My Brother Knights,

On page 122 in the book, “Life is Worth Living,” by Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, he talks briefly about his experience at a Eucharistic Congress in Ireland in the section titled, “The Psychology of the Irish.” The short passage is rather funny and full of his wit and genius. It reminded me of a Eucharistic Congress that is about to happen right here in the USA. In Indianapolis, IN, from July 17 to July 21, 2024, to be exact. The Eucharistic Congress is part of the USCCB sponsored Eucharistic Revival, a three-year journey that began June 19, 2022. I am certain all of you are aware of the revival and the importance of this movement to restore understanding and devotion in the great mystery of the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament – the Eucharist – the source and summit of our faith.

My Brother Knights,


In the case of Saints who lived in recent times, there generally still survive letters they wrote, clothes they wore, and other personal effects. We have photographs and even videos of many of them. All these may make us feel as if we can get to know them.


When it comes to the Saints who lived early on in Church history, we might feel as if we are at a disadvantage because we don’t always have many relics, and we may not even have much biographical information about them. Plus, there is a movement among some scholars to discredit some of the Saints’ stories that have been passed on from generation to generation, reducing them to “legends” and causing us to question whether what we believe is true.

State Secretary

My Brother Knights, I hope this message finds you well. As I write this, it is unseasonably cold right now, enough that a sprinkler pipe burst in my parish Church and caused some minor flooding. Our Eastern brethren are used to such temperatures, but on the rainy west side we are not!

As I write this (January 15th), I am deep in the Per Capita and PFH billing process, those invoices should be going out soon. Financial Secretaries, please keep an eye out for the invoices via USPS and respond promptly. As always, please make the checks out to the appropriate entity: Read More...

My Brother Knights,

I challenge all members in Councils within the Washington State Knights of Columbus jurisdiction to identify a member, other than a current officer, director or chairman, who, by his demeanor and actions, motivates others to serve their communities, Parish and Council. Identify the individual’s attributes that enable others he influences to succeed in various endeavors supporting our Faith in Action programs. Read more...

My Brother Knights,

“Tempus Fugit, Memento Mori.”

Time flies!
By the time this bulletin is published, councils should have submitted their Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity which was due 1/31/2024, and should be close to submitting their semi-annual audit, due 2/15/2024.

Our Worthy Director of Finance and Administration, Read More...

My Brother Knights,

Happy new year! My particular greeting this month refers to the Lunar New Year that falls on February 10 this year. 2024 is the year of the Dragon. If your age is divisible by 12 this year, you were born in a year of the Dragon – this is your year! In many southeast Asian countries, like Viet Nam, China, and others, it marks the coming of spring. Yes, spring!

The cold of winter is almost over, my brothers! Read more...

My Brother Knights,

The Christmas lights are still on in Leavenworth and will continue to be until at least the middle of February. The theme changes every year and I love living here.

You are all doing a great job in membership recruitment under WSD Greg and Membership Director Mike Rutland’s leadership. We are ahead of last year in recruitment and that is fantastic news for our state. Read more...
