Golf Outing Sunday, September 20th.
The House Committee is sponsoring a golf outing at Twin Brooks Golf Course in Chesaning. It is a four person scramble that is open to members AND their guests. It will be a shotgun format beginning at noon. Females are welcome guests and may tee off from the red tees. Golfers 65 and older may tee off from the gold tees. All others will use the white tees. We are hoping that we can fill the course with members and nonmembers. The cost is $70 per person for 18 holes with a cart, a steak dinner at the course after golf, entrance into the skins game and a Mulligan. Dean Schirle is the son of Bernie Schirle, who was a very active member of Council 1139. He manages the course and is very interested in making our outing special. There will be drink specials on the course. Prizes will be awarded for different place finishes and activities like the longest drive, etc. We will have a sign-up sheet at the hall and at Twin Brooks. Questions can be directed to Mark Bruckman, Freddie Petersen or John Smith. All proceeds will go to the House Committee to continue hall projects and for the repair or replacement of equipment as needed.
Due to the new first degree schedule, the Officers' meeting time will change. The new time will be decided soon.

Caring for Our Treasured Gifts
Our senior priests are among the most treasured gifts in our diocese. While they no longer have administrative responsibility for a specific parish, they continue to serve the people of our diocese. They celebrate Mass for pastors who are ill or on vacation and they assist in a wide variety of other ways. They hear confessions, they visit nursing homes, hospitals and prisons; they continue their priestly life to the extent that age and health permits. These dedicated servants of the Church have been our teachers, builders, ministers, confessors, counselors and our friends. We’ve turned to them in time of great tragedy, and we have invited them to join in celebrating our times of great joy. We’ve asked for their prayers. We have entrusted them with the education and spiritual development of our children.
