Hello Brother Knights,
First, a big thanks to Eric, Chris, Steve, Barry and all who worked so hard to have a great K of C picnic. Everything was fantastic!
Second, there are two events that will occur this week at IW to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mary’s appearance to the children of Fatima. On Tuesday, July 11 at 7 pm in the church, we will show a 90 minute documentary on Fatima. We will follow that with the Rosary. In addition, Fr. Munna, a priest from Uganda who is very knowledgeable about Fatima and actually travelled with Pope Francis to Fatima for the 100th anniversary on May 13, 2017, will happen to be in the St. Louis area this week. He is coming in Tuesday evening and we are blessed that he plans to spend some time with us. If all goes well, he will arrive in time for us to introduce him and for him to participate in the Rosary on Tuesday. We will see if he can be available for a brief talk and Q&A after the Rosary for those who want to stay. He will come back for a longer talk and Q&A following the 6:30 pm Rosary on Thursday July 13 (refer to the below for more info).
There are 3 opportunities to join others to pray the Rosary on Thursday July 13. At 7:20 am and 8:20 am, the Rosary will be prayed following the morning Masses which will likely be in the Multi-purpose Room above the parish offices while construction continues in the lower church hall. At 6:30 pm, we will pray the Rosary in the IW church. In addition, Fr. Munna plans to spend an hour with us following the 6:30 pm Rosary; giving additional insights into the events and messages of Fatima with time for Q&A. I hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet and learn from Fr. Munna.
