View KnightCast

Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Worthy Brother Knights,

Members of our Order now have a new exclusive benefit called KnightCast. It is a professionally produced webcast series specifically designed to help Knights become better Catholics, better men, better husbands, and better fathers.

The first episode debuts this Thursday, Feb. 25, at 8:00 p.m. EST. It features Supreme Knight Carl Anderson sharing his personal reflections on the significant events of the past two decades. He gives a rare overview of working with three Popes, responding to national crises, battling Covid-19, and expanding our charitable works throughout the world. In this interview, Mr. Anderson also discusses our founder’s beatification, and he shares some of the many meaningful personal experiences of his term as Supreme Knight. Subsequent episodes will share timely, compelling information to promote your personal development and faith formation.

Don’t miss this opportunity to grow as a Knight and a man of faith. Sign up today! The one-time registration process is simple, and you can watch live or on-demand. Because this is an exclusive benefit, your membership number will be required. You can find it on your membership card.

Click here to register

I would love to see all members of our council take advantage of this fantastic benefit.

Sincerely,

Vivat Jesus!

> Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The Equality Act, which is being voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives soon, in many ways does the opposite and needs to be opposed. Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some parish halls to host functions that conflict with Catholic beliefs.
