Brother Don Moran

I spoke with Don Moran's sweet wife Vivian after the 5pm Mass on 9/24/17. Don had gone in for another MRI on his back. He is so much pain.
At this point the Dr. says all they can do is work on pain management.
Please keep Don (and Vivian) in your prayers

It is with sadness that I report the death of a good friend and fellow Knight James Giorvas of Central Point Council #11258. The son of Greek immigrant parents, Jim spent his life as a San Francisco firefighter. He received the three degrees of knighthood in 1994. He was a charter member of St. Augustine Council. Though he did not attend meetings, he never failed to pay his dues, and followed activities of the council closely in our newsletter. I visited him from time to time during the past few years, and enjoyed hearing his humor-filled accounts of his early life as a Coast League baseball player in the early nineteen-forties and his time on the fire department. Please pray for the repose of James soul, his wife June and for his family members. Details of the funeral arrangements are still to be announced.

Sir Knight Steve Havlik of Scappoose Council 3302 and Assembly 1292 has been diagnosed with cancerous tumors in his abdomen, liver and lungs. He is currently in Columbia Care Center in Scappoose in palliative care. Brother Steve is 75 and his current condition is such that surgery or chemo is not appropriate. He currently is a Life member and has been a member since 1984. Please pray for Sir Knight Steve and his siblings Albert Havlik and Mary Ann (Havlik) Robinson and all his family.

Prayers are requested for Robert G Ollier of Scappoose Council 3302. Bob is a life member and has been a knight for 67 years and is 89 year old being born 26 May 1928. Bob recently had a fall which has incapacitated him for a while. He is very fragile.
