Lincoln Knights and Ladies Day of Reflection

Nathalie Murad

Lincoln Nebraska Knights and Ladies held a Day of Recollection on February 4, 2017, at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln.  Twenty-nine Lincoln Knights and Ladies participated that led by our chaplain, Monsignor Robert Tucker. The focus of Monsignor Tucker's presentations was on increasing spirituality in the context of the rights and responsibilities that each of us assume as members of the Equestrian Order. The Day of Recollection began with a light continental breakfast and concluded with mass and a luncheon served by the Cathedral of the Risen Christ Altar Society
