My Dear Brothers,

It is my duty to inform you that Brother Larry Devlin has resigned his position as State Warden effective immediately. We are grateful for the time we got to work with Larry and wish him the very best in his future endeavors, especially in the vital work of KC Help. We ask for your patience in this time of transition.

I am happy to announce the State Officers have appointed Dr. David Olwell to fulfill the remaining term of State Warden until an election for the new State Warden can be held at the next Convention. David has an extraordinary resume with the Knights of Columbus and he brings to the table an incredible amount of experience.

Past position in the State of California - PGK, PFN, FDD x2, State Fraternal Activities Chair, Conferring Officer.

Present in Washington - Charter member 16361, faculty advisor, membership director (quadruple star award this year), DD37, and college council coordinator.

The State of Washington will be well served.

Dear Brother Knights,

Merry Christmas and blessed new year!

St. Matthew reports in his gospel that, when the magi had completed their visit to the Christ Child in Bethlehem, they “departed for their country by another way” (2:12).

A strictly literal interpretation would simply point out that the magi only took a different route home because they had been warned in a dream not to return to King Herod (ibid.), since Herod intended to learn Jesus’ location in order to take His life.

However, looking at the text through a spiritual lens, we note that the magi’s departure on a different route Read more...

My Brother Knights,

Happy New Year 2022!   Goodbye 2021!  As we begin the second half of the fraternal year, I can’t help but recall that the first half was a good year in many respects – less restrictions and councils more active, in-person meetings resumed, record highs in membership growth, record number of coats distributed state-wide, and state council grants for seminarian and vocations support continued.  These are just a few accomplishments.  I know there is a lot more charity being done by councils, and I thank you for your efforts.  I wish I could list all of it here.

The Winter District Deputy Meeting is now behind us.  Thank you to all District Deputies and Chairmen Read More...

My Dear Brothers,

Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope that you have had a relaxing and fulfilling Christmas season. The last few years have been hard on all of us and I think we should take our Blessings when we can!

Although this is a new start of the calendar year, it is the halfway mark of the fraternal year. We still have a lot of time left to accomplish our goals!

I wanted to share a video with you that I think has meaning for us today. It is what is called a flash mob, where people gather with no warning to put on a performance in public. This video was taken in the Spanish town of Sabadell Read more...

My Brother Knights,

One January is the time when some of us resolve to do things better in our lives. For me, getting my State Council Bulletin reports in on time is one. A resolution that I think all of us should focus on is providing a safe and secure environment for our families, our friends and those with whom we have not yet become acquainted. The Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program (SEP) is just one of the many things that we can do to assure that all those participating in our Knights of Columbus, Parish, Community and other events can safely enjoy activities.

Grand Knights and Council Program Chairmen, please make sure you are all in compliance Read More...
