The Jubilee Year of Mercy Mass for People with Disabilities

At the international Mass, The pope had a homily that also should not be missed.

However, more locally, we had quite the celebration- and at St. Rose's parish in Northeast Portland, 15485 was well represented in attendance, organization, and participation in the Mass.

Ted's Son Christopher got interviewed by Catholic Sentinel for his habit of drawing art during Mass.

There was sign language interpretation for the deaf
Thanks to PGK Ted Seeber, we arranged for a 4th Degree Honor Guard for Bishop Steiner
Yep, that's Hank Hess, Charter GK of Holy Cross Council
And our dear Warden Michael Chau, even if you can only see the back of his head, was an altar server along with two other intelectually disabled people.

Our newest Third Degree, Daniel Saloman, got to play the role of Christ in the Gospel re-enactment.

 There will be better pictures in the Sentineel, eventually.

 Bishop Steiner told us he graduated from St. Rose- over 65 years ago.

Junque and Jewels Reminders

The three specific times they've asked for help from the Knights and the Men's Basketball club are:
June 16 at 6:00pm- set down the floor in the Gym
June 17 at 6:00pm- Need TRUCKS! Bring heavy tables down from the Shed and finish setting them up.
June 26 at 3:00pm- Need TRUCKS! Take the heavy tables back up to the Shed.

Remember, many hands make for light work! Volunteer any hours you can, please, and let's make this 25th Annual Junque and Jewells sale a big success!

Need a leader for setting up for Junque and Jewells Setup June 17

Ted Writes: Shannon reminds me we have a family birthday the night of the 17th. Could somebody who is good with maps and who isn't already planning on driving a truck please take leadership of the Junque and Jewells setup that evening?

Junque and Jewells setup at St. Clare's

Because it has been a couple of weeks, and because I am getting questions about it, here are the dates and times for Junque and Jewells that Knights and the Men's Basketball Group are requested to volunteer for. Of course, you can volunteer for more, but these are the times we are specifically needed for setup and teardown: June 16, 6pm-8pm (should be plenty of time to get the floor down) June 17, 6pm-9pm (will need Trucks to get tables and bookcases down from the shed) June 26, 3pm (Trucks need to return to help with cleanup and moving tables back up to the shed) Remember, many hands make for light work, and in addition, 4 hours of volunteering gets you a ticket for the early bird sale on Thursday, June 23.
