Worthy Brothers,

The past month has been a very busy and very fun month for your State Deputy. I have pictures!

I gave Bishop Eusebio Elizondo the Pennies for Heaven check of $34,000 for the Seattle Archdiocese on behalf of  the Shoreline Council 11217 Knights. I did it at their  25-year Anniversary Party. It was a great night and a great way to honor the Knights in that Council. (Picture 1).

My next mission was to present Bishop Daly with a Pennies for Heaven check- $34,000 at the Spokane Chancery. What an honor that was. Bishop Daly is such a busy man, but he took a few minutes to visit with me. I left truly inspired. (Picture 2). 

The Supreme Knight challenged all State Deputies to participate in the "'Coats for Kids Program" this year and to send him pictures. Being an over-achiever , I participated in two events. The first one was at Bemiss Elementary where the need was great (Picture 3). I also participated in the Tri-Cities Catholic Charities event and was able to help there too. (Picture 4). Read more...

Happy New Year 2019! May the Lord continue to bless you and your families in great abundance all throughout the year. May He deepen your faith, strengthen your hope, and purify your charity. Let’s be “all in” for the Lord in the next twelve months.

One common tradition with the coming of a new year is to make resolutions. Sadly, the abandonment of resolutions has become so much the norm that it doesn’t seem like people actually have any expectation that a new year’s resolution will ever “stick.” Don’t we find ourselves scoffing at the idea that we would actually lose 20 pounds in the new year? Or stop swearing? Or start going to confession more regularly? Read more...

My Brothers,

The Christmas season is upon us and gives me pause to reflect upon this last year. Each of you have been a blessing to me in one way or another and I truly appreciate that. You have all made my job easier than I ever expected and I thank you for that.

As I am reminded that, while accounting is an exact science and I am required to constantly bring up even seemingly small mistakes, I only do so that our records remain as accurate and transparent as possible. 

I realize that I may not always seem as patient as I might be and for that I can only ask for your prayers and forgiveness. Read More...

Brother Knights,

Happy New Year!!!! How quickly 2018 passed by. May we look back through 2018 and remember those that have passed. May the Lord rush them safely to Heaven for eternity. Lord, bless the family and friends that are left behind to fill the loved ones’ void. Strength and love to all.

Our Exemplification graph attached (current as of December 15) shows we are falling way behind in council payments. We were doing so well, but now we need your help in getting payments caught up.

As stated before, the best way to keep me off your back is for every new member exemplified to your council, send $7 to WSC at the same time you send the form 100 to Supreme—then it is done. Read more...

Brother Knights,

I want to wish you and your families a Happy New Year.  As we begin a new calendar year, let’s work off some of those extra calories by a few pushups and a run around the IRS Form 990 race track!

Form 990 Tax Filing:  Councils must do three things to comply with IRS filing requirements:

1) obtain an EIN from the IRS (new councils this year);

2) register its EIN with the Home Office Legal Department (new councils this year); and,

3) file an annual return with the IRS (all councils must do this). Read More...

My Brothers,

As I write this article my family is getting ready for Christmas and spending time with our loved ones. By the time you read this article, it will be 2019 and we will be halfway through our fraternal year. Your state officers are hard at work planning for the upcoming State Convention in Bellevue and your Councils should also be working on that goal.

I hope that each Council is starting to work on their award applications for the state awards, and determining whom should attend the State Convention. This is a celebration of all that we as Knights do over the year, and I would strongly encourage each Council Read more...
