On Saturday, April 1st, at All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas, candidates from around Northern Virginia and the surrounding regions were exemplified to the status of Fourth Degree and earned the designation of "Sir Knight.”
The Fourth Degree centers on the principle of Patriotism and is the final level for a Knight of Columbus. Members of the Knights are patriotic citizens and are proud of our devotion to God and country and are to remind the world that Catholics support their nation and are amongst the greatest citizens.
The Knights of Columbus’ Family of Man Council was honored to perform readings at the Stations of the Cross and sponsor a Lenten Soup Supper Night for the Parish of St. John Neumann on Friday, March 24, 2017.
Thirteen members from the Family of Man Council participated in the Stations of the Cross effort prior to the Lenten soup supper, led by Brother Tom Zorn. The Council would like to thank the following Knights who contributed in the readings:
