Safe Environment - Office of Youth Protection:
As a reminder, make sure that your council is Youth Protection trained. Remember that councils
need to be compliant with all the new Safe Environment requirements to be eligible for Star Council
Award.

 

The following people in your council need training and background check:

  • Grand Knight - training
  • Program Director - training
  • Family Director - training and background check
  • Community Director - training and background check

Remain compliant with updated Safe Environment requirements (see kofc.org/safe for details).


Council Activity Program Description Form
Reminder - only 3 months left to get your Council Activity Program Description Forms in. Remember that without strong Council Activity Programs, your council will not attract new membership nor will it be able to retain the members you currently have. The form is available on www.kofcsask.com website under Forms & Applications for State Council Events - Council Activity Program Report Form.


Thank you for all you do for the Knights.


If you have any questions about the new "Faith in Action" programs, please feel free to contact me.
From Brenda and I, we wish you and your families a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.


Vivat Jesus
