Dear Knights of Columbus Council 4972,
Hello! I hope that all of you are doing well. All is well here in Rome, and I am anxiously awaiting my upcoming Easter Break in two weeks. This Easter I will be spending some time in Ireland with a priest friend from back home. It will be good to get away from school before I finish up in June. I wanted to send you all a note expressing my gratitude for the check you all sent me last week. I am indeed grateful, and it will help me with the various expenses I have here in seminary. This weekend I will be going to Assisi with students from the University of Notre Dame, and will be sure to pray for Council 4972 at the tomb of St. Francis. Once again, I am humbled and grateful for your support! I look forward to meeting you all this summer! Until then please be assured of my continued prayers for the good work that you all do!
