Tom Hegna - Who wants to be a Millionaire

Description
PLEASE PROVIDE ALL INFO ASKED FOR YOUR COUNCIL TO BE COUNTED
In this presentation, Tom will share simple concepts that can help anyone become financially independent. Not only can people become very wealthy using these tips, research shows they will also likely be much happier and even live longer! Most people think you have to make a lot of money to become wealthy, but Tom will show how it is NOT how much you make that counts, it's how much you keep.
Spending less than you earn, investing in appreciating assets, having an emergency fund and protecting your blind side with insurance products can allow nearly everyone to become financially successful. Poor planning, procrastination, credit card debt, divorce, and a failure to understand the Opportunity Costs of purchases doom many people to a life of financial stress and unhappiness. This is a presentation you don't want to miss!

The development of new councils is primarily the responsibility of the district deputy, with the assistance of his state’s new council development chairman and the insurance agent."By order of the Supreme Knight and the Supreme Board of Directors, I have been commissioned to entrust this Charter into your care and custody. I commit the same with full assurance that the judgment and discretion of your Brother Knights of this Council, in placing you in the leadership position, is sufficient guarantee that you will steadfastly adhere to and carry on the principles for which this instrument is granted."

The webinar will discuss:
* What Supreme expects from a New Council
* Where does a New Council get started?

Subject: [KofC-UT-Grand-Knights] Catholic Citizenship Essay
Brothers,
How many members in your Council have children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, or neighbors who have Catholic children? Are any of the children in the 8th – 12th grade?
Children in the 8th – 12th grade are eligible for the Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest. Granted, having a child write an essay that is optional is a tough sell, but several Councils have utilized their parish CCD, parochial schools and youth groups to provide entries. Maybe a child you or your members know, enjoy creative writing. This is a Faith in Action - Community Program. It encourages youth to become citizens grounded in their faith through creative writing and is open to all qualifying Catholic students. This contest encourages today’s youth to be more connected to their community and their faith. Entries are due to the Council by November 30. This year’s essay assignment is:
In an essay of 500- 750 words, explain how young Catholics can evangelize our faith to families and friends who have turned away from religion and encourage them to return to the Church and embrace the sacraments.
“Here on earth, it’s impossible to perform a more meritorious act than visiting Jesus often in the Eucharist. If you took all the good works done by all the humans who have ever lived in all of history and stacked them all up and multiplied them by a million, they wouldn’t equal the merit, the virtue, and the worth of one Mass. The Eucharistic sacrifice is Christ’s infinite merit, infinite value.” – St Teresa of Avila
DATE -- ACTIVITY
11/30/2022 Submitted to Council for Judging
12/18/2022 1st place Council Winners to District
01/01/2023 1st place District winners to State
Councils can determine their own prizes of cash and/or certificates and/or something else. The State will award certificates and a check for $25, $20, or $15 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winning essays in each grade. Remember, this a Faith in Action Community Program.
Maybe your Council could even advertise the contests in your parish bulletin or online website. This contest is open to all the Catholic youth in your parish.
Good luck, Vivat Jesu, and God Bless America!

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!
