Thanks to all the Knights who participated in the pressure washing and painting of Deacon Jack’s house. It was a great effort by the council members. I know I didn’t get a picture of everyone who volunteered time and talent but thank you one and all. This what being a Knight is all about. Mary, Queen of the Knights……Pray for Us!

As part of our Christmas celebration 54 Knights and parishioners made the bus trip to the Gaylord Palms to take in a performance by Cirque Dreams and tour the ICE Charlie Brown Christmas display. 2 Million tons of ice carved by Chinese artisans in 9 degrees. Great time and lots of fun…Some of us even went down the Ice slides.The council also hosted Coffee with a Cop. Around 30 police officers attended including the Chief and Deputy Chief. A great experience being able to sit and chat with our local law enforcement personnel.
