   • College Council Tips
       • District Deputies should identify prospects for
         College Councils as they know the area best.
       • As District Deputy, continue to nurture existing
         College Councils, as the turnover is 100% every
         4-6 years.
       • College Council Knights are our future leaders.
       • When a College Knight turns 68, that means 50
         potential years of service.

   True cost of a K of C License plate = $8.00
           (about the cost of a 6 pack of Shiner Bock!)

   Actual payment is $30.00
           However…
   $22.00 goes directly to Infirmed Priests Fund
   Good News: We have raised $40,000 since 2004

   Bad News: Only 700 on the road in Texas…
                      yet we have 89,392 members!!!

   6. Membership in the K of C and Masons
   “Given the clear teaching of the Church in this matter, it is evident
   that members of Masonic associations do not meet the central
   requirement for membership in our Order … being a practical
   Catholic in union with the Holy See. Candidates for membership
   in the Knights of Columbus must resign their membership in
   Masonic associations before gaining admission to our Order.
   Should there be an existing member of the Knights who also holds
   membership in a Masonic order, he likewise must resign his

   standing as a member of the Order.”

   • Fr. McGivney’s vision: -- “…to have an ACTIVE
     Knights of Columbus presence in every
     parish”.
   • That means -- establish a Council or Round
     Table.
   • Reasons for a Round Table:
        – Some parishes or missions that are too small to
          fully support a council.
        – There are two different cultures within one parish.
        – Assist the parish or mission Priest.
        – Attract new members.

   • Councils that collect dues from their members have a
     legal obligation to remit those funds to the State
     ($8.00) and Supreme ($4.50) for their Per Capita,
     Catholic Advertising and Supplies.
        – NOTE - there is no per capita charge for Honorary Life
          Members

   • To AVOID raising State Per Capita:
        – Participate and Promote the Football Sweepstakes to
          prevent an increase in the State Per Capita assessment.
            • The funds raised so far is about $2 per member.
