Last evening we were alerted to the news of the death of Father David Knight by Gerry and Margaret Smy. This is indeed sad news, let us pray for the repose of his soul. Gerry and Margaret brought Fr David to New Zealand to speak at a Cursillo weekend they organised back in about 2004 from memory. They recommended him as a speaker for a future convention and so he returned as part of our Eucharistic Convention guest speaking panel in 2005.
How fortunate we were to have been able to host Fr David that year. He has kept in touch ever since. You will remember the lenten reflections we uploaded this year? They were written by Father David.
Haven’t we had some beautiful speakers over the years? Their words delivered live at one of our conventions continue to be heard through the videos of the talks uploaded to Youtube. Such is the power of modern media.
Alert your family and friends to consider attending our 2021 convention which is in the final stages of planning now. More on that very soon.
