A Call-out to All Brother Knights, Check on Your Brother

This is a CALL OUT TO ALL BROTHER KNIGHTS IN THE NOR-CAL CHAPTER. We must check on all our Brother Knights in this Chapter to determine if he and his family need assistance. This is especially true of our older brothers that are homebound, live alone and may not have family close by to provide assistance. Ask if they need bottled water, food, a ride to the store, etc.

Please check on all your Brother Knights and their families to see if there is anything we as Knights can do to help. Now is the time to step into the breach and be bold to help your Brother Knights. On top of the COVID-19, we have problems with wildfires across California. We have six major fires in Southern California – five in Central California – five in the San Francisco Bay Area and 14 in Northern California today.

YOU are not alone, we are ready and willing to HELP. I need to know if there are Brother Knights or family members who are in NEED. I won't know unless you reach out. Please call or email with a response to this message.

Vivat Jesus,
Bro. Salvatore Di Marco III

Our Freedom Is in Danger

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
   I don't normally post such messages, but this is rather important for our patriotism.  
https://www.returntoorder.org/2020/07/should-john-lennons-imagine-replace-the-star-spangled-banner/?pkg=rtoe1027

They want to replace our national anthem with something written by a Brit.  We were under their rule and fought for our freedom from them for too many years.  Read this article and pray that this does not happen.

If you want to see a constitutional horror show in the making, Google this phrase, “New Way Forward Act”. If you’re not praying the rosary after reading what this act is promoting you will be, I guarantee it.

(from WDS Ed Blake)
Sincerely, Webmaster Karen Rich

Live Streaming Masses

As many of us are shut in because of the Covid 19 virus, we have had to substitute our regular Mass attendance with offerings from either the internet or our TV’s. I wanted to share with all of you a source for Mass that my sister-in-law shared with us.

This Mass is put on by:

Heart Of The Nation
1205 S. 70th Street, Suite 701
Milwaukee, WI 53214
https://www.heartofthenation.org/
Email:
TOLL FREE: 1-855-855-MASS (6277)
Milwaukee: 1-414-475-4700
Fax Number: 1-414-475-3621

Normally, Catholic TV Mass is celebrated by Heart Of The Nation at St. Francis de Sales Seminary in Milwaukee, WI. However, the Seminary chapel is currently unavailable so this Catholic Mass is being presented at St. Joseph’s Croatian Parish in Milwaukee, WI.

The Mass is presented every Sunday morning at 8:30 AM on KOFY TV-20, (Comcast Channel 13), San Francisco, CA. The Mass lasts for 30 minutes and moves quickly. What’s of interest is how the Mass is conducted. There is a choir from St. Joseph’s Parish somewhere in the Milwaukee area that consists of about 7 people and a keyboardist. The choir members are spaced 6’ apart, they do not wear masks, and they sound great.

So next Sunday, if you would like to have a different experience “watching” Mass, we would urge you to check this out.

Note: Masses can also be found at LiveMass.net and St. Patrick Catholic Church Placerville.

Council Assessment Announcement

April 2, 2020

Worthy Financial Secretaries,

During these uncertain times we hope this finds you and your family well.

Because of the current issues with the coronavirus, we are sensitive to the impact that this has had on our councils. As a result, the Supreme Council has decided to waive the suspension process for the January 1, 2020 assessments. No council will be suspended on April 10, 2020.

Additionally, the Supreme Council will not levy Per Capita, Catholic Advertising, or Culture of Life assessments on July 1, 2020 for the second half of the calendar year.

Please know that this message has since been conveyed to state deputies.

We have taken measures to make sure that your council does not receive additional delinquent notifications and reports. However, if you receive anything to the contrary, please let know so that they can make sure your council can concentrate on the more pressing matters of COVID-19.

We hope that you remain safe and healthy.

Fraternally,
Michael J. O’Connor
Supreme Secretary

Safe Environment Compliance Reporting

Worthy Brothers,

You have asked and Supreme has made the reports available WEEKLY regarding Safe Environment!! This was sent out to ALL Chapter Presidents, DD Mentors, and All DD's of record, and all those that recieve the STAR.TRACKER report.

Thank You,

Wanted to share the news that the member status report is now available each week in Officers Online. This announcement was shared with all State Deputies at the recent meeting in Orlando as well.

See the files in English and Spanish. I think this will go a long way towards helping our members understand exactly where they stand with Safe Environment Compliance. Feel free to share with your Jurisdiction and help get the word out.

Just as Officers Online works now, what a member can view will depend on his access to Officers Online, and the fact that DDs will now be able to view the compliance of all their councils will bring more councils into compliance more quickly each year.

We are listening and making improvements.

Official Guidebook Launch - Leave No Neighbor Behind

A few moments ago, the Supreme Knight launched the Coronavirus Pandemic Response Guidebook for Knights of Columbus councils. This new program, developed in record time, offers practical, safe, and helpful suggestions for actions to be taken by councils and assemblies during the pandemic crisis.

