Knights of Columbus State Council News for April

My Brother’s, HAPPY EASTER!! I hope that everyone is having a great Easter Season! With that in mind, there is a wonderful opportunity here to ask new the men who joined our church on Easter to become Knights also! I hope that you’ll extend that to the new Catechists of your Parish.


  • Has your council paid all of its State Council and Supreme Council assessments?

  • Has your council submitted its entry in the State Council Service Awards?

  • Will your council earn the Star Council Award this year? If not, why?

  • What is your council’s progress toward earning the Star Award, McGivney Award, and Founder’s Award?

  • Columbian Award Activities--- Church, Community, Council, Culture of Life, Family, Youth

One more thing I’d like to leave with you is this short article I saw in the Knightline March issue.

Best Practices for Your Council: Efficient Day-to-Day Operations Ensure Success

Knights of Columbus leaders face many responsibilities. Here are some tips to quickly address the council’s day-to-day operations and the needs of members.

Consider the Needs of Your Parish and Community — What impact will the council’s activities have on the community? How can you draw family members together to aid their community? Look at the answers to these questions in context of your members’ interests.

Take a Broader Perspective— When choosing activities, consider the long-term effect they might have. Are the council’s goals and priorities in line with the Order’s? Do they get young people involved so that they grow in faith and have potential as future Knights?

Look at Your Members’ Interests— Survey council members on the types of service activities their families are interested in and then plan accordingly.

Remember: Each Small Deed Is a Big Step— Don’t let projects or new ideas overwhelm you. Work with your council to make simple plans that can be easily implemented and involve family members of all ages, including Knights’ wives and daughters. These manageable achievements can pave the way for greater success.

Have a great month, I hope to see a Council Service Program Award Entry from EVERY COUNCIL!!!

Let’s get them in before APRIL 15th, 2018!!

Vivat Jesus,

Ed Miller, State Council Chairman
