Grand Knight's Report

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the outgoing officers for their service to our council. These jobs are very challenging and they did a wonderful job.

To Bill Shane who took the job of Grand Knight under less than ideal circumstances and did an outstanding job, “Thank you."

I want you to all know how humbled and honored I am to serve as your Grand Knight. We have many challenges before us but with all of us working together we can face them and build up our council. We need new members to our council if each one of us would bring in just one new member we would be in good shape. Would you please help? We are blessed with wonderful group of new officers and I see nothing but good things ahead.

Please pray your rosary. Kyrie Eleison on each and every one of us our families, our nation and the world.
