Veterans Affairs Chairman

November 2020

The month of November is a time to celebrate & honor our nation and military Veterans.  Since before World War I, the Knights of Columbus has helped provide for the spiritual & temporal well-being of our military men and women.  Many Councils & Assemblies plan activities around the 11 November Veteran’s Day Holiday - including hosting a Parish Veterans Mass; planting US Flags in Cemeteries; conducting a Veteran Appreciation event or our Color Guard marching in local Parades.   I would ask that your Council or Assembly let me know of any Veteran-related activity you hold/ participate in during November - to collect those “GOOD IDEAS,” and have them available on our State Website for the “sharing” among our Knights.  This can be a good reference/ resource to help to expand our support to Hoosier Veterans in the future.   Please forward to Steve Lutz/ veterans This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our FY 2021 State "Veterans Affairs Plan" has a GOAL of raising $5,200 to fund two (2) worthy “Warriors to Lourdes” Candidates for the May 2021 “International Military Pilgrimage" at Lourdes, France.   Our Supreme Knight Carl Anderson strongly supports this most worthy program.  The spiritual healing & awareness possible for our Wounded Warriors at this 40+ Nation military participant pilgrimage is utterly amazing!  If our State Councils & Assemblies can each donate at least $25 - Indiana will easily achieve this Goal (use Form “IN-VET-WL1” to mail your Donation to our State Treasurer, Gil Spisak).   To learn more about the WARRIORS TO LOURDES PILGRIMAGE - go to:; and/or search “Warriors to Lourdes” videos on You Tube.
