State Deputy Dale A. Weber Message
November 2018

Four months of the fraternal year have been completed.  In six months, we will gather in Manhattan for the State Convention. Your council should have its’ Forms 185 (Report of Officers), 365 (Program Personnel Report Form), and 1728 (Semi-Annual Council Audit) completed and submitted to both the State and Supreme Offices.  Your Council should have scheduled its’ Programming Activities with the new Faith in Action Program, put in place a Membership, Program, Community and Family Directors along with a Retention and E-Member team.  Finally, your Council should have established an Action Plan to both grow and retain its’ members to achieve the “Star Council” award. Now is the time to put your plans into action. Get members signed up and have that degree as soon as possible, don’t put off what can be done now.

E-member Program

Our parishes, communities need strong Catholic men to answer the call to lead with faith, protect our families, serve others and defend our values.

For over one hundred and fifteen years, the Knights of Columbus in Kansas have done exactly that, standing up for the Church, serving the least among us and strengthening our parishes and families. Eligible Catholic men, 18 and older, can now join the Knights of Columbus online in a simple, streamline process.

As a member, you join a worldwide community of nearly two million men, including over 38,000 here in Kansas, who stand together. Men we have a duty to lead, protect, serve and defend. The world needs more committed, unified Catholic men to answer the call.

We must use all tools that are available to us to reach new members in the state of Kansas.

Safe Environment Program

Our Safe Environment Program safeguards children and other vulnerable persons, assures members and their families that we maintain a safe environment, protects members from awkward situations, misunderstandings, and appearances of impropriety, builds trust with arch/dioceses and parishes, and protects the good name of the Knights of Columbus.

Three training modules are required for members serving in youth leader and certain officer roles: “Meet Sam,”addressing the issue of sexual abuse awareness, “Duty to Report,”covering legal reporting obligations, and “Know Your Policies,”a review of Knights of Columbus safe environment policies. We also maintain a youth leader screening process, including background checks, specifically for members who lead Knights of Columbus youth activities.
