On Friday, May 19, the Assembly executed a second turnout in support of Confirmation Ceremonies held at Holy Trinity. Auxiliary Bishop Michael Boulette presided. Color Corps Commander Tom Trbovich led the Sir Knights as the Bishop and Confirmation Candidates were escorted into the sanctuary. Bishop Boulette’s homily was superb as he emphasized the need to commit to our faith and be willing to make the personal changes necessary to be a true follower of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

 

A major change to the Last Rites policy was approved by the membership. A Resolution of Policy supplementing Assembly By-laws was passed:

On Good Friday, a well-attended turnout of 22 Sir Knights was held at Holy Trinity for the Passion of Christ and Veneration of the Cross. A turnout of Sir Knights was held on April 23rd for Divine Mercy Sunday and the Color Corps escorted the Relic of St. Faustina into the sanctuary and to its permanent reliquary in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. The Assembly Color Corps participated in the first of two Confirmations being conducted at Holy Trinity. The first Confirmation was held Friday, April 28 and was presided by Bishop Pfeiffer from San Angelo. Color Corps Commander Tom Trbovich led the Sir Knights as the Bishop and confirmation candidates were escorted into the sanctuary

There will be a Turnout for the next Confirmation on Friday, May 19. Our new Auxiliary Bishop Boulette will preside.

NEWS FLASH!!!!-----The installation of the Knight’s walk Memorial was completed on May 26. Sir Knight Doug Stolo orchestrated this project. Working with Alamo Pavers, the memorial was installed between the Church and the Faith Formation Building. Planning for the memorial has been underway  for several months. Our member’s suggestions proved invaluable and were incorporated into the execution of this project. The Assembly’s fund raising was stellar and demonstrated the generosity of our members as well as their enthusiastic commitment to this endeavor.

WONDERFUL NEWS. Sir Knight John Palmer‘s nephew and Godson was ordained on April 22, Divine Mercy weekend. After 10 years of study, SK John’s nephew Michael Palmer was ordained with one other man. At the Ordination Mass, the Most Rev. Arthur Colgan, C.S.C., assisted by Bishop Yves of France, conferred the Sacrament of Holy Orders on Michael Palmer, C.S.C., and Ryan Pietrocarlo, C.S.C. The Ordination Mass took place in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. After the two Bishops laid hands on the heads of the two new priests, there were 93 Holy Cross priests present who laid hands on them as well.

Sir Knights,

 

     This communication is the final reminder for the Dedication of Sir Knights Walk.  The Assembly will execute a Turnout on Wednesday, July 26.  Showtime is 6 PM at the Knight’s Room in the Banquet Hall.  At 6:30 PM the Color Corps will proceed to the Faith Formation Center.  Sir Knight John Gonzales will fill in as Color Corps Commander. Our goal is to achieve maximum participation and precision.  Five of the six wives of our deceased members, including Mrs. Elvira Gonzalez will be attending the Dedication.  I am planning for the event to last about 10 minutes.  Uniform of the day is Member Regalia Dress, Tuxedo or Color Corp Regalia Dress WITH SWORDS.  Even if you cannot wear your regalia, your attendance is desired---wear your Fourth Degree Shirt, you will participate in the procession.  Unity and Fraternity are the values which will make this undertaking, one of the most significant activities the Assembly has undertaken, an absolute success.  I am attaching the Sequence of Events Plan, developed by our Faithful Captain John Gonzales for your review. Immediately following the ceremony, light snacks and refreshments will be served in the Banquet Hall

       If you have any questions or comments, I am at your service 24/7 at (H) 830-980-4271, (M) 210-286-8379.

 

Fraternally,
