The time has come for us to focus on what makes this organization so special! I am talking about Ritual. All of you as DeMolays have a uniqueness that you bring to the table and believe it or not , the ritual that we perform will help bring that special quality out!
That being said, we need to act to better ourselves as individuals and as a chapter. The state ritual competition is coming up at conclave and we have some national Ritual tournaments coming up within the next couple of months. I challenge each end everyone of you guys as Colorado springs members to strive for excellence and set goals for yourself. Set a goal to not only learn your parts for your office, but the ones that you would like to hold at any time in the future! Dad Pilato and I will be working with the Councilors to set dates for ritual practices and initiations. Please keep an eye out and check http://csdemolay.weebly.com on a regular basis to see what your Master Councilor and Chapter Advisers have to communicate.
