Knights of Columbus Launch Online Recruiting Site for Texas

The world’s largest Catholic family fraternal organization has begun a new initiative to recruit Catholic men to join its ranks using a new online site at to reach more prospects.   Combined with a new social media based outreach, the site focuses on four of the essential concerns of today’s Catholic men. 

Leading with Faith - highlights the resources available to members to encourage their spiritual development. 
Protecting your Family - offers options for considering long-term financial planning and critical protections for our loved ones. 
Serving Others - shows how members today make a real and lasting impact through our charitable service to address many of our communities in need.
Defending your Values – demonstrates the power of our voices united to stand up for faith-based principles that are under challenge in our society and culture.     

“This does not replace the personal invitation that members currently use to expand our Order’s impact,” says Douglas Oldmixon, State Deputy for the Knights in Texas. “It allows us to reach men we’ve not yet invited or who are in areas where we don’t yet have a strong presence.”         

To learn more about the Knights of Columbus, go online to or to see how we make a difference in our Church and communities today.

Star Council Awards Incentive

See Flyer on the right!

Mar 10, 2018
March Star Tracker Available

Attached is the Star Tracker Report.  There are several councils that have already made their Membership and/or Insurance goals, and have submitted the 365 and 1728.  This means they are on track to make Star Council.  

The next major report to Supreme is the SP7 - Columbian Award Application.  All Active councils should be submitting this form - whether you will qualify for Star Council or not.  I believe every council can qualify for the Columbian Award and therefore should submit the report.  Remember that this report requires at least 4 activities from the Building the Domestic Church program.  Although this report is due at the end of June, you can submit it sooner.  I recommend submitting it in April and May.  This gives us time to make any corrections if there are any errors.  

For those councils who submitted an entry for the State Program Award, a requirement for Lone Star Award for Excellence with Distinction, those will be reflected on the April tracker report.  Also, you can start submitting your proof that you submitted the 990 form to the IRS.

There is still time to make your goals and become a Star Council.  The Star Council Awards Team will be introducing a new incentive later this week.  A chance for your council to win some money by making Star Council.

As always, if you have any problems opening the attachment or any corrections that need to be address, please contact me.

Keep up the good work.

Free Throw Winners

*The winners are listed by council and diocese (or archdiocese), not city.  We had top three place winners from nine dioceses.  Special thanks to the Knights from San Antonio, led by free throw chairman Michael Rademacher, for their hard work registering all of the contestants; and to the Diocesan Deputies and other members of the state family for volunteering as score keepers and rebounders.  The biggest thanks goes to the parents for driving from across the state to bring their kids for our contest.  We thoroughly enjoy this event.
