Congratulations, Matthew!

I would like to report that as of last night, June 9th, that I completed the initiation ceremony and I am now a first degree Knight of Columbus of Council 6950. Weird thing was that my sister's godfather was in attendance and I had no clue he was going to be there. He's been a Knight for 23 years and I never knew he was one.

A few months ago, I went to our local council meeting, and the funniest thing happened.  They elected me Deputy Grand Knight.  I'm still not quite sure how that happened.

Anthony, I am glad you enjoyed the First Degree experience. For me, too, the impression the ceremony made upon me has permeated my being and the more I think about it, the more profound it seems. I told the officers of our council and the man who brought me in to the Knights that I appreciate very much the time that went into making the First Degree powerful and memorable for me and the other three new Knights. Being accepted into the fraternity is a great honor; I will give my all to be a worthy member.

Steve-I truly enjoyed my 1st degree, the lecture was delivered with passion and meaninf that I will not soon forget.

Comment by Steve Imparl on July 9, 2012 at 11:23pm

Anthony, you have my prayers that your First Degree exemplification will be as powerful, instructive, and memorable as mine was.

Comment by Anthony M Castaneda Jr on July 9, 2012 at 3:23pm

I am going to my local Council to join tomorrow night. I am looking forward to becoming a Knight. I am also looking forward to working with my area councils in the community.

I have been thinking about since the First Degree Exemplifcation last week. I realize that I'm kind of an infant with respect to Charity, the first principle of the Order. I am going to pray about it. Have any of you Brother Knights had similar thoughts after the First Degree?

Comment by Steve Imparl on June 30, 2012 at 12:56pm

Hello Brother Knights and fellow members of AoM,

I am happy to report that I attended my initiation ceremony on Thursday, June 28, and I am now gratefully a First Degree Knight and a member of University Council number 1687. It is an amazing order to be a member of a fraternity of such fine Catholic men. I am thrilled and humbled, at the same time, and praying for the Lord's direction in living out this honor in the way that He wants and a way that will reflect His glory.

Thanks, guys, for all the support and encouragement at this group here in AoM!

Hello!

Good evening, everyone! My name is Steve (or Steven, if you're like my fiance and are particular about that sort of thing). I'm a writer and illustrator who works as a school custodian in the spare time between daydreaming about how to make a living scrawling and drawing. For about three years, I've been an avid reader of AoM. My first exposure was given by a very bearded buddy of mine who, in his mockery of my inability to grow a proper beard, sent me a link to the AoM "How to Grow a Manly…See More
