Looking to do more good with more hands the Iowa State Council is pleased to announce the formation of a new team in the upcoming Plane Pull for SOIowa: the White-Collar Crew.

To be made up of priests and religious this team will be Pulling for Christ and need our support. Each team member must raise a minimum of $50. Your state council officers are challenging councils to create their own teams. If you cannot be on a team or participate in the pull yourself, consider supporting one of the White Collar Crew with your prayers and a $50 or more sponsorship? Visit the link below to donate or to join the team.

White Collar Crew SOIowa Page

White Collar Crew - Pulling for Christ (IA KofC) was conceived May 2nd during a meeting of the Iowa Knights of Columbus State Officers and Chaplains while gathered at State Convention.

The team will be composed of Priests and Religious - not necessarily from the Des Moines Diocese but from where ever willing.

Local Knights of Columbus are asked to support their chaplain by a pledge or donation to this worthy cause to aid Special Olympics Iowa.

Father Enrique Garcia, Council 13750 in Conception, MO (recently incardinated in the Diocese of Des Moines) will be joining the White Collar Crew. 

Father Chris Reising, Council 14267 in Des Moines will be sponsored by his home council.

Other Hispanic priests waiting for confirmation based on their schedule availability are Father Juan Antonio Hernandez (Council 12482 in Des Moines), Father Fabian Moncada (Council 9632 West Des Moines) and Father Reynaldo Hernandez (also from 14267 in  Des Moines).  All these have secured funds to join the White Collar Crew, but are pending schedule verification.
