Grace in the Eye of the Storm
Daily life for General Agent José Lebron-Sanabria drastically changed the instant Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. The nearly Category 5 storm devastated the island, leaving residents on a long and arduous journey of survival, recovery, and reconstruction. José and his fellow Knights of Columbus rallied their communities to support those in need, proving once again that tragedies present opportunities to bring out the best in humanity.

A TOUCHDOWN FOR LIFE
Since 1973, the Notre Dame Knights have delighted Fighting Irish football fans with their iconic pre-game steak sandwich sale, but for the Knights, it’s about a lot more than grilling steaks. To date, they have raised $1.5 million for various charitable causes, including the purchase of life-saving ultrasound machines.
Congratulations to the Corp family on the baptism of their son Hunter Lawrence! He received a Casey Bear this afternoon after his baptism! Welcome to the family of God!
Here are some behind the scene photos:
Joe Reali was a dynamic young man whose passion was evident on both the football field and in his Catholic faith. After his sudden death in 2015, thousands turned out for his wake and funeral, where they shared stories about Joe’s sacrificial love for others and his care for the downtrodden. Today, the legacy of this devout and fun-loving young man lives on in Long Island’s Joseph Mario Reali Council 16261.
