Open Social gathering unites new faces with legacy members
New faces, new recruits, awesome chili and a gathering of legacy and Knights, young and older all came together to welcome men of the SJN Parish considering membership in the Knights of Columbus.
We’ve never done this before, so we didn’t know what to expect” said Grand Knight Bob Gonzalez. We have our formal Open House events during the year, but never an informal meet and greet. Judging by the response, I was excited to see interest in serving the parish and doing God’s work through the Knights of Columbus” he added.
“We want to continue to create touch points where men who are looking to grow their faith, serve our parish and community have an outlet that includes fellowship and camaraderie.” Said Arturo Diaz, Council Membership Director.
The next Knights Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, September 26th at 7:30pm in rooms E & F.
