Grand Knight’s Report – May 2024


Vivat Jesus Brother Knights! I just got back from the Virginia State KofC Convention and I saw a little of how other Knight Councils are doing and what problems they are running into. Which is pretty much the same as we are facing. I would like to see us being a little more involved with our parishes and not asked to help just when there is a beer tent or a grill to be manned. It was inspiring to see over 170 Knights get together. Our State Chaplin, Bishop Loverde, wanted me to pass on that he continues to pray for all the Knights and their families and Fr Sal, one of our Assistant State Chaplains, wanted us to pass on to our councils to please thank our priests. They pray daily 7 times for us and our families.I look forward to seeing what ideas come up from this weekend and what lies ahead for Council 562
