Patrick Kelley, State Deputy 2019 - 2020
"Unapologetically Catholic”

State Deputy Pat Kelley was in Orlando for the Winter State Deputy Meetings when the December bulletin articles were due, but he wanted to emphasize the importance of getting your Safe Environment training completed and ensuring your Council is compliant.

Supreme does not allow any wiggle room for Councils on their Safe Environment training – if you do not comply the chairmen are removed and the Council is not eligible to host any programs aimed primarily at youth. State Advocate Tom Williams and State Forms & Administration Chairman Kevin Fraley are monitoring Council status regularly and will reach out for any issues.

There is a lot of information available to you on the Supreme website http://kofc.org/en/members/programs/youth-activities/safe-environment-program.html, please check there first for your questions. If you are unable to get an answer to your question, you may call the Youth Protection Member Hotline (203-800-4940) or reach out to the State Advocate for assistance. Read more...

I never got into watching the popular television series Downton Abbey, but I recently found myself with a free afternoon, and I decided to go to the theater to watch the movie by the same name. I don’t necessarily recommend watching the movie, but there was something about the film that made me think of the season of Advent and our preparation for the coming of Christ into our hearts.

Brothers,

Hope this finds you enjoying the Advent season.

14 Councils have not paid their annual liability insurance premium payment. Next month I will post those councils that have not paid, so pony up. After that, you’re on your own if you have a claim.

Per Capita billing will go out right after the first of the year, Read More...

Brother Knights,

I hope and pray you all have a Blessed and Merry Christmas.  Let us together shine our light and spread the joy of the Gospel during this joyous Christmas season and throughout the New Year.  Numbers are probably the last thing you want to look at, but please review the Exemplification Fund status chart included in this bulletin.

Brother Knights,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday and were able to relax. For those with families, I hope you had some time to spend with loved ones and give thanks for all the blessings we have in our lives.

We will continue to talk about the Safe Environment Program (SEP) requirements again this month, there seems to be a lot of confusion. Read More...

Perception is reality for many people. Our Catholic faith is under attack by secularists, who take advantage of our reluctance, as people of faith, to make our works visible. These secularists focus on our imperfections rather than the good that we do.  Why do we have this reluctance? Jesus taught us “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel,  Read more...

Brothers,

I think of all of the gifts that we so frantically search for and buy every year at this time for the ones we love. Unfortunately, many of these gifts will miss the mark and end up being re-gifted or used as white elephants. To actually get that perfect gift for someone is really rare, but when you do, you can see the Joy in their eyes. I'm sure that most of you know what I mean. Read more...
