My Brother Knights, 

 It’s hard to believe we are halfway through our fraternal year. Thanksgiving has passed and now we enter into the Christmas season. We Catholics refer to it as Advent and is the four week preparation for the birth of Jesus. It is a time to remember Jesus’ first coming. It’s a time to reflect and prepare. As we do, why not reflect on why you became a Knight? Who recruited you? Reflect on your memories of brothers you have met and the relationships you have forged. I bet there is a smile on your face. Then why not offer that experience to another. In this Advent season give offer the gift of membership to another. Remember, the Knights of Columbus saves lives and change lives. Through our into the Breach video series, we help men become better husbands, better fathers, better leaders in their families, parish and communities.

 Just as Father McGivney asked men to assist him in establishing his mission, so too members of you council continue that mission and ask every eligible Catholic man in your parish and community to join your council. So how do you do that? Here are 5 keys.

 Talk about your positive experiences as a member of the Knights of Columbus. Convey a sense of enthusiasm, excitement and pride when talking about the great things your council accomplishes and the people who are being helped. Offer some personal stories of how volunteering has helped you grow in your faith and what being a Knight means to you.

 Maintain a positive attitude, smile often, avoid being negative and most important, reach out your hand and always look the prospective member in the eye when talking to him.

 Talk to the perspective member and his wife about the opportunity for spiritual growth and fraternal benefits offered to them and their family. Benefits such as scholarships, the insurance program, and others are open to the member’s entire family.

 Be visible! Wear your badges, council vests or any other symbol that shows you are a member of the Knights at all functions and even while attending Mass.

 Assume that a prospective member is interested in becoming part of the Knights and ask him to join. This goes back to #2 of maintaining positive attitude. Look around ask family, friends, co-workers, and fellow parishioners all present recruitment opportunities.

 The Order has made it easier to help you. The online join process has been streamlined and now is just one page. Simply go to Supremes’ website and click on “Join Us” and you will be brought to the Online Join form.

 Please don’t forget about FREE online membership, use either “BLESSEDMCGIVNEY” or if working with your field agent ask for his unique PRMO CODE.  Always remember if you have any questions regarding Online Membership or Recruiting please feel free to give me a call. I’m here to help you be successful.
