New Sir Knight
Our brother, Dr. Daniel Kostalnick , is the first member of our council to get his 4th Degree via an online ceremony. He joined the virtual exemplification last Saturday, May 23.

Congratulations, Sir Knight Daniel!!!
More Awards from the State Convention
After a review of our scores for the Culture of Life and Faith activities programs, our Council also got the following awards:

  • 1st Place in Culture of Life Activities Program
  • 5th Place in Faith Activities Program

In addition our entire activities program submission was forwarded to Supreme for awards considerations at the Supreme Convention.

Once again, Brothers, CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU for all that you do!!!

Still 5 Members Away from Double Star
With the revised criteria for Star Council Award, we are now just 5 new members away from achieving Double Star!

If you have a brother, son, father or neighbor you can recruit, please ask them to join our Order. It has never been easier to join. Supreme has online exemplifications in English, Spanish and French scheduled multiple times each week. All we need is to vote the candidates in and they can register for the online ceremonies.

Please email [email protected] with the contact information for anyone interested in joining.

Oratio Imperata
Prayer for Protection Against COVID-19
God our Father,
We come to you in our need
To ask your protection against the COVID-19 Virus,
That has claimed lives and has affected many.

We pray for your grace
For the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
Of this virus and its disease
And of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
That they may minister to the sick
With competence and compassion,
And of those governments and private agencies
That must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

We pray for those afflicted
May they be restored to health soon.

Grant us the grace
To work for the good of all
And to help those in need.

Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen. 
In our prayers

... for Lady Cyndi Keifer, wife of brother Pat Keifer, who was diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing chemo treatments.
... for an end to the pandemic.
... for the safety and health of our families.
... for the safety of all medical professionals and in gratitude to their service to COVID-19 patients.

The 'Word' from our Sponsor

" For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. "

2 Corinthians 4:17-18
