How to gain "Points" with K/C activities

The e-mail had a bad link.  Ted updated for us.

The following link show the tally sheets for various activities that we're encouraged to perform.  Some of these things we do habitually, without expecting any recognition.  However, I hope you will make mention of these things for the benefit of our council.  I will report various activities on the 15th of the month for the prior month.

From the SIS e-mail

Janet Patella was moved to Crestview rehabilitation center lateThursday.  She is doing fine. 
     At this point she has no word on when she will return to Raleigh Hills Assisted Living, but she does expect to be back there before too long.  

Keep praying for her.

Please Pray for Fr. Kim of Mount Angel Abbey

He's been returned from the hospital with nothing more they can do, and has slipped into a coma.   Tom Owens knows this holy priest well.  May he die a good death.
