We are Catholic men building a bridge back to faith. There is much work to be done in this world. Good work. Necessary work. And that's what the Knights do. Assisting the sick and disabled, changing lives and saving lives through our "faith in action" programs. We do it to be better husbands, fathers, sons, neighbors and Catholics. The governing body of our fraternity is the Supreme Council located in New Haven CT. The ultrasound initiative, partnering with Supreme, has reached our goal of raising enough funds to purchase eleven ultrasound machines to be distributed throughout Indiana this year. We are raising $500.00/seminarian as supreme donates another $100.00 to the participating councils that are adopting seminarians.
Supreme is providing support with excellent marketing and promotional material regarding the four required Faith in Action activities (spiritual reflection program, a Novena for Life, Helping Hands and a Consecration to the Holy Family) at no charge. Is your council participating in these wonderful programs? It is one thing to say who you are. It's another to live it - to put your values into action. That's what we do when we are a Knight of Columbus. That's who we are.
Please contact your parish Priest and District Deputy for help in any of these areas. Your district deputy is reporting on your council activities and goals for our tracker and discovery awards.
As we participate in this Advent Season approaching Christmas, be a spiritual leader and plan a few "Holy Moments" for your family and parish community. We are celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. What a joy! Such a special time.
I am praying that you and your families will have a Holy and Merry Christmas!
State Program Director
