Prospect Landing Page:  If your council does not have a Prospect Landing Page yet, get one at the earliest opportunity.  You can request your Prospect Landing Page from Supreme by going to this link: http://info.kofc.org/pagerequest.html.  The screen shot below is what you will be directed to:

 

 

This prospecting system gives councils the means to implement E-Prospect Cards, which can be used at all Faith in Action program events and at your Church drives.  Please review the Prospecting Page FAQs sheet at the following link: http://kofc-wa.org/FrontPageContent/Membership/Your%20Prospecting%20Page%20FAQ.pdf.   Continue to promote Online Membership as a key component in your recruitment efforts this year. 

 

Please review Membership Action Items for the months of June and put forth extra effort to recruit new members.

As we continue to rejoice in Jesus’s victory over the forces of death, let’s remember that we must live to advance His victory in our world today.

Ask Catholic Men to join the Order and be united with men of like faith who lead, who protect, who serve and who defend.  Our society depends on it.  In the last few weeks, I have seen many brother knights on Conservation lists in danger of being suspended.  We must balance that by actively retaining existing members and bringing in new members – but we must Mentor them to ensure they stay life-long members.

 

We have four weeks left in the fraternal year. Don’t let complacency rule your day.  The devil likes nothing more than when we become complacent.  I challenge you to move out of your comfort zones and invite men to become members of the Knights of Columbus, host Admission Degrees by mid-June 2019 and then mentor them to become life-long members.

I’m all about breaking the kingdom of death – and I presume you are too.  Likewise, let’s help build up the Kingdom of God.  Vivat Jesus!

Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,

Greg
