Sir Knight Edward White first joined the Knights of Columbus in 2003, while a parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Coronado, California, where he was serving with the U.S. Navy. When the Navy brought Ed and his wife, Dolores, to the Washington area in 2006, they became parishioners at Queen of Apostles, and Ed transferred to Council 4522. Ed retired from active duty in the U.S. Navy in 2014, and began working for the U.S. Department of Justice. For two weeks, after retiring from active duty and before beginning his new civilian job, Ed walked a portion of the Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago), an ancient pilgrimage route across the north of Spain to the tomb of the Apostle St. James the Greater, in Santiago de Compostela. While he did not make it all the way to Santiago in 2014, he hopes to finish his pilgrimage at some point in the coming years. At Council 4522, Ed has served as Membership Director, Warden, Chancellor (2x) and Deputy Grand Knight. He has most enjoyed the myriad opportunities to participate in fraternal and charitable activities, such as the Lenten fish fries and the annual Appalachian Mission collection. Ed has also served as Secretary of the Casey Club. At Queen of Apostles, Ed is a Lector and an Extraordinary Minister of holy Communion. Outside the Parish & Council, Ed is now in his second term as Secretary and member of the board of directors of his homeowners’ association. As well, he plays ice hockey in a local adult hockey league, and enjoys reading history, biographies, and political philosophy.
