Hello Brothers,

April has come and the State Officer team has finished its eleven visits around the State. I wish to extend a great big THANK YOU to Larry Shaw and the District Deputies, to make these meetings happen. The host District Deputies did a fantastic job and I really appreciate all of you who came to spend some time with us. I received a lot of positive feedback and I was thankful for that. If you want the State Officer Team to come visit your Council next year, just let me know and I will try to set that up with your District Deputy. You can do that by dropping me an e-mail at: State  We will likely be able to see twelve more Councils next year and please let me know if Sunday is OK for your meeting. Read more...

Happy Easter! Christ is risen! Alleluia!

Holy Week, the Paschal Triduum and the Octave of Easter can be something of an emotional roller coaster, at least for me. The beautiful, impactful liturgies of these two weeks bring me from the exhilaration of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to the stark reality of His Passion, from a deep sense of gratitude for the Eucharist and the priesthood to a sobering acknowledgement of my responsibility for Jesus’ pain, from the heaviness of the night to the warmth and joy of standing in a church bathed in the glow of candlelight.

Brother Knights,

I hope you all will have a blessed Easter Season continuing until Pentecost.

I had the pleasure of sponsoring a convert who joined the Catholic Church March 31st. He was baptized in the Lutheran Church at age one by his grandparents and is now 30 years old. He has had little instruction into the religious faith, but the Holy Spirit has brought him full circle. It was such a blessing to see his grandparents’ dream come to fruition, even though it was in the Catholic Church. Read more...

Safe Environment Training Status

Brother Knights,

Happy Easter to you and your families.  May the joy of the risen Christ celebrated this Easter season strengthen you on your faith journey.  As we launch into spring, enjoy time with your families and make good use of those spring breaks.

To follow up on an important subject for all fraternal leaders, the following Councils risk losing their eligibility for Star Council this year due to noncompliance with the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment training requirements. Read More...

My Brothers,

I hope you had a Blessed Easter and were able to take some time for yourself and ponder the mysteries of Christ’s death and resurrection.

The 115th State Convention will be held in Pasco this from May 18 – 20 and you don’t want to miss out. This is our celebration of all the hard work we do over the past year and each Council should have someone in attendance. Read more...

My Brothers All,

April showers ......... bring May Knights!  Think about it, planting those seeds now help you see fruit later.  Spring rains can bring new growth in your yard and garden.  Just like your garden, new growth in your Council can bring great benefit later on.  So spring into action this month and see how your efforts pay off!  Plant seeds of membership and water those seeds each chance you can.  Invite parishioners to your events.  Ask that young man to help in the kitchen.
