Kahmann Sense – A Big Thank You

Posted on: Nov 11, 2017

The Knights of the Round Table was a GIGANTIC PARTY this year – it was a ton of fun!!! Deacon Larry’s opening monologue was sssooooo FUNNY!!! I’m glad he’s a Deacon here at MQH because he would be rich and famous if he decided to become a stand-up comedian!!!
And the boxing match was a BLAST!! Deacon Larry is a fantastic champion as a super featherweight, but he tried to jump up to the heavyweight division and I put him down for the count!! The Championship Belt is safe with the Pastor for another year. In his defense, he didn’t have much time to train because I’ve been keeping him really busy!! A good time was had by ALL!!
The Knights of the Round Table was a SMASHING success and I’d like to thank people by name for their dedication and efforts.

Larry and me. Also, thank you to our principal, Ms. Mowery and all of the teachers for working the event.
As you know, in the summer we hired Carissa Young to be our Music Director. Carissa has 3 very young children and, as it turns out, she wasn’t able juggle her time between being a mother and our Music Director – so she resigned a couple weeks ago.
The good news is, we’ve hired Amy Lewkowicz to be our Music Director – HOORAY!!!! Please stop by after a Mass and welcome Amy to our awesome MQH family!! Welcome Amy!!
Peace & grace,
Fr. Kevin
