The day started with the Opening Mass celebrated by Bishop Mark J Spalding, J.C.L.
After lunch the Supreme Knight gave his annual Report. Also Jesse gave Carl Anderson and Bishop Lori a MN pin.
At the Banquet that night was very special, honoring both the Past Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson and the State Deputy of Ukraine.
Past Supreme Knight Carl Anderson was honored for his legacy of service to the Knights. Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly and Supreme
Chaplain Archbishop Willliam Lori paid tribute to Anderson’s leadership, particularly his work to defend persecuted Christians in the
Middle East and his commitment to the pro-life cause. “It’s impossible to list everything that Carl did,” the supreme knight said, “but
every Knight today can bear witness to the difference he has made. Simply put, Carl Anderson is a man of virtue who puts his faith into action.”
