Assembly Chalice Program
We have a tradition in our assembly that when a Sir Knight passes away we honor him with a Chalice. A distinctive 24-karat gold-plated chalice featuring the Fourth Degree emblem along with our assembly name will also have the deceased Brother Sir Knights name engraved forever on the bottom plate. This chalice will then be presented in due time to a Priest, Bishop or local church where it will be used in the holy sacrifice of the Mass. Wherever that may be our brother Knight will be always remembered.
We have placed our chalices with local priests, newly ordained priests, Priests in Mexico and as far away as Fiji and the Philippians.
As of March 2021, The Fr. William A. Schmitz assembly has engraved and placed 52 chalices in memory of our brothers that have gone before us.
The Chalice Program is a beautiful and lasting way to pay tribute to a Sir Knight who has passed away. It is our hope that this lasting example of fraternal brotherhood and respect will offer great comfort to the family members of a deceased brother Sir Knight and worthy member of our assembly.
May all of our deceased Brother Sir Knights rest in peace, and know that they will never be forgotten.
