September 2020

Indiana brother knights - first and foremost, I hope you, your family and friends are weathering the pandemic and getting back to a somewhat normal routine.

We were able to conduct our Organizational Meeting, the second week in July - which was a blessing, and councils have been starting to meet again.

Our Supreme “Leave No Neighbor Behind” program initiative has impacted those in most need, and it starts with every brother in each council. I hope your council is meeting again and helping your pastor get through this.

I congratulate the new council officers for this fraternal year, and express appreciation for those who have retired from their posts.

Please submit IN-FORM1 ASAP, as we use the information to publish the State Directory: http://indianakofc.org/download/forms/IN-FORM1_2019.pdf
