District Deputy’s Report

June 2017

I hope my Brother Knights within District 79 had a great Father’s Day weekend.   Soon it will be the 4th of July.   Congratulations to our new State Deputy Elect Romeo D. Quevedo.

We will soon be holding our combined Officers’ Installation of Councils 5300 and 1684 at Serra Hall on June 24th at 9:00 AM.

At the State Convention in May, a First Admissions Degree was held.   27 new Brother Knights received their First Degree.  The degree was performed by Holy Cross Council 9969 (Moorpark -WCP Michael Ohler’s home council)

In June, I had the honor of distributing scholarships for Councils 5300 and 1684 with WGK Mark Wiestock to underclassmen and women at Bishop Diego High School.   The purpose of the scholarships from both councils is to help deserving students that can’t afford tuition to attend Bishop.

A couple of reminders from Supreme and State:

1)      Complete the Semiannual Council Audit (#1295) by August 15th

2)      Councils are encouraged to promote the new Family Rosary Program, which is similar to the 5th Sunday Rosary Program.   The new program allows councils

 to schedule parish rosary events on any day of the week. The Rosary Program falls under the Building the Domestic Church Program. 

3)      Supreme is also encouraging councils to plan K of C Family Week events.  These events can be found on Supreme Council’s website:


4)      If your Councils are participating in the Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contests or the Substance Abuse Poster Programs, now is the time to order those kits for next year.

5)      The State Officers’ Installation will take place on July 8th at Our Lady of Mercy Church in Daly City, CA.  Information has been posted on the State Website
