Worthy Brother Knights,

The most repeated phrase in the whole Bible, in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, is “Fear not!” or “Have no fear!” or “Do not be afraid!” or “Be not afraid!”  It is often claimed that this phrase appears exactly 365 times in the Bible, one for each day of the year.

As we begin a new fraternal year, as we begin to reopen our churches, workplaces, entertainment centers, we need to open our Councils and Assemblies to begin anew our programs, our service to others as we did before the pandemic. 

I understand that some of us may still fear encountering someone who has not been vaccinated.  So as council and assembly leaders, you need to apply CDC guidelines so you leave no brother knight behind in his participation in your programs for they should “Have no fear.” 

The time for reconnecting has passed.  The time to move forward is now. Not yesterday, not tomorrow but NOW!

Dear Brother Knight,

All Councils should have received an invitation to attend this special event via USPS mail.  The Gibault Envoy Conference begins at 10:00 AM (EDT) on 9 October 2021.  There will be a "Parade" of Council checks at 12:15 PM.  The Centennial Celebration begins at 2:15 PM and concludes with Mass at 4:30 PM

The Indiana K of C Museum, located on the Terre Haute Gibault campus, will be open during the Envoy Conference/Centennial Celebration and have a special exhibit of items from Councils telling their connection to Gibault.  Your Council can be part of this exhibit.  We want to display your pictures, stories, or physical items that tell your part of the Indiana K of C / Gibault 100-year history.  

The idea of a home for children was first presented at the 1911 Indiana K of C State Convention.  In 1916, the Indiana K of C convention voted to establish the "Gibault Home" in observance of Indiana's 100th anniversary of statehood.   Funds to purchase the Terre Haute property were raised by several means.  Even the immortal Babe Ruth, our brother Knight, did his part by autographing seventy baseballs which were used in raising funds.  It'd be wonderful if one of those baseballs was part of our 2021 Gibault Centennial exhibit.

Actions:

  •          Select a Gibault Envoy to represent your Council.
  •          Submit Registration form to Gibault no later than 1 September 2021.
  •          Contact Museum Curator Dave Gorrell (812-234-8050, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to let him know what you're bringing for our K of C exhibit.
  •          Hold an event to raise money and awareness for Gibault (Jar on the Bar, Breakfast, Dinner, Golf Outing or something else).
  •          Bring checks for "Parade of Checks" and your display piece to the 9 Oct 2021 Envoy Conference.
  •          All attendees and guests must register in advance.  Space is limited, so please register as soon as possible.
