from state dept logo

 Sacred Heart Seminary A request of Archbishop Most Rev. Allen H. Vigneron and the Rector of Sacred Heart Major Seminary, former State Chaplain Msgr. Todd Lajiness is being honored by the State Board and the State Board has committed to this endeavor until June 30, 2026. 

We, the State Board of the Michigan Knights of Columbus, have established a Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program for the Sacred Heart Major Seminary, with the scholarship/s distribution awarded from the interest earned annually (probably a maximum of 4%). It is anticipated that we will at a minimum, raise one million dollars for the endowment.

We will be asking for a voluntary six ($6.00) a year per member to fund this endowment. The first request will be attached to the annual dues billing starting in December 2017.

The Financial Secretary can use the linked, MIKofC Endowment Scholarship Fund Flyer and mail with the their 2018 Council Dues notice.  This is our way to help "Support Vocations to the Priesthood"  with your donation.

Checks should be written to Michigan Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc.

(the Michigan Knights of Columbus 501(c)(3) account.)

 Keep the Faith Alive

All funds for the Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program for Sacred Heart Major Seminary will be directed to our charitable account. This would allow for contributions to Sacred Heart Major Seminary for the Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program to be tax deductible.

 

The Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program will be used for seminarians in need of financial support.

 

The RSVP program will continue to be in full support of individual seminarians of your choice to the seminary of your choice. We would also encourage all jurisdictions to create their own tuition endowment seminarian fund.

Keep Christ in Christmas

KCIC poster 17

Our Faith is our gift to share, and what better way to share this Faith than to remind others to Keep Christ in Christmas. As the Christmas Holiday approaches, it is our responsibility to remind others why we celebrate Christmas. What a GREAT gift God has given us in Jesus Christ and we joyfully share this gift with others. This message has been handed down for two thousand years and is as relevant today as ever.

Unfortunately, society has drowned out this message with one of commercialization. Our children are growing up missing the impact of the true message, and Christ is being suppressed. It is our duty as Christians, as Catholics, and as Knights of Columbus to stand firm and hold the line; Keep Christ in Christmas.

Every Card, every Yard Sign, every Billboard, every Poster we distribute helps draw the line and share the message. We owe this to our family, our community, and our future.  Let us all get together and promote this message:   Keep Christ in Christmas!

Attention Worthy Financial Secretaries,

   As the council, annual dues billing season approaches please insure the list of charities which receive support from the State Council is distributed with your billings.

   For those councils that bill manually by hard mail it is easy. Just insert the slip listing the charities provided by the State through your District Deputy into the billing envelope.

   For councils that bill electronically we need you to make an extra step and either mail the slip separately or add as an e-mail attachment to your members.

   A PDF copy of the slip from our website under Resources/Manuals and Documentation/Council Materials is linked here.

   The promotion of the “10” for Charities Program by distribution of the slip is essential for the funding of our charities program.

 Thanks for your cooperation.  Any questions may be directed to:

 William J. Walsh PSD Director “10” for Charity Program - Michigan Charities Fund. 517-629-9273
