“I joined the Knights in 2010.  My father was the Grand Knight of council 2898 in Columbus OH and I wanted to follow in his footsteps.  The Knights are a great organization for those who want to get involved with the Catholic faith a little more and give back to their Church and the local community. I’ve held positions as Inside Guard, Chancellor, Deputy Grand Knight and am currently serving as the Grand Knight.  I reside in Indianapolis with my wife of 30 years, Becky. As a retired military service member the Knights are a great way to continue serving.  Come see what we have to offer – we are always looking for a few more good men!”
