Brothers all:

 

As Thanksgiving approaches, we all begin to consider the blessings received from Almighty God this past year.  I found a few things for all of us to be thankful for, which may have slipped by us.

Membership

From the Membership Director:

This past week we discussed many facets of membership:

1. The parish has 3 separate family structures: young adults, growing families and senior adults.

2. Each requires an approach that fits their needs.

3. It all begins with a conversation, presenting the benefits of the Order and the value it presents to the family.

4. Personal experiences of your Knight's journey makes it a valuable conversation.

5. Invite the family to join - we are building the church one Knight's family at a time!
