My Brother Knights,

As we start a new fraternal year we should be invigorated by the success of last year. Together we created many Holy Moments in collaboration with God. This year, our mission remains the same and we should strive for ever more success. Our call is to be disciples of Jesus Christ. As Knights of the Eucharist, we are to be witnesses to the truth every day and to everyone we meet. Evangelization must be in the hearts and minds of all members, and it should resonate even more so with those of us who live in a supercharged secular culture – a secular culture that desperately and mistakenly grasps for meaning in life through much that is meaningless. The sad reality of a secular culture that becomes more disconnected from God is that life becomes more meaningless.

My Brother Knights,


The feast of St. Thomas the Apostle (July 3) affords us the opportunity to reflect on a difficult dynamic in the spiritual life that touches most, if not all, of us at some point. There are many who struggle with it on a daily basis. I am referring to the tendency to define ourselves or others according to past failures.


How do people commonly refer to St. Thomas? “Doubting Thomas.” Not “St. Thomas, one of the twelve Apostles;” not “St. Thomas, who traveled to the ends of the earth preaching the Gospel, establishing Churches, and winning souls for Christ;” not “St. Thomas, who shed his blood as a holy martyr;” but “Doubting Thomas!” Read more...

As I write this article, we have just wrapped up the Summer Leadership meeting in Spokane. What a great event, lots of good material for the District Deputies to take back to their Councils to help them get off to a fast start this fraternal year. I am grateful for everyone who was able to attend, it is a big commitment to spend a whole weekend with the associated travel. I strongly encourage each Council Read More...

My Brother Knights,

Welcome to the new fraternal year. It is important that we get off to a good start. Brother Kevin Fraley has sent very helpful messages about making sure we close out last fraternal years activities correctly. That includes that reports of a new officers elected and program personnel are correctly entered into member management. He has also sent out reminders about the Safe Environment Program. Please make sure that you have attended to those. Read More...

My Brother Knights,

This time last year, I was writing to you while preparing for the summer leadership meeting with District Deputies and Financial Secretaries. Well, this year, due to the scheduling conflict with Gonzaga, we have wrapped up that meeting already. Now, July and August are open. Hmmm…what am I going to do with all this summertime left?

If we just do the same as last fraternal year, we will exceed our all time high of 17484 net/net members in our 121 year history. Read more...
