Brothers,

If we haven’t met before, my name is Abundeo Reponte or just Al State Council Community Director for Fraternal year 2021-22. I’m a member of council 13238 (Tacoma). I just spend the last few weeks getting acquainted with all programs that fall under this position.

Men didn’t join the knights to gain titles or in name only. Men joined the knights to be good men of the church and better fathers, sons and to remain active in our community. We do this by standing in solidarity with your parish priest and performing good works of charity with in our community. Sometimes our charity work extends beyond our parish boundaries into the community such as food prep and serving in soup kitchens, community food banks or other project helping the least of our brothers.

The COVID pandemic has had a divesting effect on the local economy (Jobs), housing, church/parishes attendance and councils. I see this as an opportunity to jump start council who have not started or completed a community-based program over this fraternal year.

“The Leave No Neighbor Behind” and the “Helping Hand” program is a good way to start. When I was in the military, we had to form teams under a team leader and squad leader. In the knights we can do something similar, such as created small groups contact (call tree) to sure that some health and welfare of our brothers are being met during the lock down. See program overview sheet on the website.

Youth Programs are also under the Community.

Soccer Challenge, Free Throw competition and Catholic Essay contest are under the Community. GKs, FS or DD order your kits “now.” All kits are free, you just need to appoint a chairman in your council (safe environment completed) to run this or these programs.

If you have any questions regarding any community programs, please visit the Knight of Columbus Supreme resources page and State website, I’m also available to answer any questions or to help with your community program. Please note I may not be able to take your call during regular work hour Monday through Friday (8am-4pm).

Thank you for your time and God Bless.
Al,

Abundeo Reponte
