes, internet communication and writing. In February of this year Council 760 contributed money to cover the cost of a laptop, software and some ordination expense.
