A Message From Former Chaplain Father McGuire

Brothers:
I want to wish you a happy and holy Christmas.
This past year has brought so many changes. Having been in Italy was wonderful but
one year was spent being deployed. However, I returned only to be locked down under
Italian Covid-19 laws. I got to know a lot about my house, neighborhood, and neighbors.
These combined to help my ability to speak Italian. But all good things must come to an
end.
In April 2021, I was transferred to Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. I’m now the Wing
Chaplain of the 67th Cyberspace Wing. The Wing has units located in nine states; Md,
Va, Ga, Fl, Ms, Il, Nv, Hi, and Tx. New chapel teams will be arriving in 2022 and jointly
we will provide spiritual care to the Airmen, Guardians, family members, and civilian
colleagues. For me, the “world of cyber” has been a huge learning curve. A fun curve!
God bless you and your families.
Vivat Jesus,
Father McGuire

Messages From The Virginia State Council

From The Grand Knight:
Anyone interested? We need 3 to represent us. , J.P.

From Daniel Doyle:
Worthies,
Please see below. This is the request from the State Deputy to support the National
March for Life. It is being sent out much earlier than I remember from previous years,
I suspect that they are trying to line things up as soon as possible. I would ask that
you spread the word and encourage your membership to consider enlisting to serve
as a Marshal for the March.
The National March for Life is the single largest human rights event in the world. Each
year hundreds of thousands of people participate in the March to show their support
for the right to life. As Knights, we should do so also. Support for life is a fundamental
duty for us. Even if you are not going to be a Marshal, you should be attending the
March as a participant. It’s our obligation. Let’s do it.
Thanks, Dan

From: The Virginia State Deputy
Worthy District Deputies and Grand Knights,
Plans for the March For Life 2022 are being finalized and our support is needed to make
it a success. The goal is for each of our Councils to enlist at least three volunteers to
help marshal the March. Having enough marshals is important to having a safe event.
For decades Virginia Knights have stepped up to provide first aid, clean up, marshalling,
and keeping marchers from engaging with counter protesters.
Please take a minute to sign up using this link to the Sign Up Genius page.

Once signed on, Thom Harrington and I will know you are coming.
The March For Life will take place on Friday, January 21, 2022. You will note that the
starting location will be as before, the National Mall at 12th Street (just off the
Smithsonian-National Mall Metro Station). The same earlier start time is to meet at
8:30 AM at the large recreation vehicle. I look forward to seeing you there!

Respectfully,
Mark Janda
