My Brother Knights, 

Hello men from the guy that just went successfully from “Who’s Who to Who’s HE??”

Yes Sirs, it your IPSD Pat. Just so I wouldn’t fall off the face of the earth, I accepted the role of Ceremonials Director to help our State Deputy. While Ceremonials work has calmed down quite a bit, with all the changes since when I joined, this is still an important and necessary step to full Knighthood.

All Members must take their Degrees (3) to become a member in full Knighthood. Without such, one cannot hold any office of leadership. Not as a Council Officer, or Chairman of any Council activities, nor can one join the 4th Degree. |

There is great value in spending the 40 minutes or so to view the now combined Ceremonial of all three Degrees whether it is online, from a DVD, or an in-person format. The message is the same. This contains all the lessons of each degree and adds a significant amount of knowledge of the Order concerning the thinking of our founder, Fr. McGivney, when started this wonderful organization and how we see ourselves today.

Please make every effort to get all your members, including the online eMembers, through their degrees. You’ll be glad you did…and so will they.


All District Deputies AND Grand Knights are asked to submit the required form 450 (Report of Degree)  to Supreme and…PLEASE send me a copy so I can assist when Supreme starts asking where the form is from a degree. I will also maintain a database of reports for the State Council and your benefit as well.

Thanks again, and may God Bless each and every one of you, my Brothers.

Vivat Jesus!
