My Brother Knights


Thanks to all of you who were able to attend and participate in this year’s Annual Ceremonial Meeting at Ahtanum Mission Council 6097 hall in Yakima on Saturday, August 12.  In my mind, it was another very successful meeting for those involved in our ceremonials to start off the New Year! 


I want to express my deep appreciation to WDD Brett Fleming of District 6 and the Brother of Ahtanum Mission Council 6097 for hosting the event and serving our attendees delicious muffins and coffee in the morning and a great lunch. I thought they did an outstanding job hosting the 40 attendees that included state officers, representative of Knighthood, Formation, and Admission teams, District Deputies, and Grand Knights from across our jurisdiction.  We were able to share many good questions, discussions, and issues about our ceremonials that will benefit us all in the coming year.


I want to reemphasize upon each of you about the importance of your roles in encouraging your new and existing members to advance through the Admission, Formation, and Knighthood degrees. Your personal commitment to our ceremonials is a key to the success of your Councils, Districts, the State Council and the Order. The more new and existing members can participate in all three of these degrees, the more dedicated and committed your brothers will be to actively participate in the Council activities and projects.


We have scheduled and organized a total of 29 Knighthood degrees throughout the State from this point forward in the year. That schedule is on the website and it will be updated throughout the year. Your responsibility as Grand Knights and District Deputies is to carefully plan your Admission and Formation Degrees in an appropriate manner so that your members can be ready to participate in the planned Knighthood through the year in your area.


In the coming 2 months, the following Knighthood Degrees are scheduled:







13, 14, 16, 21 & 23


Walla Walla

7 & 17


Oak Harbor

9, 19 & 32

As always, be prayerful in all you do and at every gathering with your Brothers offer special prayers for all members of your Council both active and inactive, for new potential prospects, and for the success of your Council in accomplishing its goals for the coming year


Yours in Christ
