FoM 7566 August 2020 Family of the Month: The Eddie Byrne Family
Eddie Byrne’s family have been parishioners at Saint John Neumann since 1988, and Eddie became a Knight and joined the Family of Man Council in 1994. Our council wants to recognize Eddie and his family’s contributions to a very successful food drive that the council conducted for the Cornerstones food bank. Eddie initiated, planned and coordinated the operation, and his daughters, Kerianne and Irelynn, promoted it on social media platforms, which greatly increased the number of donations. The council collected and delivered more than 2,800 pounds of food and supplies to the food bank.
Eddie has served the parish and council as a catechist, eucharistic minister, Red Cross blood drive coordinator, and team leader for the hypothermia shelter. His wife, Dennie, and their four adult children have all participated in various parish activities and ministries over the years. They are an exemplary Catholic Family. Our congratulations and best wishes to the Byrne Family!
