Praise be Jesus Christ!

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5:16)

Brothers,

The new Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christian icons have arrived.  The purpose of these Icons is to spread devotion to Our Lady and pray for our brothers and sisters of faith who are at risk around the world through the Marian Prayer Program.  As the new Marian image is brought on pilgrimage through Indiana, councils will host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians icon for a prayer service at their parish.  The Icons will be traveling around Indiana for the next two years.  Contact our Marian Hour Chairman Jim Recasner (317-515-7269, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or your DD for details.

Congratulations to Columbia City Council 7235 (District 13) and Greencastle Council 6989 (District 26) who were first to achieve 100% of their membership quota.  These councils will be first ones to host the Icons and hold Marian Prayer Services.

The Marian Icon Prayer is a program under the Faith category.  Step-by-step instructions for conducting this program are available from the Supreme website.

 

October is our Order-wide Church Drive Month.  It would be a great tribute to hold an Admission Degree in honor of your Bishop or Parish Pastor.   Once you have the honorees permission, you can announce the honoree in your parish bulletin or council newsletter, hold the Admission Degree, and then present the “First Degree Honoree Scroll” (#271E) to the honoree afterwards listing the names of new members.

Promoting and sending a large contingent from your Council & Parish to a Catholic Men’s Conference can be a “Spiritual Reflection Program.”   Wear your Knights of Columbus-branded apparel to the conference.  The Indiana Knights of Columbus State Council, working with our General Agents, will be sponsors at the following conferences and will staff K of C information booths:

Be a patriot.   Get registered to vote before 10/9/18.   Inform yourself about the issues and candidates. Vote on Tuesday 11/6/18.  It’s your duty as a faithful citizen.

Pray and ask our Lord to make us better men, husbands, and fathers to build up our families, Parishes, and His Church.  Pray daily for our Pope and all our Priests and Bishops.  Pray for our country; our people, civil leaders, judges, police, and military.  

Use every opportunity to ask a good Catholic man to join us today!

In Charity, Unity, and Fraternity,

Paul Zielinski
