I hope that you and your families had a happy and blessed Easter. Our next meeting will be held on April 27th at 8pm. Welcome aboard to new members Owen Mooney, Marc Ocasal, and Tom Vesey. Congratulations once again to all our parade honorees and many thanks to all of you who marched in the various parades. The trip to Lourdes with our special pilgrims during Easter Week was truly inspiring and what a tribute it is to our Division that all of the helpers, including our chaplain Fr. Raaser, were Division 3 members or family. A special thanks goes out to Nadine and Ciaran Green, respectively our trip leader and ambassador. On behalf of all of us I extend our heartfelt thanks for your overwhelming support for Lourdes Kids of Rockland which makes these pilgrimages possible. Congrats to all our scholarship winners! I hope to see you all at our Mass and Communion Breakfast this Sunday. Congratulations to Bill Lee who will be honored at the Bobby Sands Memorial Mass and Social on May 5th. Please get your foursomes and sponsorships in for our Golf Outing on May 11th.
Dan Callanan reports the following Good and Welfare News… Please say a prayer for the repose of the soul of Paddy Kelly’s son James. Chris Gallagher reports that his brother Brian is doing quite well at home with his new kidney. Frank Farrelly is experiencing some problems with his lungs which do not do well with our recent cold weather, and John Kennedy and his family can always use a prayer to two.
As always, please remember to say an extra prayer or two for our wounded warriors and their families. Yours in Friendship, Unity & Christian Charity,
Dermot O’Connor Moore, President.
