Faithful Navigator Thomas Cipich

My Brother Knights, October, 2017    

Greetings. It is my honor to serve you as your Faithful Navigator. Please know that I, and my officers, are here for you.

My term has certainly started off with a bang. Never did I think that I would be in the middle of such a change as the Order and Fourth Degree is going through from our current regalia to the new uniform. The old cliche is that change is good. I am requesting that we take a step back, think about why we became a Knight, and realize the extraordinary good works we have accomplished through our programs and Charitable endeavors. The following link will answer some of the questions you may have in regards to the new uniform: and, should you wish to order the new uniform that can be done by going to this link:  I realize that we all can’t afford the cost of the new regalia and I fully understand the respect that we receive from friends and strangers alike, on how great we appear in our current regalia. Should you have any comments in regards to this change, please let me know and I will forward them to our District Master so that he can share them with his superiors.

Now, let’s move on to the coming year as we continue with our good works and generosity that has made the Knights of Columbus the epitome of all organizations world-wide. We have many 3rd degree members in our Councils that need to be introduced to our Patriotic degree and invited to join our ranks as a Sir Knight. The next Exemplification of the Fourth Degree will be on February 17, 2018 in Oak Brook.  Information will be forthcoming in regards to that Degree so let’s begin our recruiting efforts now.  We will also be asking for you to assist in our Ad Book sales which assist in the costs of the Exemplification as well as our Assembly’s good works. Details will be out soon for this program as well.

We will remember those who have gone on before us by hosting our Annual Memorial Mass on Wednesday, November 1st at Holy Ghost Church 700 E 170th St. South Holland, Il. Mass will begin at 7:00 PM and those participating in the Honor Guard are asked to arrive at 6:30pm. After mass we have refreshments along with our yearly Turkey shoot.

I also request that you keep all of our clergy, active and retired, in your prayers along with all of our active duty military, our veterans and our 1st responders who serve us so faithfully every day.

In closing, thank you for all you do for your Council and our Assembly living our Orders principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and, as Sir Knights, Patriotism.  Know I am here for you and am available to assist you and respond to your requests and concerns.

Vivat Jesus
