Midyear Organizational Meeting of State Deputies
This past week, with 75 Jurisdictions across the globe, the Supreme Council held the Midyear Organizational Meeting of State Deputies virtually. At the half-way point of the fraternal year, in their addresses Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William Lori provided motivation and inspiration moving into 2021 and beyond. The district deputies will be gathering for their DD Mid-Year Organizational Meeting on December 04-05, 2020 and will be sharing this information with their councils.
I want to acknowledge the improvements in meeting presentation formats and the interactive nature of the break-out sessions and will be incorporating some of the methods in our future meetings.
I encourage you to watch Father Michael McGivney: An American Blessed. This powerful new documentary highlights Father McGivney’s inspiring example of fraternal charity, evangelization, and empowerment of the laity, from his humble beginnings as the son of Irish immigrants to his founding of the Knights of Columbus.

Have You Talked to Your Pastor? Here is a reason.
Last week we provided posters in English and Spanish. Parishioners can go online and learn about Blessed Michael McGivney and the opportunity to join the Knights of Columbus. Shown them to your pastor and asked if you can post them in a visible location: church bulletin board, vestibule, as an insert in your church bulletin?
Send me a picture of you posting the flyer(s), bonus points for included your pastor!
November Deceased Member Remembrances
November is when most recognize Brother Knights that have gone on before us. A memorial Mass or other significant gesture at church would be a respectful acknowledgement from your council.
Remember our veterans and deceased members.
