To All Worthy Faithful Navigators:

 

     I was recently notified by Dennis Stoddard, Fourth Degree Supreme Master, of my appointment to Master of the New York Third District in the St. Isaac Jogues Province effective September 1, 2016. I have accepted this great honor, and it will be my privilege to lead our District for the next two years. It is only with your support that we can accomplish all the goals and expectations placed upon us.

 

     I have been instructed to set up a schedule for installation of officers in the district. It would be convenient for me if Assemblies in close proximity to each other were installed at the same time and location. This will allow me to install all the Assemblies in a short period of time. Please make arrangements as soon as possible by setting a date with me, or a member of my staff. We would then need  one contact person to provide the time and location of the installation, along with a list of Assemblies that will participate. The contact person should provide us with both their phone and e-mail  address. I would also ask for each Assembly to send me a list of officers for all positions. If you would like a Former Master do the installation, please let me know so arrangements can be made.  Your  prompt cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

 

    At this time, I'd like to introduce my staff, and tell you a little bit about myself and the goals that the

Fourth Degree Supreme Master has set for us.

 

     My District Marshal is Robert (Bob) Guzzo. Bob is currently Faithful Comptroller of the Father Van Rensselaer Assemby 702 in Waterford. He is also currently Treasurer for Waterford Council 237.

 

     My Secretary is Salvatore (Sal) Sgarlata.  Sal has been a long time Knights of Columbus member, and has held many positions including Grand Knight of Fr Joseph H Boldt Council 3357 in Guilderland  and Faithful Navigator of Rt. Rev. Msgr. Arthur J. Reilly Assembly 1915. He currently serves as District Deputy of the 65th District.

 

 It was my honor to have been the District Marshal for the last four years serving first under Former Master Jim Mihalko, and then under Former Master Jim Brown. I will be resigning my position as Faithful Navigator of the Father Van Rensselaer Assembly 702 to take on the duties as Master of the Third District.

 

    

     As District Marshal I was often asked if I served in the military. I was born into a military family.  My father made a career serving our country in the US Air Force. My mother was a Girl Scout Leader who instilled in me the quality of leadership, and how to both take command of a situation as well as to follow orders. In addition, my parents taught me the value of family, cooperation, and a strong Catholic faith. This, and other factors enabled me to move quickly through the degrees, to Color Corps Commander, then to Faithful Navigator, and then to District Marshal, and finally to this appointed position.

 

     One of the tasks set by the Supreme Master of the Fourth Degree is to increase membership by having Bi-Annual Exemplification Ceremonies. This past June an Exemplification Ceremony was held in Syracuse, and on October 8, 2016, the Father Van Rensselaer Assembly 702 will be hosting a ceremony at St Augustine's Parish in Troy NY. All the local Assemblies have been notified. However anyone wishing to make their Fourth Degree is welcome to attend and should contact me, or a member of my staff as soon as possible, but not later than September 9, 2016.

 

      In closing, please pray for all the officers of the Fourth Degree that we may better serve the Church, the Knights of Columbus and each of you. My goal, as Master, is to work together, so that we can better exemplify our four core principles: Charity - Unity – Fraternity - Patriotism.

 

 

 

 

Fraternally,

 

 

 

Alan V Burke

Master, New York 3rd District

St Isaac Jogues Province
