Brother Sir Knights,


Charles Carroll of Carrollton – Every man who signed the Declaration of Independence risked their property, their livelihood, their life.  If the American Revolution had failed, they would have been found guilty of treason.  Charles Carroll, a Catholic, risked more than most, being one of the wealthiest men in the colonies.  So that there was no doubt of his commitment, he signed the Declaration “Charles Carrol of Carrollton.”  He was the cousin of the first bishop/archbishop in the United States – Archbishop John Carroll of Baltimore.  The Fourth of July is celebrated today thanks to Catholic American like Charles Carroll of Carrollton.  Knights of the Patriotic Degree honor our Catholic legacy.

Civic Award Congratulation to all 30 Assemblies that have submitted, (and I expect will earn,) the Supreme Council Civic Award.  This is up from 7 Assemblies earning the Award in 2016 and 24 earning the Award last year.  It is a demonstration of the strong patriotic and Church related programs conducted by the Assemblies of the SC District.  I also thank District Program Director SK Keith Kingren for publicizing the Award and helping to encourage Assemblies to apply.

78th Exemplification – The next Patriotic Degree will be exemplified on October 27, 2018 in Myrtle Beach.

Installation of Officers– Installations of Officers are in progress. By the end of August.  I will  have performed the installation for 28 of the 30 Assemblies.  Kathy and I have enjoyed meeting all of you.  We thank you for your hospitality.

 Let us pray for our country and Church:

Holy Family, pray for us.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, pray for us.

St. Joseph, patron saint of the Universal Church, pray for us.
