I witnessed History and was part of it, as I was installed as your returning state deputy in New Haven, Connecticut, on Friday, June 11th. Our new Supreme Knight, Patrick Kelly, was installed as our 14th supreme knight ‘Our Highest Calling’ | KofC.org He has dedicated his term to St. Joseph. Entering St. Mary’s Church was a dream fulfilled. I lit two votive candles – one for our deceased knights, the other for our living knights in need of prayers.
With a new Fraternal Year starting, I ask everyone to recommit and re-engage your council. Submit (via email) Supreme Forms 185 and 365. Ask your Catholic friends to become members! By doing these simple steps, you will get your council off to a flying start, and, by years end, achieve Star Council.
Our Supreme Office is slowly reopening. Please continue to email all correspondence. DO NOT use the Postal Service.
Your district deputy will be attending our Organizational Meeting the weekend of 9-11 July. In addition to getting critical information to take back to you, he will be giving you three key items to ensure success: Our Faith in Action Guidebook, the Fraternal Planner and our 2021-‘22 State Program Guide. If you utilize these invaluable resources, your success is assured!

Continue to help your fellow council members, widows, and your church community get back up to speed.
