Here are some pictures for the AWD Color Corps at the Ordination Mass for Bishop William Muhm and Bishop Joseph Coffey of the Archdiocese of Military Services on March 25, 2019.



The 12 Color Corps members (10 from AWD; 2 from Maryland District) who participated in the Mass and Veneration for the Incorruptible Heart of St. Jean Marie Vianney were privileged to be a part of two great and moving events! For the

Mass, we had 8 Color Corps Members as the Honor Guard leading the Liturgical procession, and 4 Color Corps Members as Honor Guard for the relic carried by a seminarian just in front of the Papal Nuncio in the Liturgical Procession!

We were all in awe of this magnificent relic! I thank the Color Corps members present with me today!

I encourage all Color Corps, Non Color Corps, Knights of Columbus and their families to get to the veneration sessions if possible. There are 2 more days, 9 AM to 5 PM to experience this impactful event! This is an opportunity of a lifetime, and I hope that you can make it either to help out as Honor Guard during the veneration, or just to go to the veneration and see this magnificent relic!

It has been announced by the Master of the Archdiocese of Washington 4th Degree District, SK Col. Micheal Thumm (USMC-Ret), that the Honoree for the 51st District Exemplification of the Patriotic Degree of the Knights of Columbus has been named.
