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!
