Navigator's Report 

All Assembly officers with (four) stand-ins were officially installed on the 27th of July by the District Master. The DM reminded everyone our priority should be to recruit new members and perform patriotic functions.

My wife and I attended the Supreme Convention the first week of Aug in Orlando. I was an elected delegate; this was an experience of a life-time.  There were approx. 100 cardinals, bishops, and priests processing up the aisle for daily mass.   What a sight to see! There were meetings and award programs by day, the state dinner and a dining out with our Virginia delegation at a Brazilian steak house. Gary Sinese, from Forest Gump and a strong advocate of the wounded warrior (WW) program was the banquet guest speaker. Supreme has partnered with the Sinese foundation to remodel and built homes for the wounded warriors. If anybody’s interested in attending the Supreme convention in the future it will be held in Philadelphia, Toronto, and St. Louis.

We’ve had two funerals within a week. They were SK’s Thornburg and McNulty.  I appreciate the honor guard members who were able to attend. The Chalice ceremony team (PFN’s Rodriquez, Mele (Thornburg), Burke, and Foley (McNulty) did a great job at both funerals.

The PFN dinner was held this past Saturday night.  There were approx. 80 people in attendance. The State reps were PSD O’Donnell and State Warden Blakeburn. The evening went off well.

Our Assembly open-house will be held here at Fr.Habets on Sunday 7 Sep at 2:00. If you know any 3rd degree Knight who may be interested, invite them. Hopefully, we can bring them on board our patriotic degree. Applications can be filled out and screening done at that time.

Standard practice in the past was and is for potential candidates to be screened for eligibility.  Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson in his report at the convention advised not to use “no time to devote” at this time as a determining factor whether we bring them into the order or not.  He said, we can’t pre-judge why someone doesn’t have the time now but things in their life can change and they may have time for the order a later time.  Let’s remember this when sponsoring and screening a prospective member.

Sept’s meeting will be on the 24th at Msgr. Mickle council 14263 at Cape Charles. Those that are able to attend we will meet at the bridge tunnel parking lot at 6:30 to car pool.

Vivat Jesus,
FN Stan
