Will you take on the State Deputy’s challenge for Lent?
As the Lenten season approaches, it is an excellent time to evaluate the activities that you take part in. Jesus Christ challenged his disciples to carry on his mission. As the people of God, they were to join together to share in the ministry of service to others and to spread the good news of Jesus with the world. We are being called today to carry on that ministry. How are you being of service to others or growing in your Faith? Your parish and the Knight of Columbus have many ways for you can get involved. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and start doing something that will help others or will help spread the good news of Jesus during this Lenten season. If you do it every day during Lent, it will become something you could do for the rest of the year to answer God’s call for you.
Across North Carolina, we have many Brothers that are sharing to gift of membership with members of their parish. They are helping the members of their parish to come together to help those in need within their community. By sharing the vision of Father McGivney and getting men to join our Order, we can do so much more to help others as Christ to us to do. Do you know someone in your parish that you would enjoy working with to help others? If so, ask him to help you and consider joining.
On January 29, 2018, North Carolina started On-Line Membership. It is a great opportunity for us to grow and get more help for our many programs. We have two new On-Line members already. Their local Council has been asked to work with them. More information on this opportunity is on the NC state website.
As of today, the following Councils are doing great on sharing the gift of membership:
|Council||City||New Brothers YTD||% of Goal|
Our Field Agents have been very busy taking care of our Brothers and their families. So far, this year, we have 86 Councils that have at least one new insurance member. 232 Brothers have taken out KofC insurance for the first time to protect themselves and their families. We now have 12 Councils that have met their insurance quota for the year. Thank your Field Agent for his help and schedule a meeting with him to make sure you and your family is properly protected. That is what our founder Father Michael J. McGivney would have wanted. Please plan to attend the Fraternal Benefit night that your Council will have. You will be amazed and what you will learn.
If I can ever serve you in any way, please let me know. I can be reach at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-366-6405. 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
