As we are halfway through the Columbian Year, I ask, as do all the State Officers, to re-invigorate yourselves and Councils and take to heart the Supreme goal of “1 Member per Council per Month.” Our Councils are the life of the Order and we need to keep them current and part of the life of the Church and Community. We need to hear and participate in the new ideas and changes that new members bring to us. We cannot live as an Order without the change that comes from healthy growth and living. So please go out and concentrate on 1 New Member per Month.
The District Deputies will be coming back from their Mid-Year meeting with some more ideas and projects that Supreme wants to focus on. Please take them to heart and work them as these programs deal with the “Year of Faith” theme that the Pope has made a theme for this Church year. We need to make this year a “Catholic” year by partaking in the events held by our parishes and dioceses. Again we need to keep ourselves founded in that principle of being wholly Catholic in all that we do.
