My Brother Knights,
We have a VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY in that we are HOSTING a District 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree ceremony (one of the last in the State of Michigan) AT OUR PARISH of St. Pius X in Southgate THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 24th, which doesn’t happen often. THIS IS A ALL-HANDS ON DECK event for our Council!
Here are the details:
There will be exemplifications of Admission Degree (1st Degree), Formation Degree (2nd Degree) and Knighthood Degree (3rd Degree) on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at St Pius X Parish, 14101 Superior St, Southgate, MI.
Schedule of events:
* Mass celebrated by our Council Chaplain Fr. Bob McCabe at 8AM
* 1st Degree Registration at 9:30AM – Degree begins at 10AM
* 2nd & 3rd Degree Registration at 11:15AM – Degree begins at 11:30AM
* Light Luncheon follows immediately afterwards (around 1:45PM)
Dress code is coat and tie to match the dignity of this event.
Since we are hosting this, I want to make a good showing from our Council. If you can attend this event, please contact me IMMEDIATELY by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 313-247-2110. We need this so that we can reserve a spot (and food) for you.
Officers and Chairmen/Directors are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to attend this in order to make this event a success!
3rd Degree Brother Knights who sponsored someone should attend with their candidates or 1st Degree Brothers.
3rd Degree members are also encouraged to attend these exemplifications not only to welcome our new Brother Knights, but to see the updates that have been made over the past year or two to the degree work. It really hits at the strengths of who we are as Knights of Columbus!
Our Supreme Council Field Agent, Tom Jackson, will also be on hand if you have any annuity or insurance questions or needs.
Again, I need to know IMMEDIATELY if you can attend!!!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I really hope to see you this Saturday to help me welcome our Brothers as FULL Knights of Columbus!
