My Dear Brothers,

The winter District Deputy Training meeting went very well indeed. Just over 90% of all DDs attended, Thank you all.

Much new information was given out to the DDs and the surprise of the year; a new, single, combined 1st, 2nd, & 3Rd Degree was viewed. This new format was presented to the State Deputies and the State Ceremonial Directors at the Orlando meeting a couple of weeks ago. Quite a difference from what we are used to seeing.

I have asked our State Ceremonial Director, Marcel, to forward the link for the Degree so each can view it for themselves and a feedback form link that I hope all will be kind enough to complete and send back to Supreme. We do NOT have any answers yet on any of the new Degree potential issues so please hold your questions until I let you know what is next from Supreme. Read more...

Merry Christmas and a blessed new year to you and your families!

We find ourselves in the Christmas season still, looking forward to the Solemnity of the Epiphany (January 5) and the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (January 12).

You may already be familiar with the tradition of blessing homes on Epiphany, but in case you have never heard of it, I’d like to familiarize you with this custom and provide a guide to the simple ritual so that you can carry out the blessing in your own homes this Epiphany. Read more...

Happy New Year!!!

Hope this finds you enjoying the New Year. 

I now have four councils that have not paid their annual liability insurance premium. As promised, I am posting those councils that have not paid. Not only are they jeopardizing the council’s well-being in case of a claim, but our insurance premiums are based on all councils participating. Last year, we had 100% of billable councils pay. We must have the same this year. Read More...

Brother Knights,

Happy New Year 2020!  The Exemplification Fund status chart included in the January bulletin is current as of December 15, 2019.  A $7 fee per each new member brought into our Order is due to WSC soon after the Admission Degree.  If you have a balance due, please mail your check payable to Washington State Council with Exemplification written on the memo line.  Ensure your council number is on the check and please remit your payments in a timely manner.

Brother Knights,

Welcome to the second half of the fraternal year! I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season, sharing good times with friends and family. Now that you are refreshed, let’s hit the next six months with enthusiasm and purpose!

This month we will talk about the need for your Council to have a retention committee. Too often we think of retention as the last bitter task of suspending members from the Council when we lose track of them. I want to change your view of retention to be an ongoing process that starts on day 1 with a member. Read More...

There are a number of upcoming deadlines for submission of reports, applications for recognition awards and contest results during the next six months that Councils should be aware of. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SOME OF THE DEADLINES ARE EARLIER THAN THESE WERE PREVIOUSLY SO THAT THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPILING REPORTS CAN COMPLY WITH STATE AND SUPREME COUNCIL DEADLINES.  Read more...

Hi Brothers,

It's the New Year and hopefully we are all ready to put it into high gear for the Knights of Columbus. When I say that, I really mean that we are gonna work harder at saving our souls this year. Isn't that one of the main reasons why most of us joined the Knights to begin with?

I was taught that we are put on earth to do God's will and that life on earth is a test to see if we are worthy of heaven. Read more...
