Praise be Jesus Christ, now and forever!

I pray you and your family are doing well. Be careful, stay well, and check up on your brothers: "Leave No Neighbor Behind." Thank you for the good work you’re doing to care for your families, brothers, parishioners, and neighbors.
We have only a few weeks left in this Fraternal Year – Finish your year strong and complete the race that you began last July; you can reach your goals! Get all your Star Council Forms submitted. Get SEP compliant. Ask good a man to join us and welcome him and his family into your council. Invite prospects and brothers who’ve not yet bought K of C Insurance to a Fraternal Benefit Night.
Thank you for putting in the extra effort to keep your Council going and get Knights of Columbus work done in a virtual world. Thank you for your patience in dealing with many changes in a spirit of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity: Google for non-profit Indianakofc.org email, new Indiana Discovery Award (Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria) requirements, Exemplification of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity, Fraternal Benefit Night pilot program, one Indiana General Agent, Faith in Action Program model, Indiana K of C Activity database, virtual Council meetings, virtual Exemplifications, and revised Star Council requirements.
It was very good to have about 270 Knights participate in the virtual State Convention over the phone on May 30th. We’re going hold an encore performance by having a virtual State Awards Ceremony on June 14th, to recognize the great work done this year by Councils and brother Knights; meeting details will be distributed soon. There will also be a special Gibault Raffle Drawing event on July 25th, this will be broadcast live directly from the Gibault campus in Terre Haute.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you the past two years as State Deputy. I’m a very lucky man to have a wonderful wife, Lady Sheila, who puts up with me and supports the K of C. Best wishes and prayers for our newly elected State Officers, especially State Deputy Elect Craig Hanusin.
Nothing is impossible with God! Vivat Jesus!
In Charity, Unity, and Fraternity,
Indiana State Deputy
