Sir Knights, 

It has been a long time. It was good to see you on Zoom last month.


Just a reminder: If you had not paid your dues please do so today.

As a result of discussions at the Stated Conclave of September 12th, 2020, a motion on separating dues from per capita passed unopposed. In addition, a motion was made and tabled to raise the dues $5.00 to replenish the continuously depleting funds.


To that effect, an amendment to the Sacramento Commandery No. 2’s By-laws will be presented in October. Please join us this month on Zoom. Until then, Sir Knights, may you and your families be safe and take care.

We are living in interesting times.  It has been five months since we came together in person to relish in Friendship and Brotherly Love.   We may still be physically absent from one another, but we are still united and strong, although in a rather informal format, via electronic medium.

It is good to hear and see one another through these means but I look forward to the future when we can once again be among Brothers in person, in peace, and in harmony. Until that time arrives, be cautious, stay healthy, and do not hesitate to reach out to a Companion. We are here for you.


Joseph Wallach
Illustrious Master

As we quickly approach the 2020 holiday season, please keep your eyes and ears open for those who may be in need of assistance.

Despite the pandemic shutdown, our Chapter stands ready to help with a community service project or a more personal activity for a Companion or widow who may have a need for help around the house or errands to run.

If you can think of anyone who may need a hand or of any matter related to how we can help our Companions and our community, please bring it for discussion in our upcoming Virtual Stated Convocation on October 17th.

See the meeting information.

From the Secretary/Recorder Desk

Have you paid your 2020 dues? 

The year is winding down and funds are tight in all three Bodies. 

If your dues cards do NOT read "member in good standing ... through December 31, 2020", then you have fallen behind and now would be a good time to catch up. 

Please contact your Secretary/Recorder at or issue your dues payment at 

Sincerely and fraternally,

Joseph K. Dongo, KYCH
Secretary / Recorder

Book of the Month

The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail

by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln

A nineteenth century French priest discovers something in his mountain village at the foot of The Pyrenees which enables him to amass and spend a fortune of millions of pounds. 

The tale seems to begin with buried treasure and then turns into an unprecedented historical detective story - a modern Grail quest leading back through cryptically coded parchments, secret societies, the Knights Templar, the Cathar heretics of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and a dynasty of obscure French kings deposed more than 1,300 years ago. 

The author's conclusions are persuasive: at the core is not material riches but a secret - a secret of explosive and controversial proportions, which radiates out from the little Pyrenees village all the way to contemporary politics and the entire edifice of the Christian faith. It involves nothing less than... the Holy Grail.
