Fred Cabebe had a heart attack yesterday, 8/16

Brother Fred Cabebe had a heart attack yesterday. He is at YRMC West ICU.
His physician did not find any blockages; however, Fred continues to suffer from Cardio Myopathy. And he has a “touch” of pneumonia.
He will probably be moved to a regular room today and be released tomorrow to go home.
Brother Fred indicated that (now) he doesn’t need Council’s help with anything.
Please pray that he recovers from yesterday’s heart attack and the touch of pneumonia.
Have a wonderful Knight’s day!
God bless!

Sister Freda Jeffries needs prayers


Sister Freda Jefferies, Brother Jim Jeffries wife, has suffered from pain (knee replacement) for a while.
Yesterday, she experienced intolerable pain and was rushed to the ER. Her examination revealed that she has a broken leg.
She is scheduled for surgery this coming Friday, but due to infection, Freda’s surgery has been postponed until Tuesday
Please pray that both her surgery and recovery goes well.
Have a wonderful Knight’s day!

Catholics in the Public Square

Please read “Catholics in the Public Square”, written by the Most Reverend Thomas J. Olmsted (our Bishop). This book is in its 4th Edition. It is also in Spanish “Catolicos y Vida Publica”. To us Catholics, this is a very, very important book!
God bless!

Brother Jim Cloughessy Update


A comment from Marlene, Bro Jim’s lovely wife:  “He [Jim] is still on Hospice, but will be on Palliative care soon. He is doing well presently. He wanted to go to the meeting last night but we got “tied up” buying a new “used” car. He will be at the Sept. meeting. Glad Ermie’s surgery went well.  We will keep her in our prayers.  All the prayers offered for Jim really made a difference.”
Brothers, please note above that Marlene said “All the prayers offered for Jim really made a difference.”

Bro. Wes Berry needs prayers

Please pray for Wes Berry who is in YRMC East and will be transferred to YRMC West. He has a stone lodged in a bile duct. He will have orthoscopic surgery tomorrow. If the surgeon can not get the stone orthoscopically, then regular surgery will be necessary. Please pray that all goes well. God bless! – Ermie Berry

7/30 Update

Bro Wes surgery to remove his gall bladder was successful. His surgeon said that he is strong and doing well.

He is at Banner University Hospital, Room 628.
Please continue praying that his recovery goes well.
Brother Wes and Ermie thank you all for your prayers!
God bless!
