Hello Brother Knights,

On Sunday, February 9th I sat in on a Major Degree hosted by our very own Lansing Council. For those of you that don’t know what a “Major Degree” is, it is basically your first, Second and Third Degree all in one stop.

I have been to a couple of First Degrees since I made mine, but I have not been to a second or third degree since making my own about 10 years ago. I have to admit, I think I liked the old way of doing these degrees a little better, but this one was just as enlightening and I strongly encourage you, if you haven’t been to a degree as a spectator, you should definitely try and make one.

The degree teams did a great job teaching the degrees of our order to the candidates and Brother Knights. I want to give a special shout out to our very own First Degree team that our own Lansing Council has put together. These guys did a phenomenal job, and I’m proud of each one of them and the way they represented our council; Chris Siatta, Rich Baltrus, Ken Cuprisin, Mike Kabala, Gene Sanchez, Bob Layne, Howard Morrison and Matt Martinez.

If you get a chance, I highly suggest you take in a first degree by our own team, as a spectator and watch our guys in action.

We still need your help and co-chairpersons for the following programs;

  • Annual Council Raffle - April, 2014
  • Council Golf Outing - June, 2014
  • Cheeseburger Night - August, 2014
  • Supreme Essay Contest for Students - August, 2014
  • Soccer Competition - August, 2014
  • Lansing Autumn Fest III - October, 2014

Prayerfully consider attending our next meeting and stay afterwards to learn more about these great programs, we need your help to run.

Mike Wysocki, Grand Knight

2014 Advance Rank

Congratulations to Kenneth "Buzz" Kristin (standing left) who joined Lansing council and took his 1st through 3rd Degrees and to Sir Knight Larry McGrath (standing right) for taking his 4th Degree.

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!
