Knights and Brothers,
On behalf of your State Officers, District Deputies, Directors, and Chairman I thank you.
We hope to provide pertinent and timely information and training opportunities to help you
be successful in your Councils. The Weekly Briefing is one vehicle to drive these efforts.
Between the availability of the State Website daily and the Weekly Briefing (being weekly) and the direct guidance of your District Deputy, your opportunities through the Delta Church Drive and Faith In Action programs will enhance your ability to grow your council membership. Through a cooperative effort with the State Webmaster the Weekly Briefing will be changing the way it brings you information. The hope is with access to website links, you can selectively printout specific information pertinent to your council needs.
Your District Deputy will be receiving monthly reports on the status of your councils. Heed their advice. We have already had one council meet their membership goal. We have numerous councils that are up to date on their required reports to Supreme. If you need assistance, ask. District Deputies are there for you!
So in closing, I would like to explain this year’s State Pin Design. The gold trimmed white pin accents this year’s navy blue State Shirt (cheap plug, still available for purchase up to October 1st on the website). It has the Diocesan Catholic Schools icon representing our increased relationship with the Diocese to support Catholic Education. Not to take away from councils localized efforts, this year we are focusing on the newly opened Salve Regina Academy in Gorham NH. Secondly the three colored bars of our order, showing charity, unity, fraternity, are centered with Supreme Council’s theme as the “Year of Unity”. Centrally located over the New Hampshire silhouette is our Lady of Guadalupe embraces our inclusion of multi-cultural councils.
Fraternally, Vivat Jesus, State Deputy Joseph J Kowalik III
