May they rest in peace:
Patrick W. McGurran died on August 14th. Pat joined the Knights of Columbus on April 29, 1956, and was a Third Degree member for over 61 years. Pat was a Past Grand Knight, and our longtime Treasurer. He was very active at IC Parish, serving on the Parish Council, lecturing, and running our 5th Sunday coffee and donut gatherings for many years. Though he was limited physically the past few years, Pat always stayed engaged with the council through visits, buying raffle tickets, and even attended our 75th Anniversary last fall. Please keep Pat, his wife Barb, their 4 adult children, and large extended family in your prayers.
Robert J. Brennan died on June 20th. Robert joined the Knights on March 6, 1977 and was a member of our council for 40 years. Bob would always greet you with a smile, was an avid Packer fan, and attended dances and dinners at the KC Hall whenever possible. Please remember Bob in your prayers. I apologize for the late notice for Bob.
Keep them in your prayers: Brother John Mortenson, Jim Utecht
