Happy New Year Brothers,

Valerie and I had a great Christmas this year and we hope yours was good as well. One of the best things that happened to us this season was the fun of being with all of the District Deputies for the Mid Winter Meeting in Bellevue- what a fantastic place it is around Christmas time.  The men got to share a lot of good ideas for the rest of the year and the ladies got to enjoy shopping at that "Monster Mall" in Bellevue.

Happy New Year! Blessings of peace and joy to you and your families as we begin our journey through the Year of Our Lord 2018!

Fr. Lou Renner (1926-2015) was a Jesuit priest who served for more than forty years in Alaska before relocating to the Jesuit residence at Gonzaga University in 2002. As a young priest living in Spokane, I used to drop in to see Fr. Renner for confession. He was somewhat hard of hearing (which was not why I chose him for my confessor!), but he was always attentive, and he always had a word of encouragement to offer. Read more...

Brothers all,

Ready for the New Year? Made any mistakes so far in 2018? I thought I made a mistake but was mistaken (I know, that is an old one).

I will be attending the Mass for Life in Olympia January 22nd for the 8th straight year (only been in Washington for 9 years) and will be my 4th as cantor. I cannot get enough of Archbishop Sartain’s homilies. It will be an official pilgrimage since I moved to Leavenworth, WA. Stop by after the service and say hello. Read more...

Brother Knights,

I hope you had a nice Christmas and New Year Holiday.  As we begin the new calendar year, one of your new year resolutions should be to ensure your Council is on track for Star Council.  It is important to keep in mind that your Council must comply with the Supreme Council’s Safe Environment Program training requirements to qualify for Star Council this fraternal year and into the future.

My Dear Brother Knights,

Happy New Year to you and your families! I hope that you had a relaxing and joyful holiday season, and start the second half of the Columbia year with renewed energy. There is always work to be done in bringing about God’s Kingdom here on earth, so don’t lose your focus. 

Are you prepared for the upcoming State Convention in May? Resolutions should be considered, delegates identified and schedules should be planned. Don’t miss this fun event with your brothers from all over the state! Read more...

Brothers All,
Hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving with your friends and family!  We were blessed with good food, good company and the noisy chatter of little ones!
Warm Christmas greetings from our house to yours!  May the reason for the season reach more hearts this year and spur even greater charitable giving and acts of kindness.
I am STILL looking for those Holy Family Icons that traveled the state these past couple of years.  Please get in touch with me if you have one or know of where one is.  There were three of them.  Please let me know where they are so I can coordinate picking them up. Read more...
