Attention Everyone Re: 18-35 Year Old Knights

Category : Supreme

Supreme has several interesting links that every Council 10 member, regardless of age, should familiarize themselves with:

This is Supreme’s homepage for young adults. Note that this is every Knight between the ages of 18 and 35 years old.

This is Supreme’s Young Adult Chapters home page.  A young adult chapter is a joint venture between a state council, local councils (e.g. COUNCIL 10) and the Supreme Council office designed to respond to the unique needs of young adult members.  The most recent one is launching THIS MONTH (October, 2017) in St. Louis.

Into the Breach

Category : Download Content , Supreme

Download “Into The Breach – An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men“, a PDF document that Supreme is asking all young Knights to read.  The following is part of a description from Supreme’s site:

“Supreme Knight Carl Anderson has challenged all college councils to facilitate a reading and discussion of Into the Breach on their campuses this school year. Meet with your chaplain to discuss the best way to implement the Into the Breach program. Different approaches will suit different councils. You might conduct an eight-week program, in which members weekly read a selection from Into the Breach and meet to discuss it and work toward spiritual goals. You might do an accelerated version of this, meeting a couple of times a week. Or, you might choose to hold a weekend retreat centered on Into the Breach.”

Bishop Robert Barron on Grace and Frassati

Tags :

Category : Vatican

A 10 minute video narrative by Bishop Robert Barron on the “Invasion of Grace” (as in how Jesus got into Simon’s boat and began to give orders).  He asks, “how do we respond when Grace invades our life without asking our permission?  When Grace breaks in, what do I do?”

He also discusses how he came to learn about Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati including pictures.
