First-ever 4th Degree Ceremony hosted at JBSA-Lackland AFB.

Greeting Council and Assembly Leaders:

I am proud to announce we will have the first-ever 4th Degree Ceremony hosted at JBSA-Lackland AFB.  Many thanks to the brothers of New Braunfels Assembly 1791 and JBSA-Lackland Military Council 17179 whom are hosting the venue on my behalf.

This exemplification is the one you want to be a part of since we have U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor recipient as the honoree for the ceremony and guest speaker for the banquet.  Major General Patrick H. Brady, U.S. Army Retired, is a resident of New Braunfels and is a member of Assembly 1791.  The biography is enclosed in order to read about the General’s heroic acts during the Vietnam Conflict as a dust-off pilot.  I am praying the biography will help bolster candidate and sir knights to register for this venue.  Sir Knight Will Villegas secured the invitation for Major General Brady and is my point of contact for this venue since he is an active duty U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and is facilitating the base access and protocol for honoree.  If you have any questions, please contact him directly at mobile phone: (702) 279-9311 or email:

With this, registration is open today in order to start the vehicle base access process.  All passengers must provide full name and appropriate identification.  The spread sheet and registration forms will be provided by me or Sir Knight Villegas.  Send us an email directly.  If the driver and passengers do not have an active duty or retired military, they will have to register on base and a police background check will be accomplished.  Hence the reason for the spread sheet to be return NLT 1 January 2020 to myself, and Sir Knight Villegas who will perform the pre-coordination with the base security forces.  Payment is due to me directly, no exception since we have to firm up the contracts with military base for the catering of the venue. 

Just an administrative note, the respective Assembly Faithful Comptroller will order red KofC folder and prepare certificates with the Honorees Name tagged to the certificate for each of your candidates that sign-up for the venue.  The 4th Degree Social Baldric and 4th Degree Lapel Pin PG 113 will provide to every candidate as part of the registration fee.  The candidate’s meal is provided through the Candidate Registration Fee of $70.00.

Finally, contact me or Sir Knight Villegas for the documents in order to start the registration process:  Meal Invitation Spread Sheet, Registration Form, Hand-out for Advertisement, Fillable Form 4, and Honoree Biography.  I am praying for a large turn-out for this venue since Major General Brady is the Honoree and this is the first-time a 4th Degree Ceremony in San Antonio will be held on a military installation.  Please encourage all eligible candidate to sign-up.  Vivat Jesus!

52nd annual Knights of Columbus International Amateur Golf Association (KCIAGA) tournament

The 52nd annual Knights of Columbus International Amateur Golf Association (KCIAGA) tournament will be held in the Montgomery County Area the week of June 8 through 12, 2020.  Father T. A. Bily Council 5921, Willis, Texas is the host Council for the tournament.  The KCIAGA Board of Directors would like to invite you, your family, and any fellow Knights to participate in this tournament.  This 36-hole event will be played at Panorama Country Club and River Plantation Country Club.  These two challenging par-72 courses have a myriad of risk reward holes and gorgeous views.  We start off with a 4-ball scramble on Wednesday at Panorama Country Club that always been a day of fraternity, comradery, and fellowship.  Individual play on Thursday and Friday will be at Panorama Village CC, Panorama Village TX or River Plantation Country Club, Conroe TX.  There are three evening events planned for tournament week.  We start off with a Welcome Social and Dinner on Wednesday, then “Texas Bar-B-Que” on Thursday and the Awards Banquet on Friday. 

We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new friends.  This year’s headquarters hotel is the Fairfield Inns and Suites, in Conroe TX.  We will play golf at Raven’s Nest Golf Course, Huntsville, TX and Panorama Country Club, Panorama Village, TX.  These two challenging courses are waiting to challenge you and reward you.  Please send in your entry form early as hotel space is limited and it is anticipated for this tournament to fill quickly.

The International Golf Association of the Knights of Columbus was founded in the state of Missouri in 1969 by an association of men headed by Brother Jim Gormley, our first President, for the purpose of providing an opportunity to Knights of Columbus members, on national and international levels, to fraternize and enjoy the sport of golfing.  The name of the Association was changed to its present title, KCIAGA, to assure that its tournaments were open only to amateur golfers who are Knights of Columbus members in good standing. Through the use of a handicapping system even the less skilled golfer has the opportunity to win a tournament award. The tournament and its family social events promote the principle of fraternity and closer ties in brotherhood. 

The first tournament in July, 1969 and the 50th Golden anniversary tournament were held in St. Louis, Missouri.  So far, the tournament has been held in over 48 cities in the United States and Canada.
