Worthy Grand Knights,

    Come one, come all!  The South Carolina Knights of Columbus/Diocese of Charleston is providing all Catholic men an opportunity for personal growth and this program is a perfect fit for your Faith in Action “Faith” program, Spiritual Reflection.  The South Carolina Catholic Men’s Conference is just around the corner, March 2nd, and it will be held in Columbia, at Cardinal Newman High School, 2945 Alpine Rd.  Arrival time is 7:30 a.m.  Knights can save $20 off the registration price of $50 by pre-registering on line and identifying themselves as a Knight of Columbus.  This is a full day event, breakfast and lunch provided and will conclude at 4 p.m.  Ladies are invited for a shortened gathering on Friday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m.  They will receive two dynamic talks by our special speakers and will drive home very glad that they participated.  More details provided at the bottom of this February Posting.  Look below.

    Action Requested:

        1.  Get the word out to your Knights immediately so they can make a commitment to attend.  Strive for your entire Council to attend!    Register here:

        2.  Blast this information to your Council Brothers via email with the above attachments so they understand the full impact of what we are offering them.

        3.  Please get the word out to your entire Parish.  Ask your pastor to endorse it and place the Conference Handout and Flyer in the bulletin as inserts.  Also, place this information in your parish website.  Please have this announced from the pulpit at all Sunday Masses.

        4.  Make this Faith in Action project one of your strongest efforts.  The Faith in Action Guidebook explains attendance requirements like this:  "Councils can attend religious retreats and days of reflection organized by other groups. However, if they are attending a reflection and not planning it themselves, council attendance should be significant with at least 10 percent of the council or a minimum of 10 members participating."
