The Invisible Knight - A Message from GK Barry Holland

 

As I am in the Commons of St. Bede, wandering around the town or even in the various Council events people will come up to me and say, "I am a Knight of Columbus!” Well they are “Invisible” to the folks around them as there is no visible sign of their membership! We wear the insignia of our Order proudly on every occasion we have. In Church serving in the various ministries, I am glad to see many of our ushers, Eucharistic ministers and greeters have their insignia proudly shown during their ministerial duties. At our events, we wear the “Knights apron” and we get a lot of comments about how we are serving the community. So, wearing the insignia (lapel pin, tie, name badge, shirt or ball cap) is a sign that the Knights are alive and well within our Church and Community.  Lead by example!  Wear the insignia proudly and often, to the hardware store on the weekends, to a ball game or even to a monthly business meeting.  Don’t be an Invisible Knight.

 

Lost you name badge? Our worthy Financial Secretary can replace it for a small fee. Email him at finsec6828@gmail.com.
