St. Michael the Archangel McKinney Wheelchair Sunday

Father Jet and Brother Knights,

New World Council #9903 at St. Michael the Archangel in McKinney, and the Dallas Diocese, held a successful 3rd Annual Wheelchair Sunday over the weekend. Including the $225 already received, they raised $12,208 for 81 wheelchairs.

Since it is estimated that each wheelchair delivered changes and improves an average of 10 lives, they will make an immediate impact in the lives of 810 people.

Their funds will go towards providing a large container of 280 wheelchairs for the Michoacán CRIT Center in Mexico.

There were 11 Our Lady of Guadalupe lithographs given out to donors of $500 or more.

Thank you so much to Fr. Jet Garcia for his continued support of this mission and to Andrew Sakelson for again coordinating the event, reading the pulpit talk at the 4 English Masses and helping at all 7 Masses. Thanks also to Ricardo Guzman-Heffferan for reading the pulpit talk at the 3 Spanish Masses and helping. And thanks to the other Brother Knights that helped and to the kind and generous parishioners for providing these life changing gifts of mobility.

God bless all of you.

Dear Fr. Jet and Brother Knights,

Thank you once again for your continuing support of our life-changing mission.

Your efforts allow us to answer the prayers of entire families while allowing children to live happier and fuller lives. Being included in school, family, and games outside with their friends are gifts from God.

By sponsoring these wheelchairs, you are blessing us all with the ability to do God’s work on earth.

Thank you, and may God bless you.

Most sincerely,
