Delta Church Drive

View this email in your browser
Brother Knights   Over the last several months you have heard about the DELTA Church Drive.  This is an exciting way to recruit new Knights.  There is a simple process to order and use the needed materials, and all materials are FREE.  This recruiting tool is more effective when the Grand Knight, Membership Chairman and others involved in recruiting attend a short online training.  The training takes less than an hour and gives you the opportunity to ask questions.  It is offered every Monday evening and Saturday morning by Regional Training Director Ken White.  
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE IN YOUR COUNCIL, ESPECIALLY MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORS!
A schedule and link to the meeting is attached.  At the time of the meeting click on the picture of Father McGivney and you will be sent to the GoToMeeing. If you haven’t attended this DELTA Church Drive training in the past, make it a priority and login to one of the sessions.  It will benefit your Council and continue to strengthen our Principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  It’s a great time to be a Knight and even a better time to recruit a new Knight.  If you have any questions you can always contact me by phone, email or text.  Thanks for all you do.

Call to Action

TAKE ACTION: Let doctors practice medicine, not abortion!

Call to Action
Do you think that doctors should be forced to perform abortions or “gender transition” procedures against their beliefs? Or that taxpayers should be forced to pay for them?

If the answer is NO, please send a comment to the Department of Health and Human Services today!

A little background: In June, the Trump Administration took steps to protect life and religious freedom by correcting an Obamacare rule.  Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) bans sex discrimination in federally-funded health programs and activities. But after the ACA became law, the Obama Administration issued rules that wrongly interpreted “sex” in section 1557 to include “termination of pregnancy” and “gender identity.”  This put health care providers who do not consider abortion or “gender transition” procedures to be appropriate medical care—and health plans that do not cover these procedures—at risk of being charged with sex discrimination!

The Trump Administration has proposed new rules to eliminate this definition of “sex.” The rules clarify that section 1557 does NOT force healthcare providers and insurers to perform or pay for abortion or gender transition procedures.  In addition, the proposed rules recognize that nondiscrimination requirements must be interpreted in line with the First Amendment of the Constitution and federal pro-life, religious freedom, and freedom of conscience laws. 

It is important that we share our support for these proposed rules with HHS!
 

The deadline for submitting comments is Tuesday, August 13 before midnight EST.  Read more background information on this issue.

Tom Munoz’s wife deceased

Sincerest condolences to our Brother Tom Munoz whose wife of 30 years
passed away on June 28th. A rosary will be prayed in her memory at
1:00pm on Saturday July 6th at the Ruffner Wakelin Funeral Home located
on Navajo Drive. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine
upon her.

Parking Golf Cart project undate

Bro Manning has left the area and probably will not return until next month, so we need a volunteer to drive at the Saturday 4:30 PM Mass (arriving at 3:45 PM) until the parking lot is finished.
We also need at least one backup driver for each of the four Masses.

If you wish to volunteer, please let me know ASAP.

God bless you!

Brother Ken O’Daniel and his wife Pat! need our prayers

3/27/19

Brother Ken O’Daniel and his wife Pat! need our prayers

Pat is out of breath after walking 50 feet and has to rest. She was anemic and required 2 units of blood last Saturday. Her legs and feet are swollen and our heart Dr. found water on her lungs and around her heart. She had trouble swallowing and she’s currently in the process of getting x-rays of her neck. She has had a barium swallowing test at YRMC hospital. She has an appointment with the heart Dr. on Thursday and our Internist on Friday.

My blood flow to my brain on the left side had obstructions in the carotid artery. The flow is blocked 95 to 99%. Yesterday, I went to Banner University Hospital in Phoenix to have the problem corrected. They were going to place a stent in and enable the blood to flow freely to my brain. However, should any of the blockage break loose it will cause a massive stroke. They had reached the blockage and the Dr. cancelled the procedure, because in his opinion to continue would’ve caused a massive stroke, because the blockage was the material-type that will splinter. I have a new appointment with my heart Dr. and he will have to find a new solution to my problem that will cause me no harm.
