CULTURE OF LIFE By Jeff Patino, Culture of Life Chairman

Friday, July 26, 2013

This Columbian year, as in years past, we will be giving our support to the Northern California West Coast Walk for Life January 25th 2014, under the continued guidance of committeeman Steve Hagerty . We have a new Youth /Family rally committeeman Brother Edward Dantes Jr. to assist our efforts to re-establish this rally witch takes place at the end of the walk. The Southern California’s Christianservice4life is coming this October 9th to the Home Depot Center. The new committeeman for this event will be Brother Gary Ganibi. Our State Deputy has requested that we renew our focus on the Supreme Ultra Sound Initiative. To do this we will connect with each of the chapter Culture of Life committeemen, as well as all of the Council Culture of Life representatives. We will be reemphasizing the details and requirements that need to be met in order to reach the goal of receiving the matching funds from Supreme.

The goal for the State Culture of Life program will be for chapters to create a funding pool, and make the actual ultra sound equipment purchase. All of the councils in the chapter will help to fund raise. .It is our hope that working together in concert we will be able to place a greater number of these life saving machines in many crisis pregnancy centers throughout California. We will be offering the ultrasound calendars again this year. Council’s may purchase 1 case of 50 as a minimum order $175.00 (Knights of Columbus price.) Purchase 2 cases for $350.00shipping included, your council will raise a $645.00in donation profit, just by selling 100 calendars. Each calendar retails for $9.95 (Calendars may be purchased online with a special Knights of Columbus code.)

WORDS FROM THE VOCATIONS CHAIRMAN SK Rene Perez, GK, California State Vocations Chairman

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

“Do not be afraid”, these simple words spoken time and time again by Pope John Paul II became a part of my thoughts and everyday life and took on a special meaning as I began to do the work of the Knights of Columbus and became Vocations North Chairman. It continues to motivate me as I meet the challenges ahead and replace John Bertrand as State Vocations Chair.

Without question John has done an outstanding job as our State Chairman and has set a fine example of Knights leadership throughout his years as Vocation Chair with great programs to match. At our State Convention in San Diego this past May I had an opportunity to talk with many of you about all of the great work that your Council’s and Chapters are doing to promote Vocations and utilizing the programs that were set forth. With that in mind, one of my objectives is to not hinder those programs that have been successful but only enhance them with fresh creative approaches custom to every councils needs and to begin new programs that will continue to help grow Vocations into the 21st century. I am not looking to reinvent the wheel, only make improvements where possible. I truly believe that California has set the tone for some of best Vocations programs throughout the order and will continue to do so for years to come.
