UPDATED (4/15/2015): The AWD Chili cook-off that was scheduled for Saturday April 18th will be postponed until the Fall. Thank you to all those who helped set it up and who were planning to participate.
The District will be hosting its First Chili Cook-Off on April 18, 2015 at St George’s Catholic Church, 19199 St George Church Road, Valley Lee, MD. Not only are we expecting to have some great food but we are looking to relax with families and have some fun. Each District Assembly should try and make this event. Knights of ALL Degrees are encouraged to dust off their favorite / award winning chili and corn bread recipes and come down to Southern MD to earn right to call themselves the “Top Chili Cook Off Chef in the Archdiocese of Washington Diocese Fourth Degree."
A special thank you to Father Andrew White Assembly and Father Sabastien de Rose Council for their gracious offer to host this event.

"I offer a hearty welcome to our new Sir Knights," he added.
As Holy Week draws near, please consider commemorating the liturgical season of Lent by attending the Relics of the Passion prayer program at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C. This unique event, organized in conjunction with the Apostolate for Holy Relics, is a rare opportunity to venerate eight relics of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ in a program of prayer and meditations. It will take place on Saturday, March 28th at 10:00am and 3:00pm.
Among the relics that will be available for veneration during the program are: a piece of the Crown of Thorns, a piece of the True Cross, and a piece of the table from the Last Supper. Venerated previously by over a million people across the United States and around the world, this event is the first time that these extraordinary relics of the Passion will be at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine.
Brothers of the District. I wanted to drop you a note to wish you all a Blessed and Holy Christmas. During this time of the year we take stock of what our Lord and God has provided. All we have to...
