Arizona Knights of Columbus Rosary Celebration

Brothers,  

Our Supreme Knight Carl Anderson has sent out the following strong recommendations to protect Brother Knights and others against the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Cancel all personal contact meetings, including business meetings, until further notice.
  • Cancel all planned events, where people would gather, until further notice. 
  • Cancel all travel for Knights of Columbus business until further notice. 

There are many ways to continue council operations without face to face contact.  Here are some suggestions: 

  • Conduct meetings by conference call, Skype, Google Groups or other methods. 
  • Use a webinar service for large meetings like monthly business meetings.
  • Allow member votes by email or text to approve bills and candidate admissions.
  • Use the email feature of Officers Online for member communications.
  • Set up a call tree to contact members and ascertain their wellbeing.
  • Conduct degree ceremonies in homes using the combined Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity video or the First Degree video.
  • Use applications like “Go fund me” to digitally raise funds for causes. 

Additional information is available for members and their families on the websites of the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL and WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. Be aware that the elderly and sick are highly vulnerable to this disease.


Based on these recommendations from Supreme I am issuing the following directives: 

1. All activities planned until Sunday March 15 2020 should continue as planned

2. All recommendations described above will be in effect starting Monday March 16 and will apply on a weekly basis.

3. I will let you know by Friday of each week whether to extend the recommendations for an additional week or go back to normal business.


Our Supreme Knight and Supreme Chaplain, following the example of Pope Francis, is urging all Knights to pray a Novena for Protection in Time of Pandemic during this difficult moment for our country and our world. This special novena consists of the recitation of the prayer below, prepared by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and will begin on Sunday March 15 and conclude on Monday March 23. Please join all of us in prayer.

There are over 17,000 members associated with the Arizona Knights of Columbus. 

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others

 and the feeling that comes with making a difference.   You will make lifelong friends.

Knights are Catholic men, at least 18 years old, who are committed to making their community

 a better place while supporting their church.  Being a Knight is being involved with your community,

 supporting your parish, enhancing your own faith and protecting and enhancing your family life.

Our Lady of Guadalupe (Spanish: Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe), also known as the Virgin of Guadalupe (Spanish: Virgen de Guadalupe), is a Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary associated with a venerated image enshrined within the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. The basilica is the most visited Catholic pilgrimage site in the world, and the world’s third most-visited sacred site. Pope Leo XIII granted the venerated image a Canonical Coronation on October 12, 1895.
