New Year message from the Director

January 5, 2015

Brother Knights,

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2015. May you enjoy a happy and healthy new year.  Thought the year, may you grow in your faith and in your relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, to serve him and our neighbour in need. The Knights of Columbus can provide through our fraternity of Catholic men and
Fr. Michael McGivney’s vision and opportunity for each and all of us to realize all these hopes. Best wishes!

In a few short weeks our Association holds its Annual Diocesan Association Meeting on Saturday January 17 at Regiopolis Notre-Dame Catholic High School, 130 Russell St., Kingston. Knight’s from all across our archdiocese will meet, network, fraternalise with one another. Come and hear the recent activates and upcoming events in your association. Hear Archbishop O’Brien’s personal message to all members in the Archdiocese of Kingston, Hear special reports from several directors, districts, youth activity chairman and more. Nominate and elect the officers to lead the association for the coming fraternal year.  And enjoy a fine lunch and take the opportunity to network with and know other members, members from other councils, members who perhaps you do not often get an opportunity to talk with.

Registration begins at 8:45 am and the meeting starts at 9:30 am. A fine lunch (free) at noon is followed by some and more reports and business. The meeting should be over at 2pm. And you return home.

Every council and assembly should be represented. In fact all member knights are welcome. Tell you Grand Knight you wish to go, better yet why not invite to drive him and some brother knights too.

Brothers,  I’d love to see many of you again and meet some more knights that  I have not gotten to know. Look me up and say hello.


William Coppens, Diocesan Director
Diocesan Association of the Archdiocese of Kingston
