Worthy State Deputy Alfredo Vela & Texas State Council
I write this morning to inform the Worthy State Deputy Alfredo Vela and Texas State Council that Past State Deputy Billy Quintanilla's son (Billy Fay Quintanilla) Knight of Columbus 4th Degree will Lord willing receive Holy Orders to the Permanent Diaconate on November 7th, 2020 in the Diocese of Corpus Christi by Bishop Michael Mulvey. As my Father passed away on April 1, 2004, he was never able to witness God's calling in my life. After 5 1/2 years of the formation process to the Permanent Diaconate, myself along with twelve of men will be Ordained in the Diocese of Corpus Christi, TX. We ask for your prayers and continued support as we begin our Ministry. God Bless You All.
Your Servant in Christ

18-24 May 2021 Warriors To Lourdes Military Pilgrimage
Posted Oct 19, 2020
Good Day Brother Knights,
I’d like your assistance in advertising for the upcoming 18-24 May 2021 Warriors To Lourdes Military Pilgrimage. Below the link for the application, which has a deadline of 15 January:
As discussed in the past, I am one of four troop leaders for the Texas team traveling to Lourdes, France. Last year, we had 234 passengers paid for by the Knights of Columbus. We are hoping for the same attendance.
With this, for the San Antonio area, we will travel to the Houston Airport through ground transportation. Once on the ground transport, we will connect with the rest of the Houston pilgrims and the Fort Hood trip leader (Sandy Stevens). Then onward to France. I will stay contact with you since my wife and I are the San Antonio trip leaders. The Warriors To Lourdes staff is working the finalizing of the applications to include the trip leader’s pilgrim roster. We will make sure, you are on the roster for the San Antonio team. You are welcome to use my personal email if you have any questions. My work email (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be operational until 12 December 2020. Then I can be reached only through my personal email (email@example.com) and personal mobile phone: (702) 279-9311.
Finally, council members of 17179 are distributing brochures to Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, Fort Sam Houston to include the military wounded care units in San Antonio. Your help in distributing the attachment to the councils throughout Texas is critical. I did not have the Diocesan Deputies’ nor the Texas State Deputy’s email address, so you help in connecting with them is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.
