The Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout, Bishop of the Diocese of Richmond, celebrated Mass at St. Stephen, Martyr Roman Catholic Church (SSMRCC) on October 22nd. The Bishop was there for a ground breaking of a parish expansion project and to officially install their new priest, Father Charles “The Giant” Ssebalamu. Our very own SK Bob James was there to support All Saints Assembly 2185.
For most men who follow Jesus, there comes a time when duty extends beyond our own lives, beyond how we lead our families, and into how we serve our fellow man. That's what the Knights of Columbus is all about. The Patriotic Degree allows knights to take this one step further. "Sir Knight" is more than a title. It's an honor.
We invite you to join us on our journey as patriotic knights.
