Rev. Fr. Wesler Hilaire Named Knight of the Month for July 2020

This Knight will celebrate his tenth year as a member of the Knights of Columbus next month. He entered full Knighthood and became a Fourth Degree Knight of the John Paul II Assembly 3299 last year. He attends Council meetings when his busy schedule allows and participates in most of the Council’s events; often officiating at our Faith-related events.

He was born in Haiti and was raised and educated as a Catholic. After High School he went to Honduras where he learned Spanish and a year later, he went to the Dominican Republic, where he received his degree in Philosophies from the University of the Company of Jesuits. He was ordained in May 2014. He speaks Creole, French, Spanish and English.

He has been Parochial Vicar here at St. Peter since July of 2018, and has been our Worthy Chaplain since then.

Since the pandemic lock-down, parish staff, our deacons, and especially our priests have been asked to do so much more. In spite of these burdens, Fr. Wesler played an essential role in the planning and execution of the Council’s Silver Rose Prayer Service.

For his spiritual guidance, dedication, and achievement, we recognize Rev. Fr. Wesler Hilaire as July’s Knight of the Month!

Congratulations, Fr. Wesler!

His award will be presented at an upcoming Council Regular Business Meeting once the pandemic restrictions are lifted.
