How can we accomplish anything unless people know what we are trying to do?
As Matthew 5:16 says; Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. Thus, it is important that we as Brother Knights offer encouragement to Catholics to be involved on many different levels. In addition, to make contact with potential members, we must publicize our good deeds in all the places where eligible Catholic men and their families gather, through multiple formats.

Knight Life Radio
The Knight Life is the Iowa Knights of Columbus weekly radio show that highlights the men and the work of the Knights of Columbus in the dioceses of Iowa and the surrounding region. Our goal is to inform all of the Knights' activities as a family friendly Catholic fraternity; and to inspire listeners with the work of individual Brother Knights, Councils, and Assemblies across the region.
To submit story ideas or report on council activities, post the story and pictures on your "News Update" section of your Knights of Columbus profile. Then notify Jason Follett with a message about your activity and report.
In your summary, briefly describe the Council, Assembly, or Squires project. What took place? Where did it occur? When was the project held? How much money was raised? How many hours of time were volunteered? Who was the beneficiary of the project? Give the full name of the Council, Assembly, or Circle. Make sure all places and organizations are identified by their full and proper names and location.
With regards to photos, action photos are best. Illustrate the program. Try to stay away from people lined up in rows.
Finally, please provide all possible contact information so follow-ups, interviews, etc. can be made.
