October 2021

My Brother Knights,

In the 2021-2022 term, the United States Supreme Court is expected to take up a case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, that poses a direct challenge to the evil abortion regime in this country.  The two major cases that confected and then entrenched the abortion industry are Roe v. Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992).  These court decisions fabricated a constitutional right for elective abortions.  This hubris was and still is an egregious abuse of authority, creating a right to kill on a massive scale, more horrifying than the Nazi Holocaust perpetrated in World War II.  The Supreme Court has an opportunity to reverse the lawless decisions in 1973 and 1992 and begin the course to stop the slaughter of innocent life.  With our families and our councils, let us pray fervently in October, Respect Life Month, and in the months to follow for the only defensible outcome: the reversal of Roe and Casey.

As we continue to conduct Regional meetings this month, I encourage councils to be present at any of the remaining meetings.  Initial council feedback from the meetings in September has been positive, so take part in this opportunity for fellowship to help chart the course for a successful fraternal year. 

Liability Insurance billings were mailed to Financial Secretaries in early August.  As of September 19, 2021, I have received payment from 61.44% of councils – thank you!  Councils still outstanding should return payment promptly to my address noted below. Write checks out to Washington State Council and not to me.  The liability insurance bill is a big one and we need your cooperation in promptly sending in payments.

On other State Council billings, thank you for sending in your State Per Capita payments from the January 2021 invoice.  We have received 98.56% of State Per Capita payments.  Those councils choosing to participate in the Pennies for Heaven Fund from the January 2021 invoice, we have received an 83.67% participation rate and have collected $47,253.06, in support of vocations.  Your generosity plus the returns from our Pennies for Heaven Fund investments with Asset Advisors will allow us to write the following grants this year: $37,500 to each Diocese in Washington State; $5,000 additional to the Yakima Diocese; $22,500 to the Bishop White Seminary Cor Christi initiative; and $10,000 to the Holy Theophany Monastery in Olympia.

As a reminder, all council checks should be remitted to the correct state council entity.  Funds for the Pennies for Heaven Fund should be remitted to Pennies for Heaven Fund.  Likewise, do the same for Columbus Charities and Washington State Council. 

Remember to send all checks for deposit to me at the following address.

Be Joy-filled!

“The first and most fundamental of all human rights is the right to life, and when this right is denied all other rights are threatened … A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members; and among the most vulnerable are surely the unborn and the dying.”

St. Pope John Paul II

 

 

Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,
