My brother knights,

We have entered the Lenten season and are now preparing for renewal and cleansing of our souls in preparation for the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.  Of the many things that we all will focus on throughout Lent, we must also consider our role as members of the Knights of Columbus, the focus that Blessed Father McGivney possessed when wanting to help those in need, so we too must have a focus on giving.  
If your council hasn’t participated in a Food for Families event or Habitat for Humanity event, this may be a good time to get something set up and going.  Almsgiving, which means the giving of money or food to those in need, is another traditional Lenten practice.  Our Faith in Action programming allows us many ways to accomplish this, along with a lot of council’s long standing traditional events held during Lent, such as your fish fry dinners, stations of the cross, Eucharistic adoration, and so on.

If your family hasn’t participated in the Good Friday family promotion, this is also something that you may want to investigate.  I know it may be hard to have an event during the daytime seeing as many people are at work, but you may want to tailor an event to be held in the evening time.

As always, continue to do the good works that you have always been great at doing.  Keep those 10784 reports coming in, and God bless you in your endeavors.

Just a final thought, convention is coming up soon, so make sure you have voted on your main delegates and your alternate delegates.  Don’t put off registering for the convention until the last minute.  If you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
