Today, June 11 is a somber day for us traditional Knights, as it is the 6th anniversary of Fr. Kenneth Walker FSSP’s death.
For those who are unfamiliar with Fr. Walker, he was a priest of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), ordained in 2012, and offered the Latin Mass exclusively. He was assigned to Mater Misericordiae Latin Mass parish in Phoenix, Arizona. And became chaplain for the new Knights Council there. He even joined our monthly teleconference in the winter of 2013 to help network with other Latin Mass Knights. He was a pious and faithful priest.
Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP
Tragically on June 11, 2014, an assailant broke into the rectory and attacked both Fr. Walker, and his brother priest, Fr. Terra (who was badly injured). Sadly, Fr. Walker succumbed to his wounds and passed into eternal life. He is buried at the FSSP’s Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska.
Today however, Fr. Walker’s virtues live on in the Knights, as 3 FSSP councils & one squire circle now bear his name.
- Fr. Kenneth Walker Council 16076 – Vancouver, British Columbia (Holy Family Parish)
- Fr. Kenneth Walker Council 16168 – Maple Hill, Kansas (St. John Vianney Parish)
- Fr. Kenneth Walker Council 16878 – Lincoln, Nebraska (St. Francis of Assisi Parish)
- Fr. Kenneth Walker Columbian Squire Circle 5809 – Mableton, Georgia (St. Francis de Sales FSSP Parish)
Please offer prayers today for the repose of Fr. Walker’s soul, and for the conversion of his assailant, Gary Moran.
