Councils and Assemblies are urged to invite your Priest Chaplains, Priest Friars and Parish Priests to attend these events. Councils and Assemblies should ensure that they pay for Priests’ travel, lodging, and convention costs.
Advertising in the State Convention Program Book is a wonderful way to support convention activities; show support for our State Officers, show your solidarity for our Chaplains, Friars, and Priests; or to make a bold statement of support for Pope Francis. We ask all councils and assemblies to place an advertisement in the Program Book, our primary financial support for the convention. As a Knight you can make a more personal statement by purchasing a Patron Advertisement. Advertising Contract and Patron Ad forms are included in this packet. All advertising must be submitted no later than April 16th, 2017.
