 From Grand Knight
Dom Ramirez.....

Hello Brother Knights,

I would like to thank you for electing me as your Grand Knight of our Council. I will do everything in my ability to continue doing the many benevolent and worthy causes that our funding father, Michael J. McGivney envisioned for our Order.

I would also like to thank our immediate past Grand Knight Mike Wysocki for his fine efforts and dedication leading our council. Mike has done an excellent job moving our council forward. I feel we have a great group of Officers and Brother Knights that will help me lead our Council moving forward.

With this being said, congratulations are in order for three of our Brother Knights who received the following Knight of the Month honors in our council; Larry McGrath, Stan Bone and Jim Bis. These brother Knights have gone above and beyond the good of our council – Keep up the great work, brothers!

And this just in, Welcome to our newest Brother Knight who joined the council: Hector Caballero, Jr., who took his First Degree on Thursday, June 26th.

Until Next time, Vivat Jesus!

Dom Ramirez, Grand Knight

New Information!

Attention all third degree members:

December, 2012

Please be advised that I was notified this week that the mandatory 6 month wait period for a Brother Knight to join the Fourth Degree from the date of his First Degree has been discontinued. This means that a Third Degree Brother in good standing can take his Fourth Degree at any time. Realistically he could take his First, Second and Third Degrees on a Sunday and his Fourth Degree the next Saturday.

I hope this clarifies your questions and if I can be of any additional assistance please let me know.

Vivat Jesus!
