From the Membership Director:
This past week we discussed many facets of membership:
1. The parish has 3 separate family structures: young adults, growing families and senior adults.
2. Each requires an approach that fits their needs.
3. It all begins with a conversation, presenting the benefits of the Order and the value it presents to the family.
4. Personal experiences of your Knight's journey makes it a valuable conversation.
5. Invite the family to join - we are building the church one Knight's family at a time!
