Service Program Director Steve Bolton's July Message

Monday, August 03, 2015

My Brothers,

It is an honor for me to serve you and our State Leadership this year as the State Council’s Service Program Director.

I truly believe that our service program defines us as Catholics, Brother Knights, and Citizens of our Great Nation. When we are serving in our parishes and in our communities, people will see us and associate the Knights of Columbus for the good we are doing for others and that is a great thing for our Order. Always remember that each time we carry out any service program, it is a membership opportunity. As we touch someone’s heart that person becomes a member for life in their hearts and on paper.

Each of our service programs are unique in their own way, therefore we will touch many hearts as we strive to fulfil our goals this Columbian Year. We will have state goals for all our featured programs and we will share all of these with you. We ask you to consider them in your planning for this Columbian Year because together we can do Great things.

State Secretary's August Message by Sonny R. Santa Ines

Friday, July 31, 2015

Brothers, thank you for helping make Columbian Year 2014-2015 a huge success. As we turn the page to Columbian Year 2015-2016, I ask that you continue the enthusiasm going into Columbian Year 2015-2016 to make it another banner year. California has so much potential to propel our Order to even greater heights. Our jurisdiction is well known for its innovative programs. The Membership Blitz, Shining Armor, Wheelchair Sunday just to name a few, originated in California and have been adopted order-wide.

There is a symbiotic relationship between membership and programs. Programs attract and keep members while membership sustains programs. Our Order offers so many programs such as Wheelchair Mission, Special Olympics, Ultrasound Initiative, Support for People with Intellectual Disabilities and much more. I ask that every Brother Knight be involved in at least one program that the council sponsors. You and I joined the Order because we want to be involved. We need to support our Church, community and families. Let us continue to grow in charity, which is the first principle of our Order.

Past State Deputy Message - Tim Carvalho

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

June 2015 - Unfortunately time took over my wish to provide on-going articles in the Knightletter for your information. So I am writing this last one to attempt to make up some lost thoughts. The State Officers and Directors and General Agents have been meeting over the past year and a half to discuss ways to improve the Order in California. We just met again during the State Convention and followed-up at the DD Orientation. We have discussed better recruitment methods, office operations, and other topics. I would like to solicit your thoughts on improving the Order in California. It has to be here, as this is the only place we can make changes. So let me know. ..
