As we come to the end of another fraternal year and start a new one, it is a very busy time. Take the time to show your appreciation to those that have stepped up and took a leadership role this past year. Many of them may be continuing on as a leader this year, but possibly in a new position. They need you to show your support for them. Show them your support as the new fraternal year is planned. We are all called to use the special talents that God gave each of us. Don’t ignore your call. Our theme this year will be: WE ARE CALLED.
I would like to thank IPSD Colin Jorsch and his wife Gina for the great work they have done for the last two years as the lead us to success. I will continue to need their help as I take over. If you see Brother Colin or Gina, please thank them for all that they do for the Knights of Columbus.
This past month, Lori and I had the privilege of going to the Supreme headquarters in New Haven, CT. I was installed as your next State deputy in St. Mary’s church. Where the Knights of Columbus all began in 1882. They treated Lori very well while I was getting valuable information to help us here in North Carolina. I am looking forward to a great year.
This past month, we also had our Regional Council Leadership training sessions. I would like to personal thank each of the host Councils for all of their help:
- 1074 Wilmington
- 2838 Fayetteville
- 6600 Greenville
- 7184 Hendersonville
- 10389 Denver
- 11101 Greensboro
- 13812 Durham
I trust that everyone that was able to attend one of these training sessions was very pleased with the fine work done by these Councils. I would also like to thank all those that gave presentations to help those in attendance. Finally, I would like to thank everyone that took time out of their very busy schedules to come and see what they could do better for their members, church and community. I trust you received many very good pieces of information to use. The slides should be posted on the state website this week. Just in case you wish to refer back to them.
How are you coming on:
- Developing your Council plan
- Filling your Director and Chairmen positions
- Completing your Council budget
- How you are going to communicate with your members Determining how you plan to attract new members
- Working with your District Deputy to get Degrees scheduled
- Getting your forms submitted (Form SP7, Form 185, Form 365, State Directory Form, etc.)
We want you to be ready to hit the ground running on July 1. How can the State Officers, RMPCs, DDs, State Directors and State Chairmen help you? We are all here to serve you and help you be successful.
Worthy Grand Knights, if you updated the NC State Directory, you should start getting email blast on a regular basis to help you.
If I can ever serve you in any way, please let me know. I will do my very best to make sure you get the help you need. Let’s have a great year! With your help, we can.
Fraternally yours in Christ,
NC State Deputy
