Membership - Handling Objections

Membership - Handling Objections

I'm too busy to join


How often have you asked someone to join and their response to you is... "I'm too busy". Here are some suggested responses you can give to overcome this obstacle.


  • 24 Hour Knight - Supreme has a great pamphlet you can order (for free) that shows men they only need to spend 24 hours a year on Knights activities. Everyone has 24 hours.
  • There's no additional time required - Many men in the parish already donate a significant amount of their time to church activities. Church Choir, usher, Eucharistic Minister, etc... Just become a member (to show your support) and just keep doing the things you're already doing. Nothing more.
  • E-membership - The Knights created a type of membership for people like you. Just become an e-member (for free) to show you support the Catholic Church. You don't need to do more. Then, in the future, if your situation changes, you can volunteer and be more engaged.
  • The Knights should complement your life, not complicate it. Get involved only if and only when you have time. If you're busy. That's OK. Just being a member is helpful.
  • Have a voice - The knights have a voice in Congress on many issues impacting our lives. As a member, you share in strong Catholic values and we can represent you.

Silver Rose program explained by our State Faith Director

By: Robert Bagley - Tue, Aug 29, 2023 7:14 AM

Silver Rose


So many have asked “What is the Silver Rose?” So here is some info!

Silver Rose


Share the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe and promote respect for life by participating in this meaningful pilgrimage. The Silver Rose program demonstrates the unity between Knights of Columbus in Canada, the United States and Mexico, through a series of prayer services promoting the dignity of all human life and honoring Our Lady.




Each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by Knights of Columbus councils along routes from Canada to Mexico. Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners and community members to pray for respect for life, for the spiritual renewal of each nation, and for the advancement of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The WE ARE ONE Committee 2023 Golf Outing is a great success!

By: Ken Warzybok - Mon, Aug 28, 2023 7:46 AM

1On August 27th, the We Are One committee hosted their second annual golf outing. It was a gorgeous day at Timberwood Golf Course in Ray, Michigan, and everyone had a great time!


3During the event, we had the pleasure of honoring two remarkable individuals. Patricia Winkle and Brother Knight Major Kelly (still helping out at an impressive 98 years young) were both bestowed with the title of Honorary Members of the We Are One Committee. It was a well-deserved recognition for their outstanding contributions and dedication.


As the sun set on this memorable day, we couldn't help but reflect on the success of the event. The We Are One committee is grateful for the unwavering support of everyone involved, and we look forward to seeing you all at the Halloween party on October 27th at Zuccarro's!

KC Lions Day 2023

By: Michael A. Kozakiewicz - Thu, Aug 24, 2023 6:45 AM

Those that know me know that I'm a die-hard Detroit Lions fan. I know I drink the Kool-Aid every year. But last year it was more of a Honolulu blue and silver cocktail. I've been a season ticket holder since 2011 and last season at every game the atmosphere at Ford Field was amazing. I definitely look forward to more of it this year.

With that being said, we have organized a Knights of Columbus Fraternal Day at Ford Field.  It will be the game on September 24, 2023, Detroit Lions versus Atlanta Falcons. 

Tickets are $100.00 each, click HERE for the order form.

Checks made out to Michigan State Council. Order form and checks come to me directly. Please do not send to the state office. Any questions please contact me.
