My Brothers,

I hope your Lent is going well and you are preparing yourself for Easter. I know many Councils are hosting a fish fry or soup night for their parish, and I thank you for your contribution to support our communities in their preparations. Be sure not to neglect yourself and your own spiritual preparations during this busy time!

Convention time is getting closer and closer, and I hope your Councils are taking care of their business. I just saw the resolutions have been mailed out, and Council delegates are due to the State Secretary. The Convention is our celebration of everything that we have accomplished over the past year, and a chance to reconnect with our brothers from around the state.  I am excited to renew friendships and to learn of all the good work that has been done in God’s name. I hope to see you in Bellevue in May at the Hilton!

State award applications are due either April 1st or April 15th (see the General Programs article in the February bulletin or the document on the state website for all the details). I encourage every Council to submit award applications, and to remember that is not bragging about ourselves but sharing successes and providing ideas to other Councils. Award applications should be sent directly to the appropriate chairmen.

Keep those MSR reports coming in, I am busy tracking them toward the State Deputy 1000 point club. Remember that there is no penalty for late submissions and the State Deputy has authorized a 100 point bonus for Councils that submit all ten monthly MSRs. As we get closer to the deadline for submissions (May 10th) I will do my best to reach out to Councils that have submitted at least eight MSRs to let you know you have a missing report.

Finally, take some time to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been having (at least on the west side) and take a moment to thank our Lord for the beautiful world he has given us. Everyone is busy but try to take a moment to pause and just express gratitude for something simple.

Vivat Jesus!
