The Clergy Banquet was held on Friday, April 26th. State Deputy Gerald Dvorak presented checks for each Diocese in support of numerous programs within each Diocese. Bishop Gruss was the keynote speaker at the Clergy Banquet. He thanked the Knights for their generous financial support of both Dioceses and stressed the importance of Charity that the Knights provide on the local, state and national levels.
He spoke about the Native Americans concerns and asked the Knights to consider helping to provide HOPE to them in particular with possibly assistance in repairing numerous homes damaged by the hail storms last year on the reservations.
The evening ended with a prayer offered for our priests and deacons.
