What’s your connection with other Knights of the Council?

The following is an excerpt from the letter signed by Bill Luckey (outgoing FY18 Grand Knight) and Jay Butler (incoming FY19 Grand Knight):

The Knights of Columbus is fundamentally a fraternal organization.  This means that we aren’t just members, but remain in close association with our Fellow Knights.  We have committed to care for one another and will assist your family when you are unable to do so….To whom would you (or your family) reach out when the need arises?  Who would reach out to you?

Please read the Grand Knights’ letter to further understand the need for the request that you list those Knights with whom you have a personal connection using this on-line form or report it to one of the following:

  • Darryl Adams (540-622-8073, credo275@gmail.com)
  • Michael Turner (540-660-1406, mtcinc1@cs.com)
  • Leo Carling (540-631-7555, leocarling4@gmail.com)

The information you provide will be used to identify those Knights who are lacking a personal connection with the Council.  The goal is that each member of the Council truly experiences the brotherhood.

A copy of the Grand Knights’ letter is provided.  If you’d like a list of the Council members, please contact Leo.
