Fr. John Rocus. Not only does Fr. John Shepherd his flock, he roles up his sleeves and gets work done! Father John orchestrated a huge event, The Padre Pio Project on 9/23/2020. Among other things, this was a dedication for a Grotto in Howell MI. 45 acres of land was donated by the Diocese of Lansing and it is the future home of a Chapel and Hospital.
The chapel will be built first and it will replicate a chapel in which Padre Pio offered Mass in Italy. Faithful from all over will be able to come for adoration and to pray.
The hospital will be built next and will be given the title "Casa Sollievo Della Sofferenza" -or- "Home for the Relief of Suffering". It will become a haven of relief from suffering for all God’s children in pain in body or soul.
Father John's example, dedication and love for this Project should be an inspiration for All Knight's to help with this huge undertaking. The cost for the chapel alone is estimated to be $5 million.

The Bruzewski's. John and Marisa Bruzewski made our Drive In Movie Knight a huge success! Marisa's graphic design skills helped market the event to a better than expected audience while John's technical skills made projecting video and transmitting audio flawless. Plus, both of them helped with setup, concessions & clean up.
Thank you John & Marisa! Your efforts helped raise $1000 for The Padre Pio Project. Pictures of the event are below.
