I thank all of you that fulfilled your obligation in attending Saturday’s Winter Quarterly Meeting. Delegates are the representatives of your council and should be sharing the information provided. Also, we had two successful breakout sessions where attendees could see and talk directly with the panelists for questions and answers. We will be providing more opportunities to continue online Q/A sessions on specific subject & topics.

This week we have two Webinars for your benefit. As an added feature for the Rosary Program we will be hosting a Q&A at the conclusion of the rosary to assist councils that would like guidance on conduct online rosary in their council or parish. The same concept could be used to host a Culture of Life event or a Fraternal Benefits Night.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021!  January will be a busy month. As a function of your State Council, certain activities, regardless of restrictions, need to occur. It is preferred these functions happen in person, but if not, they still need to be done. The Executive Board is scrutinizing the second half of the fraternal year looking forward and moving forward.

Last January rumors began regarding a virus coming out of China. By March, COVID-19 was well known and has disrupted much of the way of life as was so routinely accepted. As the year progressed, as adjustments were made, as we all had to carefully adapt to changes to the ways we interact with each other, the new normal settled in. 

Many of you have successfully supported your church and parish in provided the assistance needed to your priests and our bishop. Many have donated to support our seminarian programs.
