For the past year, Ed Marsalis has been the Grand Knight of Council 9543 and has done an outstanding job! We would like to thank Ed for his work with the KC and St. Francis.
The Knights new fraternal year has begun and Mike Robinson has been elected as Grand Knight. Following the lead of previous Grand Knights, Mike plans to continue the Knight's history of service to our parish.
We appreciate the KC's dedication and time in making our parish a family that serves God and administers to others.
