State Deputy Message - July 2015

July 1, 2015


Thank you so much for putting huge efforts towards meeting your council’s Star Council Award. We are still tallying the year end results to see who earned this prestigious award. Once the dust settles, we will send you the final results.  I expect excellent results for Arizona! The 2014-2015 fraternal year was wonderful. Thank you for working with your State Leadership team to help strengthen and grow the Order in Arizona; to be an enormous force for good in your council, Church, family, and community.

I welcome all Brother Knights to attend the 2015-2016 Arizona State Council Organizational Meeting. This meeting is designed especially for our District Deputies to learn of the goals and theme for the new fraternal year. They will be given many tools to help your council grow in strength. You are welcome to attend the meeting on Saturday July 11, 2015, starting at 8:00AM, at Ss. Peter’s and Paul’s Catholic Church, 1946 E Lee St., Tucson, Arizona. You can find the registration information on the State website. I hope to see you there!

Starting with your July 2015 council meeting and throughout this entire fraternal year, I request every council in Arizona pray the Prayer of St. Michael the Archangel at the end of every meeting and gathering. With religious freedom being threatened, our Christian brothers and sisters be martyred for their beliefs, the assault on the culture of life, and the constant attacks on the sacrament of marriage, I sincerely believe that Satan is hard at work. He is destroying our society and Church while working on every family, man, woman, and child to not follow the teachings of our Catholic Church. We must keep our councils and assemblies strong to fight this battle and defend everything we know as good. Please pray that St. Michael will protect us and our Lord will guide us so we will remain victorious and continue to build our Church with service and faith.

  1. Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

    Saint Michael the Archangel

    defend us in battle; 
    Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, 
    O Prince of the heavenly host, 
    by the power of God, 
    cast into hell Satan 
    and all the evil spirits 
    who prowl about the world 
    seeking the ruin of souls.

Vivat Jesus!
