Why am I a Knight,

I was asked to be a Knight by my father after I returned home from the service in 1987, it took a couple years for me to actually become a 1st degree, but I am glad I did.  We do so much good in the community and the world.  I am proud to be a part of an organization that is made available to our parish pastor as his strong right arm.  It does make a man feel good about himself when so many good things are being accomplished with his help and the help of others working together.  The old adage of many hands make light work really applies in the case.  Vivat Jesus!
