Membership Recruitment opportunities and tips

By: William Leveque, Sr. - Mon, Oct 16, 2023 6:49 AM

Brothers, over the weekend we had our first Cross Catholic Outreach food packing. What a great event; the Faith in Action participation level was out of this world! The event was open to all, with many Knights families and parishioners participating. So just like all program events, this too was a recruiting event. I am please to say that we recruited at least 4 new members at the event.
Remember that all of your Parish and Council events are excellent membership growth opportunities!
Coming up on Saturday is the Prep Bowl at Ford Field. Any Brother Knights who want to come down and help us recruit new members are more than welcome to do so.
Thanks for all you do, and please remember to keep Jim and his family in your prayers.

On Saturday October 14th, several Lansing Councils helped purchase coats and provided Brothers and their families an opportunity to assist in distributing coats, hats, and gloves to children throughout Flint and the surrounding communities.


A special thanks to Genesee County Catholic Charities Center for Hope for hosting the event.


During the three-hour morning event, the Knights served 401 families and distributed 200 boys coats and 201 girls coats, along with plenty of gloves and hats.


Thanks to all participating Lansing Diocese Councils. This is one of several drives to be held throughout the Diocese in the next couple months.

To serve our neighbor is to serve Jesus!


Vivat Jesus!
