My Brother Knights,

I am honored to serve you as Membership Director. I thank the Worthy State Deputy Kim Washburn and the all the state officers for their vote of confidence. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. So let’s get ready and roll up our sleeves.

As we come to, what hopefully is the end of the pandemic and Washington starts to open up, we look toward regaining normality back into our lives. This past year has been hard on all of us. But, through it all you my brothers still brought new members into our ranks. Your efforts have kept the vision of Blessed Michael J. McGivney growing.

We now have a unique opportunity to have a huge impact in the lives of our parish members. The Covid Recovery Program recently instituted by Supreme focuses on resuming operations in a way that inspires members and parishioners to become reinvolved with Church and community activities. The door is opening. Will you rise to the occasion? Will you be the example that other men will look toward? Will you reach out your hand and ask him to join us?

Our goal this year is very simple – Every Council Active. This is achieved by looking at the first three principles of the order.

CHARITY - increase your council’s manpower to assist parish and community members by providing for those in need

UNITY - provide the opportunity for eligible Catholic men to work together and accomplish great deeds that they could not accomplish alone

FRATERNITY - provide every man the opportunity to build the bonds of friendship with council members that will last a lifetime

To assist us in our efforts to recruit new members, Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly announced at the recent State Deputies meeting in New Haven, the promotion for free membership will be extended through December 31, 2021. I’m not sure what the Promo Code will be but as soon as I know, I’ll pass it along to all the District Deputies.

Due to the schedule of publishing the bulletin, the membership statistics are not yet complete for the fraternal year. I will hold off on the award announcements until the August bulletin. Please check the membership graphic for the latest membership information at the time this article was written. The Division leaders are in Green.

Again, I am grateful and honored to serve you. Stay strong and be vigilant my Brothers and keep up the work of building God’s Kingdom here on earth.

Vivat Jesus!
