St. Andrew Kim Council 17146 in Irving and the Dallas Diocese held a Wheelchair Sunday over the weekend and raised $12,365 for 82 wheelchairs. All 10 of Our Lady of Guadalupe lithographs brought to the event were given out to 10 donors of $500 or more. Their funds will be used towards providing a large container of 280 wheelchairs for the CRIT Center in Chiapas, Mexico.
Thank you so much to Fr. Nam Gil Kim for his awesome support. He allowed the Knights to show a video and read a pulpit talk at all the masses and he helped support the mission with a donation.
Thanks also to Brother Dr. Greg Jeong for coordinating the event, helping at all the masses and reading the pulpit talk at all the masses, just like he did a couple of years ago.
Grateful to the other Brother Knights that helped collect donations and to the parishioners of St. Andrew Kim for their generosity in providing all these wheelchairs.
God bless all of you.
