September 2020


Brother Knights,


It certainly has been a while. I have to confess that I’ve been remiss in writing to you all for a couple of months. When you are reading this, we will have been in month 6 of the pandemic when many of us started spending a lot of quality time with our families at home. Do I have to remind you to speak to your fellow Brother Knight and field agent now? I say that in jest, of course, and your family may be getting along just fine.  However, it is always a good idea to keep in touch with your field agent.


As I look back on these past 6 months, it is keeping a sense of humor and really understanding that we ultimately have no control. It is all up to God’s plan and we just need to trust and follow. Hopefully, your last six months have not been completely idle. Councils that are holding meetings online and keeping tabs on fellow Knights are doing good things, and we should do these things. I encourage you to also remember the Supreme Council’s campaign at the start of this pandemic, called “Leave No Neighbor Behind”. Your council can still reach out to the most vulnerable in our community. These are the folks that you may hardly see or hear from during normal times, but they may also be the ones most impacted by the pandemic, job losses, and mental stabilities. As Knights, we need to go above and beyond to reach out wherever we can. It will be tough, but if it was easy, everyone would be a Knight.



Work with your pastor and see how you can conduct a food drive. Procedures may need to adjust, but the need and the generosities we have are still the same. Many parishes have seen donations decline since many of us have been away from the church physically. Encourage your fellow parishioners to donate electronically if your parish supports that; have them mail a check to the parish office. Perhaps your council can make a donation to the parish general fund to keep the doors open.  We need to show the rest of the world that our faith and our service to one another are “essential”. We must not lose our way. Have faith in God and trust him.



Vivat Jesus!
