My brothers,

We are off to a very slow start this new fraternal year - - as of the time this article is written, we have recruited only 7 new members and lost 2. A gain of five men in the first three weeks of the month is pretty bad, we need to do better.

I know that times are tough, and much of Washington state has restrictions on gatherings in person. These are challenging times for us, no doubt, but there are still ways to grow our membership. Did you know that men can join online and take their Exemplification online? My Council had a member’s son join online the day after we voted on him, and he took his online Exemplification the very same day, on demand!

The process is still the same, the Council must vote on the member but once that happens the man can join online and then take his Exemplification On Demand. Please see the links below:

On Demand Exemplification

At the time of this article being written, Supreme is running a free first year of membership dues for men who join the Knights. I sent that information to your District Deputy and they were to send it to each of their Councils. What a great incentive for new members!

Another great idea is leveraging the “Into The Breach” video series for a men’s group or small group study. This is some of the most compelling content the Supreme has produced, and it is a huge boon to us. What man is not moved by watching such profound content and he can’t help but see that the benefits of membership in the Knights of Columbus.

My brothers, we are in tough times, no doubt about that. But tough times show the real character of men. What are these tough times revealing about our character? Are we content to sit back and blame the circumstances for our woes, or are we going to figure out how to succeed no matter what? You know where I stand and I what I believe in . . .  My faith is in God above and the strong men of the Knights! Keep fighting brothers, and make your Order proud of you and your efforts.

Vivat Jesus!
