We have one last month to catch our breath before we continue our more solemn and important duties. I am very pleased at the support which our officers and Sir Knights have shown through the beginning of this year and I Pray that your ongoing diligence and enthusiasm will continue, as these are the attributes which give us our Fraternal strength and are the markers by which any successful Commandery can be measured .
The Orders will not begin again until March, allowing us an opportunity in the next two months to hone our skills. We have within our ranks some of the most knowledgeable Sir Knights in Templary and it should be the goal of each of us to learn as much as possible from them and to emulate the best of their characteristics as part of our continuing journey, and our own growth, individually and as a Commandery. I ask respectfully for your co-operation in these matters.
Soon we will continue the Orders and I look forward to the many opportunities we will all have to learn and to share our knowledge with those men about to be dubbed as Sir Knight. Remember that we have a duty and a responsibility to confer as much of the reverence and honor that these Orders inherently possess to the candidates, and in a manner that will make an indelible mark upon both their lives and their character. They deserve our best.
I would ask each Sir Knight participating to remember your own experience being Knighted and the others you have witnessed to glean from those memories a spark that may help you make a memorable and lasting impression upon our candidates.
Our Commandery Church Service will be on the first Sunday in May at the First Congregational Church in Northbridge. Please RSVP to S.K. George Sarafinis or myself.
To all other Sir Knights privy to this correspondence, you are welcome to support us with your presence and I encourage you to do so.
P.S. Remember that when we share our lives, we Righteously affect the souls of others.
With fond Fraternal greetings,
S.K. Mark A. Rossi
