The Cardinal Medeiros Trust Fund was established in 1981 and incorporated into the State Council Charities program. Humberto Cardinal Medeiros was the Bishop of Brownsville, Texas from 1966 until 1970. He served as the Texas State Council Chaplain 1969-1970. He was named the Archbishop of Boston on September 8, 1970 and created a Cardinal on March 5, 1973. The Cardinal Medeiros Fellow Program was started in 1998 to increase the principal in the trust fund. A Cardinal Medeiros Fellow may be ordered for a Knight of Columbus or for a Knight’s wife. Additionally, it may be ordered in memory of a deceased Knight or for a deceased Knight’s wife. With a contribution of $1,000, the honoree is awarded a plaque, a lapel pin and their name is engraved on the Honor Roll which is on display at the State Council Office. The Honor Roll is further displayed each year at the Texas State Council Convention.
