He will be in the post for the next three years
This is the time of year when KSC councils welcome new officers. Starting with our new provincial grand knight, Brother Alf Swain, all will be officially installed into their new positions during the 11.15am Mass at St Mary’s, Little Crosby, on Sunday 24 April.
Bro Alf, who had previously been deputy provincial grand knight along with action and youth officer, was elected to his new post at the provincial council meeting held at St Anne’s, Ormskirk, last December. He will be in the post for the next three years, succeeding Bro Ray Pealing who had been grand knight for the past four years, having served an extra year due to the pandemic. We thank Bro Ray who performed the office with distinction during that time.
• Nationally the order has been holding a weekly series of Stations of the Cross from different venues across the whole country during Lent, starting on 2 March and ending on 13 April. These services have been transmitted via Zoom and Facebook to enable members to participate online.
• Members of the order locally were present at the Vigil for Ukraine held on the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral on 4 March. Another member, Bro Danny Grimes, has been visiting Australia and attended Mass at St Patrick’s Catholic Cathedral in Melbourne on Ash Wednesday – a Mass concelebrated by the Archbishop of Melbourne, Peter Comensoli, and Bishop Mykola Bychok of the Ukrainian Catholic Church. Bishop Mykola spoke movingly of the need for peace and said the Russian people were not their enemies
