Mableton, Georgia – This weekend the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus for the entire state of Georgia met at the FSSP parish of St Francis de Sales in the Atlanta Diocese. In a 2 hour ceremony they conferred the Fourth degree on 113 men. Both FSSP priests at the parish are Fourth degree Knights. Following the ceremony there was a solemn high mass with honour guard. This was a fancy black tie affair. After mass 300 fourth degree Kights and wives attended a banquet at the church. All comments were positive. The church, caliber of the FSSP priests, music etc had a profound impact on this group of Novus Ordo Catholics. They simply loved it. There were some high level Knights here from several states and they were impressed. The highest ranking man there Vice Supreme Knight Singer gave a talk at the banquet and talked about how much he loved attending the latin mass and about the beautiful church. They are taking this good impression with them to their parishes and the officers will take this good impression to other high ranking Knights. This was the first time this has been done. This is a milestone in the acceptance of the latin mass by the main stream catholic church.
