Our Newest Brother Receiving Knighthood

On November 17th, Brother John Persil from our Family of Man Council received their Knighthood Degree during a special ceremony held at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church in Sterling, VA. He was escorted by our State Treasurer SK Bob Serszynski and Membership Chairman Brother Mike Poland.

The principle of the Knighthood (formally 3rd) Degree is Fraternity and it reflects the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.

Please congratulate our Brother Knight John on achieving this significant milestone.

100 Years Young!
