Please forward this to our membership. I only had one volunteer plus me, so we have to postpone to March 17. Please prayerfully consider helping this pro-life effort.
As you can see as you scroll down, it is something we have been asked to help with by our Pastor and the Knights are supposed to be at the forefront of our Parish’s pro-life efforts. Please respond to both Paul Amrheim and me if you can help at one of the Masses on March 16th or 17th. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Fraternally, Mike K.
Msgr. Carr is ok with postponing. March 17 is the next available date. After that is Palm Sunday and Easter.
I will put us down for March 17 unless you have some compelling reason to wait till April.

We are planning a postcard campaign initiated by the NCHLA and our Diocesan office of Justice and Peace.
IT is scheduled for the last weekend of February here at ST. Bridget. I would like to enlist the aid of the Knights.
The way Msgr. and I worked it out is we would like to have the postcards in the pews (see attached). There are 4 cards to a sheet. We would put the cards in the pews before mass along with pens. After the prayer of the faithful people would have time to fill them out. Then they would be taken up in a second collection basket along with a donation for postage. The Knights could be involved in putting the cards in the pews, collecting in the second collection and then sorting the cards form the money (money will go into second collection bags marked for postage and counted by our regular counters) and detaching them along the perforations. Msgr. also asked me to ask you if the Knights would be willing to make up the difference in postage if there is any? I will take care of putting on the postage and making sure everyone has a reps name filled in.
What do you think? Do you think you could get the Knights to help. Probably only need two to a mass. 10 minutes before mass and maybe 15 minutes after to do the sorting and take the cards apart (we might could ask people to take the cards apart – might make them easier to collect – though it would make a bunch of noise).
