Dear Fraternal Leader,

I am happy to announce the upcoming release of a COVID Recovery Program (CRP) for the Order. This simple program will help councils resume fraternal operations and support the recovery of their parishes. The program provides a flexible framework that can be adapted to pandemic circumstances in your jurisdiction.

Please join us Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 8:00 PM EDT for a special fraternal training webinar that will explain this program and highlight the resources available for your success.

It is time to move forward from the ordeal of the past year. This program will help your council and parish emerge from the pandemic as strongly as possible.
Fraternally,

XXMS Walk 2021
04-24-2021   All Day Event

Brother Knights,
The MS walk for this year is April 24, 2021.
It will be virtual again following covid-19 restrictions.
You can register and donate just search under teams and type in Utah Knights of Columbus or my name Tim Lozano.
If possible I would like to have all councils participate with a $25 donation I understand though we really need to choose what fundraising events we contribute to this year and if you can only participate that would be great as well.
If you have live or zoom meetings you would like me to attend let me know.
If you invite me to a live meeting maybe I can give a short little motivation or words of encouragement to the men attending the council meeting.
So just type in walk ms on your web browser and select walk ms salt lake city 2021.
Thanks to all the councils and individuals who participated last year!
Have a great day!
Any questions please let me know.
Tim Lozano
State Community Director

What are the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Please contact us for more information about becoming a Knight!
