Letter from our State Military Outreach Chairman - SFC Michael J. Sullivan “Sully”

Worthy Brothers and Sir Knights,

I write to you for a few reasons. First, and foremost, I would like to personally thank the Knights of Columbus, State Officers, and all those in attendance for a wonderful tribute to the Remember Our Fallen display. It was a great honor to be the Host for our Guest Speakers, Bob Ukena, Dave Ballendier and COL (R)…

Knightline 3-21-16- Membership Updates

Happy Easter to all my Brother Knights!

I often hear from councils that they are going to focus on activating existing members. That’s great! I hope all councils pursue assign a brother to ensure no one becomes “The Guy” who doesn’t come back and really make this part of the monthly activity of the council.

What I don’t understand is thinking that a council can only do one or the other – engage or recruit. I believe these are both / and activities that work hand in hand.…

Knightline 2-18-16 Knights Know Mercy

Knights Know Mercy

Knights all across our state are getting into the swing of Fish Fries and raising charitable dollars while building community in the parishes we serve.  Knights may know Fish well but we know Mercy better – practical works known as corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Lent is a perfect opportunity to focus ourselves and our councils on those works which need some fine tuning in our lives. I know Knights do…

Knightline 2-18-16 Good of the Order

Brother Knights,

I received some rather disgruntled responses back from my push for recruiting more Knights in the last Knightline.  I would like to respond to them.

Is membership only about the numbers?  Yes and no.  Am I pushing for more members just to have more members.  No. I’m pushing for more members for other numbers.  I want more members so we can increase the 173 million dollars in charitable donations and 71.5 million hours donated by all the Knights…

Knightline 2-4-16 Lenten Resolve - Membership

We are fast approaching Lent where we submit to the rigors of fasting, prayer and almsgiving. All too often we approach Lent with a thought of 'giving up' something and we moan and groan.  I propose this Lent we set out to do something better. If we must give up something let us give up timidity! Let us rededicate ourselves to the Rosary! And let us expand almsgiving to include faith examples inspiring others.



Our Supreme Knight has called on us to know what we believe, to profess…

Knightline 2-4-16- It's time to play ball!

Brother Knights,

When it comes to membership, the Iowa Knights of Columbus is like a football team that doesn’t come ready to play in the first half.  We end up going into the locker room behind.  I won’t be like some coaches and scream and yell to try to get you motivated.  We have always been a second half team and I know we will do better the rest of this fraternal year, and we need to.  As of today we are down 106 members from where we started July 1st.   We lost the…

Knightline 12-3-15 Good of the Order

Brothers,

Our Supreme Knight and Board of Directors have come through again.  We will once again have the star council incentive of $4.50 per dues paying member if your council attains star council status!  If your council has 100 dues paying members that can mean a savings of $450.  That’s worth getting excited about.  

So, start working on your recruiting and insurance goals now.  If you don’t have a field agent your general…
