JUNE KNIGHT OF THE MONTH
Council: 13861 - SANFORD
The St. Thomas Council presents the June Knight of the Month to David Murphy who has been a Knight for twelve years.
Despite working full time as a professional engineer, David is extremely active in our Parish, community, and our council. He recently volunteered and logged over 400 surge hours working in Haiti, Faith Formation, Acts Team, TMIY, and faith sharing groups in his home.
David serves on the Haiti Committee whose aim is to help our sister parish, St. Anthony the Hermit in Haiti. David has made countless trips to Haiti at his own expense. Being an engineer by profession, he coordinated the reconstruction of their church which was badly damaged by Hurricane Matthew in 2017.
Within our Parish David is involved in both the Faith Formation and ACTS teams and has attended many ACTS retreats as a team leader.
David, along with his wife Lynda, lead Lectio Divina sessions every Wednesday evening in their home. Lectio Divina is a traditional monastic practice of scriptural reading, meditation, and prayer, intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s Word. Typically, six to eight are in attendance.
We congratulate David for his constant dedication and service to our Parish, the Haiti Parish, our community, and our council.
