June 2017

Brother Knights,

We are in the “Final Stretch” as the 2016-17 year ends and we start to prepare for the 2017-18 year, please make sure to complete and submit those forms that are due by your council.  All forms will need to be submitted online or sent by e-mail in PDF format in order to be credited for this year, since at this time in June, hardcopy forms mailed will probably not be received in time to be processed/credited.  

The Columbian Award Application form SP-7 should be submitted to Supreme in early June to allow time for processing to be credited. Please remember to send me a copy, as well. 

There are several council’s in the state that are very close to STAR Council.  Let’s keep the momentum going and get your council to STAR Council!

Check out the latest tracker for your council’s status on the State Website - http://www.indianakofc.org/programs/program-director/activity-tracking and please contact the appropriate State Director if you have any questions on the numbers for your council.

Keep working on “Building the Domestic Church”.


  • The State Program Guide (http://www.indianakofc.org/download/state/2016_2017_Program_Guide.pdf) has the answers to 9 out of 10 questions that we are asked, so it should be your 1st GO TO RESOURCE, when you have a question and need information about a program.  
  • Page 12 in the guide is a good source regarding the Supreme and State forms and when they are DUE.

  • It is very important that you and your council officers frequently check the State (http://www.indianakofc.org/) and Supreme (http://www.kofc.org/un/en/index.html) websites for current events and information.  
  • It is imperative to constantly check your own councils e-mail account that the state created for your council and the State’s IT Administrator (This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • NOTE:  DO NOT include any of the State’s e-mail addresses in your regular council business e-mails to your council members.  The State e-mail addresses are ONLY to be used to conduct business with the State.
