I would like to thank all the councils who contributed to this year’s “Support our Seminarians (SOS) program.” At the convention in Fort Wayne, we received about 30 checks. This, along with the many checks already submitted to our state treasurer will make this year a good total.
Let me impress upon you that the greatest virtue of the Knights of Columbus is our support of the Holy Father, our bishops, and priests. Yes, our lessons are charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism but our unwritten purpose, our unwritten responsibility, is the support and defense of the priesthood. Your SOS donations help us to realize this obligation.
