My name is Andy Milam. I am District Deputy for District 4, Church Director for the State of Iowa and member of Council #8592 St. Mary’s, Humboldt, Iowa. I will be posting to the site regularly about catechetics, spirituality and Church events which are upcoming in Iowa. I hope that you will find the posts to be informative, entertaining and educational.
The motto of the Knights of Columbus is “In Service to One, In Service to All.” That really does embody what the Knights are all about. We are charged with serving the State of Iowa, but we are also charged with serving Holy Mother Church. We accomplish this in a number of ways, most visibly through our service efforts as well as our participation in life of the Church, both fiscally and spiritually.
We can’t do this alone though. We need men who are willing to join the Knights and keep our membership growing. It may sound a little strange to hear this, but it is not an overbearing commitment, but it is one of the most important commitments a Catholic layman can make. In no other way can a Catholic layman promote Catholic values and Catholic virtue in a more visible way. Please consider talking to a male parishoner about joining the Knights of Columbus. You can work with your Worthy Grand Knights and they will be able to help you with information.
Over the next weeks and months, I will be posting on the history, the example and the spirituality of the Knights. We are here to serve you and we are here to serve Holy Mother Church. Vivat Jesus!
District Deputy, District 4
