As the 136th Supreme Convention begins, delegates from Canadian jurisdictions met for the Canadian Association Meeting. Here are four key takeaways:

  1. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson spoke on the need to welcome immigrants to our councils. “We have a moral obligation to invite every eligible Catholic man to join the Knights of Columbus.”
  2. Bob Ennis, director of Canada growth, introduced the Canada Cup, a membership recruitment competition exclusively for Canadian Knights. Jurisdictions will earn points by outperforming the other nine Canadian jurisdictions in membership recruitment during the fraternal year. The winning jurisdiction will be presented with the Canada Cup at next year’s Supreme Convention.
  3. Salt + Light Television has named a new studio in Toronto in honor of K of C founder Father Michael McGivney. Father Thomas Rosica, CEO of the network, expressed his thanks for the Knights’ support, saying, “If Salt + Light is to continue in Canada, it is to continue because of you.”
  4. The supreme knight also placed heavy emphasis on Online Membership. Practicing Catholic men 18 years of age and older can join at kofc.org/joinus.
