As of April 1, 2024, there will be five weeks, six days, and twelve hours before the strike of the gavel opens the 121st Annual Meeting of the Washington State Council (aka Convention). By the time you read this, the countdown will have changed, and you will have to do the math again on your own. Read more...

My Brother Knights,


Toward the end of the month, on April 25, we will celebrate the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist. Rather than present a biography of the Saint, which would be quite limited anyway, I would like to focus on the fact that he composed an account of the saving news of Jesus Christ, that is to say, the gospel.


In order to be able to produce such a work, St. Mark had to be able to tell the story. He may very well have had other resources available to him (e.g., other people’s writings, stories he heard other people tell about Jesus, etc.), Read more...

My Brother Knights, Happy Easter – He has Risen! I hope you were able to enjoy the Easter holiday with family and friends, and that you had a productive Lent.

The WSC is in full Convention planning mode right now, and all the officers are quite busy. Please see below for some reminders from me.

Thank you to those Councils who have returned their Per Capita invoices, we are at almost 80% return now. If you have not yet sent your check in, please do so soon so that your Council is eligible to send Delegates to the Convention. As always, please make the checks out to the appropriate entity: Read More...

My Brother Knights,

The Washington State Council of the Knights of Columbus 2023 – 2024 fraternal year is rapidly coming to an end. We are all thankful for the accomplishments achieved during the current year. Now, we need to be looking forward and plan for the upcoming fraternal year. We will be electing officers and appointing directors and program chairmen who will lead our Councils at all levels and provide programmatic guidance that is essential if we are to increase our commitment toward working together as brothers to provide for all those who are in need, spiritually and fraternally, as well as materially.

My Brother Knights,

Christ is Risen! He is Risen, indeed!

My Worthy Brother Knights, I hope that you had a meaningful Lent and a Joyous Easter!

Preparations for the annual meeting of the state council (“Convention”) are well underway. We have ten resolutions in hand that will be sent out to the delegates by 15 April. Six are perennials (honoring the Pope, Bishop, Supreme Knight, 50-year members, etc.) and four are new topics. Read More...

My Brother Knights,

Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

This Lent, I had the opportunity to spend some time in prayer with Blessed Michael McGivney. Thanks to the efforts of a few faith-filled folks and Worthy Grand Knight Bill Webb of Obadiah Council 7642, Kirkland, a First Class relic of Blessed McGivney found its way to western Washington. Everyone may have heard the call to prayer issued by Worthy State Deputy Greg Mahoney in March. On the eve of Holy Thursday, Read more...

My Brother Knights,

I’m not sure this will be reported by the State Deputy or Membership Director, but our State just crossed the 17,000 membership strong mark since 2017. Here are the three highest years.

2015-17,484
2016-17,497
2017-17,465
2024-17,023…So far.

We need to exceed the highest number of 17,497 before we can start taking advantage of Supremes’ matching funds to our Christopher Fund twice a year. We haven’t had this opportunity for quite some time. Read more...
