Really Big News!

Knightly News January 2020

“Ceremonial Transparency: The new degree covers our core principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity in approximately 30-35 minutes. It is a council-based degree. In other words, it's meant to be run at a council or district level. Ideally you have a presenter for each principle plus a narrator and a Chaplain with assistance from the warden and grand knight to deliver the Knight insignia and rosary. The ideal setting is in church after Mass on Sunday. All are invited to attend the ceremony. There is no more secrecy, we will be fully transparent. All at Mass can be invited to attend the ceremony with no obligation. What a great way to introduce, not only the men of the congregation to the Knights but also the wives, who as we know are some of our best recruiters.” Watch the information video here: https://vimeo.com/374081431/eed24d18e9
