Dear Fellow Brother Knights, Another year of grace has begun! In the year of the Lord 2012. Time is moving on, another opportunity God is giving us to grow
closer to Him. Looking forward is a Christian attitude because it implies a positive outlook, a hopeful outlook. There are so many goals to achieve, so many projects to complete, perhaps even the proverbial resolutions to work on, and its all geared toward improvement. Yet, there are challenges that lie ahead too, and it is precisely here that we can rely on the grace of God and the help of our dear Brother Knights. My wife, Priscilla and I wish you a Peaceful and Joyous New Year and may it brings abundant blessings to each and everyone of you. A grace-filled New Year to all !!
