State Convention Committee Chairman are reaching out to the councils that are on their respective committees for input, so respond back promptly with your delegates emails so the chairman can complete their reports. State Secretary Ray Lemay will need your delegate information for the Virtual Voting List so he can set up the voting protocols for the Convention. Again, more information as we move forward…

On March 26th, the Supreme Council's webinar provided pertinent information for moving forward under these unprecedented events surrounding the COVID-19 virus. See Presentation Slides: Presentation Slides PDF

Online Masses. Virtual rosaries. Stay at home. How things have changed in less than a month. I fully encourage you to go use the link above to view the Supreme Councils “Leave No Neighbor Behind” program. As Knights we are fortunate to have our brother Knights to reach out to for comfort and support. Others, especially elderly, might not have that luxury. So reach out where you can.

Pray for the “essential” businesses and employees that are keeping some semblance of order in our lives.
brave souls that are required to work in essential and critical jobs. Stay safe, minimize risks. God Bless.


Joseph J Kowalik III, State Deputy


Our Supreme Council is closely watching COVID-19 developments and has issued guidance to our Brother Knights in a recent message.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing global events surrounding COVID-19 many local Councils need to stay focused on handling the “normal” council business. Many activities can still take place, but through creative use of online applications that are available.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing global events surrounding COVID-19 the State Council has collectively decided to switch to a Virtual Convention format to transaction the annual business of the New Hampshire State Council on the same weekend of May 1 ,2, & 3.
