    Knights Address Safety During COVID-19 Pandemic

    3/26/2020

    Updated 6/3/2020

    Consistent with existing communication from the Supreme Council concerning cancellation and postponement of all council and state in-person programs and activities, the updates for specific council and state programs are as follows:

    Silver Rose
    The Silver Rose program is now continuing as scheduled. Live-streamed prayer services remain the recommended option for the program. Councils should continue to abide by any local civil or diocesan guidelines currently in place. Participating councils should contact appropriate district or state leadership, such as the state silver rose chairman, for their jurisdiction’s route details and guidelines.

    Marian Icon
    The Marian Icon program is now continuing as scheduled. Live-streamed prayer services remain the recommended option for the program. Councils should continue to abide by any local civil or diocesan guidelines currently in place. Participating councils should contact appropriate district or state leadership, such as the state Marian icon chairman, for their jurisdiction’s route details and guidelines.

    Free Throw Championship
    We ask that all state competitions be cancelled for this current fraternal year. Consider honoring all district winners through a state certificate that can be found on Officers Online. There will not be any international winners for this fraternal year due to the cancelation of jurisdictional level competitions.

    Essay Contest Winner Announcement
    Current: We have received all submissions and judging will resume once the quarantine has been lifted. Winners will be shared as soon as review and judging has been completed.

    Next Fraternal Year topic: We will announce the new topic for the essay contest at the start of the next fraternal year.

    KCIC Poster Winners Announcement
    2019-2020 International Winners have been announced. Certificates and awards were mailed to directly to winners the first week of May. For a listing of the first place winners, please click here.

    Ultrasound
    Diocesan evaluations and applications are being processed. At this time, checks for ultrasound machines are being sent directly to whom the check has been issued.

    Special Olympics
    Please contact your local, regional, or state Special Olympics organization for updates on cancellations of events and fundraisers. Visit the Special Olympics website for more information, including contact information for your local Special Olympics representative: https://www.specialolympics.org

    Faith in Action Monthly
    Breaking news, reminders, resources and recommendations for Faith in Action programs are now being issued through the bi-weekly Fraternal Leader Advisory. This communication replaces Faith in Action Monthly.

    Check Requests
    Checks are being processed normally for all programs.
