I regret to inform you that Brother Knight Ray Torres passed away early this morning. He was 91 years old. He was a very active member of the Southgate community, holding many positions and being a catalyst of change. He was also a very active member of our Council. He is survived by his wife, Betty, and his family.
Along with the Rosary Altar Confraternity, we will be saying a Rosary for him at 7PM on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. It will be held at Molnar Funeral Home, 14032 Northline Rd, Southgate, MI. We ask that all members please try to attend to support Betty and Brother Ray’s family and to pray for the repose of the soul of Brother Ray.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and may the perpetual light shine upon him!
May he rest in peace. Amen.
This weekend after all of our Masses, we will solicit donations as part of the Michigan Knights of Columbus ‘MI Drive’ (more commonly known as the Tootsie Roll Drive). We need the help of every member to make this a success!
Along those lines, we are holding our last Charity Family Breakfast of the season this Sunday, April 23rd with the proceeds also going toward this drive! We hope that all of our friends and supporters will come and enjoy a delicious breakfast, all for just a small free-will offering. (We need the help of every member to make this a success as well.)
The charities we will support this year include:
- St. Louis Center
- Special Olympics Michigan – Area 23 (Wayne)
- The Arc Downriver
- Angel’s Place
- St. Francis on the Lake
- Archdiocese of Detroit (for Intellectually/Developmentally Impaired)
With your help, we can help others! Hope to see you all this weekend! God bless!
