Knights Receive McGivney Award

From Knights in Action

On Thursday, October 14th, 2010, the Monsignor Dewson Knights of Columbus were officially presented with the Father McGivney Award. Named after the founder of Knights, Father Michael J McGivney, this award recognizes outstanding membership recruitment and retention efforts during the 2009-2010 fraternal year. The Dewson Council grew by over 10 percent during that time.

“We’ve made efforts in our Council to be the sort of organization that Catholic men would want to join: we work to further improve Saint Ann’s and the larger community, while also having a good time,” said Grand Knight Paul Smith, Jr. “I feel our net growth shows that we’ve accomplished that goal.”
