Brother Knights,

I trust you are watching the Knights of Columbus video series inspired by Bishop Olmsted’s Exhortation, Into the Breach.  All 12 episodes premiered on Ash Wednesday at kofc.org/intothebreach.  The videos are amazing and being circulated widely.  The Seattle Catholic Men’s Conference was going to open this year by showing the Knights of Columbus trailer video.  The conference has been postponed due to the Coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak.

Please continue to pray to Our Lady for her intercession to help us develop a vaccine to thwart COVID19.  May Our Lady protect us and help us get through these challenging times.   May God grant us courage and strength to live the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity even in the face of this pandemic and to be disciples of Christ to those who may need help:  assisting a pastor at Adoration times, calling and talking with an elderly brother knight who may not want to leave his home or delivering groceries to an elderly parishioner at home.

Continue to practice prudent measures to help prevent the spread of COVID19 for the common good.  At the same time, do not go into seclusion or isolation – that too is unhealthy.  The community needs people who are not afraid to face challenges and who are able and willing to step into the breach and defeat the forces of fear and anxiety.  We were created for this time and we must act for this time.

I announced last month that the Exemplification Fund is being discontinued due to overwhelming acceptance of the new Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.  All councils having membership gains recorded in February and all councils with existing Exemplification Fund debt as of the end of February 2020, are requested to remit final payment to the State Secretary to close out accounts.  46 councils have outstanding balances, and I ask that you remit your final payments soonest.  I will communicate with those councils directly.


Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally, 

 

Gregory S. Mahoney

State Treasurer
