Raymond R. Sommer (Shirley)
574-288-4305 Talking to Master Dale Hager it is OK to have a priest from other assemblies as
RRJSommer@aol.com Faithful Friar without transferring to them. He has one that caters to 3 Assemblies.
Faithful Purser The passing of SK Joe Ortega has left our Pilot position vacant anyone who wants to
Larry Landy (Jeanette) step up to leadership roles in the assembly here is an opportunity to advance in the
LLLSpike@aol.com ranks. We also need a Scribe to fill the offices.
Lent is here and our disciplines are in force and I feel that we need to be more
OPEN Patriotic in our thinking for March. February left me the question how can we be more
patriotic after meeting the son in law to Red Benson , a highly decorated Army Colonel
Charles L. Baumgartner, Jr. (Elaine) and Congressional Metal of Honor Winner, leaves me with a sense of honor to know
574-232-8862 that the men and women who serve in our military, have sacrificed and done so much
Outer Sentinels for us, Honor and Patriotism enabling us to Live Free!
Thomas Arata (Patricia) I implore all to pray for these Honorable men and women this lent and our leaders to
pick the right choice, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”! We all can change
Trustees thing’s through prayer and fasting.
William E. Szajko (Kathleen)
As a final note, Spring is in the air, the ground hog seen his shadow meaning 6 more
email@example.com weeks of winter, Think warm thoughts and Be Honorable, Patriotic and by all means

Faithful Friar News
With this Lent comes an opportunity to renew faith.
As knights in the Fourth Degree it is our
Privilege to represent our Order’s commitment
To the virtue of Patriotism.
The love of country is not simply an excuse
To wave the Flag it is rather a pledge
To love neighbor. First as a commandment
Of Christ and second it says that our
Nation is a protector of all God given rights.
This is not a political journey, but a religious
Journey. Let us then use this Lent to grow
Closer to the Father in Haven. The Bishop has ask us
To pray before the Eucharist, and so we shall.
The church asks us to follow the traditions of Alms giving,
Praying extra, and fasting, and so we shall. We do these
For love of God and Love of God.
Have a great Lent.
