State Deputy Report August 2018


My Brother Knights:

     They say “How time flies when you are having fun!”

     Here we are already one and a half months into our fiscal year and it seems like the State Convention was only a few weeks ago. A lot has happened since then. The Organizational meeting was held and hopefully your District Deputy has had or scheduled your District meeting. There is so much new information out there and I hope it is all getting passed on to you. You may also go on line at and get all the information on the new Faith in Action program. Check it out….the more you know the easier and more fun the Knights of Columbus can be.

Earlier this month we presented some of the checks from the monies that you donated to the Just Ask Campaign. Presented so far were checks to:

  • The Seminarian Fund….$3,000
  • The Bishop McDonald Golf Classic…..$2,500
  • Hispanic Growth….$1,000
  • Vocations Ministry…..$500
  • DOLR Website…..$500
  • Arkansas Catholic….$500./ with another $3,000 budgeted for advertising in the Arkansas Catholic.
  • Sisters of Charity “Abba House”…..$2,500 and,

From your donations from the Per Capita Statement, $6,580 went into the Seminarian Education Trust Fund established two years ago.

Thank You for helping these ministries.

     The Supreme Convention was held August 7-9 and was very informative for those who attended. IPSD Philip Savage and wife Cindy, State Deputy Roy Anderle and wife Cathy, State Secretary Alan Halman and wife Margie, Knight of the Year Tony Diaz and wife Ann, Family of the Year Walter and Judy Free. Also in attendance were State Chaplain Fr. Patrick Boland OSB and Associate Chaplain Fr. Alejandro Puello and State Master Newton White and wife Linda Kay. If you did not at least catch the Masses on EWTN, You Missed It!!

Remember to ask someone to join you in the Knights of Columbus. You may be helping them to become a better Catholic, husband, father, member of your Parish, and even an asset to your Council.

God Bless you All.
