Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish

2017 Convention Recap

The State Convention was held on April 7-9, 2017 in historic Dubuque, IA. We had over 300 brother Knights along with their families, friends, and members of the greater community descend on Dubuque for a weekend full of fun, renewal, and relaxation.

Thank you to Mike and Jan DeMoully, along with their Host Convention Committee and the 200-plus volunteers who ensured a wonderful experience!
