Has anyone here ever served as Grand Knight and District Deputy in the same fraternal year?  That's the situation I will be in soon.  If so, I would like to hear from you.Continue

At mine, about half, including our worthy grand knight.  It varies.

I'm interested in joining the KoC but I don't want to join an 'old mans club'.  In your Hall how many men are under the age of 40?

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.


Comment by Steve Imparl on July 5, 2012 at 3:35pm

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?
