May 2015

Greetings Brother Knights!
WOW! What a terrific State Convention we had recently. With the appearance and talk from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, the inspiring words of our State Chaplain and other speakers, and the many educational opportunities, this convention really brought home the message that NOW is a great time to be active in the Knights of Columbus. The social component was good, too, as many Brothers and wives got reacquainted with old friends & made new ones, had the chance to share spirituality at two terrific Masses and a Patriotic Rosary, and rejoiced with the many award winners at the luncheon and banquet. A brief list of award winners is at the bottom of this article, and some of the Director's articles provide more details.

Although we are near the end of the Fraternal Year, we are not AT the end. There is still time to submit activity reports and forms. Several council representatives worked with me and the Directors at the convention to understand their current standing and goals for both the State and the Supreme awards. Be sure to check out the latest version of the Activity Tracker on the IN State KofC website at (next update due around May 25th) All submissions for Indiana activities and forms should be sent in by June 15th. Details about all the quotas and requirements are in the IN Programming guide that was delivered to each DD & GK after the summer 2014 meeting, but anyone can download the pdf of the guide by looking under Program Director at the State website, or by using this direct link:
