Knights at the Ballpark 2016 - Dbacks vs Dodgers - Sept 17


It is that time of year again. Baseball season is in full swing. The Diamondbacks are doing well so far this season. It is hot and we could all use a cold beverage.

On September 17th, we are again having our annual Knights@The Ballpark in support of the Arizona Special Olympics when the D'backs take on the Dodgers.  By participating in this event we all help raise money for the Special Olympians.  Each ticket we purchase returns $2.00 to the Special Olympics, $2.00 to your council and $2.00 for the State Council to support our other charities and activities. This event is not just for Knights. It is for everyone. Knights and their families, Their parish members. The Boy and Girl scout troops and their families too.

Attached are the order forms. For our Southern Knights Councils, we have arranged to have a bus leave from Tucson and take you round trip to the baseball stadium in Phoenix. You can even bring a cooler on the bus. It's cheaper than paying for gas and parking.

State Deputy Message - May 2016

Worthy Grand Knight, Please either read this message aloud at your May Council Meeting; and/or, please print the attachment and hand it out at your May Council Meeting so your council members can read my message. Thanks, State Deputy Larry Becker

May 1, 2016


A very well-known miraculous deliverance God gave the Israelites was when the young shepherd boy, David, killed the champion Philistine warrior with a rock from his sling. That giant of a man stood over nine feet tall and terrorized the whole Israelite army. David faced Goliath, who threatened to kill him, with unwavering faith in Almighty God. Though we will never face a physical Goliath like David did, we will all face many giant obstacles in this life. We must continue to trust God as we continue to run with perseverance the race marked out for us (Heb. 12:1).

The race marked out for us is earning the Supreme Circle of Honor Award for the Arizona jurisdiction and earning the Supreme Star Council Award for your council. To earn this for Arizona, we need to bring about 200 additional men and their families into our Order. To do this, every active council needs to recruit at least 3 more men in May and June. Last fraternal year, we were able to do this in the last two months of the year. We can do it again! SK Vince Lombardi, former coach of the Green Bay Packers, and 4th Degree Knight, said, “It’s easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you’re a winner, when you’re number one. What you’ve got to have is faith and discipline when you’re not yet a winner.” We can be winners! With a disciplined approach, we can do it!

Now is the time to submit your council’s Columbian Award Application Form SP-7. Every council in Arizona should qualify for this award for providing quality council service programs. You can submit the award application now, even if you have not completed some programs until June 30, 2016. Also, you can earn this award even if you did not meet your Supreme membership or insurance quotas. Please note that Supreme will not accept this application after June 30, 2016. Please submit it early so your council will receive the proper recognition for your hard work.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 Arizona State Convention, on May 20 and 21, 2016, at the Casino Del Sol Resort, in Tucson. There will be lots of great information shared, voting for state officers and resolutions, and fun fellowship with Brother Knights from over Arizona.  Click on this link for more information 2016 Arizona State Convention

SK Vince Lombardi also said, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win. “

Brothers, we are winners!

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us!

Vivat Jesus!
