The Annual Fallout Clinic hosted by the Humberto Cardinal Medeiros Assembly at Our Lady of Sorrows Church has been postponed. I will follow up as to when a date has been set.  The reason for the postponement is for the Rosary for Monsignor Gus Pacheco, as the Honor Guard will be standing guard during the Rosary on that day.

The viewing will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. - Thursday, March 16, 2017 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 1108 W. Hackberry Ave. in McAllen with a Rosary Service at 7:00 p.m.  Please advise all your respective Sir Knights participating to be there no later than 6:30 PM for instructions.
