Worthy Brother Knights,
Faith - Faith
At times during these past 13 months of pandemic I felt lucky, also unlucky. I encountered with 3 individuals who contracted Covid 19, but I tested negative – feeling lucky. Feeling not so lucky in that I lost 2 close friends and one who still is seriously ill from the virus. I also lost the ability to attend church services, be with family and friends and you my Brother Knights – unlucky. Yet during these past 13 months of separation and loss of friends, I still maintained my faith that it WILL GET BETTER! And faith led me to find a different way to maintain relationships with family, friends, and clients.
That is why, I developed a catalyst for our Jurisdiction of RECONNECT 2020-21. Thinking of ways for me and all Brother Knights to help those in need during this pandemic - Leaving No Neighbor Behind!
Many of you remember my theme as State Deputy of a Call to Serve. We men were all called to serve by joining this fraternity of Knights.
To practice the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 25: 35-40. ‘For I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’
Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’
And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
If you have “Reconnected,” thank you. If not, now is the time. Now is the time to lead the way, to practice the Gospel of Matthew. Our time is NOW!
We as Knights, the foot soldiers of our Order, need to go back to our Councils, parishes and communities and show what we are all about to LEAVE NO NEIGHBOR BEHIND!

I can also assist you in spreading information about fundraisers or any other important causes that you might want to assist. For example, brothers from out of town areas could assist you financially if you are raising money for a baby box. Or if your council has a long-standing history with a local women’s care center, your brothers throughout the state can assist you if they have some notice about it.
Remember to include contact information and a brief description when sending in photos or sending in a blurb about an event. If you need assistance with social media issues or wanting to feature your stuff in the local press, please email me and I can send you the appropriate information to help you out.
