Brothers,

It is hard to believe that it is November already. I barely remember October and what my kids were for Halloween. Now I am seeing Christmas ads and decorations. Most of our councils have gotten off to a great start and are getting into the swing of things. I would like to thank all those councils and chapters that participated in the Coats for Kids drive. Normally this event takes place on Black Friday, but we know that it can get cold in Colorado as early as September, therefore, we conducted multiple drives across the state in mid-September and October. This was a fantastic drive which provided more than 900 coats to cold children. Now we are turning our attention to the many Thanksgivings Basket Drives. These service programs are important, especially today when people have not fully returned to work. Many families are struggling to make ends meet. Our charity is needed now more than ever.

As we prepare for Advent it is appropriate to take some extra time to form ourselves in prayer. Prayer is an essential part of life. How often do you spend time in prayer? I am sure that all of you pray before meals, or at Mass on Sunday. Do you schedule time to pray each day? I know that we all live busy lives, but that is why we must take time to pray each day. We should build a structured prayer life. There are many different choices and ways to pray. A few would be a Morning Offering, or Scripture Reading, Marian Prayer, Examen, or just a Silent Meditation. I suggest you create a plan to pray at least three times every day. The more you do this, the easier it will become.

I would like to invite all members to attend the Mid-Year Meeting on December 11 and 12th. You can sign up for the meeting on the state website or this link 2021 Colorado Knights of Columbus Mid-Year Meeting Registration. I suggest you read John Ch 6, vs 22-59 ahead of time. We will be discussing this as well as so many other wonderful initiatives and methods to grow the order.

Vivat Jesus
