STATE PROGRAM DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Greetings my Brother Knights:

Summer is over. 2017-2018 Fraternal Year is 25% over. We are into Fall. Time for us to start moving forward with our Knights of Columbus Service Programs. Think about all the good things your council can do for your Church and your Community. Time to review how your council will participate in the following programs - Refund Support Vocations, Building the Domestic Church: The Family Fully Alive, Keep Christ in Christmas, Marian Prayer, Canadian Wheelchair Foundation, Special Olympics, March for Life, Food for Families, Family of the Month and Family of the Year, Coats for Kids, Basketball Free Throw, Soccer Chal-lenge, Substance Abuse Awareness Poster Contest and Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest.

Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish - all councils are required to implement Domestic Church activities into their annual action plan. Work with your pastor in organizing a combination of activities aimed at strengthening the bond between your council, parish and families. There are four categories of Domestic Church activities for councils to choose from, including Member Activities, Family Activities, Parish Activities and Communi-ty Activities. Any council that organizes at least two Do-mestic Church activities from each of the four categories will receive a commemorative Holy Family icon. For a checklist of Domestic Church activities and further details, please visit kofc.org/domesticchurch website.

Thank you to the councils that submitted their Council Activity Program Description Forms, continue to submit them to me. To councils that I have not heard from, please start using this form to report on all your Council Activity Pro-grams. The form is available on www.kofcsask.com web-site. The Council Activity Program Description Form and information on State Council Recognition Program for this Fraternal Year are included in this newsletter. 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.

Grand Knights and Financial Secretaries - has your council completed the following due reports to Supreme?
1). Form 185 – Officers Chosen for Term Report – due July 1.
2). Form 365 – Service Program Personnel Report – due August 1.
3). Form 1295 – Semi-annual Audit Report – due August 15.
If your Council is one that has not submitted all of these due reports, please get them into Supreme this month, October.

If you have any questions related to the General Program Director position, please feel free to send me an email at kofc.saskstate.sgpd@kofcsask.com.

I will do my best to get you an answer.

Vivat Jesus
Eugene Achtemichuk
State General Program Director
