My Brother Knights,

Each year your State Deputy is required to give a “State of the State” address for all members to hear. This in general describes the condition of the Jurisdiction and hopes for the future. In today’s message, as I write this on Easter Sunday, I am reminded of the renewal of the church and our Order at the same time. Our Holy Father has even spoken on “everyday grace” as a key to surviving the troubles of the day.

As we look forward from this Pandemic and the terrible effects that came with it, we can see more than just the unpleasant issues. There were multiple “Food for Families” events that were held with tremendous results, feeding those that suddenly found themselves out of a job or moving back to their relatives homes as they had none of their own thanks to the troubles of the times.

Several Ultrasound machines were placed in multiple locations, saving the lives of the unborn, at a time when money for even the most basic services was hard to find. Still, members and Councils stepped up to make these happen. Supreme continued to support our efforts and funding for each to make these efforts more successful. Yes, there are always reasons anyone can point at to quit, but there are just as many reasons and more to go forward, if we just look hard enough. Read more...

Dear Brother Knights,

Happy Easter! I pray that this grace-filled season has brought new hope and joy into your homes, and that you continue to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection with grateful hearts.

One thing I really enjoy about the Easter season is the inclusion of so many passages from the Acts of the Apostles in the daily Mass readings. We hear account after account of the Apostles and other early disciples going about and proclaiming the good news (i.e., the Gospel) with boldness and great zeal. Read more...

God help us as we enter into another Virtual Convention. This Convention will be for delegates, PSDs, State Officers, District Deputies, four Directorships, Fr. Kenny, Ken DeVos and Dang Nguyen (technical equipment) only. Unfortunately, that will be it. Those that are included above, please visit our KofC WA website for further updates as we get closer to the Convention.

We still have 13 councils that have not paid their Per Capita. This is mandatory!!! 

Not to be threatening, but when a council does not pay their Per Capita, Read More...

Brother Knights,

Happy Easter to you and your families. 

This month, we embark on another Virtual State Convention.  The virtual platforms will be different this year – more capability.  Again, please be patient as we navigate through the process.  Pay attention to the instructions you receive from State Secretary Kim Washburn.  Procedures for the virtual convention will not mirror exactly all procedures outlined in the WSC Bylaws, which are designed more for in-person conventions.

My Brother Knights,

The 118th WSC Annual Convention will be held on Saturday, May 15th, starting at 2PM. We will be using two different software platforms provided by Supreme, and details will be forthcoming as we learn more. It will be a compressed time format, same as last year, but we should have the ability to share video and there is a new way to vote as we elect a new State Warden and delegates to the Supreme Convention.

There is a new page on the WSC website for the 118th Convention where we are adding Read More...

The end of the 2020-2021 fraternal year is near. The Silver Rose arrived in Washington State 16 April 2021, earlier than expected, because the Silver Rose was sent to the Washington State Council directly from Alaska by the Alaska State Council. Early receipt of the Silver Rose enabled expansion of the Washington State Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose to include the Spokane area beginning with Nine Mile Falls Our Lady of the Lake Council 16184. There are still some openings for Councils not originally included along the planned route during 2021 that would like to host the Silver Rose. Read more...

Hi Brothers,

When I pray, I sure don’t have any problem doing so to God the Father. I envision him as a powerful, discipline-seeking man, but a loving man, much like my earthly father.

I also find it easy to pray to Jesus. I see him as a mild, caring brother that simply loves me and will do anything for me.

Then there is this huge “drop-off” for me trying to pray to the Holy Spirit. The normal symbol of the Holy Spirit is the Dove surrounded by Flames. Read more...
