Council Degree Ceremonial


Dear Brother Knights,

Our council is going to conduct a Ceremonial of Charity, Unity and Fraternity on Saturday morning, June 4th at 10AM in the church. Fr. Morgan will be present. There are 4 new candidates that will be inducted into our council. This will again earn us the Star Council Award.

If you have not seen the new ceremonial, you are invited to attend and observe it. Also, the ceremonial is open to everyone and not just members. Feel free to bring anyone in your family. Also, if you have never taken your Third Degree in the past, you are invited to participate in the ceremonial and become a Third Degree Knight. If you would like to participate, please contact Bob Rooney at ( or (516) 456 5738), so that he can make the proper arrangements. The entire ceremonial takes about 35 minutes. After the ceremonial, we will have some light refreshments in the CLC.

Please consider welcoming our new members into our council by attending this ceremonial.

Vivat Jesus!!!

Into the Breach - A must view series for all Catholic men.


The above link will take you to all the segments of the Into the Breach series. Any or all of the segments  of this series captivate the attention and interest of the viewer. An excellent production of topics and information for Catholic men. These presentations will move you to think about your life, faith, family, and all whom with you come into contact. 
You will come away with a better frame of mind, a warmer heart,  and a better person for the brief time you spend with this wonderful series.
Contact Dean Nikodemski if you have comments or questions. He has been our wonderful guide on this journey as the members have gathered to view and discuss this most valuable resource. Thank you Dean. 

Family Life Program

We need your help!
Contact Mark Mizzer through the member list on this website.

Faith In Action Programs

All Knights should be familiar with the Faith in Action Programs prescribed by Supreme for all councils. What do you know about these programs? Please use the link here to browse and review these important activities. Our council must schedule, plan, and implement some of these programs as they are required by Supreme for all councils.


Becoming familiar with the Faith In Action Program is important for all members because:

  • you need to be able to communicate with others about the different programs and their purpose and goals
  • our council needs members to step forward who have a special interest or talent which they can offer to the success of these types of activities
  • it is suggested that you find a friend within the council who has a similar interest and agree to chair or join a committee together
  • it is a wonderful way for our members to serve our church, families, and community
  • these are things that we all really have in common with each other

Please contact the GK , Tom McElligott, Frank Ferrero, or Mark Mizzer if you have questions or comments about these programs. Let us know if you have a special interest or talent that you would like to share with our council to help us move forward in this endeavor. 



As members we receive an email with a description, excerpts, and links to the current Knighline.  Since you are here, you must be looking or thinking of all that is KofC.

We are all a smaller part of a very big organization. Reading the Knightline gives you some perspective of the big picture. Enjoy.
