St Martha’s KIngwood Knights of Columbus Council 12320, St Michael's Warriors, hosted the re-dedication of the LCpl Luke Yepsen pavilion with a new sign. The Knights of Columbus paid for the building of the new sign.

Lance Corporal Luke C Yepsen is the son of Deacon Gary and Sheila Yepsen.

LANCE CORPORAL LUKE CARNEY YEPSEN, born April 1, 1986 in Houston, Texas, was killed December 14, 2006 while conducting combat operations in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. After graduating from Kingwood High School in 2004 Luke attended Texas A & M, but left in his freshman year to join the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a patriotic young man with a strong desire to serve his country and to fight for the things we hold dear. Since Luke was a strong and capable man, and armed with his faith in God, he felt the need to protect his countrymen. That he lost his life at the young age of 20 and so soon after being sent to Iraq makes the loss all the more tragic. However, he felt he was covered in prayer and that God was truly with him. Luke loved all people and was proud to have traveled to 20 different countries in 20 years.

Blessing of the pavilion and sign was conducted by Deacon Carlin Walter’s “USMC” and member of the council.
