Parish Festival Help Needed

Brother Knights, we need help with the Chicken Wings and Donate Life Organ Donor Registrations at the Festival this weekend.  Help is needed prior to prepare chicken and then start cooking prior to the Festival, during, and cleanup afterward. We need help Saturday around noon to clean the chicken and then we need guys to Show up for setup on Sunday around 9 AM to start setting up and then at least 4 guys in the booth at all times for cooking and serving from 12-6.  Cleanup will also be needed after 6 or when we run out of chicken.  Food Handlers certification is needed along with Safe Environment Training.
We also have our Donate Life booth to man and take registrations.  We have the Donor Arizona Mascot and handlers coming out at the beginning of the festival to encourage registrations.  We need help to staff the booth 12-6.  Safe Environment certification is needed.

Good Friday Reflections

Holy Week CrossDespite Good Friday’s central role in the heart of Christianity, attendance at services remains low. All Knights are encouraged to participate in Good Friday events. By our involvement in these services, and other Easter Season activities, Knights can realize positive spiritual rewards as well as set an example for the Parish community..We have posted a Good Friday Reflection reading to this website for you to download, read, and share with others.  On Good Friday, March 29, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel will offer the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 2:30pm, Stations of the Cross at 3:00pm, and a Commemoration of Our Lord’s Passion at 7:00pm.  Please join us!

They currently serve 200+ women per week in their three local Centers. Please pick up one of their baby bottles after Mass… fill it with a check, cash, or coins… and return it to one of their collection bassinets before the weekend Masses on March 16th & 17th. A representative is onsite to accept debit & credit card donations. Checks should be made out to Aid to Women Center. Thank you for your support of this worthy organization!
