While serving his fifth combat tour, U.S. Army Captain Luis Avila was hit with an explosive device. After five years of challenges, Captain Avila continues his recovery at his new smart home, which he received from the K of C partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation. Captain Avila is a member of Washington Council 224 and James Cardinal Hickey Assembly #2534 in the District of Columbia.
Military personnel like Captain Avila need our continued help. More importantly, they need our prayers and spiritual encouragement.
Please help us provide this encouragement by supporting the 2017 Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage, co-sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Archdiocese for the Military Services, U.S.A. The pilgrimage offers soldiers like Captain Avila — who is a two-time participant in the Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage — an opportunity for renewal and healing.
