A Message from the Deputy Grand Knight
To all my fellow Knights of this Council,
    I myself have been honored to serve with you known to me as my Brothers of this council. I enjoy the events and what it allows me to do. It allows me to express my faith through action, for we are looked upon not by our words ,but by our deeds that we do as Knights representing not only our brotherhood and our catholic community.

     I do ask you all my fellow Knights, to let us reflect as to why we became Knights. I ask you gentleman to go back ,and reflect to the time when we decided to become a member of this Order to serve God and with our Mother Mary. “Mary and her Knights a team beyond compare in the service of her Divine Son. Mary, heart of the Holy Family, Tower of Ivory with her knights for justice of the downtrodden “.

We all took a solemn pledge in our 1st Degree ceremony. We also listened to the words of the Grand Knight and the Deputy and Chancellor and all the other officers at that ceremony.

Gentleman let us also reflect upon what the basic principle of our order is “Charity”.

Every monthly business meeting I look forward to seeing all of my brothers at those meetings and the events in which support our community.

In closing, I ask each of you and I make a formal plea as your Deputy Grand Knight, please to come to your meetings ,please come to your events and participate. This is your council ,this is your catholic community this is how we support our faith through our deeds. For without you my brothers, there is no council.
