Last year there were 48 positions reported to Supreme as “Not In Compliance” with the MANDATORY Praesidium Armatus Safe Environment training.
Failure to have all the required positions, including Grand Knight, certified disqualifies your Council from participating in State and Supreme awards and incentives.
This is not just another program from Supreme! This is an essential program in today’s anti-Catholic, anti-Church, Cancel Culture that wants to attack and destroy those principles which we hold dear and sacred. Having this training defuses the mantra of “abuser” screamed without cause at many merely because we have the audacity to proclaim we are Christians, Catholics and proud members of our Order.
Grand Knights, after the 15th make sure you and your Officers all take the training. Then, just like at work, make sure you report that the training has been completed.
Listed below are access links. If you have not yet received your access information from Supreme, call immediately. After the 15th go on line and complete the training. Grand Knights, it is your responsibility to assure that your staff meets the requirements.
The training is good and transferable to diocesan positions (usher, Lector, EM, etc.) within your parish, so no duplicate training.

Access to Praesidium’s Armatus training site will be down from 7/01/2020 thru 7/15/2020 as we prepare Fraternal Year End Reports.
Council Meeting Suggestion: Some of the programs can be viewed on-line. If you are still meeting virtually, then they can be shared. If you are meeting in-person, a simple projector from a laptop and you have a short, informative Lector’s program for a meeting.
If you have any questions please contact me. If you are delinquent, I will contact you, please don’t make me contact you.
