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!
