There are now 288,000 Knights and hopefully it will be 300,000 by next year and the number is not important but the service of the catholic men to their family and society, ANDERSON said. He further emphasized that as a respected and articulate voice of the Catholic faithful, the Knights of Columbus will continue to defend the Church’s teaching, bishops and priests. He said the K of C will be at the forefront to hear the voice of the Church amidst threats to block the Church’s involvement in controversial issues related to family life.
The 10th National Convention will be in General Santos City by 2015.
