THANK YOU TO SO MANY GENEROUS SUPPORTING KNIGHTS! THROUGH COUNCIL RESOLUTIONS AND PERSONAL GIFTS WE SURPASSED OUR $50,000 GOAL!
The state council is now helping Aspire Together in their final phases of public fundraising, as they work to get the “upfit” of the ultrasound van completed through Save the Storks.
State Chaplain Fr. Timothy Naples is inviting individual Knights of Columbus at this time to become regular contributors to Aspire Together. (Note, Knights Councils that choose to donate to the state fund may still do so at this time).
May 10th Letter from Fr. Naples to all individual Knights
Greetings in Christ,
As I send this mailing “from the State Chaplain,” I recall all the brother Knights of Columbus whom I have met in person, and I send my best wishes to all, whether we know each other or not. For all those I have not met in person, I pray this shall be a suitable introduction, as we always try to strengthen our communion in Christ.
My charitable outreach this year is to share this (enclosed) project fundraising “flyer” from Aspire Together Pregnancy Care Center in Burlington with all members in our order in the northwest of the state. I support Aspire Together with a monthly automatic-gift (in addition to my donations to my own parish, to our Diocese, and to other charities, of course). Maybe you already know about Aspire Together and their work, serving Christ by serving pregnant mothers and parents of young children. If so, maybe you will join me in making a small monthly gift. That is the idea of this charitable outreach; even $10/month or $20/month gifts go a long way. If you do not know about the work done by Aspire Together, maybe you will still consider a one-time special gift for the project described in this flyer. Thank you for checking it out.
I send you my own prayers and my encouragement in Christ. If there is any way in which I can be of service to you in my capacity as K. of C. State Chaplain, or merely as one of our local Catholic priests, let it be so! I also give my regards to your own parish priests, and pray for your parishes and your communities in these most difficult times. May the Lord bless you, your family, your parish and community!
Fr. Timothy Naples, State Chaplain
I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. – Romans 12:1
