Knights Supporting Knights
Brothers - As Knights, we support each other in so many meaningful ways - faith, fraternity, family, help in times of need. Quite often, we don't realize that our council is filled with brothers operating businesses that can be of service to us. Given that we have control of our website, I would like to collect the names of companies that are owned / operated by brother Knights so that we can have a page dedicated to listing services / companies that we can consider supporting. Please note that we are not going to be able to endorse the business but we will be able to list them a provide a link to a website where brother Knights can go to decide if the company / service is appropriate for each individual's need.

Please send me a note at if you have a business or service that you would like to include.

The 'Word' from our Sponsor

" Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit ” 
Acts 2:28
Did you hear the one ...

A Jesuit, a Dominican, and a Trappist were marooned on a desert island.

They found a magic lamp, and after some discussion decided to rub it. Lo and behold, a genie appeared and offered them three wishes. They decided it was only fair that they could each have one wish.

The Jezzie said he wanted to teach at the world's most famous university, and poof, he was gone!

The Dominican wished to preach in the world's largest church, and poof, he was gone!

Then the Trappist said, "Gee, I already got my wish!"
