News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 40 │ NUMBER 28 │ JULY 12, 2022
In the face of tragedy, Knights of Columbus work to bring hope and healing to their communities, from the United States to Ukraine. After the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Knights in South Texas served meals for participants of a candlelight vigil and organized a rosary walk in memory of the victims. Andres Ybarra, grand knight of Uvalde Area Council 3245 and a local mortician, organized funeral arrangements for many of the victims. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever seen,” Ybarra said, adding that his faith has been indispensable throughout the experience.
Pallbearers, including U.S. Marine Christian Garcia, carry the caskets of Irma and Joe Garcia, Christian’s parents, after their funeral Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Uvalde, Texas, on June 1. Irma, a teacher, was killed in the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School, and Joe, a member of Uvalde Area Council 3245, died two days later of a heart attack.
Grace Amid TragedyAndres “June” Ybarra has two key roles in his community, one as grand knight of Council 3245 based at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Uvalde, Texas; the other, as a mortician at a local funeral home that prepared the bodies and organized funeral arrangements for 16 of the 21 victims. He reflects on how God’s presence gave him and the community hope after the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School. READ MORE
