April 2022



As we approach Easter 2022, with all the promises of Spring in New England I ask that we stay focused on the wonderful gift of eternal hope that Jesus won for us by His death and Resurrection.


This Hope is the foundation of our faith, that He will come again and if we live as He wants us to, we will live in his loving shadow for eternity.


But, with all the darkness our world is experiencing now, that Hope can slip from our grasp, and we cannot see anything but the darkness. We need to keep close to our faith and assure each other that His promise is indeed real for all of us… and He will bring the light we need to warm us and destroy the darkness.


On Behalf of Father Joe Paquette, the Rhode Island State Officers, and all the members of the State Council, I wish you all an Easter filled with light and Hope. Let us all thank our Lord for all the good things He has given us.


We had a great meeting with the Men of St. Joseph and agreed to start promoting each other’s events and programs. We and the MOSJ have so much in common, most importantly our deep commitment to growing our Catholic faith, it is obvious that we both can grow together joining forces on our activities. Many Knights are also MOSJ, there is no reason a Catholic man cannot take advantage of the spiritual growth both organizations have to offer us. We look forward to working with them.
