Happenings at the KofC Philippines 8th National Convention

Photos and speeches of the 8th National Convention of the Knights of Columbus of the Philippines are available here.

Here are some photos.

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson meets with Knights of Columbus leaders from the Philippines outside Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral before Mass.

Archbishop of Cebu, Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, delivering his sermon during the Opening Mass of the National Convention.  He is seen here preaching from his cathedra.  Other archbishops and bishops concelebrated.

Here's the Worthy Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson, addressing the brother knights and their wives during the Convention Dinner.  Here he is shown wearing the traditional Barong.  He is also wearing around his neck the jewels of his office as Supreme Knight.  This is proper for all office bearer knights to wear at formal functions of the Order.  The statue on the backdrop is of Fr. George Willmann, SJ, who brought the KofC to the Philippines.

Hon. Hilario G. Davide Jr. addresses the 8th National Convention of the Knights of Columbus in the Philippines.  He is a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines, former Philippine ambassador to the United Nations and probably most importantly, former Grand Knight, former District Deputy, former State of Advocate and a brother Sir Knight!


  1. What made you think that Joel? He is one of the luminaries of the Knights. I saw once an interview where he was asked what he does first thing in the morning and he says to pray the rosary and read the Bible.