Please download the guidebook, review it closely, and use it to guide the service actions of your members during this time of acute need. In short, the main pillars of the program are:

  1. Support Your Brother Knights
  2. Support Your Parish
  3. Support Your Community
  4. Feed the Hungry
  5. Participate in Blood Drives

Download Guidebook

You are encouraged to do whatever portions of the program are suitable and feasible for your members and assets. Close partnerships with your pastors and community leaders are essential elements of this program.

The Supreme Council and Staff are working hard to coordinate the efforts of the entire Order during these challenging times. Please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance. And please don’t hesitate to share your good ideas with

Thank you for Stepping into the Breach in this war with the Coronavirus. Your prayers, charitable contributions, and brave service will save lives and hasten the return to normal life.

Help Support the Columbian Retirement Home

A few months ago, I called on you, and all California grand knights, to consider a Council donation to this year’s Columbian Retirement Home Appeal. If your Council is among those councils that have already responded, I thank you. If not, I respectfully again ask for you to lead your Council in supporting this Brother Helping Brother mission.

In my earlier appeal to you, I stressed our increased financial need, driven by decreasing revenue from the Corporation’s small investment portfolio, increasing operating costs, and continued rental subsidies. Now, our finances face even further strain as we are looking at the requirement to replace the heating and air conditioning system at our Columbian Center in Marysville.

Having served us for over 30 years, and as a convent for religious for many prior years, this HVAC system is now over 60 years old, inefficient, increasingly unsupportable and costlier with each year. This requirement to install a serviceable HVAC system at Marysville will yield additional cost savings long term, and we are assessing even more savings through future electrical service changes, but achieving these long-term savings come with up-front cost.

As I reported to you in my April letter, we have already taken what actions we can to minimize our current operating costs, thereby increasing funds available for direct support of those we serve. Among those actions we reduced postal costs this year by more than 80% by not sending individual letters to all 78,000 California knights, instead appealing to them through you, as their Council leader, to generate needed support.

This is why I am repeating my appeal to you to consider designating the Columbian Retirement Home Inc. as a one of the recipients of funds planned for charitable support in 2019. If your current budget will not allow, then I ask that you add an additional event to your 2019 program dedicated to fund such a Council donation.

Finally, please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your kind consideration in assisting us in our Mission. I look forward to receiving your donation of support, which you can mail to: Columbian Retirement Home Inc., P.O. Box 4338, El Monte, Ca 91734-0438.

Quick Tips from Fraternal

Thank you for all the work you do every day to help Catholic men become better husbands, fathers, sons and neighbors. It is our goal to provide you with the resources you need to do even more of the work that must be done and to be successful in your evangelization and growth efforts.

We are launching a new "Quick Tips From Fraternal" video series to help you, as a council leader, be more successful in your efforts to engage and recruit more prospective Knights. Every few weeks, we will release a new video via e-mail and on the Leadership Resources section of the website . The first video of this series features Damien O'Connor, Senior Director of Member Experience and Formation, and current grand knight of his parish council in Trumbull, CT. He provides six tips to successfully communicate with your pastor.

I hope you find these videos helpful and useful as you continue the good and necessary work you do. As always, thank you for all you do every day to grow the Order and keep the vision of Fr. McGivney alive. I wish you a blessed Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Fraternally,

Ceremonials Information

Worthy Chapter President, District Mentor, and District Deputy,

I note there is a problem with the changes we made in Ceremonials this year. So I would like to clarify some things that were stated at the Organizational District Deputy Meeting.

1. All requests for Knighthood and Formation Degrees, should be sent to the District Mentor and Chapter President for coordination and approval. They will send it to me for assignment of Conferring Officers or access to Formation Degree Team material from Supreme.

2. The email to use for these requests is

3. Remind all Degree Teams that the use of the Baldric is the preferred uniform for all degrees.

Any questions, please read the Membership Handbook for the Ceremonials section; then contact your District Mentor and Chapter President and then me.

Protecting Our Children: A Family's Response

I invite you to watch “Protecting Our Children: A Family’s Response,” the story of one family’s experience with child sex abuse and the hope and healing that followed. In this film, a brother Knight and his wife share the importance of faith and family in addressing the sexual abuse of their son by a close family friend. You will feel the pain of what they describe, but you will be glad that you met this family. Their hope is that all who hear their story will be equipped with the critical knowledge and specific steps needed to better protect the children in their lives. My hope is that this film will bring families, parishes and communities closer together to protect children from the serious risk of sexual abuse.

Fraternally,

Carl A. Anderson
Supreme Knight

1,000 Ultrasounds:
The KofC’s Greatest Humanitarian Effort WATCH VIDEO

Millions of babies have had a chance at life, thanks to 1,000 ultrasound machines donated by you and your brother Knights around the world.

Congratulations to our Knights in Manassas, Va., where the 1,000th machine was just dedicated! Read about the dedication here.

At the dedication, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said that the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative is the greatest humanitarian effort the organization has ever undertaken.

