Where There is a Need, There is “A” Knight!

Once again, the Lord moves in mysterious ways. I attended the Council 7850 Membership Meeting last night (St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Plano) and before the meeting Brother Dave Rosengrants asked me if I was the one who sent out the notice about that guy from North Carolina who was seeking aid and companionship from the Knights in the Dallas Diocese.
