With this website I would like to say thanks to my Brother Knights of St. James Council 4949, who have given me the honour serving St. James Council 4949 as their Grand Knight for two terms from 2010 to 2012. Thanks to all officers of St. James Council 4949, helping me during my two terms in office as Grand Knight, to make it a memorable one. Your commitments to your job is reflected in our successes achieved for our Council. Thank again for a job well done. Please continue your good work for our Order, by supporting our new Grand Knight and officers during the next fraternal year.
Thanks again for this wonderful experience, filed with lasting memories.
During my terms as Grand Knight for St. James Council 4949 (2010-2012) I have said many times:
"As more you understand the principles and goals of the Knights of Columbus, as more you would like to get involved."
Serving the Knights of Columbus since 1994, inspired by our Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson many other Knights including my own enthusiasm for the Knghts of Columbus, I have created this website.
Regina and myself, had the opportunity to meet so many new people, which we call now friends. With my twitter account I’m interacting with many Knights from Councils located in different countries, sharing our experiences as Knights of Columbus members.
What we have all in common, is the willingness and the Knights of Columbus spirit, helping, when help is needed.
I would like to invite you to visit all sites including links, which will give you an overview of activities of the Knights of Columbus, including other jubjects were I feel close too.
We at St. James Council 4949 have demonstrated again what charity is all about. The Schubert Centre, Gateby Place and Columbus Court built by St. James Council 4949, are prime examples to our commitment to our community at large.
