Recently, the Brother Knights of Our Lady of the Lakes Council 5436 in Waterford Michigan and Father John Howard Council 8500 in Highland were contacted by a local organization to assist a mother in desperate need. Her urgent hardship was to catch up on some car payments since her job heavily relied on having a vehicle. This job was crucial in saving her family and keeping them together.


To tackle this challenge, three members from each council stepped forward, each bringing their own unique skills and experiences. Mike Mandzuk, the GK of Council 5436, personally delivered the funds to the car dealership and discussed the mom's situation with them.


Together, the two councils not only helped with the car payments but also donated a little extra to the family, ensuring that the mom could land on her feet and catch her breath.


This unified effort exemplified what our founder, Blessed Father Michael McGivney, envisioned for the Order.


Hats off to all of you, and VIVAT JESUS!
