To my brother Knights of Virginia,


At the October 1st Quarterly Meeting in Fredericksburg, the High Flying councils with at least 10 new members in the 1st quarter were recognized with Jet Fire (balsa wood) Stunt Planes.  If you missed the meeting, the top councils were 13170 – 10 new members, 7369 – 11 new members, 8600 – 12 new members, 5998 – 13 new members and 595 – 19 new members!

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!
