Texas is back in the Circle of Honor! Give yourself a pat on the back. Good Job! Okay, enough celebrating, that was last year. Now let us roll up our sleeves and get back to work. This year our membership goal is set at 4,600 new members. We need to hit the ground running, for us to go back-to back, we need each council active in recruiting.
There will be many jurisdictions looking to be #1 in Division 1. Last year we saw how Ontario did not give up. They were there up until the last day in recruiting. We need to make sure TEXAS ends up #1.
“Be Not Afraid”: This iconic message is found throughout the Scriptures and was emphasized by St. John Paul II as he began his papacy, leading our Church into a new millennium. It is time for the Knights of Columbus to lead once again.
The State of Texas is home to over 800 councils. Knights serve in almost every parish of our great state, in councils, online membership, assemblies, military councils, and college councils.
Remember, we recruit new members to make a difference in our community, in our Church, and in the lives of the men who become Knights. We are called upon to invite every Catholic gentleman and their families the opportunity to join our Order. JUST ASK HIM!
District Deputies, we are asking for your help in keeping your councils motivated, active and accountable for their goals. You are a vital part to them achieving their goals. Unleash your potential! With everyone working together as a team, there is no question that Texas will reach our membership goals this fraternal year.
So, let us get back to the business at hand and rekindle that fire and grow this order.
Let's get it done. Back to Basics, No Excuses.
