An Unexpected Journey

The Knights are having our semi-annual Membership Drive this weekend.  Father Steve has allowed us a few minutes at the end of the Masses to talk about our organization.   It’s interesting to hear what the Brother’s speaking at the pulpit some up with.  Each has their own take on their personal “why.”  Why did you join the Knights?  What I’ve found is, why you join and why you participate are two very different things.

I joined because Tony Nardozzi asked me to join every week for several years.   God love Tony, he filled our Council with many brothers.  I joined and promptly did nothing.  It’s a common phenomenon.  I wasn’t assigned a to-do.  But, I  poked around for a long time like that.  Then one day, everything changed.

I had become friends with Steve Betka years earlier when he and I were teaching religious ed.  He sent out an email looking for someone to take over the spot of financial secretary.  Of course, my first response was, “LOL, ahhhhh, no!”  But I kept thinking about it.   I called Steve and we talked it over.   I prayed about it.  I finally said, “yes.”

It has been an unexpected journey.  I didn’t expect to make the friends I have made along the way.   I didn’t expect to have the feeling of contributing to something bigger than myself.  I didn’t expect to get the opportunity to help so many people.

Who knows, maybe you’ll have a similar experience and we can go on the adventure with us.   Want to know more?  Watch the video below.
