From the Desk of the State Deputy July 1, 2017


It is our moral obligation for us to ask every Catholic man, over 18 years old, to become a member of the Knights of Columbus! We need to grow the Order in Oregon so we are strong and stand up for Catholic causes, the Culture of Life, support our Bishops and Priests, and help bring stability to our families andcommunity.

Sometimes, the hardest thing about recruiting is taking the first step. Recruiting a new member can be as easy as asking him to join. Amazingly, many individuals haven't joined the Knights simply because they have never been asked to join. When the opportunity arrives, take the initiative and start a conversation with a potential prospect. It’s the first step for recruiting on a one-on-one basis and can yield very positive results.

Every member of the Knights of Columbus in Oregon is eligible to participate in the “2017-2018 Oregon Star Recruiter” incentive program. All you need to do is recruit a new member, be a friend and guide them through their application process, escort them to their 1st Degree exemplification, and help start them on their way as a successful brother Knight in ourOrder.

Please feel free to reach out to either the State Membership Director Michael Woody or myself for any assistance we can offer towards your successful recruitment efforts.

Vivat Jesus!
