February 1, 2016


As you are aware, our mission is to build the domestic church, while strengthening our parish. In doing this, we are helping our pastors and priests in their ministry to bring our faith community closer to God. The number one thing we can do to meet this objective is to grow the Order. With more men and their families in the Knights of Columbus, you and your council will be better fortified to help our parish grow stronger. Congratulations to the councils listed below for already meeting and/or exceeding their 2015-2016 Supreme membership recruitment quotas! These councils are doing everything they can to strengthen their parish! They are well on their way to earning the Star Council Award. 

So far during this fraternal year, of the 145 councils in Arizona, we have 41 who have not recruited a single new member. Of these councils, 11 of them did not recruit any new members last fraternal year, either. Your District Deputy, State Membership Chairman Kevin McCarthy, State Officers, and I are here to help these councils and all the councils in Arizona to grow and prosper. 

The Arizona Knights of Columbus 2015-2016 fraternal year’s theme is “Find Us Ready Lord”. This year’s theme deals with the Destiny of Man and how we prepare ourselves for our final reward and attain the joys of heaven. We can prepare with Service, Prayer, Charity, Unity, Fraternity, & Patriotism.  We need to build our Order stronger so together we can work to combat the evil lurking in our world today. Please pray the Prayer of St. Michael the Archangel at the end of every meeting and gathering. Satan 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.

Vivat Jesus!
