Welcome, Antonio Banuelos!

ABOUT ANTONIO & THE KNIGHTS

I have been married for 18 years to my wife Mayra and we have three children: Cristina, Antonio Jr. and Katya.

I have been Recorded and Deputy Grand Knight at 644 Basilica of St. John, my home council. With the assistance of Mike Gaspers, Joe Ramirez, and Pat O'Keefe I became charter Grand Knight of the Hispanic Council 14267 in Our Lady of the Americas Des Moines.  I served two years as a Grand Knight and then 6 as Financial Secretary.

I changed parishes to Saint Ambrose Cathedral in Des Moines and noticed there was no council. Father John Bertogli agreed to start a new council and along with David Miller and Joe Ramirez we started Council 15335 at St. Ambrose.

I was elected to the 3rd Degree Executive Committee in 2010 after State Secretary Michael Laake encouraged me to run. He named me State Family Director and Hispanic Outreach Director.

State Deputy Joe Ramirez conferred me the honor to serve as State Program Director (so far my favorite job in State) during his administration. My greatest memory was bringing the Relics of the Seven KC Martyr Priests for a one month pilgrimage across the state.

Along State Deputy Dan Werner, I ran for State Warden for the state and became a State Officer in 2014. I then ran with State Deputy Jon Aldrich for State Secretary, which is my current position.

I am excited about the Knights and all the reach that we have.  I enjoy the work that State Officers and the Membership team put to make the Order available to all the Order.

If you want a reason to be a Knight, do it to change the world. The strength of our numbers and the might of our Savior will lead us to amazing things. We need to discover that potential so it is now me pointing my index finger at you: are you ready to change the world with us? I bet you are!

Antonio- I am in need of the Icon the week of October 1st thru the 8th. We are planning a dedication of our new Rosary Garden on Sunday, Oct 7th, with a living Rosary recited outside, and the 4th Degree honor guard in attendance, also. Let me know if it can be secured that week for Davenport. Viva Jesus!
