Spanish-speaking councils of the Knights of Columbus can be found in the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Canada, Cuba, Panama, and Guatemala. The Order is making every effort to bring the benefits of membership to every eligible Spanish-speaking Catholic gentleman through our Operation Hispanic Outreach and New Council Development programs. Our Hispanic Council Development Chairman is ready to assist forming a New Council, Round Table or in the reactivation of Spanish speaking councils.


Follow these few helpful tips:
Hold monthly meetings with new members and transfers with updates on the progress and things that still need to be done.
DO NOT park new members in an existing Council. Keep new members active at business and planning meetings. 
REMEMBER: Get as much done as you can before Advent and Lent. Not much happens during these two seasons.
For additional or more detailed information, please refer to the New Council Development Guidelines as published by the Supreme Office and the checklist found in this Star Guide.
