July 1, 2018- New Fraternal Year
Brother Knights & Worthy Officers:
As we continue our Council's 11th year, let us remember why we became a Knight. Perhaps you felt the need to serve, or just wanted to get more involved in our church and community. Maybe you were just curious. While our personal reasons may differ in various ways, our calling is the same and our mission remains; that we carry the banner of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
I am honored to be the Grand Knight of our council and look forward to continuing the good works that we have embarked upon under the leadership of Brother Steve Pope and our past Grand Knights. I pray that we continue fulfilling the vision and hope of Fr. Michael J. McGivney to be examples of Christ's love for the church, our family, our community, and to those in need.
The Knights of Columbus' new program, "Faith In Action", is not to be taken lightly. Love and faith are more than just feelings and strong beliefs. True faith is visible in our actions and through the sacrifices we offer our fellow man. The work that we do for our council is indeed a fulfilment of Christ's primary commandment to love God and our fellow man. And I thank each one of you for helping me live my life more favorably in His sight.
Rene Sorra, Grand Knight
