    My Brother Knights,


    I am so proud of all your efforts in your respective councils for achieving our membership goals for the past six months. As the mid-point of the Fraternal Year comes to a close, I want to thank each and every one of you for a successful membership recruiting effort.  Your efforts are making it possible for Catholic men to have an opportunity to join the greatest fraternal organization in the Catholic Church.  By becoming a Knight of Columbus, you are providing them the opportunity to become better men, husbands, fathers, and Catholics.
