Worthy Brothers,

The State Officers have been traveling every weekend this month doing our Supplemental Meetings and enjoying them immensely.  I loved spending time with the people we have visited. Nothing formal, just visiting about whatever you guys want to talk about solving local problems, kicking around ideas and mostly having fun. We have been getting some really good feedback too, so it seems like it's been a good thing all around. 

If  your area would like to have us come visit, let us know and we will put it on our schedule. All we really need is a room for the State Officers meeting and one for the FS's.  The meetings go from 8-12 noon and then we have a modest lunch that the State pays for. DD's or GK's can contact our Training Officer Larry Shaw to set a meeting up. We can do about 10 of these meetings a year....more if you are willing to do some on Sundays. Read more...

For the last few months, we have been doing some deep pondering on the mystery of the celebration of the Eucharist. Specifically, we have been considering how the Mass is an event at which we have the privilege of being present and in which we have the even greater privilege of participating. At each Mass, the event of Calvary (Jesus offering up His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity to the Father in the Holy Spirit) is made present so that we are essentially standing at the foot of the Cross.

My Brother Knights:  A few more notes from your State Secretary.

On Death Notices:

Please send all to ME, your State Secretary. You need not send to the other State Officers, Editor, Ex Director, Warden or necrology Chairman unless you feel it necessary as I do the same on a regular basis on your behalf. I maintain an ongoing necrology list that will be compared to that of the Chairman, John Williams and then used at the Annual Necrology Mass. Read More...

Home Corporations-based Councils; Safe Environment Program

Brother Knights,

In September’s bulletin, I reviewed Parish-Based Councils vs. Home Corporations-based Councils.  The Supreme Knight requests each council using a home corporation facility to review the relationship between itself and the corporation.  District Deputies are to lead Grand Knights of councils using corporation facilities to conduct this review; complete and return all necessary documentation once each council has made its decision.
