State Deputy Report June 2018

“…. I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” – Vince Lombardi

Our finest is upon us as we reach the end of this fraternal year. Together we have achieved wonderful things! We have brought new souls in the Knights of Columbus, we have 16 councils poised to make Star council this year! We have started a new council, 16947 at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew in Little Rock which added 14 new members in less than three months! What does that mean? Could it be that there are other catholic men at other parishes that will join the Knights of Columbus when a new council is started in their parish?

Knights are called to watch our thoughts, they become our beliefs. Watch our beliefs, they become our words. Watch our words, they become our actions. Watch our actions, they become our habits. Watch our habits, they become our character.

It has been an honor for me to serve as your State Deputy of the Arkansas Knights of Columbus for 2 years! I could not have accomplished anything without my wife Cindy and our Lord Jesus at my side.

This year has been the greatest example of Fraternity demonstrated by the outpouring of prayer and support for Cindy and me as we help our son Stefan continue his battle with cancer. When dealing with life and death, everything else seems utterly unimportant. Thank you for always being there for us!

God bless you and your families,


Philip and Cindy Savage
