January 2020

Brothers,  VIVAT JESUS!!!

Marches for Life will occur in several cities in addition to Washington DC on Jan 24th. Follow the links to see if you can participate in a local MFL in Chicago on Jan 11th, Indianapolis on Jan 22nd, or Ft Wayne on Jan 18th.

With the hustle and bustle of the many preparations for enjoying the celebration of the birth of our Savior, this article contains just a few important items.  Plus, Sandy and I wish every Knight in all our Councils a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

The recent Mid-Year meeting of the DD’s was loaded with information concerning many new procedures and operational aspects of our order.  Since all DD’s will be conducting their District meetings soon all GK’s must attend to get up to date about these items.  

One particular item will be the change in how all councils receive information about the State meeting in April.   There will be one State Council mailing occurring the first part of JANUARY, informing councils about the Convention. Note…THIS MEANS NO REGISTRATION DOCUMENTS, NO ROOM RESERVATION INFO AND NO DELEGATE AND ALTERNATE DOCUMENTS.  Please be aware!  There will be money discounts for early action for early registration.

Form 8584 is due January 21, 2020.  This is the Indiana Special Olympics form.  Money payment to the State is determined by the data from this form.

Safe Environment compliance is mandatory!  Carefully complete this requirement in your council.

Lastly, at this early date all councils are to contact me to announce their intention to receive the SILVER ROSE for a program in their council.  The pilgrimage will be in Indiana between late April and mid June in 2020. Please address any questions to me so we can plan.
