  4. 4. pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API I just came from participating in a special training seminar put on by the Supreme Board of Directors in Dallas, Texas. During the seminar I was informed of a new program for Knights of Columbus who deal with the Youth groups and activities of the order. This new program will provide training and certification for all adult members who work with children. The new program will be introduced this coming fraternal year and is expected to provide an additional level of security to the programs already in place by Catholic Dioceses. This new program will not replace anything offered by the diocese but will be an added service meant to enhance the level of training of individuals. As we begin the new fraternal year one of the best things that we can do as a council is to create a business plan for the year with the goal of achieving the “Star Council Recognition”. The Star, Double Star or Triple Star recognition says to the parish community in which the council belongs that we are doing our job fully and well, that we are contributing to the values and precepts of the Church and contributing to the good of the community in which we are located. I hope that we will consider this program as part of our goals for the 2014-2015 Fraternal Year. We welcome the new members just recently joining our council and look forward to their participation in the many programs and services offered by the Knights of Columbus. Remember that purchasing one of our insurance products during your first year of membership (even a $100 Annuity) qualifies you as an “Insurance Member” and helps the council towards achieving the McGivney Award which is part of the requirements for Star Council. Associate members in the order longer than one year can also take advantage of many low cost financial products which then qualify them for Insurance Member status.

While many commercial life insurance companies have gotten out of the long-term care business, the Knights of Columbus considers LTC a very important piece of the family protection puzzle. The Order has been actively offering our members this product for nearly 15 years without a premium increase on current policyholders. Members who wisely purchased an LTC plan from the Knights in 2000 are still paying the same premiums today. Even better, our LTC coverage is backed by the full strength of the Order, which remains rooted in our strong Catholic values. Talk about stability when it counts. If we have not spoken about your need for LTC coverage in your family portfolio, please take some time out of your schedule to meet with me. Remember, long-term care policies are the Baptist. His birth was miraculous. That was evidenced by his parents who were in an advanced age at the time of his conception. His father, Zechariah was struck mute when he demanded a sign from the angel who informed him at the Temple that his wife, Elizabeth, would have a child in the coming year. And, when he signed the name John for his newborn son, he regained his speech. In the Gospel of Luke for this celebration it says, "For surely the hand of the Lord was with him." Salvation History bears this out as the life of John the Baptist unfolds. People even thought that he was the promised Savior. However, he denied that, but he did point to Jesus as the Promised Savior on the bank of the Jordan River with the words, "Behold the lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world." His exhorted the people to repent from the sins and believe in the Good News. His motto was that he may decrease and Jesus may increase.
