Membership in this Fraternal Order is open to Catholic men in union with the Holy See. Membership provides an opportunity for fellowship with those who believe in duty to God, family, neighbors and country and stand unified in defense of those beliefs. Programs are organized to appeal to those interested in assisting our priests, the homeless, the disabled, parish families, and veterans.
Time: Council Meetings (General Members) 6:10 pm – 8:10 pm every 4th Tuesday of the month, Assembly Meetings (General 4th Degree Members) 6:10 pm – 8:30 pm every 2nd Thursday of the month.
- Leadership (Officers): Officers typically serve for a two-year term. Each has specific responsibilities in overseeing the normal business functions of the Council and Assembly.
