November 2019

We are all setting priorities for the holidays during the next few months as our calendars fill up. My personal priorities include spending time with my family and friends as we:

· Distribute coats to children through the Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids program.

· Celebrate Thanksgiving and the many blessings my family has received including our opportunity to provide for those who are less fortunate 28 November.

· Prepare for the winter Washington State Council meeting with State Officers, District Deputies, State Directors and State Chairmen 6-8 December.

· Recognize Mary’s appearance to Juan Diego on the North American Continent during the celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe 12 December.

· Remember Jesus’ humble beginnings with the reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging during the Posada Novena, 16 – 24 December concluding with the ultimate Christmas party.

· Celebrate the birth of Jesus 25 December.

· Venerate Mary, the Mother of God, 1 January and throughout the year.

· Recognize the Baptism of Jesus 12 January, and

· Demonstrate our commitment as Knights of Columbus to the sanctity of life by participating in the March for Life 17 January either in Washington DC or Olympia.

I encourage all Knights of Columbus to support our full schedule of programs during these next three months. Please invite your families to participate and include them in your Knights of Columbus activities.

Council’s should consider hosting the “Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians” Icons and the Silver Rose during the remaining half of the fraternal year in 2020. Councils on the east side of the Cascades should contact Federico Lopez if they would like to host the “Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians” Icon. Please contact Scott Hulse if your Council on the west side of the Cascades would like to host the Icon. Contact information for both Federico and Scott is included below.

The 2020 schedule for the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose, which is the precursor to the Celebration of Mary appearing to Juan Diego in the Americas 12 December and a symbol of our devotion as Knights to Mary, is still being prepared and will be provided to all Councils as soon as it is available from the Supreme Council. The 2020 Pilgrimage will proceed from the Canadian border southward along the I-5 Corridor to Vancouver and then into the Yakima Valley. The exact locations for transfer of the Silver Rose from the British Columbia/Yukon State (Provincial) Council has not yet been determined nor has a decision been made as to whether the Washington State Council will transfer custody of the Silver Rose to the Idaho or Oregon State Councils. Locations and schedules for receipt and transfer will be available soon after we receive the final schedule for the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose from the Supreme Council. All Knights are invited and encouraged to participate in the receipt and transfer events.

Councils should contact Scott Hulse at (360) 243-0745 or by email at if they wish to host either the “Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Icon” or the Silver Rose. Contact Federico Lopez at (509) 945-7222 or by email at Should there be any other questions about programs or ordering materials, please contact Scott Hulse.

Vivat Jesus!
