17. Fraternal Activities During Pandemic Conditions

Although many jurisdictions are slowly reopening, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to present a significant risk, especially to persons who are vulnerable due to age or medical condition. Because the health and safety of our members and guests is of paramount concern, council officers and members are advised to proceed cautiously as they resume ordinary fraternal activity. 

40DaysforLifeDespite the pandemic, there will be a 40 Days for Life Campaign in Manchester.  Please encourage your Councils to participate. Social distancing should be easy.  If your Council cannot attend physically, then set some time for members to pray at the council or at home-  A Virtual 40 Days for Life!

It all begins 09/23/20 at 6pm on Penacook St. with a kickoff prayer service, see attached flyer.

OurLadyGuadalupe 003Featuring an11”x14” quality print of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas & Protectress of the Unborn.

We have decided to EXTEND the deadline to October 13th, the anniversary of the last day Our Lady of Fatima was seen.  

We are asking as last time for Councils to PROMOTE the selling of these prints. If Councils wish, they may order a number of prints to then sell within their parishes.  They are asked to either email the attached to all parishioners, and/or print the attached and place in locations at the parishes to promote the selling of prints.  They may even ask the priest (or they themselves can speak) at the Masses to sell these prints.  Councils and Council members are not obligated to buy prints, though it would be helpful to the cause. They are asked only to promote the sale of the prints.

Brother Knights and families

Camp Fatima and Camp Bernadette did not open due to Covid-19. They are running a significant financial deficit due to the many ongoing expenses associated with keeping the camps and facilities functioning.


Recently there have been videos and reports of statutes of Columbus removed and destroyed in the North End of Boston and even from the State Capital of Ohio,ChristopherColumbus Columbus.  There have been incidents of statuary in cemeteries and even on church grounds where memorials of Mary, various Saints, and even of Christ have vandalized or destroyed.  These actions have been attributed to anarchists, BLM or Antifa or whatever.  The actions are representative of the now apparently ascendant Marxist culture that has infected our society, in my opinion.

Priest launched international lay movement, died in 19th century pandemic 

ROME – The Vatican today (May 27) announced that Pope Francis Pope Francis approved the promulgation of a decree recognizing a miracle attributed to the intercession of the founder of the Knights of Columbus, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney, a Connecticut priest who served his flock during the pandemic of 1890, before himself becoming ill and dying of pneumonia.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Camp Fatima will not open this summer. Therefore, we have cancelled the Camporee for September 2020. Hopefully, we will be able to be back to normal for 2021. Workday will be scheduled for May 22nd and Camporee September 3-6th, 2021. Everyone stay safe. We'll miss you all. Thanks.

God Bless
