My name is John Enders, and I have been a member of this parish for about 31 years. Iíve have the honor of being a member of the Fr. Breen Council #7490 Knights of Columbus for about 30 years, having served in many capacities, including Grand Knight twice. Iíve had the privilege of serving on some of the most successful committees, including fund raisers.

According to a letter from St. Paul to the Corinthians, St. Paul wrote: If I should speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have charity, I have become a sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to move mountains, yet do not have charity, I am nothing. And if I distribute all my goods to feed the poor and if I deliver my body to be burned, yet do not have charity, it profits me nothing.
Charity is patient, is kind; charity does not envy, is not pretentious, is not puffed up,is not ambitious, is not self-seeking, is not provoked: thinks no evil, does not rejoice over wickedness, but rejoices with the truth; bears with all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all thingsÖso there abide Faith, Hope and Charity, these three but the greatest of these is Charity.
