September 2019


The Biking for Babies event is taking place Sept 20-22. Click HERE for the flyer with information.

The importance of filing Supreme Forms #185 and #365 at the beginning of each fraternal year cannot be overemphasized!  There are two important uses behind them:

  1. Identifying your Council’s leaders and the personnel that conduct the activities of your council.
  2. Enabling Supreme to identify the Knights who are to be certified for the SEP PROGRAM as required by Supreme.  Please do this today if not already done so, and distribute to State and Supreme.

As a reminder for your planning meetings, the LIFE required activity for the Columbian Award is a NOVENA.  Other life activities are Silver Rose, Christian Refugee relief, Pregnancy Center Support and a Mass for people with Special Needs.  Please try to do one or more. A resource publication #10831 FAITH IN ACTION is available for you.

The month of August  has gone by quickly and the Semiannual Audit was due on the 15th.  It is required to be filed so that  your Treasurer and Financial Secretary will continue to be bonded.  Check with your Trustees to ascertain if it has been completed and distribute as required.

The 11th K of C National March for Life is scheduled for January 22, 2020 –January 25, 2020.  Indiana has had a very huge part in this activity and let’s do it again.  First payment of $160.00 of the total #285.00 cost is due NOW!!  Survey your members to get any indication of attending and help them with the cost.  Questions should be directed to Mike Velasco at 219-663-0509.

That’s all for now, 



Fred Schmits
