Hearty Congratulations on an effort extremely well done!
I Believe councils should take stock in what 's going on. Our #1 Charity is running at a minus this 1st quarter of the year. The State has done its fair share of donating. Now it's time for our Council to kick it into high gear. councils should start setting up some fundraisers just for Gibault. This charity needs your help like never before. So, come on let's make this happen. Thank you, my brother Knights.
Good day gentlemen,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you as your new State Trainer.
I will be working with Jon Olson of Supreme and reporting directly to our State Deputy Scott Schutte.
This will be a Supreme" pilot program" being developed in Indiana only at this time. It will help every Knight to be trained in their position as a Knight from member to State Deputy.
Our goals will be
1) all councils’ members know the part they play in the big picture
2) to make sure all officers needing help receive it
3) to meet with every council in the next two years collecting your needs and input on this program.
4) to work with and meet with all District Deputies and Diocesan District Deputies.
5) To make our state one of the best in the country.
Looking forward to meeting and working with you!

The Pilgrim Icon Program has begun. First, some history. The program began in 1979. Each Knights of Columbus Jurisdiction received Marian images to be the centerpiece of prayer services in churches and councils throughout the Order over the last 40 years. In 2018, the State of Indiana received two Marian images that traveled through 38 Districts across the state from November 18, 2018, through June 30, 2020. The current Icon Program is the 19th Prayer Program sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. The first program in 1979 honored our Blessed Mother under her title of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Since then, the Blessed Mother has been honored under several of her titles, with the latest as Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians. Our current Icon Program features St. Joseph holding the child Jesus. What a blessing to have the patron of our Church as our travelling icon. We have two travelling images that began December 12, 2021 and continue to August 31, 2023.
Each Indiana District and Council will have the blessing of hosting the Icon over the next two years.

Good evening. I hope this finds you and yours doing well.
The online version of the State Directory, FY 2021-2022 has been posted, in Word and PDF formats, on the State Council Google Drive. It can be accessed using your individual, State Council-provided credentials or the State Council-provided credentials for each Council and Assembly.
Please note that, due to security considerations, we cannot provide access to the online directory using a non-State Council-provided email address.
The online directory needs to be updated when anything is missing or anything changes, until next year's directory is published. An important reason for the online directory is to always have a version available where the data is current (e.g., councils who did not submit an IN-FORM1 and assemblies who did not provide a copy of their Form 186 can still make their current information available online even if it isn't in the printed copies).
Please use the form at the back of the directory or contact me via email, text or phone call with any changes.
· Position change for any position listed in the directory
· USPS and email address change
· Phone number change
· Meeting location/date/time change
· New/reactivated or deactivated council or assembly
Printed copies of the Directory are being mailed to:
· State Officers
· State Directors and Chairmen
· District Deputies
· Grand Knights
· Financial Secretaries
· Faithful Comptrollers
· General Agent (multiple copies for Field Agents)
Have a safe week and hope to see you in Indy in December!
~ Purchase your Indiana Knights of Columbus license plate when it's time for your personal car or truck / motorcycle / RV / commercial truck renewal! ~
