Subject: Re: Drivers for National Championship??
Importance: High
Hi Dave,
We are operating a courtesy pool program for the team and the Special Guests.  Those guests will be able to request rides to various locations throughout the Valley.  We are requesting help at the Westin Kierland and we will have what I refer to as an "air-traffic control" person at the hotel.  We would stage up to 15-20 drivers per shift at the hotel and the air traffic control person will field the requests from the team and tell the drivers when and where they are picking someone up or dropping them off.  We have the cars on loan from a local dealer- we just need the drivers!!!  That is where I am hoping you guys can come in.    I would put you all at the Westin Kierland, which is the Cotton Bowl team hotel.  The shifts are as follow and your people can work as many as possible but there is no minimum required.  I can use all the help I can get though.  We will have snacks and beverages in the hotel meeting room and will order in food at lunch and dinner and there will likely be a TV in the room but we recommend that they bring reading material as well as I think there will be downtime in between pickups.
Here are the shifts we are looking to fill.  
Friday, January 8 6PM-midnight
Saturday, January 9 7AM-noon
Saturday, January 9 Noon-6PM

November 2015 State Deputy's Message

Sent: Saturday, November 7, 2015 9:20 PM
Subject: [Corpus Christi 10062 Mail] November 2015 State Deputy's Message

Monthly message from State Deputy
November 1, 2015
The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Catholic Church commemorates all her faithful children who have departed from this life, but have not yet attained the joys of heaven. St. Paul warns us that we must not be ignorant concerning the dead, nor sorrowful, "even as others who have no hope ... For the Lord Himself shall come down from heaven ... and the dead who are in Christ shall rise.
The Church has always taught us to pray for those who have gone into eternity. Even in the Old Testament prayers and alms were offered for the souls of the dead by those who thought "well and religiously concerning the resurrection." It was believed that "they who had fallen asleep with godliness had great grace laid up for them" and that "it is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins." We know that a defiled soul cannot enter into heaven. Excerpted from Liturgical Meditations, The Sisters of St. Dominic.
We are very excited to announce that the Arizona State Council will be conducting workshops throughout the state in November 2015, with the theme of, "Find Us Ready to Welcome Our Brothers: Our Pathway to Fraternity". These meetings will be centrally based on how to host a First Degree, Admissions Degree, and the proper way to conduct a council business meeting. All Brother Knights are invited to attend a workshop. They are designed to help you to conduct the First Degree, Admissions Degree ceremony, a council business meeting, and earn the Star Council Award, plus answer your questions on the requirements to earn the award. The same agenda and material will be discussed at each of the workshops. You only need to attend one workshop. We look forward to seeing many Brother Knights at these important workshops.
·         Monday November 9: East Valley (Council 3121 in Chandler) 7:00 to 9:00 PM
·         Tuesday November 10: West Valley (Council 3855 in Glendale) 7:00 to 9:00 PM
·         Wednesday November 11: Tucson (Council 1200 in Tucson) 7:00 to 9:00 PM
·         Thursday November 12: North Valley (Council 12449, St. Patrick's in Scottsdale) 7:00 to 9:00 PM
The Arizona Knights of Columbus 2015-2016 fraternal year's theme is "Find Us Ready Lord". This year's theme deals with the Destiny of Man and how we prepare ourselves for our final reward and attain the joys of heaven. We can prepare with Service, Prayer, Charity, Unity, Fraternity, & Patriotism.  We need to build our Order stronger so together we can work to combat the evil lurking in our world today. Please pray the Prayer of St. Michael the Archangel at the end of every meeting and gathering. Satan is destroying our society and Church while working on every family, man, woman, and child to not follow the teachings of our Catholic Church. We must keep our councils and assemblies strong to fight this battle and defend everything we know as good. Please pray that St. Michael will protect us and our Lord will guide us so we will remain victorious and continue to build our Church with service and faith.
Vivat Jesus!

Once again, the Arizona State Council and "40 Days for Life" are joining forces to conduct a "Knight Shift". Please see the attached flyer. Please share this message at your District, Council, and Assembly Meetings.
All Brother Knights and their families are invited to attend and pray lifesaving Rosaries for the unborn. This is a very important event showing our Unity in the battle for life, against the evil of abortion. Please search in your heart to sign up for a 2 hour session to pray the Rosary throughout the night of October 16-17, 2015. My wife Teresa and I will be there praying. Please join us. We promised to pray the Rosary often. Here is an excellent opportunity to do so to help lives. Please use the "Sign Up Genius" link below to sign up. If a time slot is full, please consider signing up for a different slot. We need them all filled. If they are all filled, please join us when you can. The more Prayer Warriors the better!

To Sign up for the Knight Shift:
Please contact Arizona Knights of Columbus State Chairman Mike Rimbey for any questions or concerns at or Cell: 602.510.7053
Lisa Blevins, Tempe Campaign Director, 40 Days for Life stated;
"The Knight Shift at a "40 Days for Life" Vigil has a special character all its own. The abortion center is usually closed and the surrounding area is quieter; perfect conditions for silent, prayerful reflection on the evil that we seek God's intervention to end.
Thank you for your witness. Thanks to all the men on the Knight Shift at "40 Days for Life" Vigil this Fall — and special thanks to the Knights of Columbus organization, which proclaims itself "uncompromisingly pro-life," and for listing "40 Days for Life" as a recommended pro-life link on its Supreme web site."
