Prince of Peace Wheelchair Sunday

Father Michael, Father Iyke and Brother Knights,

Prince of Peace Council #11716 in Plano, and the Dallas Diocese, held a very successful 14th Annual Wheelchair Sunday over the past two weekends. Including the funds received prior to the first weekend, they raised an incredible $94,432.

Their funds will go towards providing 280 conventional wheelchairs and 240 cerebral palsy wheelchairs for the Saltillo CRIT Center in Mexico. Hopefully, enough additional funds will be received so that they can provide all 520 wheelchairs, and along the way, go over $100K in donations for the 7th year in a row.

There were 6 Our Lady of Guadalupe lithographs given out to donors of $500 or more.

Thank you so much to Fr. Michael Forge and Fr. Iyke Udemba for their awesome support of this mission. Thanks also to the Brother Knights that helped and/or contributed over the two weekends. And many thanks to extremely kind and generous Prince of Peace parishioners for again providing so many life changing gifts of mobility.

God bless all of you.
