Worthy District Deputies and Brother Knights, Gentlemen:

As the Holy Spirit dwells within each of us we are to be the example of what Jesus should like to all those that know us, especially as Knights. Be that example. Set the standard and do what is right…just because it is the right thing to do. In light of the current health issues I offer the following:

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID19) situation and its impact globally, you recently received a memo from our Supreme Knight strongly recommending cancelation of all personal contact meetings, events and travel for Knights of Columbus business until further notice.

The Washington State Council will fully comply with the Supreme Council’s directive to protect our members and their families.  At the same time, we should step into the breach of the moment where possible and live out the commitment to our Order’s principles of charity, unity and fraternity.  We were created for this moment, and we must act for this moment.  We are the strong right arm of the Church.

Brothers,

What a Lenten season this has been. In a time of alms giving, our faith has been challenged. My thought about the closing of our churches is how much I miss it when it’s gone. I think what I will take from the COVID 19 scare is how thankful I am to live in a country where I can celebrate my faith without fear, whether in a sanctuary or in my home.

Not being able to attend mass reminds me of other places in the world, and in the beginning of Christianity, where they were not able to worship publicly. We read about it, and our KofC has aided and assisted countries where this takes place, but it never hit home until now. Read More...

Brother Knights,

I trust you are watching the Knights of Columbus video series inspired by Bishop Olmsted’s Exhortation, Into the Breach.  All 12 episodes premiered on Ash Wednesday at kofc.org/intothebreach.  The videos are amazing and being circulated widely.  The Seattle Catholic Men’s Conference was going to open this year by showing the Knights of Columbus trailer video.  The conference has been postponed due to the Coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak.

Please continue to pray to Our Lady for her intercession to help us develop a vaccine to thwart COVID19.  May Our Lady protect us and help us get through these challenging times. Read more...

My brothers,


What a strange time we find ourselves in these days. What a test of faith and character we face during this pandemic, but brothers, what an opportunity! The Knights of Columbus were made for times such as this, and it is not the first crisis the Order has faced. Our fathers and grandfathers were tested, and it is our turn now. They passed the test, and I am confident that we will, too!

First and foremost, you must take care of yourself and your families. The CDC, Supreme and many other sources have great information on how stay safe and self isolate. Below are some good links for you to review: Read More...

The Washington State Council is faced with a number of uncertainties as we enter the fourth quarter of our 2019-2020 fraternal year. Many of us are now viewing Mass online. We may not have the benefit of the Eucharist; however, God does hear our prayers. Please join me in Praying a Novena for protection of all during the COVID19 pandemic and particularly for those infected by the COVID19 virus as requested by Pope Francis and our Supreme Chaplain. 

We will decide and inform all Councils during the first week of April whether the Washington State Council will participate in the 2020 Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose. Read more...

Hi Brothers,

Along with the Coronavirus Pandemic came a global re-evaluation of people's priorities. For most of us, it has been a great reminder of how important our health is.

We have all been reminded how to wash our hands and how to keep ourselves, as best as possible, from becoming the next person with this sickness.

Another thing  that many have discovered is how fragile travel plans can be. How many of you know somebody close to you who have planned a big trip and are now dealing with refunds, and rescheduling and disappointment? Read more...
