Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish

The "travel gavel" is presented to a Council in northeast Iowa for best membership showing at meetings with other Councils. Travel Gavel points are added up over the fraternal year, and the northeast Iowa Council with the most points earns the Travel Gavel. Attending Travel Gavel meetings is a way to learn what other Councils are doing, and winning the Travel Gavel is a source of pride for the Council. Attending Travel Gavel meetings is a wonderful manifestation of Christian unity and fraternity, and the food is usually quite good.

Schedule of travel gavel meetings for the 2017-2018 fraternal year:

January: Waukon
February: Decorah
March: MononaOssian
April: Lansing

Click here for a picture of the Travel Gavel.

For a travel gavel meeting, members of the councils in the district go to that particular meeting in addition to their own council’s regular monthly meeting. For example, if the January travel gavel meeting is in Waukon, members of the other four councils in the district can travel to Waukon, attend the meeting, and earn points toward the winning of the travel gavel; they should also attend their own council's meeting.
