Support Mainr Right to Life and Council 15791

09/30/2020


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Myself, and my family once again this year purchased from our Council Life Team Director “Maine Right to Life” tickets. During the last 21 years my family and I have purchased “Maine Right to Life” tickets in support of the State Life Program. It’s been a pleasure once again this year to have sent to us the tickets so we can continue supporting this Blessed Program. With the Covid-19 pandemic this year, many fund raising programs will be collecting very little for their cause’s. On the other hand some programs will need to be shut down completely because of the pandemic. As we look toward to 2021 we should all say prayers that this virus will be behind us, and all the many special groups such as the “Maine Right to Life” program will be able to operate normally once again. Blessings to Brother Frank and Wife Jean Pease for their dedicated service in support of “Maine Right to Life” and the Unborn Child…………….

Support Fallen Veterans Family. 15791

09/25/2020


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Myself and a community veteran spent time in support of a sick Brother Veteran who was suffering from Terminal Cancer. Our time was spent within his home, the Hospital, and at the Graveside Service during August and September, 2020. As a Knight of Columbus and Army Veteran myself, it has always been important for me to help fellow veterans when they are sick, or when their family needs help. During August and September we spent time in support of this veteran and his wife. Helping them in a number of area’s, which they needed our help with. This veteran and I shared stories of our military pass, and just shared our life’s stories about our children, and grandchildren. As in any graveside service, many prayers were offered by all in attendance to the family. As part of the memorial service at the graveside one of the daughters and a Navy Service lady worked together in playing Taps, and the presentation of an American Flag to the deceased veterans wife. At one of the children’s homes there was socializing and plenty of food to eat following the service. May the soul of our Veteran Brother now rest in peace with the LORD.

In partnership with the family, they are dedicated to nurturing the personal development of the whole child. Their mission is to instill Catholic values, foster self-discipline and promote academic excellence in the spirit of a caring and affirming community.

The Council purchases a brick every time a council member passes away. The bricks cost a total of $50.00 and can be found in the front of the school where there is a memorial walkway for supporters of the school.

This year the council has already donated $100.00 for two bricks in the memory of brothers Paul Payeur and Andre Vermette to St. Thomas and will continue to do so throughout the year.
