(Sorry for the late post!)
I’m delighted to report that on Saturday, October 27,2012 Brother Knights David P. Geary, Paul L. Kitchen and William O. Simon were Knighted into the Fourth Degree.
The Fourth Degree is charged with promoting Patriotism illuminated by their Catholic faith.
Worthy Sir Knights David, Paul and William joined the Fourth Degree – Richmond Assembly 1165, where Dick Willig, Alan Serafim and I are also active members.
At this Exemplification the Richmond Assembly 1165 added 25 new members.
There were 187 Virginia based Knights, Knighted at this annual Richmond event held at the Holiday Inn at the Koger Center.
Please extend your congratulations to our new Worthy Sir Knights David, Paul and William!
Food Drive for Commonwealth Catholic Food Pantry
In September you donated 75 bags of groceries that helped to feed 217 households in our immediate Richmond area.
With the cold weather fast approaching and increasing fuel prices, many of our neighbors are facing the fact that they may not be able to put food on the table for their families. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we can truly demonstrate our awareness of those who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
The weekend of November 11th volunteers and the Knights of Columbus will be handing out empty groceries bags after all masses. Please do not pass them by, take an empty grocery bag home and return it the next weekend. Thank you for all you do for this ministry.
Dear Brother Knights,
Please start thinking about the next March for Life on January 25, 2013. We again plan to provide bus transportation to the March for Life from the front lot of K of C Council 395 on Pump Rd. Please let me know if you plan to travel with us. As I’m sure you realize, it is now more important than ever that the Knights of Columbus stand with the Church to defend life and religious freedom.