“Today represents a very concrete way in which millions of lives are changed for the better by the Catholic community coming together and volunteering together,” said Anderson. “What greater legacy can a person have than to save a child’s life?”

As hundreds of thousands gather in Washington, D.C., to pay witness to the Culture of Life, check out the video below and share our pride in the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound program!

Reach Prospects Electronically!

Worthy Brothers,

Online Membership is allowing us to reach younger men where they are:  on their cell phones, tablets, and computers.  Statewide, over 250 men have joined the Order online so far this Columbian Year.  However, many other men have expressed interest in learning more about the Knights but were not quite ready to pay the $30 dues and join Online.

Now we have a tool to utilize that will automatically invite a Prospect to join Online and send him weekly messages about the Knights of Columbus.  Supreme is offering us automated, online marketing software called “Marketo”.  Each Council can request a Lead Generation Program for use at special events, conferences, and in-person prospecting opportunities.  Think of it as aDigital Prospect Card that will automatically send a weekly informational email to men who sign up!  Go to http://info.kofc.org/pagerequest.html  The page request form automatically sends your Membership Team an email with all the information they need to create the program.  In 2-4 days, the council receives a custom URL, available on any device, and the Lead Generation Program is ready to use.

When you use the link above, you will see this simple page:

Once your Council receives its Lead Generation Program, the page that a Prospect will complete asks only for First Name, Last Name, and Email.  You will need to use your laptop, pad, or Smart Phone to allow Prospects to sign up.  (Note: It is NOT intended to be sent out via email directly to Prospects.)

Once form is filled out, a prospect immediately receives a customized email from Council with link to join the Knights of Columbus online: 

The prospect is also enrolled in a nurture drip-email campaign, and will receive additional information weekly.

Finally, the Council receives a copy of all contacts enrolled via their custom “Marketo” form.

Then, bring a laptop, pad, or smart phone to all of your Council’s Faith In Action events and have one of your Brother Knights help men use your Council’s Digital Prospect Card.

Keep in mind that you should continue to offer the “You Were Born A Man, You Become A Knight” Online Membership card (Form #10536) to men when you are not using the Digital Prospect Card to sign them up via an electronic device.

Remember the December Challenge:  “Become A Knight Before Christmas.” (or at least by New Year’s Day)  Each Council was challenged to bring in one more Brother by 12/31/18.  Give your Council a Christmas present:  bring in a new Brother!

Please forward this message to any Brother Knight who may choose to use it to help build your Council. 

Yours in Service,

Michael Brault
California State Membership Director

Council Visibility

Worthy Brothers,

Although we are often reluctant to do so, every council should publicize its charitable works and activities whenever possible. Your parishioners should clearly see the Knights of Columbus are alive and active in your parish and community. Following are ideas to increase the visibility of your council and demonstrate our commitment in the parishes we serve:

  1. Ask all Brother Knights to wear their name badges whenever they are at church.
  2. Order council polo shirts, t-shirts, hats, vests, or jackets and encourage Brothers to wear them.
  3. Make use of your parish bulletin. Be sure to ask for a bulletin announcement on the weekend before an event, the weekend of the event, and even a thank you for participating the weekend after an event. If it was a fundraiser; show your results, where the money is going, and thank parishioners for their contributions.
  4. Whenever possible, write your bulletin announcements as an open invitation to all parishioners and add at the end of the announcement, “Sponsored by Knights of Columbus Council __________ at ___________ parish.
  5. Use Knights of Columbus tablecloths, canopies and canopy back walls whenever you can. Use them at your breakfasts, dinners, sign up tables, membership drives, food collection tables (Food for Families), and at any event sponsored by the council.
  6. NOTE: tablecloths, canopies and canopy back walls can be ordered from links found on the state website: http://www.californiaknights.org or using the forms below. Tablecloths ​will be available for purchase at a reduced cost at the annual State Convention in Sacramento May 17-19, 2018.

  7. Always have flyers with a name, phone #, and email of a person to contact in church entryways and reception areas around your parish. Include, contact cards, photo displays of Knights in action andColumbia magazines in church offices and waiting areas.
  8. Focus on sponsoring spiritual activities (5th Sunday Rosary, men’s retreats, prayer groups, Bible studies, etc.) Show your parish that your council helps to deepen the Faith of the men who are involved.
  9. In addition, focus on sponsoring family activities such as parish dinners (even pot luck dinners), family movie nights, family camping trips, talent shows, etc. Sponsoring family events is a great way to involve growing families in the parish (with young fathers) in Knights of Columbus activities.
  10. Consider ordering the “Domestic Church Kiosk and Booklet Set” for your parish. Booklets are available in English or in Spanish. For $150, you will get the Kiosk with 225 booklets (15 each of 15 different booklets). Order using this web page: knightsgear.com/kiosk-set.

All of these should serve to increase Knights of Columbus visibility in your parish and community.
​Here are some forms to help you order the items mentioned above:
