Council Activity Ideas

State Council Director Mission Statement

Continuing to build on the solid foundation established by our predecessors, we must continue the good works that they initiated. We must ensure that our Council activities/programs are entertaining, enjoyable and beneficial to our members, their families and our communities.

Our council programs should foster a sense of fraternity and family within the Knights of Columbus community. It is also important that we strive to keep our membership accurately and constantly informed of not only our current projects but our future ones also.
