Brother Knights,

 As the summer months approach and the fraternal year draws to a closed, I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL of our over 18,000 brother Knights who worked so hard to make this year a successful one.  We have worked hard all year, so I want to take a moment to remind us all to finish the year strong. Work with your councils to finalize any plans towards a final push for recruitment. Work within your parishes for possible recruits while we keep in mind our Core principles of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity.  Pattern your events with these principles in mind and you will NOT fail.  Show the men in your parish and your community that the Knights of Columbus is the vehicle that will help them attain spiritual growth.  Give the young men of your parish the tools to become better Husbands, better Fathers, and better Catholics.  Knights have the tools to make it happen.  You have drive within you.


We are about to move into an exciting time in the Knights of Columbus.  The new Faith in Action initiative will clarify the confusion of past & tie our programs more closely under the umbrella of Building the Domestic Church.  Our website ( along with the Supreme website ( will give you all the information you’ll need to make your council a success. 


Finally, GET INVOLVED with your local councils.  Empirical evidence has proven that your return on this spiritual investment will be TEN fold.  We all became a knight for a reason.  Reinvigorate that reason & find it in your council.  You will NOT be sorry.
