Call for State Convention Delegates

As a reminder, the state convention is quickly approaching.  Our council should send 2 voting delegates.  As Grand Knight, Michael Majeres will be the first delegate.

The by-laws of our Order provide for the representation of delegates from councils in good standing to our State Convention. Specifically, the referenced by-law’ is as follows

Chapter II Sec. 12(a) – State Councils shall consist of the Grand Knight and a Past Grand Knight, actually residing in the state or jurisdiction, from each subordinate council in good standing…………… If there be more than one Past Grand Knight, the council shall elect the one to represent it in the State Convention. A council having no past Grand Knight may elect any of its Third Degree members in good standing in lieu thereof as a representative of said council in the State Council. Each subordinate council shall elect alternates for representatives in the State Council.

If there is a Past Grand Knight who wishes to attend, they should let the Grand Knight (KofC9597.gk@gmail.com) know before March 8th.  3rd Degree Knights should also inform the Grand Knight if they wish to be considered as alternates, in case no PGK is available.  If there are multiple candidates, we will schedule a special meeting on March 12th to elect delegates.

Important Message from Colorado Catholic Conference

ccc

House Bill 1135 seeks to legalize physician assisted suicide.  A law allowing assisted suicide would demean the lives of vulnerable patients and expose them to exploitation by those who feel they are better off dead. Such a policy would corrupt the medical profession, whose ethical code calls on physicians to serve life and never to kill.  The voiceless or marginalized in our society – the poor, the frail elderly, and racial minorities would be the first to feel pressure to die.

The Colorado Catholic Conference OPPOSES this legislation.

This bill will be heard in the House Public Health Care & Human Services Committee on Friday, February 6, Upon Adjournment, in House Committee room 271.

Please contact you Representative and the members of the Public Health Care & Human Services Committee and ask them to OPPOSE  House Bill 1135 which would legalize physician assisted suicide in Colorado.
