We are very happy to announce that four of our council members were elevated to Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus on Sunday.

The Fourth Degree is the patriotic degree of the KofC, tasked with fostering a spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the United States of America.

Congratulations to Council Grand Knight Jim Cosgrove, Deputy Grand Knight Mike Walsh, Financial Secretary Neal Cullen and Treasurer Ed Welsh.

The investiture ceremony was held at the Crown Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ and welcomed nearly 300 new Fourth Degree Knights. All told, more than 600 Sir Knights and Ladies attended the event.

Fewer than 18 percent of all Knights join the Fourth Degree, which is optional, and whose members are referred to as “Sir Knight.” Wives of Sir Knights are referred to as “Ladies.”

The most notable members of the Fourth Degree, the Color Corps, is an elective membership. Their distinctive presence in parades, wreath-laying ceremonies, confirmations and other Catholic functions is a visible reminder of the Fourth Degree’s service to the community.

A Great Day at the Saint Anthony Society’s Italian Festival

Assumption 3397 was delighted to take part in the Saint Anthony Society’s Italian Festival on September 19, in Glassboro, N.J. It was a beautiful event. And, a special thank you to everyone who came out and supported our water ice fundraiser!

The family-friendly event was free and open to the public and featured authentic food, entertainment, a bocce tournament and a homemade wine competition. It will also featured singers, including Michael Jones, Greg Armstrong, the Rowan University Student Italian Band and the Sensational Soul Cruisers, who performed classic Motown and R&B.

The festivities took place along Rowan Boulevard and was kicked off with a procession from Saint Anthony Society HQ.

A Very Successful St. Bridget’s Parish Festival

We’d like to thank everyone who came out and made the St. Bridget’s Parish Festival and Fr. Matthew Weber’s 25th Anniversary such a rousing success on September 12. It was a great night of food, music and fellowship. We were thrilled to see just how many people came out, it looked like the walls of the church hall were bursting!

As always, our Knights were honored to  play a small part in the festivities.

CELEBRATING FLAG DAY

On Flag Day 2015, the Knights of Columbus Assumption Council 3397 held a special ceremony outside of the Church of St. Bridget Parish Center in Glassboro, N.J. In attendance were members of Assumption Council 3397, Saint Bridget Pastor Father Matthew Weber and many parishioners.

Flag Day holds a special honor to the Knights of Columbus who, in addition to their many civic and social projects, work to cultivate pride in United States patriotism. From the discovery to the renewal of our nation, civic leaders have often remarked that freedoms come through the Grace of God – that civic duties and religious values are inextricably linked.

In 1492, Christopher Columbus, namesake of the Knights, performed his civic and religious duties, as he would have understood them, when he left Spain for the New World. Our Founding Fathers expressed the Rights of Man as no less than a gift granted by our Creator when they established the United States of America in 1776. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln’s address at Gettysburg was just as explicit. In his desire to heal a country divided by war, Lincoln spoke the words “this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom.

The Knights of Columbus are proud to continue to uphold and promote both American and religious values in these complex times for our nation.
