Pope Pius XII Assembly 941

Pope Pius XII Assembly was formed in 1958. As the number of Sir Knights increased in the Easton Area and the addition of the Bangor and Nazareth Councils it was deemed prudent to form an Assembly in the local area. With the approval of Supreme, the Assembly was formed and the Associated Councils were Union Council 345, Easton, Father DeNisco Council 3862, Bangor, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Council 4282, Nazareth, Father Stommel Council 4545, Haycock and Cardinal Strich Council 4649, Quakertown and the most recent addition St Rocco's Council 14082, Martin Creek. Cardinal Strich Council 4649, Quakertown recently broke away and formed their own Assembly.

Our Assembly is located in Easton PA and we are part of District 34. Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month, except December, beginning @ 7:30 PM at various Supporting Council locations.




With the approval of Supreme, the Assembly consists of:


As the Patriotic Order we support fund raisers for veterans, memorials, and those who currently serve our Nation. The Assembly supports all Pro Life Activities – 2014’s Run For Life. Members with Regalia serve as Honor Guard for Funerals of Fourth Degree Members, as well as Special Mass Ceremonies as requested.


The Assembly has a voluntary Chalice Fund for members who wish to participate. In the event of the death, of a member of the Chalice Fund, a Chalice is supplied to the Family, to be donated to a Priest or Church at the request of the Family. All Assembly members are encouraged to join. See Anthony Barazzuol or Chris Adams for details.

Faithful Navigator Message

The third "Big Raffle" was a success. The income has been forwarded to a very worthy organization; The Archdiocese of the Military. Thanks to all who sold and purchased raffle tickets.

The Tommy Zitto event was attended by more than 100 people. After a terrific dinner at The American Legion Post 9, attendees were wowed by the show put on by Tommy Zitto and his accompanists.

Remember to ask your eligible candidates in your councils to become members of the Fourth Degree. The Exemplification is months away but now is the time to get your candidates to the mandatory degrees. The Exemplification will take place at The Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Fogelsville on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

If you have any regalia items that you no longer will use, please consider donating those items so another Sir Knight can participate in events that require regalia. What a more fitting way to honor your unused regalia than being used by another Sir Knight.

June 30, 2017 is my last day as Faithful Navigator of Pope Pius XII Assembly. It is a very emotional moment to me because all of you have been great Brothers to me and more importantly, I can proudly say that I have also found friends in you. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the immense support and cooperation that you all provided during the last 2 years. I will always remember our Assembly work especially the "Big Raffle" projects. Your support and our bonding was a source of strength. In a lot of different ways, I have experienced your kindness, and so please let me extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you. The guidance I received from you, the encouragement and comfort and above all, the friendship, helped me stay strong. It is a weak moment for me and in this moment, I would like to say, thank you all for everything that you gave me.

Vivat Jesus.
