State Deputy Richard Johnson thanked all the priests and Bishop Koenig for their spiritual leadership and told them the Knights are here to serve the parishes.
Bishop Koenig thanked the Knights for all they do, especially in the pro-life movement and assisting at parishes as ushers, lectors and special ministers of the Eucharist.
