District 11 Knights and their families

receive "Garment of Grace"

At the start of the Fraternal year one of the District 11's priorities was to bring members from all six Councils together for Fraternity in a faith building event.  I asked Brother Loui Stevens if he would make a presentation to all of the Councils on the "Garment of Grace".  He did a wonderful job and each time I heard it, it was like the first time.  At each meeting more and more signed up.  Grand Knight Mark Williams of St. Jude Council #13599 offered to host the event and asked Father Hudgins, Pastor of St. Jude Catholic Church, to Invest those attending with the Blessing of the Brown Scapular of Mt. Carmel.  On Saturday, February 1st there were 55 Brother Knights, family and friends who attended and it was a breathtaking site to see.  Father Hudgins said he has never invested that many people at one time.  It was a proud day to be a Knight of Columbus.
