How to Join!
If you are a practical Catholic man, age
18 or older, we welcome you to join the leading organization of Catholic laymen.
Being a Knight is more
than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your
own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. If you are interested in joining our council, please contact
our Membership/Admissions Chairman, Sir Knight Eddie Velinskie at firstname.lastname@example.org
The way to happiness: keep your heart free
from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget
self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.
