Worthy Brother Knights, 

There have been a few emails that have lead to some confusion about the State Awards.  Please use this email for clarification on all issues.  



For the Faith, Community, Family, and Life awards please use the attached form and the supporting information.


For the Knight, Priest and Family of the year, the format would be to write up why they are being nominated and send it to the appropriate chairman.

Worthy District Deputies and STATE CHAIRMAN:

FYI, I sent out a letter to all GRAND KNIGHTS/COUNCILS in the State, as you know our annual on-site 2020 State Convention has been cancelled. 

We are currently working with our Supreme office to 
organize our virtual convention. It will be conducted by phone with 
only voting delegates, i.e. State Officers and 2-delegates per 
Council.  Thus, my letter and the request for each Council to provide delegate information. The minutes and reports from the convention will be made available to all. As stated in my letter, it is limited to only the aforementioned delegate.  Thanks for your understanding and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 


DDs and Brothers, I would appreciate your assistance in making sure your Council and all in your District respond.


Hope you are all doing well and Staying safe,  Vivat Jesus, Frank Koenig, WV-State Secretary

Brother Knights

Thanks for your voice. Here is a link to the audio recordings that you participated in at the WV State Convention.

Station ids and prayers are currently being periodically broadcast on LoL Radio stations and on the LoL Radio stream 

as well as on affiliate WHMG LPFM 98.7 in Purgitsville.

In addition, your voice recordings of "Why Are You A Knight of Columbus" will be included in a series to be on-the-air in the future. 

LoL Radio is also looking for other Brother Knights to audio record for the series as well. I'm sure this will assist with KofC recruitment efforts.

This series will also be made available to other Catholic radio affiliates throughout WV.

And if you would want an announcement of any of your Council events to be broadcast, just email the details to me.

Praise the Lord!
